Summary

This translation contains an introduction, commentary and interpretive essay and well as numerous notes and annotations to provide the background and context of the epic and the mythological context in which it is placed. Hesiod's straightforward account of family conflict among the gods is the best and earliest evidence of what the ancient Greeks believed about the beginning of the world. Includes Hesiod's Works and Days, lines 1-201, and the Library of Apollodorus.
