Overview

Theogony and Works and Days / Edition 1

With careful scholarship and characteristic literary felicity, Apostolos Athanassakis, translator of The Homeric Hymns, here presents the surviving works of another of ancient Greece's most familiar poets.

Hesiod's two major works, Theogony and Works and Days, compose most of the volume, along with accompanying introduction and detailed notes. The Theogonay traces the origins and genealogy of the Greek gods and recounts the events surrounding the crowning of Zeus as their king. Works and Days is a didactic poem offering advice on living a life of honest work. Included also is a rare translation of the Shield, a work generally attributed to Hesiod but porbably not written by him.
