A striking companion volume to Greek Myths and Legends, exploring the ancient origins of Ancient Greek culture, from its tribal beginnings to its foundational impact on modern life. Gorgeous Collector's Edition. The period of the first Ancient Greek peoples, the Mycenean civilization, from the 1700s BCE, through to the Greek Dark Ages and the rise of classical Antiquity more than a thousand years is one of profound significance for Western modes of thought. The first cities, works of art, the stories of Olympic Gods and heroic warriors in classical literature find their origins in the traditions of this era. This new book is the perfect companion to the Greek Myths and Legends in the same series of beautiful collector's editions, and sits alongside the other great cultures of the early world. Flame Tree Collector's Editions present the foundations of speculative fiction, authors, myths and tales without which the imaginative literature of the twentieth century would not exist, bringing the best, most influential and most fascinating works into a striking and collectable library. Each book features a new introduction and a Glossary of Terms. AUTHOR: Jackson is General Editor of The World's Greatest Myths and Legends series, with titles including 'Myths of Babylon', 'Indian Myth', 'Egyptian Myth', 'Norse Myth' and 'Polynesian Island Myth'. He is editor of 'Myths and Legends' and foreword writer for 'Celtic Myths and Tales'.
