Bulfinch’s Mythology: The Age of Fable
Thomas Bulfinch’s extensive collection of stories from the mythologies of Greece, Egypt, Persia, India, the British Isles, and Scandinavia.
Thomas Bulfinch’s goal was to make the ancient myths accessible to a wide audience, and so it is suitable for children. From Bulfinch’s introduction, “Our work is not for the learned, nor for the theologian, nor for the philosopher, but for the reader of English literature, of either sex, who wishes to comprehend the allusions so frequently made by public speakers, lecturers, essayists, and poets, and those which occur in polite conversation.”
