Where do I start on Ancient Greek mythology? Specifically, the pantheon of Gods and the stories of the heroes
>>
>>7554874
Ovid's Metamorphoses
>>
Mythology - Edith Hamilton
The Library of Greek Mythology - Apollodurus
The Iliad - Homer
The Odyssey - Homer
The Aeneid - Virgil
The Theban Plays - Sophocles
Heracles, Medea, Hecuba - Euripedes
The Oresteia - Aeschylus
The Metamorphoses - Ovid
Heroides - Ovid

This is good if you have no knowledge at all and don't want to read Wikipedia articles

otherwise just read the original sources if you can handle them. Ovid and Homer
>>
>>7554924
forgot to add:

Theogony - Hesiod
>>
>>7554924
No Robert Graves?

>>7554933
Interchangeable with Hamilton

Always start with Oedipus Rex

>>7554874
Just read The Metamorphoses.

Graze a wiki or two just for context on the main pantheon and then jump right into the iliad and odyssey.

>>7554933
I have the Robert Graves one.

Is it good? I'm learning a lot from it.

Better than Hamilton.

E. Halmiton is a shit book. The best books of mythology are in portuguese and spanish.
