Greek myths arose in response to the great mysteries of life. What was then religion, today is an inexhaustible source of inspiration for literature and cinema. "HISTORIA MINIMA DE LA MITOLOGIA" provides a complete, scholarly and entertaining guide to Greek mythology: how it came about, how it evolved, and how it is still alive in our current culture. The work also details the Olympic family, the gods, demigods, heroes, and tragic families that populate these stories.
