Greek Myths

Greek myths and legends have been told for thousands of years, and they have survived the ages because they offer much to the reader/viewer/listener ~ entertainment, insight into human nature, and lessons about morality and justice. Myths may appear simple, but they are somewhat like an onion. They have many layers of meaning.
