Hesiod - Hesiod JOHNS HOPKINS UNIVERSITY PRESS

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Hesiod belongs to the transitional period in Greek civilization between the oral tradition and the introduction of a written alphabet. His two major surviving works, the Theogony and the Works and Days, address the divine and the mundane, respectively. The Theogony traces the origins of the Greek gods and recounts the events surrounding the crowning of Zeus as their king. A manual of moral instruction in verse, the Works and Days was addressed to farmers and peasants. Introducing his celebrated translations of these two poems and of the Shield, a very ancient poem of disputed authorship, Apostolos Athanassakis positions Hesiod simultaneously as a philosopher-poet, a bard with deep roots in the culture of his native Boeotia, and the heir to a long tradition of Hellenic poetry. For this eagerly anticipated revised edition, Athanassakis has provided an expanded introduction on Hesiod and his work, subtly amended his faithful translations, significantly augmented the notes and index, and updated the bibliography. Already a classic, Hesiod: Theogony, Works and Days, Shield is now more valuable than ever for students of Greek mythology and literature.

Theogony and Works and Days Oxford University Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Hesiod, who lived in Boetia in the late eighth century BC, is one of the oldest known, and possibly the oldest of Greek poets. His Theogony contains a systematic genealogy of the gods from the beginning of the world and an account of the struggles of the Titans. In contrast, Works and Days is a compendium of moral and practical advice on husbandry, and throws unique and fascinating light on archaic Greek society. As well as offering the earliest known sources for the myths of Pandora, Prometheus and the Golden Age, Hesiod's poetry provides a valuable account of the ethics and superstitions of the society in which he lived. Unlike Homer, Hesiod writes about himself and his family, and he stands out as the first personality in European literature. This new translation, by a leading expert on the Hesiodic poems combines accuracy with readability. It is accompanied by an introduction and explanatory notes. ABOUT THE SERIES: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made available the widest range of literature from around the globe. Each affordable volume reflects Oxford's commitment to scholarship, providing the most accurate text plus a wealth of other valuable features, including expert introductions by leading authorities, helpful notes to clarify the text, up-to-date bibliographies for further study, and much more.

Hesiod - Hesiod HARVARD UNIVERSITY PRESS

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Hesiod describes himself as a Boeotian shepherd who heard the Muses call upon him to sing about the gods. His exact dates are unknown, but he has often been considered a younger contemporary of Homer. This volume of the new "Loeb Classical Library" edition offers a general introduction, a fluid translation facing an improved Greek text of Hesiod's two extant poems, and a generous selection of testimonia from a wide variety of ancient sources regarding Hesiod's life, works, and reception. In "Theogony", Hesiod charts the history of the divine world, narrating the origin of the universe and the rise of the gods, from first beginnings to the triumph of Zeus, and reporting on the progeny of Zeus and of goddesses in union with mortal men. In "Works and Days", Hesiod shifts his attention to the world of men, delivering moral precepts and practical advice regarding agriculture, navigation, and many other matters; along the way he gives us the myths of Pandora and of the Golden, Silver, and other Races of Men.

Homeric Hymns LOEB

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Performances of Greek epics customarily began with a hymn to a god or goddess - as Hesiod's "Theogony" and "Works and Days" do. A collection of 33 such poems has come down to us from antiquity under the title "Hymns of Homer". This volume contains, in addition to the hymns, fragments of five comic poems that were connected with Homer's name in or just after the Classical period (but are not today believed to be by the author of the "Iliad" or the "Odyssey"). Here too is a collection of ancient accounts of the poet's life. The hymns range widely in length: two are over 500 lines long; several run only a half-dozen lines. Among the longest are the hymn To Demeter, which tells the foundational story of the Eleusinian Mysters, and To Hermes, distinctive in being amusing. The comic poems gathered as Homeric apocrypha include "Margites", the "Battle of Frogs and Mice" and a fragment of a perhaps earlier poem of the same type called "Battle of the Weasel and the Mice". The edition of Lives of Homer contains "The Contest of Homer and Hesiod" and nine other biographical accounts.

To Mega Biblion American Society of Papyrologists

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

A systematic and chronological investigation into the nature and development of end-titles in papyrus rolls and codices of hexameter poetry from the 3rd century BC to the 6th century AD. The bulk of the evidence for presentation of hexametric verse derives from Homeric papyri (51 papyrus copies), although Hesiod's Theogony, Works & Days , and Shield (two), and Oppian's Halieutica likewise supply data (one). For comparative purposes the author also provides a sampling of end-titles in non-epic genres. The discussion of individual papyri and summation of the results are rich and informative. Includes bibliographical references, charts with comparative statistics, and pertinent indices.
