Their unforgettable characters, impossible predicaments, and insightful wisdom lent them as wonderful source material for future authors and artists ranging from the Greek epic singers of the seventh century B.C.E to the modern day Aboriginal storytellers of North America. Myths have inspired, and continue to inspire, modern artistic works including plays, sculptures, and novels. Adapted for North American students and teachers, and designed for college, secondary, and elementary grades, this comprehensive survey of world myth provides carefully chosen selections from three world mythologies: Ancient Egyptian, Greek, and Native American. Also included are sample review questions and project ideas that will prove helpful for lesson planning and the practice of essential writing and reading skills.
