The definitive global anthology of writings about dragons, from Ancient Egypt to the modern daySince the earliest moments of human history, dragons have occupied a place in our imaginations.
Bringer of night in Ancient Egypt; mortal enemy of the elephant in South Asia; slain by a god in Sanskrit hymn.
In the Book of Revelation, there is the Leviathan; in Loch Ness, a monster.
Their crushing coils and their treasure hoards are found throughout literature and language: in the Old English of Beowulf, in the Elvish of Tolkien, in the far-flung travels of Marco Polo. The Penguin Book of Dragons is the definitive collection of all this and more: two thousand years of legend and lore about the menace and majesty of dragons.
