So much modern culture traces its origins back to Greek and Roman mythology, providing wonderful references to make your conversation more heroic and raise your imagination closer to the gods. Sail through these fifty 30-second legends to discover what Hercules did to deserve his twelve labors, why Odysseus took ten years to travel 500 miles, and how Narcissus found the love of his life. It covers gods and goddesses, heroes and monsters, story locations and the great storytellers. There are also condensed versions of the tragic tales alongside explanations of their modern legacies: from the Oedipus Complex to the Narcissus Syndrome. Read in Russian by Dimitriy Kreminskiy and Pavel Dorofeyev, unabridged.
