Robert Graves; A new edition edited by Grevel Lindop. Robert Graves (–) was a poet, novelist, and critic.

Its a real shame that it is called "The Greek Myths", it would be more accurate to call it "Robert Graves reports the greek myths and then theorizes about their meanings".I really wouldn't even recommend this book as literature becuase it is a rather dense read and the re-telling of the myths is 't mean to.

Robert Graves (–) was an English novelist, poet, and translator of classical Greek and Roman literature, and one of the most celebrated English writers of the 20th century. Graves published more than novels and collections of poetry, groundbreaking analyses of Greek mythology, and a memoir. On the headstone that marks his grave at Deyá, Marjorca, there is the simple: ‘Robert Graves Poeta ’. And it was this aspect that attracted Charles Brasch, editor, patron and poet, to the works of Graves, calling him ‘among the finest English poets of our time, one of the few who is likely to be remembered as a poet.’.
