How many of you were aware of Greek mythology before reading the percy jackson series?

Post by veni-vidi-vici on Thu Apr 01, 2010 9:52 am

First topic message reminder :

Title says it all, how many of you were actually aware of the existence and the details of Greek mythology

Myself:

I've never studied it in school but its always fascinated me and I've read various Greek Myths and legends since about Age 7. I've looked at a lot of the general mythology and done research on it online.

FIRST WARNING! SPAM AND GENERAL OFF-TOPICNESS!



I operate differently to other mods. I offer 2 warnings and then I lock the thread. Delete the posts. And keep it locked for a week.


No more speak of Vampires.



I got into Greek Mythology after playing Age of Mythology, I then visited the library every Friday after school until I exhaughsted their Greek Mythology recourses and have been hooked ever since.

theoi link Listen on Rick's site is theoi dot com which an excellent source for Greek myth info. I agree with greek-geek whole heartily. Especially you older members going off topic. Start an Egyptian topic if that is what you want to discuss.

I found the theoi site a bit hard to use though, I found it a bit messy, though I loved the info. Anyways I found out about Greek mythology from the time I got into Julies Ceaser and then I got to Roman Mythology, found out about the Greek mythology and borrowed every book I could get my hands on about it.

I knew almost everything about Greek, its Culture, and absolutly the Myths...My Grandparents live in Greece, so everytime i visit them all by myself. They Taught all about its culture, and taught me how to Speak, Read, and Write Greek, i find Writeing it is VERY difficult! My Grandma always told there Myths, and everything about the Gods of Olympus! I was so exited when someone fianlly wrote a good Book Series, on Greek Myths!!!!!

Bit off topic but I heard somewhere that modern Greek is just a dialect of Ancient Greek.

I didn't know much AT ALL! I only knew the three main gods (Zeus Poseidon,Hades) and what they did, but then I read the PJO series and learned a lot about the gods! I can even name all them now!

So did you learn all of this from independent further reading or just from the series itself?

I'm studying it at school.... and I have been obsessed with the subject since I was 7.

So yeah die-hard Myth fan.
Heard about the Percy Jackson series when it was first advertised but didn't want to read it because I thought it wouldn't stick to the material...but now I'm a fan Smile

PJO does twist the myths a little bit... b/c in the old myths they sadly weren't as humorous to read about. (hi, dionysus)
