Abstract "Classical Mythology in Context offers students an approach to understanding how Greek myths acquire meaning and significance in their historical, theoretical, comparative, and later artistic contexts. It integrates these four areas of inquiry into a dynamic, challenging, yet accessible format. Classical Mythology in Context is further distinguished by its inclusion of a robust se-lection of Greek sources, as well as Roman and Ancient Near Eastern texts"-- Provided by publisher.
