Greek poet Hesiod took many lines of thought and knowledge - myth, fable, personal experience, practical understanding - and wove them into one great whole. He did as much with the origins of the Greek gods in the Theogony, and then did the same in creating his manual of moral and practical advice, Works and Days.

"Works and Days" was the purpose, or rather, reading the agricultural material from the time of Hesiod. This Stephanie Nelson translation is like getting a Ferrari for the price of a used Ford. More specifically,
-- the book includes Theogony as well as Works and Days
-- it comes with erudite, enriching essays on both books
-- the translation is poetry, not prose, but poetry true to the original texts we have
-- the translations include witty, wise, informative footnotes on every page, like a conversation with the translator
-- through this, I've met for the first time a feisty, fascinating man who gets lost in lesser translations. Who could resist, after the invocation to the Muses who dwell on Pieria in fine style the fine blunt, "For mine, I would speak truth to Perses."
(Perses his brother, that fool, to whom Hesiod gives an earful.
The Theogony covers the history of the gods as Hesiod knew or embellished it, which even a thousand years later was the generally accepted version, one that imspired scores of writers then and now. The Woks and Days is sheer delight, including in almost Lucretian style (Lucretius came long after Hesiod) beliefs and opinions about much concerning life and making a living, including some keen but apprehensive words on sailing the wine-dark sea.
A lovely gift from Nelson and essayist Caldwell---and the deities which almost miraculously have preserved Homer and Hesiod for our times and beyond. If you can afford only one translation of Hesiod, this is it!
