Book Synopsis

Contained in this volume are the three best-known works of the ancient Greek poet Hesiod. Hesiod's "The Theogony" concerns the origins of the world and of the gods and forms a foundation for all Greek mythology. In "Works and Days", Hesiod argues that labor is a fundamental condition of human existence and to those who are willing to work success will most surely be achieved. Additionally in this volume is "The Shield of Heracles" in which is described the conflict between Heracles and Cycnus while passing near Itonus. Presented here is the Hugh G. Evelyn-White translation of three important works that are generally attributed to Hesiod.
