Since at least Herodotus 's time ( Histories , 2.53), Hesiod and Homer have generally been considered the earliest Greek poets whose work has survived, and they are often paired. Scholars disagree about who lived first, and the fourth-century BC sophist Alcidamas Mouseion even brought them together in an imagined poetic agon, the Contest of Homer and Hesiod Aristarchus first argued for Homer's priority, a claim that was generally accepted by later antiquity. Hesiod's writings serve as a major source on Greek mythology farming techniques, early economic thought (he is sometimes identified as the first economist , archaic Greek astronomy and ancient time -keeping.

[1] Muses of Pieria who give glory through song, come hither, tell of Zeus your father and chant his praise. Through him mortal men are famed or unfamed, sung or unsung alike, as great Zeus wills. For easily he makes strong, and easily he brings the strong man low; easily he humbles the proud and raises the obscure, and easily he straightens the crooked and blasts the proud, Zeus who thunders aloft and has his dwelling most high. Attend thou with eye and ear, and make judgements straight with righteousness. And I, Perses, would tell of true things.

[ The Theogony in Greek Hesiod lived in the 8th century BCE, probably about the same time or shortly after Homer. He refers to himself as a farmer in Boeotia, a region of central Greece, but other than that we know little. His poetry codified the chronology and genealogy of the Greek myths. Works and Days and the Theogony are the only two complete works we have of Hesiod, other than the first few lines of a poem called the Shield of Heracles In Works and Days Hesiod divided time into five ages:the Golden age, ruled by Cronos, when people lived extremely long lives 'without sorrow of heart'; the Silver age, ruled by Zeus; the Bronze age, an epoch of war; the Heroic age, the time of the Trojan war; and lastly the Iron age, the corrupt present. This is similar to Hindu and Buddhist concepts of the Kali Yuga. The idea of a Golden Age has likewise had a profound impact on western thought. Works and Days also discusses pagan ethics, extols hard work, and lists lucky and unlucky days of the month for various activities.

Hesiod
Hesiod is the Greek poet who shares the distinction of one of the two oldest sources of Greek literature. Hesiod is thought to have lived in the eighth century BCE and to have composed classic poems such as Theogony and Works and Days ; he is also, rightly or wrongly, credited with a variety of other poems such as the Shield of Herakles , the Astronomy and Eoiae Kyme (Cyme) in Aeolis and that his father later moved to a wretched village named Askra (Ascra) near Mount Helikon (Helicon). The Muse of Mount Helikon inspired Hesiod and he made his only sea journey to the city of Khalkis Like Homer Iliad and The Odyssey clothbound and 0472081616 paper bound) or the Loeb Classical Library volume 57 (ISBN

Homer (900 B.C. - 800 B.C.)
Very little is known about Homer, including his birth and death dates. However, it is generally accepted that he lived during the period 900-800 B.C. His birthplace is in question – some say Smyrna, others say Ionia. Too, in question, is whether or not he actually wrote the two major works that are traditionally ascribed to his name: The Iliad and The Odyssey The Iliad and The Odyssey are both epics: long, narrative poems that detail the deeds of a hero. The Iliad , based on oral traditions, is written about the Trojan War, specifically focusing on two soldiers: Akhilleus, representing the Greeks, and Hector, the hero of the Trojans. The Odyssey tells the story of Odysseus, King of Ithaka, who, while on his way home from the Trojan War, offends the sea god, Poseidon, and is doomed to another ten years of wandering before being able to return to his home and family. The Homeric Hymns , a series of short poems that honor the Greek gods, is also attributed to Homer.

    Importance of Hesiod:
    Hesiod and Homer are the first great writers of Greek literature. Homer and Hesiod are also central to the history of ancient Greece because they are reputed to have given the Greeks their gods, at least according to Herodotus . Hesiod is also credited with creating didactic (instructive and moralizing) poetry.
    Home of Hesiod:
    Hesiod probably lived around 700 B.C., shortly after Homer, in a Boeotian village called Ascra. This is one of the few details of his life that Hesiod reveals in his writing.
    Career of Hesiod:
    Hesiod worked as a shepherd in the mountains, as a youth, and then, as a small peasant on a hard land when his father died. While tending his flock on Mt. Helicon

    The Theogony of Hesiod
    translated by Hugh G. Evelyn-White
    (ll. 26-28) `Shepherds of the wilderness, wretched things of shame, mere bellies, we know how to speak many false things as though they were true; but we know, when we will, to utter true things.' (ll. 29-35) So said the ready-voiced daughters of great Zeus, and they plucked and gave me a rod, a shoot of sturdy laurel, a marvellous thing, and breathed into me a divine voice to celebrate things that shall be and things there were aforetime; and they bade me sing of the race of the blessed gods that are eternally, but ever to sing of themselves both first and last. But why all this about oak or stone? (2) (ll. 104-115) Hail, children of Zeus! Grant lovely song and celebrate the holy race of the deathless gods who are for ever, those that were born of Earth and starry Heaven and gloomy Night and them that briny Sea did rear. Tell how at the first gods and earth came to be, and rivers, and the boundless sea with its raging swell, and the gleaming stars, and the wide heaven above, and the gods who were born of them, givers of good things, and how they divided their wealth, and how they shared their honours amongst them, and also how at the first they took many-folded Olympus. These things declare to me from the beginning, ye Muses who dwell in the house of Olympus, and tell me which of them first came to be. (ll. 139-146) And again, she bare the Cyclopes, overbearing in spirit, Brontes, and Steropes and stubborn-hearted Arges (6), who gave Zeus the thunder and made the thunderbolt: in all else they were like the gods, but one eye only was set in the midst of their fore-heads. And they were surnamed Cyclopes (Orb-eyed) because one orbed eye was set in their foreheads. Strength and might and craft were in their works.

    ll. 1-25 ) From the Heliconian Muses let us begin to sing , who hold the great and holy mount of Helicon, and dance on soft feet about the deep-blue spring and the altar of the almighty son of Cronos , and, when they have washed their tender bodies in Permessus or in the Horse's Spring or Olmeius, make their fair, lovely dances upon highest Helicon and move with vigorous feet. Thence they arise and go abroad by night , veiled in thick mist, and utter their song with lovely voice , praising Zeus the aegis-holder and queenly Hera of Argos who walks on golden sandals and the daughter of Zeus the aegis-holder bright-eyed Athene, and Phoebus Apollo , and Artemis who delights in arrows , and Poseidon the earth-holder who shakes the earth, and reverend Themis and quick-glancing (coquettishness) Aphrodite , and Hebe with the crown of gold, and fair Dione, Leto, Iapetus, and Cronos the crafty counsellor Eos and great Helius and bright Selene , Earth too, and great Oceanus, and dark Night, and the holy race of all the other deathless ones that are for ever. -Helius II.

    Hesiod (name service)
    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Jump to: navigation search In computing , the Hesiod name service originated in Project Athena (1983 - 1991). It uses DNS functionality to provide access to databases of information that change infrequently. In Unix environments it often serves to distribute information kept in the /etc/passwd /etc/group , and /etc/printcap files, among others. Frequently an LDAP server is used to distribute the same kind of information that Hesiod does. However, because Hesiod can leverage existing DNS servers, deploying it to a network is fairly easy. In a Unix-like system users usually have a line in the /etc/passwd file like: foo:x:100:10:Foo Bar:/home/foo:/bin/sh This line tells the machine what your user id is, what group you belong to, your full name, where your home directory is, and what shell you use. This system works fine for a small number of users on a small number of machines. But when more users start using more machines having this information managed in one location becomes critical. This is where hesiod enters. Instead of having this information stored on every machine, Hesiod stores it in records on your DNS server. Then each client can query the DNS server for this information instead of looking for it locally. In

    Hesiod for Kids - an Archaic Greek writer
    Hesiod
    HOMER HESIOD ARCHILOCHUS SAPPHO ... DEMOSTHENES M. L. West once claimed that "Greece is part of Asia; Greek literature is a Near Eastern literature" (Theogony, p. 31). This is more true of some genres (types) of Greek literature than it is of others, and naturally it is more true of the older Greek literature than it is of the later stuff.
    Hesiod is one of the first Greek writers whose work has survived. He wrote probably around 700 BC , during the Greek Archaic period. It is not clear whether he wrote before or after Homer . Two big pieces of writing survive: one is called the Theogony and the other is called the Works and Days.
    We know very little about Hesiod other than what you can see in these two works. In the Theogony, Hesiod describes the beginning of the world and the birth of the gods . In the Works and Days, he describes the life of a farmer (a pretty wealthy farmer) in Greece at this time.
