Hesiod: Theogony, Works and Days, Shield

#ad
Johns Hopkins University Press #ad - The theogony traces the origins of the Greek gods and recounts the events surrounding the crowning of Zeus as their king. Hesiod belongs to the transitional period in Greek civilization between the oral tradition and the introduction of a written alphabet. His two major surviving works, the Theogony and the Works and Days, address the divine and the mundane, respectively.

For this eagerly anticipated revised edition, Athanassakis has provided an expanded introduction on Hesiod and his work, significantly augmented the notes and index, subtly amended his faithful translations, and updated the bibliography. Already a classic, hesiod: theogony, Works and Days, Shield is now more valuable than ever for students of Greek mythology and literature.

Hesiod: Theogony, Works and Days, Shield #ad - A manual of moral instruction in verse, the Works and Days was addressed to farmers and peasants. Introducing his celebrated translations of these two poems and of the Shield, Apostolos Athanassakis positions Hesiod simultaneously as a philosopher-poet, a bard with deep roots in the culture of his native Boeotia, a very ancient poem of disputed authorship, and the heir to a long tradition of Hellenic poetry.
