The title Works and Days suggests a laboring routine lived over and over every day. Ancient Greek poet Hesiod published this farmer's almanac around 700 BC as an instruction in the agricultural arts. On a deeper level, Hesiod binds together two mythological etiologies as a symbol for the hardship that defines the human condition: the story of Prometheus and Pandora and Myth of Five Ages.
What members say
Very hard to understand and comprehend narrator.
I did everything to get a good audio tone to no avail. So I had to read the book.
Would return this if I could ... or can I?
