Composed around the same time as Homer, Hesiod’s works helped establish Greek religious customs throughout antiquity, providing a major source on mythology and a fascinating window into the life of the ordinary man 700 years before the birth of Christ. The Ancient Classics series provides eReaders with the wisdom of the Classical world, with both English translations and the original Greek texts. This comprehensive eBook presents the complete works of Hesiod, with beautiful illustrations, informative introductions and the usual Delphi bonus material. (Version 1)
