Book Description:

Volume 1 of OLYMPIANS, ZEUS: King OF THE GODS, introduces readers to the ruler of the Olympian Pantheon, telling his story from his boyhood to his ascendance to supreme power.

Disclaimers about book’s content: no

Discussion Topics: 

Questions for students:

  1. How many Titans were there? Can you name them and list their characteristics?
  2. How does the myth of Zeus explain why our continents are laid out the way they are? What is a modern explanation?
  3. page 62: “But Zeus had too much of his father in him.” Compare this to page 10: Who else had too much of his father in him? What does this mean? How are fathers and sons depicted in this story?
  4. This book ends after a series of great battles. Much has changed for Zeus and his family. And yet, there is still a great deal of tension. What do you think will happen next? Why?
  5. Several times we are told, “That’s a story for another day.” What do you make of this? What effect does this self conscious appearance of the narrator have on the story?
