    The Greek Myths is both a literary presentation and a speculative analysis of the mythology of ancient Greece. The myths are retold by nameless narrators in prosaic style mimicking classical Greek oratory; they communicate the stories of the gods, heroes, monsters, and wars that shaped the cultural and religious identity of ancient Greece. The theoretical sections of the book, rejected by modern science, speculate on a matriarchal cult that predeceased ancient Greek culture.
