Old Tales Retold from Grecian Mythology in Talks Around the Fire, 1876
1876. Young people who are cultivating a taste of a higher quality of literature than the volumes of fiction that crowd our juvenile libraries will find pleasure and instruction in this interesting work. They will be surprised to discover so much that is worthy of study in the strange religious fables of the Greeks and Romans; that three were rational ideas embodied in them; and that, while they were full of poetic fancies, they also contained excellent and impressive religious truths, which really exercised a wholesome influence over the people that received and believed them. Partial Contents: Greece of Homer; Zeus; Divine Mother; Divine Huntress; Goddess of Love; Gods of Business, Wine and War; Goddess of Hearth and Home; Nymphus; Minor Deities.
