About the Author

Stanley Lombardo is Professor of Classics, University of Kansas.


This is by far the best rendering of Hesiod's poems in print. The translation is fully accurate but so readable one doesn't want to stop; it exactly captures Hesiod's rustic wisdom, his humour and his cautious pessimism. . . . Clear brief notes and a glossary make this a must for introductory courses: students will love it. --Richard Janko, University College, London
Spare, muscular, pithy, no otiose rhetoric. --Peter Green, University of Texas at Austin
These are both fine translations, each one suited to the character of the respective work. --Charles Segal, Harvard University
