Hesiod theogony and works and days pdf
Hesiod WORKS AND DAYS : Full text, in English - 1After more than a third of a cen- tury of intense use, my battered copy needed to be re- placed-and not only my copy: even when it was first pub- hshed in , Evelyn-White's edition was, though useful, rather idiosyncratic, and the extraordinary progress that scholarship on Hesiod has made since then has finally made it altogether outdated. The Homeric parts of that edition have now been replaced by two volumes edited by Martin West, Homeric Hymns. Homeric Apocrypha. Lives of Homer and Greek Epic Fragments from the Seventh to the Fifth Centuries Be; the present volumes are intended to make the rest of the material contained in Evelyn- White's edition, Hesiod and the poetry attributed to him, accessible to a new generation of readers. Over the past decade I have taught a number of semi- nars and lecture courses on Hesiod to helpfully thoughtful and critical students at Heidelberg University, the Scuola N ormale Superiore di Pisa, and the University of Chicago: my thanks to all of them for sharpening my understanding of this fascinating poet. Various friends and colleagues read the introduction, text, and translation of this edition and contributed nu- merous corrections and improvements of all sorts to them.
