Works and Days and Theogony, Paperback Book
3.5 out of 5 (1 rating)


"Robert Lamberton's Introduction is an excellent, concise exposition of current scholarly debate: his notes are informative and helpful...Those who want a translation that captures something of the spirit of an ancient Greek poetic voice and its cultural milieu and transmits it in an appealing, lively, and accessible style will now turn to Lombardo." --M.

Review by

While this book gives an account of the Greek gods, it all seemed rather quickly done. I'd prefer if the end-notes were footnotes, as it would make it easier to understand certain parts (especially since the notes are not numbered). Interesting for the fact that it is one of the earliest writings on the gods, but perhaps not the best edition to read. The author actually lists other versions/translations as recommended reading.
