Hamilton’s classic examines the roots and purpose of mythology as it relates the Greek, Roman, and Norse tales that hold the seeds of so much of Western literature. Narrator Suzanne Toren does an admirable job of balancing the scholarly and the literary. She moves smoothly between academic theory and an entertaining retelling of classic tales, adding layers of new understanding to these ancient stories. Unencumbered by sound effects and assorted voices, the listener can focus on the power of the stories themselves and develop a new appreciation for how attuned to our deep-seated psyche and human motivations our ancient ancestors were. The attentive listener will come away from this listening experience with a basic understanding of how myth is integral to our present-day culture.
