Myth into Art is a comparative study of mythological narrative in Greek poetry and the visual arts. Thirty of the major myths are surveyed, focusing on Homer, lyric poetry and Attic tragedy. On the artistic side, the emphasis is on Athenian and South Italian vases. The book offers undergraduate students an introduction both to mythology and to the use of visual sources in the study of Greek myth.

In The Press

'Shapiro extends to students and their lecturers an extremely compelling invitation to study Greek myth as it should be studied, holistically through the visual as well as the textual documentation.' – Scholia Reviews
