The "Argonautica of Apollonius" is the only full remaining account of Jason's voyage in quest of the Golden Fleece. Written in the third century B. C., it met with derision in the poet's native city, Alexandria, and the second version was first acclaimed by the Rhodians before its more widespread success. Though Apollonius used the manner and matter of epic, he wrote from a personal viewpoint, as a critical observer. His understanding on human nature, his unerring eye for dramatic moment, and his quiet sense of humor give reality and spirit to this fantastic story of high romance and incredible adventure. Includes a bibliography, glossary, and a map.

(Key Words: Classics, Ancient History, Greece, Egypt, Apollonius, Jason, Golden Fleece, Alexandria, Epics ).
