Like his contemporary, Homer, Hesiod artfully relates the struggles and triumphs of the gods as he offers moral and practical advice for earthbound mortals.A poetic treatise on agriculture and farming, Works and Days also presents instructions for daily life and social behavior.

The Shield of Heracles holds further adventure, recounting one of the legendary heros epic battles.This scrupulously accurate and readable translation is essential for students of Greek mythology and literature.
