Hesiod: Theogony & Works and Days

by

Hesiod: Theogony & Works and Days Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Greek poet Hesiod took many lines of thought and knowledge - myth, fable, personal experience, practical understanding - and wove them into one great whole. He did as much with the origins of the Greek gods in the Theogony, and then did the same in creating his manual of moral and practical advice, Works and Days.

Here, Stephanie Nelsons translation of Works and Days is paired with Richard S. Caldwells take on the Theogony. Along with introductory essays, these comprehensible versions of Hesiods two best-known poems make it easy for readers to see why Hesiods writings continue to resound through the ages.

Synopsis:

This translation of "Works and Days", Hesiod's manual of moral and practical advice, is here paired with Caldwell’s "Theogony" and includes introductions to each piece, notes, and an interpretive essay.

Synopsis:

For courses in Classical mythology where source readings are used.
