    Title: WORKS AND DAYS
    Author: HESIOD
    Format: PAPER COVER
    Publishing status: ACTIVE TITLE

    A new verse translation of one of the foundational ancient Greek works by the award-winning poet Alicia Stallings.

    The ancient Greeks revered Hesiod, believing he had beaten Homer in a singing contest and that after his dead body was thrown to sea, it was brought back by dolphins. His Works and Days is one of the most important early works of Greek poetry. Ostensibly written by the poet to chide his lazy brother, it recounts the story of Pandora's box and humanity's decline since the Golden Age, and can be read as a celebration of rural life and a hymn to work.
