Bulfinch's Mythology, or The Age of Fable is Thomas Bulfinch's brilliant reconstruction of the ancient myths and legends that form the backbone of western culture. Drawn from a variety of classic sources, including Ovid's Metamorphoses, Egyptian myths, Eastern mythology, and Hindu, Norse, and Celtic works, these selections form a remarkable tapestry of human endeavor: dreams, illusions, adventures, loves lost, and loves found. Included are the legends of Cupid and Psyche, Venus and Adonis, Hero and Leander, Hercules, and many others.


Moving from Chaos to the adventures of Ulysses, Part One contains the first three sections in The Age of Fable: the Ages of Gold, Silver, and Bronze.


Part Two includes Aeneas, Thor, Beowulf, and other heroes.
