PressestimmenReview of the hardback: 'The writing is in general very accessible ... and the argument ... is always set out clearly.' JACT Review of the hardback: '... scholarly, lucid, serious.' Times Literary Supplement Review of the hardback: '... this remains a thoughtful book which repays careful study and will become a cornerstone of future Hesiodic scholarship.' Bryn Mawr Classical Review 'Clay's book is accessible and unpretentious, thoughtfully structured and full of insight. It will convince you that there is much to admire in Hesiod's works, and perhaps much to complement our student's study of Homer.' The London Association of Classical Teachers Newsletter Review of the hardback: 'This is a thought-provoking book, which deserves to be widely read.' Journal of Hellenic Studies Review of the hardback: 'Jenny Strauss Clay's excellent new book on Hesiod has the strength characteristic of all her work: she takes her text seriously ... richly rewarding and filled with intriguing and thought-provoking insights. Clay has provided us with an important new perspective on the Hesiodic corpus.' Hermathena Review of the hardback: '... this book constitutes an estimable and valuable contribution to scholarly debate on Hesiod, which leads me to strongly recommend it. It is informative, accurate, challenging and, so to speak, a 'fertilizer' both for new reflections on the several topics discussed and for promoting increased interest in trying to better understand a poet traditionally neglected and obscured by comparison with Homer. And both these results are, in my opinion, the most precious values an essay can have.' Rosanna Lauriola, University of Texas, San Antonio
