Long regarded as one of the most significant collectors and interpreters of folklore and mythology, Thomas Bulfinch was an esteemed but not affluent scholar from Massachusetts who set about making the world’s folk tales accessible to the lay reader. In this, Bulfinch’s first published work, he explores ancient Greek and Roman folk tales and their interpretation by various authors over the course of thousands of years.
