In "The Age of Fable," Mr. Bulfinch endeavored to impart the pleasure of classical learning to the English reader by presenting the stories of Pagan mythology in a form adapted to modern taste. In this volume the attempt has been made to treat in the same way the stories of the second "age of fable"--the age which witnessed the dawn of the several states of modern Europe. (Revised by E.E. Hale.)
