'But how did it all begin?' The eternal question that Man has always asked of his universe also forms the opening words of this book. In answer and in the voice of the born story-teller Calasso leads us through the maze back to the time when the gods were not yet born from the original coupling of Uranus and Ge Mother Earth; then forward again all the way to the death of Odysseus which marks the end of the age of heroes; and—most important of all—to the marriage of Cadmus and Harmony the last occasion when the gods sat down at a feast with mortal men.
