As the title implies, an online encyclopedia of myth - some articles are quite short, but the scope of this site is global. Other areas include folklore, bestiary, heroes and images. Use the QUICK JUMP menu on the right to navigate to GREEK MYTHOLOGY.
Cartoon-style site with information about the major Olympian gods and assorted heroes (Jason, Theseus, Hercules, Odysseus, Bellerophon and Perseus). Essays about the gods are comprehensive and easy to read; graphics are superb.
Use the IMMORTALS to find an alphabetical list of the gods. Greek names are used, but there is a helpful Greek/Roman name reference. Information about the gods includes pronunciation help, well-crafted, accurate short essays and citations from Homeric poetry for each divinity.
An old standard and classic reference for the stories about gods and heroes. Often includes references to other poetic works that allude to the characters of Greek mythology. Stories here are told like a story and make for a much more fun and interesting read than the more encyclopediac references above.
This is an amazing site with thousands of cross-linked references, incredible art and citations of the literary references relevant to each character and story. Parada uses the transliterated forms of the Greek names, which are not always spelled in a familiar way. However, the value of this site is immeasurable, and it will provide a useful, detailed point of reference for any student of the Classics, from beginners to professionals.
