With a scholarly article like this, I think it's particularly important that you give the sources, e.g., Hesiod, right? That is, it is an important aspect of the topic itself of Greek mythology how we now know about these myths. --Larry Sanger 21:11, 20 January 2008 (CST)

Strongly agreed. Also to be noted is that the Graves retelling (mentioned in the bibliography, is any material from there?) is a kind of compendium with variants in footnotes. I've encountered the critical opinion that it is a good retelling but sometimes imaginative so far as the historicity of identified geographic locales is concerned, but cannot evaluate that opinion.

wording of sentence 1

The wording of sentence one makes it sound as if "other mythology" was also developed by the Greeks, not just Greek mythology. David E. Volk 13:26, 17 February 2008 (CST)
