Description
Follow the strange and wondrous adventures of Jason and his Argonauts -- through uncharted waters where clashing rocks dash the sea, to shores where harpies with wings of birds and heads of women torment poor mortals. Listen to the songs of the Argonaut Orpheus, songs of the creation of Heaven and Earth, Zeus's battle with the Titans, Pandora and her jar of troubles, Persephone in the Underworld, and the great labors of Hercules. This volume, with the stories retold for young readers by Padraic Colum (1881-1972), a poet, playwright, and a leader of the Irish Renaissance, was originally published in 1921. "Colum's stirring telling of the Greek epics is still unequaled as an introduction to the classic myths for young readers." B & W illustrations.
