    ePUB Θεογονία MOBI · ↠ 12th century.co Θεογονία pdf, Θεογονία PDF/EPUBOne cannot compare Hesiod’s ‘Theogony’ with Homer’s ‘Illiad’ or Ovid’s ‘Metamorphoses’ for that matter Hesiod’s poem does not have the wit and irony of Ovid’s work nor the intriguing plot of an ‘Illiad’ or an ‘Odysseus’ It describes how the Greek universe with its gods came into existence and how Zeus gained sovereignty over the world as “father of gods and men” I would not choose this as a bedside reading unless you have difficulties with falling asleep This is sometimes a list than a poem telling who copulates with whom and who is the offspring from these encounters It has the same

    ePUB Θεογονία MOBI · ↠ 12th century.co Θεογονία pdf, Θεογονία PDF/EPUBFor a while I'd mistakenly thought Ovid's Metamorphoses was simply a Roman rip off of this book and it turned out I wasn't uite correct They both contain significant stories of the Greco Roman Gods but The Theogony is less detailed has a very different tone and in my personal opinion is rather shite in comparison Perhaps reading this after I already started Ovid was a mistake since I suspect I may have been a little kinder to it otherwise but alas I am a fool for not keeping to chronology I listened to Evelyn Butler's prose version because dealing with poetry for too long tends to bring me out in hivesContentFar shorter than Ovid sticking mostly to the origins of the Gods and barely covers the meaty toying with mortals stories that would later enthrall the playwrites As a discussion of the creation myth its alright if a little bloodlessToneNot only is Hesiod a sycophant with endless flattery for the capricious an

    ePUB Θεογονία MOBI · ↠ 12th century.co Θεογονία pdf, Θεογονία PDF/EPUBTheogony traces the creation of the cosmos and the genealogy of the Greek gods There’s a cornucopia of nasty stuff here patricide incest blatant misogyny swallowing up one's own progeny and whatnot Typical Greek mythology stuff I was expecting a fascinating encounter but it turned out be dry and monotonous and failed to grab my attention Being an oratory work I guess we do miss its purported impact when read in print I would have been delighted if there was an Ian Mckellen rendering; his Odyssey was delightful
