Thomas Bulfinch (July 15, 1796 – May 27, 1867) explains the his work is “an attempt tell the stories of mythology in such a manner as to make them a source of amusement. We have endeavored to tell them correctly, according to the ancient authorities, so that when the reader finds them referred to he may not be at a loss to recognize the reference. Thus we hope to teach mythology not as a study, but as a relaxation from study; to give our work the charm of a story-book, yet by means of it to impart a knowledge of an important branch of education.” The Bulfinch version of myth, presents the myths in their literary versions, without unnecessary violence, sex, psychology or ethnographic information. The Bulfinch myths are an indispensable guide to the cultural values of the American 19th century.

Wow.....

This is such a interesting subject. So why does it sound so boring when they talk about it? Episode 2 sounded like it was being read by Siri. And the guy on episode 1 couldn't pronounce chivalry properly. I was excited when I saw this podcast. Just wish the people who made it were equally as excited to talk about it. Disappointing.

Terribly reading!

Why would someone volunteer to read about a subject they seem not to know anything about? This is a wonderful subject and book. However, readers are stilted and can’t even pronounce words and names. Too bad!
