Greek Mythology help?

Postby Ireclan » Tue Apr 22, 2008 2:23 am

I'm really into Greek mythology at the moment, and am trying really hard to read the Iliad and Odyssey of Homer (Lattimore translation). Unfortunately, I don't always understand the fine points of the narrative, resulting in me having incomplete knowledge. This, of course, irritates me. So, in conclusion, does anyone know of any good Greek mythology communities? I tried Mythography, but their forums seem rather disused.

I have found Theoi.com pretty reliable in the past.

You can, of course, post questions here with a reasonable chance of useful answers. ;)

Thank you for this! That website looks very interesting and useful... not to mention one of the best visual presentations I've seen in some time.

Well, perhaps I should have been more specific. I'm looking for a community of fellow Greek Myth lovers. I've tried Mythography and another Myth site, but both seem ill-used. I will, of course, try posting here as a last resort (after all, this is not a mythology forum).

The open board handles a whole hodge podge of questions; that includes mythology.
