Read in June, 2010

The Works and Days and Theogony are two very different works. The first is a rustic observation on farmers' techniques, with Hesiod's angry complaints at mistreatment by his own brother, and with the oppressed man's hope for eventual divine justice. Theogony by contrast is entirely supernatural and mythological.
