The Library presents in 3 books a grand precis of conventional Greek mythology and heroic legends. Written in transparent and unaffected sort, the compendium faithfully follows the Greek literary resources. it's therefore a big checklist of Greek debts of the starting place and early heritage of the area and their race. This paintings has been attributed to Apollodorus of Athens (born c. one hundred eighty BCE), a pupil of Aristarchus. however the textual content as we now have it used to be written through an writer most likely residing within the first or moment century of our period. In his hugely valued notes to the Loeb Classical Library version (which is in volumes) J. G. Frazer cites the significant passages of different historical writers the place each one specific tale is informed and compares many of the models to these within the Library.
