Persian Myths * Vesta Sarkhosh Curtis (isbn 0292711581 * 1993)

Persian Myths is a subject I am not totally unfamiliar with, but I am certainly no expert. Exactly a year ago I reviewed another book about Persian mythology and also I have some Zoroastrian literature. Just like The Wise Lord Of The Sky this booklet is mostly about the pre-Zoroastrian Persia (nowadays Iran). Curtis re-tells tales and myths and while doing this you become familiar with the most important deities, characters, etc. It is a nice book to have on the bookshell, because there is an index and a bibliography and the book itself is definately worth a read. <26/9/05>
