Better Book Titles

I just found a fantastic web site that re-titles books.  There are several I like.  The one that first grabbed my attention was for The Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne (a horrid book, I assure you - good story, horrid book):

Once I saw that, I thought, "Hey, do they have any mythology titles?"  Obviously since I'm writing about it here on Bubo's Blog, they do.  Oedipus the King by Sophicles is the best by far:

Here are a few runner ups:

Argonautica by Apollonius of Rhodes

Antigone by Sophicles

Paradise Lost by John Milton
