Overview

Hesiod's Calendar: A Version of Hesiod's Theogony and Works and Days by Robert Saxton

A clear, modern translation of two vital works of Greek mythology, this collection presents The Theogony, telling the story of how the gods of Ancient Greece established control over the cosmos, and Works and Days, suggesting that labor is the universal lot of humankind as well as the source of all good in the world. Here are exhilarating and earthy tales of shepherds, farmers, peasants, astrology, the Olympian muses, and the great Zeus himself. These sonnet translations of Ancient Greek poems are an excellent source of musicality, craftsmanship, and wit.
