Iain Burns has sent this, which I pass on for you to investigate further if you are interested:
Can I draw to your members’ attention a book called Tales from Olympus which contains a selection of 9 re-told epic poems in modern idiom. The book contains contextual notes to explain the true origins of the stories and a full glossary of terms. It makes a perfect introduction to the classic tales of Homer, Ovid for readers of all ages – but ideal for school as they are told with tongue in cheek.
The book can be ordered from https://shop.classicalmusichomepage.com/product/show/11564988?tab=Synopsis
