One of 19th-century America's greatest authors recounts timeless tales from Greek mythology in this grand hardcover facsimile. Hawthorne's evocative interpretations of stories about Theseus and the Minotaur, Circe the enchantress, Proserpine's abduction into the underworld, Jason's quest for the Golden Fleece, and other ancient legends are graced by 24 delicate color and black-and-white illustrations by Virginia Frances Sterrett.

Author Biography

Author of The Scarlet Letter and The House of Seven Gables, Nathaniel Hawthorne (1804-64) wrote the stories that lie at the heart of the American Romantic movement. His novels' portraits of colonial life reflect his Puritan heritage, and his short story collections, A Wonder-Book for Girls and Boys and its successor, Tanglewood Tales, consist of adaptations of Greek myths.
American artist and illustrator Virginia Frances Sterrett (1900-31) began her tragically brief career at the age of 19, shortly after being diagnosed with tuberculosis. She also illustrated Old French Fairy Tales and Arabian Nights.
