A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

Hesiod (Hesiodus), an epic poet apparently of the eighth century BC, was born in Asia Minor but moved to Boeotia in central Greece. He was regarded by later Greeks as a contemporary of Homer.

Three works survive under Hesiod's name: (1) "Works and Days," addressed to his brother. In it he gives us the allegories of the two Strifes, and the myth of Pandora; stresses that every man must work; describes the accepted Five Ages of the world; delivers moral advice; surveys in splendid style a year's work on a farm; gives precepts on navigation; and propounds lucky and unlucky days. (2) "Theogony," a religious work about the rise of the gods and the universe from Chaos to the triumph of Zeus, and about the progeny of Zeus and of goddesses in union with mortal men. (3) "The Shield" (not by Hesiod), an extract from a "Catalogue of Women," the subject being Alcmena and her son Heracles and his contest with Cycnus, with a description of Heracles' shield. All three works are of great literary interest.

About the Author:

Homer is a legendary ancient Greek epic poet, traditionally said to be the creator of the epic poems the "Iliad" and the "Odyssey". Homer's works form the groundwork of the Western Canon and are universally praised for their genius. Their formative influence in shaping many key aspects of Greek culture was recognized by the Greeks themselves, who considered him as their instructor.

David W. Tandy is Associate Professor of Classics at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, and coeditor of "From Political Economy to Anthropology: Situating Economic Life in Past Societies" (1994). Walter C. Neale is Professor Emeritus of Economics at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, and author of "Developing Rural India: Policies, Politics, and Progress" (1990).
