Alternate title:Greek and Roman legends
Summary:Introduces the principal Greek and Roman legends, examining the differences between Greek legends, which combine victory with difficulty and loss, with those of Rome, which place nationalism, heroism, and virtue above any personal human ties. Covers: the wedding of Peleus and Thetis, the judgment of Paris, the sacrifice of Iphigenia, the Trojan War, Achilles' choice, Odysseus and the Trojan Horse, the rape of the Sabine women, the seven kings of Rome, the Horatii, Horatius at the bridge, Mucius Scaevola and Lars Porsenna, Cincinnatus and Marcus Atilius Regulus, and the legends of Theseus, Jason and the golden fleece, Aeneas, and Romulus and Remus.
