Just in Case you Find yourself Interested in Mythology Now

corby's picture

The Marriage of Cadmus and Harmony is the most extraordinary work on mythology I've ever read. It reveals things you would never get from more traditional books like Bullfinch.

The most extraordinary revelation is that the entirety of Greek myth is in fact just that: one gigantic interlocking story. An amazing, readable work of scholarship. The weird thing is that Roberto Calasso's similar treatment of Indian mythology Ka is an impenetrable snoozer. Perhaps it was the translator's fault.

This book probably won't help much with quest logistics. But you'll enjoy the trip.
