✏The Library of Greek Mythology Book Summary : The Bibliotheca (Ancient Greek: ΒΙΒΛΙΟ&thΗήΚΗ Bibliothēkē, "Library"), also known as the Bibliotheca of Pseudo-Apollodorus, is a compendium of Greek myths and heroic legends, arranged in three books, generally dated to the first or second century AD.The author was traditionally thought to be Apollodorus of Athens, but that attribution is now regarded as false, and so "Pseudo-" was added to ApollodorusThe Bibliotheca has been called "the most valuable mythographical work that has come down from ancient times". An epigram recorded by the important intellectual Patriarch Photius I of Constantinople expressed its purpose:It has the following not ungraceful epigram: 'Draw your knowledge of the past from me and read the ancient tales of learned lore. Look neither at the page of Homer, nor of elegy, nor tragic muse, nor epic strain. Seek not the vaunted verse of the cyc≤ but look in me and you will find in me all that the world contains'.The brief and unadorned accounts of myth in the Bibliotheca have led some commentators to suggest that even its complete sections are an epitome of a lost work.

✏Creation Stories in Greek Mythology Book Summary : Like peoples throughout history, the ancient Greeks maintained largely fanciful stories about how the world, animals, and humans came to be. At the core of those tales were descriptions of the origins of the gods. Unlike many societies, which envisioned gods fashioning the universe, the Greeks held that the universe came first and gave birth to the gods.

✏The Idea of the Library in the Ancient World Book Summary : In The Idea of the Library in the Ancient World Yun Lee Too argues that the ancient library was much more than its incarnation at Alexandria, which has been the focus for students of the subject up till now. In fact, the library is a complex institution with many different forms. It can be a building with books, but it can also be individual people, or the individual books themselves. In antiquity, the library's functions are numerous: as an instrument of power, of memory, of which it has various modes; as an articulation of a political ideal, an art gallery, a place for sociality. Too indirectly raises important conceptual questions about the contemporary library, bringing to these the insights that a study of antiquity can offer.
