Publisher Description

This volume contains practically all that remains of the post-Homeric and pre-academic epic poetry, including: Works and Days, and Theogony both attributed to Hesiod; Homeric Hymns and Epigrams of Homer both attributed to Homer; plus various fragments such as Fragments of the Epic Cycle. According to Wikipedia: "Homer is a legendary ancient Greek epic poet, traditionally said to be the author of the epic poems the Iliad and the Odyssey. The ancient Greeks generally believed that Homer was a historical individual, but modern scholars are skeptical: no reliable biographical information has been handed down from classical antiquity, and the poems themselves manifestly represent the culmination of many centuries of oral story-telling and a well-developed "formulaic" system of poetic composition." According to Wikipedia: "Hesiod was a Greek oral poet, who may have lived around 700 BCE or earlier. Hesiod and Homer are generally considered the earliest Greek poets whose work has survived since at least Herodotus' time (Histories, 2.53), and they are often paired... Hesiod's writings serve as a major source on Greek mythology, farming techniques, archaic Greek astronomy and ancient time-keeping."
