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.

'This is a very welcome publication, an authoritative translation of a major greek author at a reasonable price. Essential reading for classicists'
J. G. Hourie, Dept. of Classics, University of Edinburgh
' Readers who have no previous knowledge of Hesoid will find this an extremely accessible book, written in such a way that the non-specialist will be able to read, follow and enjoy these works. This is in part due to Professor West's excellent translations and partly due to his real and profound interest in his subject, which is further reflectd by a most informative and useful introduction.'

'So much better than the corresponding Penguin translation of Hesiod. The introduction is splendid.'
P. Walcot, University College, Cardiff.
'The edition is admirably produced, mercifully free from misprints ... an edition with a stimulating Introduction, a very readable translation'
'West ... has now produced fine translations of these poems into fresh, lively and eminently readable English. It must quickly establish itself as the translation for English-speaking readers.'
