    Among the finest poets of ancient Greece was Hesiod, a contemporary of Homer, who lived in the eighth century B.C. It is still a matter of dispute whether Homer or Hesiod was the earlier poet, and sometimes whether they were one and the same person! At any rate, Hesiod's incredible poetry serves as a major source for our understanding of Greek mythology, farming practices, time keeping and astronomy. In and of itself, the "Works and Days" is unparalleled in its richness and beauty, easily rivaling Homer.

    Am Berg Helikon hauchen die Musen Hesiod ihre Stimmen ein und so wird er zum Sänger der Theogonie geweiht. Er schildert das Entstehen der Welt und der einzelnen Göttergenerationen, er erzählt von Prometheus und Pandora, von Giganten und Nymphen und von Zeus' Machtergreifung am Olymp. Nach seiner vielgelobten Übertragung der "Ilias" präsentiert Raoul Schrott nun die 2.700 Jahre alte Quelle griechischer Literatur erfrischend modern und zugänglich.
