Good Reads: Learn About Greek Mythology

Have always enjoyed learning about Greek myths and legends. Are you familiar with the harpies?

“In Greek mythology, the Harpies were monstrous bird-like creatures with a woman’s face. Believers thought they acted at the behest of the gods, carried out acts of vengeance and were snatchers of human souls.”

That’s a quote from one of my posts at Daily Two Cents.

Are you familiar with Edith Hamilton (1867 – 1963) ? She was an American educator, a classical scholar, and her area of expertise was Greek and Roman mythology. She was so good that in 1957, the Greeks made her an honorary citizen of Athens.

Well I’m no Edith Hamilton, but I do have a collection on Pinterest labeled Legends, Myths, Fables, Folklore, Culture. :) It’s an interesting board. In addition to pins about Greek and Roman mythology, there are also links to informative articles about Egyptian, Chinese and Norse mythology; angels, unicorns, and dragons; and even urban legends.

Want to have a little fun! TAKE A QUIZ:

There are nine muses of Greek mythology. These muses were also goddesses. They were the daughters of Zeus and Mnemosyne (the goddess of memory). They can sing, dance, play and are care free; and can inspire those they touch to do the same. One of the muses is named Urania – The Muse of Astronomy.

Can you name the other eight (8)?

Without Googling or checking an encyclopedia or other reference work or cheating and the clicking on the link below that leads to the correct answer.

Write the answers down on a piece of paper or in a Word doc or notepad, and then click the link to check.
