Greek and Roman tales are more popular and influential than ever and can be seen in all aspects of our modern culture. Brush up Your Mythology! takes an irreverent look at those gods and spirits whose myths and legends have become commonplace today. Chaos, Mother Earth, and Cupid appear, along with the origins of the days of the week and an alphabetical listing of all the important gods and goddesses. Black-and-white illustrations further enliven this terrific reference book.
