Epic poems by one who has been called the first Greek philosopher and theologian
“Richmond Lattimore is a fine translator of poetry because he has a poetic voice of his own, authentic and unmistakable and yet capable of a remarkable range of modulation… Hesiod is earth-bound and dun-colored, indeed part of his purpose is to discredit the brilliance and the ideals of heroism glorified in the Homeric tradition. But Hesiod too is poetry… and Lattimore’s is the only version that makes the English reader aware that it is.”
– New York Times Book Review
