“This is by far the best rendering of Hesiod’s poems in print. The translation is fully accurate but so readable one doesn’t want to stop; it exactly captures Hesiod’s rustic wisdom, his humour and his cautious pessimism. . . . Clear brief notes and a glossary make this a must for introductory courses: students will love it.”
     —Richard Janko, University College, London


"Spare, muscular, pithy, no otiose rhetoric.”
     —Peter Green, University of Texas at Austin


“These are both fine translations, each one suited to the character of the respective work.”
     —Charles Segal, Harvard University


“Robert Lamberton’s Introduction is an excellent, concise exposition of current scholarly debate: his notes are informative and helpful. . . . Those who want a translation that captures something of the spirit of an ancient Greek poetic voice and its cultural milieu and transmits it in an appealing, lively, and accessible style will now turn to Lombardo.”
     —M. A. Katz, Wesleyan University, in CHOICE
