Favorite Mythopeic books and pagans
First an apology if anyone felt I was bashing pagans. I was not. I am
completely fascinated by all
religions. I am interested in myth and folklore and really have no bias.
The information I have was from many interviews. That's what I do. I go
out and collect stories and interviews, especially on folktales and ghost
stories and such. So I do aologize if anyone felt I was bashing. I think
Neo-Pagans are great.
Here's my favorite books of all time with myths, etc.
Homer's Iliad and Odyssey
The stories of Orpheus and the Underworld [any]
The stories of Hades and Persephone [any]

The poems of William Blake [Jerusalem] Coleridge [Rime of Ancient Mariner
and Christabel], and Shelley [Prometheus Unbound]

myths in them.
