Praise

“In first place, the stories are beautiful and satisfying in themselves. In the second place, they have deeply affected our own literature.” –Rex Warner

“Shakespeare, Shelley, Tennyson and many others got their knowledge of Greek mythology from the often ironical–and always sophisticated–narratives of Ovid…Detail after detail fixes these myths in the memory…The Golden Age of Greece is dim today, but in Gods and Men the golden apples still shine upon the bough.” –The New York Times

“Rex Warner retells thirty-eight famous myths of ancient Greece that ought to be the intellectual heritage of all the young.” –The New York Times

“The British critic V. S. Pritchett once described Mr. Warner as ‘the only outstanding novelist of ideas whom the decade of ideas produced.’” –The New York Times
