9781599868561: Theogony and Works and Days

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.

Walter C. Neale is Professor Emeritus of Economics at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, and author of "Developing Rural India: Policies, Politics, and Progress (1990).

Review:

"Wonderfully sensitive to the musicality and order of Hesiod’s Theogony and Works and Days, Kimberly Johnson’s deft translation restores attention to the complex poetic dimensions of these texts. With lyrical precision, Johnson illuminates the vast range of form and figure Hesiod employs to evoke the genealogy of gods and the labor of quotidian agricultural life. At the same time, this translation vividly captures the humor, restlessness, and forceful assertion that distinguishes Hesiod’s oeuvre. Johnson’s translation should be an essential text not only for readers of classical poetry, but for those interested in the long history of environmental literature." —Margaret Ronda, author of Personification
