THEOI, E-TEXTS LIBRARY
 

The Theoi Classical E-Texts Library is a collection of works from ancient Greek and Roman literature in translation. The theme of the library is classical mythology and so the selection presented consists primarily of ancient poetry (epic, lyric, bucolic, et. al.), drama and prose renditions of myth.

The Theoi Greek Mythology Website (www.theoi.com) was compiled several years before the creation of this online library and, in many cases, quotes different translations. It also draws on a considerably wider selection of classical literature. For more information on that site's content please refer to the Theoi Greek Mythology Site Bibliography.
