This is a book of short stories of various myths we've all heard. If you are looking for compendium, you could do much worse. Ms. Lang has assembled a very large and entertaining collection of myths. I am sure it would appeal to some, but for me it failed to provide valuable contextual insight for the myths themselves, and rather distracted me from the focus of each story.

Helen Stratton’s most popular book is Beowulf. A Book of Myths by. Jeanie Lang, Helen Stratton (Illustrator).

Helen Isobel Mansfield Ramsey Stratton (5 April 1867 – 4 June 1961) was a British artist and book illustrator. Stratton was born in Nowganj, Bundelkhand, Madhya Pradesh, India on 5 April 1867, the daughter of a surgeon in the Indian military service John Proudfoot Stratton (1830–1895) and Georgina Anne Anderson. Soon after Helen's birth, and following her father's retirement, the family moved to England, settling in Bath.

A Book of Mythsby Jean Lang. Why a book filled with stories that has already been told and retold in other published compilations? It is worth noting that this collection dates back to 1915, a time when such types of compilations are not yet in abundance. Aside from that, the author, Jeanie Lang, stressed in her preface that the stories "are not presented to the student of folklore as a fresh contribution to his knowledge.

It contains classical literature works from over two thousand years. A Book of Myths contains sixteen original drawings in color by Helen Stratton. Most of these titles have been out of print and off the bookstore shelves for decades. The book series is intended to preserve the cultural legacy and to promote the timeless works of classical literature.

Unlike some other reproductions of classic texts (1) We have not used OCR(Optical Character Recognition), as this leads to bad quality books with introduced typos. (2) In books where there are images such as portraits, maps, sketches etc We have endeavoured to keep the quality of these images, so they represent accurately the original artefact. Although occasionally there may be certain imperfections with these old texts, we feel they deserve to be made available for future generations to enjoy.

My 11 year old son has been loving this book and we thought we'd write a review.

This book has many very interesting myths in it and has you wanting to read more. It's pretty cool that it was written in 1915, but of course that means that some of the language is a bit old-fashioned. It's very readable. The only downside that we see is that a few of the stories go on a bit longer than they would need to.

Overall an excellent book for anyone who loves mythology. By the way, my favorite story is the story of Proserpine!

This is a book with somewhat dated language, but the illustrations are gorgeous! I bought it for the art alone, although it has some more obscure myths in it, like Idas and Marpessa.It is not easy to find an original hardcover edition in good shape, by the way.
