Description
Fiction and non-fiction literature, movies, television, and even advertising are not only full of mythological references, they're often based on classical myths. Classical mythology endures not just because it is such an integral part of our history, literature, and culture, but because myths tell us who we are - as Bill Moyers says, ' . . .what human beings have in common is revealed in myths.'

In the second edition of The Complete Idiot's Guide to Mythology , readers will find-

Complete explanations of Greek and Roman mythological stories A complete listing of all mythological characters with descriptions. Mythological creatures borrowed from Greek mythology by J.K. Rowling for her Harry Potter series Background on the mythology used in recent television series and movies, such as O Brother, Where Art Thou
