Tales of the Ancient Greek Heroes
Roger Lancelyn Green had a passion and talent for translating the complex language of myths into a format that fascinates and engages readers of all ages – and has done for generations. In Tales of the Greek Heroes, he brings together a broad collection of stories of the Heroic Age. This beautifully imagined Folio edition includes newly commissioned, hand-painted illustrations that vividly depict the myths. It is a collection that will be avidly read and treasured by children, and rediscovered with nostalgic zeal by adults.
‘Great feats of both heroism and cruelty are recorded in these powerful and dramatic stories which have influenced storytelling ever since.’
