Product Overview

This volume, which completes the new Loeb Classical Library edition of Hesiod, contains "The Shield" and extant fragments of other poems, including the "Catalogue of Women," that were attributed to Hesiod in antiquity. None of these is now thought to be by Hesiod himself, but all have considerable literary and historical interest. The "Catalogue of Women" is a systematic presentation in five books of a large number of Greek legendary heroes and episodes, organized according to the genealogy of the heroes'' mortal mothers. "The Shield" provides a Hesiodic counterpoint to the shield of Achilles in the Iliad, with Heracles as the protagonist. The volume concludes with a comprehensive index to the complete edition.
