Bulfinch's Mythology

This wonderful site provides the complete text of Bulfinch's Mythology, originally titled The Age of Fable and still the standard guide to Western mythology. The value of this site lies not merely in its posting of Bulfinch's original text, but in its regularly updated collection of hyperlinks to literary and historical source documents on the Web. In addition, the site allows users to search the three main sections of the text for keywords, scan a list of poets and poetry cited in each section, and consult notes written by the site's author, Bob Fisher. These notes provide the benefit of additional information and scholarly insight gathered since Bulfinch's first publication in 1855. Links are also supplied to additional materials on Bulfinch and his famous work. This is an excellent Website for any teacher at the secondary or post-secondary level hoping to have students engage with the underlying myths of Western Civilization.
