    Works and Days Summary and Study Guide. Thanks for exploring this SuperSummary Study Guide of “Works and Days” by Hesiod. A modern alternative to SparkNotes and CliffsNotes, SuperSummary offers high-quality study guides that feature detailed chapter summaries and analysis of major themes, characters, quotes, and essay topics. Greek poet Hesiod took many lines of thought and knowledge - myth, fable, personal experience, practical understanding - and wove them into one great whole. He did as much with the origins of the Greek gods in the Theogony, and then did the same in creating his manual of moral and practical advice, Works and Days.

      Very little is known about Hesiod and it cannot definitely be proved that the same man wrote both the Theogony and Works and probably lived in the eighth century BC (contemporary with Homer) in Boeotia on the Greek mainland. Theognis lived and wrote chiefly in the sixth century BC. He came from Megara, probably the one on the Greek mainland, and Brand: Penguin Publishing Group.   The eighth century, when Hesiod lived, was the time of the great Greek awakening after the period of relative darkness ushered in by the fall of the old Mycenaean kingdoms around B.C. Hesiod thus lived at the beginning of the Greek classical period, and his poems influenced not only that age but also Western culture in our : University of Oklahoma Press.

The “Theogony” is essentially a large-scale synthesis of a vast variety of local Greek traditions concerning the gods and the universe, organized as a narrative that tells about the creation of the world out of Chaos and about the gods that shaped the cosmos.
