This little volume is the outcome of several years experience in telling to classes of children the classic myths, both southern and northern. The insight and interest displayed by the children encourage the authors to hope that other teachers and pupils may enjoy the myths here reproduced. The interest shown at present in the teaching of myths to children seems to call for some such simple volume, giving theN orse myths in suitable form for use with pupils as well as for the childrens home reading. There are various collections of the Greek tales, but the books dealing with theN orse myths seem to be more or less cumbered with detail, and, therefore, not adapted to very young readers. The experience of the authors satisfies them that the teaching of myths should begin with those of theN orth, and that the Greek tales should be given later, with comparisons and references to theN orse myths. The stories which were dear to our own northern forefathers stir our children more deeply and are more congenial to them than those which come down to us from the Greeks. This is perfectly reasonable. We are delighted to publish this classic book as part of our extensive Classic Library collection. Many of the books in our collection have been out of print for decades, and therefore have not been accessible to the general public. The aim of our publishing program is to facilitate rapid access to this vast reservoir of literature, and our view is that this is a significant literary work, which deserves to be brought back into print after many decades. The contents of the vast majority of titles in the Classic Library have been scanned from the original works. To ensure a high quality product, each title has been meticulously hand curated by our staff. Our philosophy has been guided by a desire to provide the reader with a book that is as close as possible to ownership of the original work. We hope that you will enjoy this wonderful classic work, and that for you it becomes an enriching experience.
