Críticas:

"Good and readable. We can use it in our Myth and Greek courses."--David H.J. Larmour, Texas Tech Univ "This is a good, serviceable translation by the foremost authority of Hesiod....very clear and accessible version....concise introduction and useful notes...deserves to become a text of preference in courses in translation."--Robert L. Fowler, Classical World "The introduction blends charm, substance, and clarity for new readers of Hesiod. West makes him unintimidating, understandable, and above all human."--Carole Weaver, Iona College West is the finest Hesiod scholar of our time, if not of all time, and accordingly his English prose version is an altogether worthy by-product of his long, fruitful studies His introduction is masterly; and the endnotes, though brief, tell enough for most readers' information or curiosity."--Religious Studies Review "Very reasonably priced, yet with pleasing type-setting, a helpful introduction, and endnotes. Turning the endnotes into footnotes would have been even better."--Christopher Magri, Northwestern State University "Good, clear translation, useful notes."--Dr. Karl M.

Reseña del editor:

Hesiod, who lived in Boetia in the late eighth century BC, is one of the oldest known, and possibly the oldest of Greek poets. His Theogony contains a systematic genealogy of the gods from the beginning of the world and an account of the struggles of the Titans. In contrast, Works and Days is a compendium of moral and practical advice on husbandry, and throws unique and fascinating light on archaic Greek society. As well as offering the earliest known sources for the myths of Pandora, Prometheus and the Golden Age, Hesiod's poetry provides a valuable account of the ethics and superstitions of the society in which he lived. Unlike Homer, Hesiod writes about himself and his family, and he stands out as the first personality in European literature. This new translation, by a leading expert on the Hesiodic poems combines accuracy with readability. It is accompanied by an introduction and explanatory notes.
