Martina Hirschberger, Bryn Mawr Classical Review
"... a subtle and stimulating analysis of Ovid's reception of Hesiod ... attentively redacted and expertly fashioned. ... The quality of the volume is unquestionably high; it will certainly stimulate further work and I recommend it to classicists. ... a considerable success, [which] forms a significant contribution to an area of research which shows no sign of exhaustion. ... an indispensable reference point for the future study of Hesiod and Ovid."
Stella Alekou, The Classical Review
"Ziogas' enthusiasm for the visibility and depth of the Hesiodic influence on Ovid's work is overall justified, his book is extremely well-researched, his arguments are convincing and lucidly argued, and in addition to the main lines of his argument, he offers a multitude of inventive and stimulating readings of various Ovidian passages against their intertexts, both Hesiodic and numerous others, archaic and Hellenistic."
