From 11:00PM PDT on Friday, July 1 until 5:00AM PDT on Saturday, July 2, the Shmoop engineering elves will be making tweaks and improvements to the site. That means Shmoop will be unavailable for use during that time. Thanks for your patience!
Our mythology guides let you pry into the online profiles, inboxes, and diaries of the gods. We'll give you the dish on their personal lives and all the dramatic pickles they found themselves in. Or, you know, caused.
Greek and Roman Gods + Figures
Greek and Roman mythology is intricate enough to befuddle the most studious outsider. But don't worry—Shmoop has you covered from biographies of Zeus and Aphrodite to what Achilies and Agamemnon are flaming about on Facebook.
It turns out the gods and heroes of ancient Greece and Rome aren't too different from us modern folk. These myths have all the romance, feuds, and transmutation you'd expect from the next school dance.
