Between 1855 and 1863, Thomas Bulfinch published the three volumes of his masterpiece, Bulfinch’s Mythology. Each volume of this signature contribution to literature focuses on a different historical era in mythology—from ancient Greek and Roman fables, to tales of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table, and into the Middle Ages with stories of great heroism and romance. A bank clerk by day, Bulfinch sought to bring enlightenment to his fellow men and women through his meticulous research and elegant retellings of some of the world’s most important myths. Every reader seeking an introduction, a refresher, or simply a new take on the great legends of the past should pick up Bulfinch’s Mythology.
