Greek Mythology

Here's something I had been interested in for a good long while (Though in the past decade or so, I've kind of drifted away from it due to other commitments and new interests). Starting around 6th grade, I had been reading and attempting to interpret the many works of Greek myth. The way the stories explain every aspect of life is nothing less than fascinating. Over the course, I've read numerous works (some partially, some entirely) including: The Theogony and Works and Days by Hesiod, The Odyssey and Iliad by Homer, Oedipus Tyrannus and Antigone by Sophocles, works from Sappho of Lesbos, Aeschylus, Euripides, Aristophanes, among others. The tales I have in this section are my interpretations of what I've read and learned of the mythology.

There are plenty of other sites out there about Greek myth, but I tried to separate myself by writing it out as simply and engaging as possible. Anyone at any age level should be able to easily understand, learn, and enjoy the tales presented. So sit back, relax, and gain a little mythological perspective as you click on through this section.

Now having learned all that, I also have a selection prepared of etymology (that being, the origin of words and their meaning).
