A bit about Edith Hamilton ...

Edith Hamilton (August 12, 1867 - May 31, 1963) was a classicist and educator before she became a writer on mythology. Her most famous books are The Greek Way (1930) and Mythology (1942). Mythology remains in print after six decades and is still used as in introductory text to mythology in high schools and colleges; a mark of its status is that study guides to the book exist.
