Hesiod Theogony and Works and Days | Mycenae | Mycenaean GreeceAt its center, the Works and Days is a farmer's almanac in which Hesiod instructs his brother Perses in the agricultural arts. Scholars have seen this work against a background of agrarian crisis in mainland Greece, which inspired a wave of colonial expeditions in search of new land. In the poem Hesiod also offers his brother extensive moralizing advice on how he should live his life. The Works and Days is perhaps best known for its two mythological aetiologies for the toil and pain that define the human condition : the story of Prometheus and Pandora , and the so-called Myth of Five Ages. In the Works and Days , Hesiod describes himself as the heir of a farm bequeathed to him and his brother Perses. However, Perses apparently squandered his wealth and came back for what is owned by Hesiod.

For this reason almost everything said in the following survey of Greek prehistory is probable at best; the present state of our knowledge does not allow hesod in most matters, and in some of the most important does not even guarantee probability.

After more than a third of a cen- tury of intense use, my battered copy needed to be re- placed-and not only my copy: even when it was first pub- hshed in , Evelyn-White's edition was, though useful, rather idiosyncratic, and the extraordinary progress that scholarship on Hesiod has made since then has finally made it altogether outdated. The Homeric parts of that edition have now been replaced by two volumes edited by Martin West, Homeric Hymns. Homeric Apocrypha. Lives of Homer and Greek Epic Fragments from the Seventh to the Fifth Centuries Be; the present volumes are intended to make the rest of the material contained in Evelyn- White's edition, Hesiod and the poetry attributed to him, accessible to a new generation of readers. Over the past decade I have taught a number of semi- nars and lecture courses on Hesiod to helpfully thoughtful and critical students at Heidelberg University, the Scuola N ormale Superiore di Pisa, and the University of Chicago: my thanks to all of them for sharpening my understanding of this fascinating poet. Various friends and colleagues read the introduction, text, and translation of this edition and contributed nu- merous corrections and improvements of all sorts to them.
