General Description

Hesiod’s Theogony is the Greek creation myth. This short chronology tells the twisted history of the Greek gods, how they came to be and how they came to power. The stories in Theogony set the stage for students to study other classic Greek works like the Iliad and Odyssey and prepare students to test Greek and Roman myths against the truth of the Bible. This edition also includes Works and Days, akin to a farmer's almanac from the seventh century B.C.
