520    "Take a step into the fascinating realm of gods and 
       goddesses, mythical warriors, and legendary kings and 
       queens. Explore the creation stories of world's great 
       cultures, let yourself be gripped by the classic hero 
       narratives like the legend of King Arthur or the 
       adventures of the Monkey King, or shed a tear over heart-
       rending tragedies such as the devastating tale of Orpheus 
       and Eurydice. The Mythology Book retells and explains more
       than 80 classic stories. They include myths that have 
       formed the foundations of many of the world's great 
       religions and inspired artists from Homer and Virgil to 
       Richard Wagner and James Joyce. Delve into each story to 
       discover the meanings behind the myths, getting to the 
       heart of the significance to the cultures they originated 
       in. Divided into seven major sections, The Mythology Book 
       examines myths from every continent and every significant 
       period in history, from ancient Egypt to the Celts, and 
       from the Maya of Mexico and Central America to Aboriginal 
       Australians and the Maori of New Zealand. An eye-catching 
       visual approach includes graphics and feature boxes that 
       summarize the sources, settings, and key characters, set 
       out the main plot points, and place the stories in 
       historical context." -- Dust jacket.
