9780672602023: Theogony: [and] Works and days (Penguin classics)

The Theogony and Works and Days are written by Hesiod, who was one of the earliest Greek poets. The Theogony is largely a historical geneaology of gods which starts at the beginning of the world. Works and Days includes both partical and moral advice on husbandry and is widely known as one of the earliest sources for many important myths including that of Pandora and Prometheus. This is an excellent publication for those who study or are interested in greek mythology and also those who are fans or collectors of the writings of Hesiod.
