    Can anyone recommend books that collect, tell, or re-tell myths (I already know Grimm, Homer), modern as well as classic/ old (for example English, Welsh, Irish, Eastern European, but also from other continents)?
    Thanks for tips! :)

    Bullfinches Mythology is a classic.

    Oscar Wilde's Fairy tales are a little different, incredibly sad but beautiful fairy tales. I think the main title is "The Happy Prince And Other Tales" but they have been published under several titles.

    I think I even own Wildes complete work - but have not read them so far. Thanks for reminding me.

    Tamyra, the later volumes seem to be the sort of book I was looking for, thanks.
