  The following story introduces young readers to the classical Greek hero Hercules, who is also known as Herakles, and the Hydra that he fights. It’s an excerpt from the children’s book “Herakles the Hero of Thebes and Other Heroes of the Myth” by Mary E. Burt. The Second Labor – Hercules Kills the Water-Snake of Lake Lerna.   Heracles, Greek Herakles, Roman Hercules, one of the most famous Greco-Roman legendary ionally, Heracles was the son of Zeus and Alcmene (see Amphitryon), granddaughter of swore that the next son born of the Perseid house should become ruler of Greece, but—by a trick of Zeus’s jealous wife, Hera—another child, the sickly Eurystheus, was born .

  Herakles was one of the greatest of all Greek heroes, and his exploits have been celebrated in paintings, songs, poetry, and sculpture for thousands of years. Now it's time for him to have his own children's book, one devoted exclusively to his labors and adventures. Written by John Harris Pages: Covering both Greek and Roman material, the book highlights areas of consensus and dissent, indicating avenues for further study on both details and broader issues. Easy to read, Herakles is perfectly suited to students of classics and related disciplines, and of interest to anyone looking for an insight into ancient Greece’s most popular hero.
