    Bulfinch's Mythology: The Age of Chivalry

    by Thomas Bulfinch

    Book Description

    One of the leading popularizers of classical learning in the nineteenth century, Thomas Bulfinch made the myths and legends of the ancient and medieval world available to American audiences through his three decisive works, "The Age of Fable," "The Age of Chivalry," and "Legends of Charlemagne," collectively published and widely known as "Bulfinch's Mythology," A banking clerk by day, Bulfinch spent his nights skillfully weaving often disparate versions of classical and medieval mythology into a coherent whole. The thoroughness with which he combed through his sources made his mythological books standard reference guides for many years, while the vigor of his storytelling enthralled generations of readers. Written to " teach mythology not as a study but as a relaxation from study, " these timeless volumes span the ages: "The Age Of Fable" describes the gods and goddesses of Greece and Rome, as well as the mythology of the Germanic tribes, England, and the Near East; "The Age of Chivalry" tells the story of King Arthur and his court, Lancelot and Guinevere, and the death of Arthur; and "Legends of Charlemagne" gives a thrilling account of the reign of the first great French emperor, his wars, and his conquests.
