The Original Dysfunctional Family

The Original Dysfunctional Family: Basic Classical Mythology for the New Millennium
by Rose Williams



A very accessible introduction to classical mythology, The Original Dysfunctional Family: Basic Classical Mythology for the New Millennium presents the key stories of the twelve Olympians as well as those of the two gods associated with the fruits of the harvest, Demeter and Dionysus. The Greek version of each Olympian is presented first followed by the Roman adaptation. Chock-full of information, this book provides a sound foundation for the beginning student’s further studies in culture, literature, and history. The general reader will find Williams’ style engaging.

Features:
  • Greek version of each Olympian followed by the Roman adaptation
  • Genealogical charts of the Olympian family and their offspring
  • Each set of stories presented in chronological order
  • Notes section for Latin and other special terms employed in the text
  • Illustrations drawn from the corpus of ancient sculpture
