    • Note Bibliografiche: Minor pencilling to a few pages. ; Reprint of the 1994 ed. Xiv, 250pp. This is a study of Greek myths in relation to the society in which they were originally told. It does not re-tell the myths; rather, it offers an analysis of how myths played a fundamental role in the lives of the Greeks. The relation between reality and fantasy is discussed by means of three case studies: the landscape, the family, and religion. Most of all, this book seeks to demonstrate how the seemingly endless variations of Greek mythology are a product of its particular people, place, and time. ; 250 pages continua a leggere
