Greek and Roman Mythology


Mythology is the study of whatever religious or heroic legends are so foreign to a student's experience that he cannot believe them to be true, (Robert Graves 1968 ) New Larousse Encyclopedia of Mythology

Had I the power that some say Dian had,
Thy temples should be planted presently
With horns, as was Actaeon's; and the hounds
Should drive upon thy new-transformed limbs,
Unmannerly intruder as thou art!
