Myths and Legends of the Ancient Near East

In this treasure-house of a book, Rachel Storm assembles a fascinating collection of myths and legends from all over the ancient Near East, from their distinctive origins to the many-textured creations they became. Every civilisation had its towers and pyramids – its gateways to heaven; every culture had its Underworld, ruled over by a dark lord and visited by only the bravest of heroes. Legend merges with history – Daniel thrown to the lions by Darius, king of the Persians, is miraculously saved by his belief in a true God. From the Assyrian epic of Gilgamesh to the heroic feats of the Amazons; from Midas and his golden touch to the Arabian Nights entertainments; from Babylon and Thebes to Persia and Arabia, this book throws open a window on the lives and beliefs of the men and women who inhabited these ancient lands.
