Read by Paul Newman, Sidney Poitier, Kathleen Turner, and Matthew Broderick
Here are the immortals of Olympus—the gods and goddesses of ancient Greece—as freshly described as if they were alive today.
Mighty Zues with his fistful of thunderbolts; mischievous little Hermes; grey-eyed Athena, godess of wisdom; Asclepius, the first physician; Orpheus and his beloved Euridice; Helios the sun, crossing the heavens in his fiery chariot. . . these and other equally fabulous figures are featured here with their heroic deeds and petty squabbles illuminated in full dimension.
