Text of the Greek myth of Athena and Arachne, much simplified from the Bullfinch's mythology version. If I'm reading aloud, I usually use the somewhat less simpliied version that is in the same collection as this file--and I pause to explain some things. But if I have to pass out the text for silent reading or homework, I use this version.
