Reviews

This is by far the best rendering of Hesiod's poems in print. The translation is fully accurate but so readable one doesn't want to stop; it exactly captures Hesiod's rustic wisdom, his humour and his cautious pessimism. . . . Clear brief notes and a glossary make this a must for introductory courses: students will love it. --Richard Janko, University College, London
Spare, muscular, pithy, no otiose rhetoric. --Peter Green, University of Texas at Austin
These are both fine translations, each one suited to the character of the respective work. --Charles Segal, Harvard University
