The Homeric Hymns and Homerica: English Text

Overview

This two-volume collection contains works that represent practically all that remains of the post-Homeric and pre-academic epic poetry. These extended narrative poems were typically written on topics and events significant to the culture of the ancient Greeks, although Hesiod was exemplified for his epyllion styled poetry which concentrated on Greek mythology. Both the original Greek versions and English translations of works attributed to Hesiod, Homer and other authors with similar writing styles are included in this collection. This volume contains the English translation of Hesiod, the Homeric Hymns and Homerica.
