Product Description


Review of the hardback: '… these papers represent a welcome return to a tantalizing assortment of fragments … This collection is a welcome sign, signalling … attention to a complicated and tantalizing set of fragments. … no student of the Catalogue of Women will come away from this book without a different approach to try out for him or herself, without repeatedly thinking while reading, 'I don't quite remember that fragment …' and wanting to look at the poem anew.' Bryn Mawr Classical Review

Review of the hardback: '… invaluable … The collection of essays offers numerous intelligent ways of reading a fragmentary and influential poem …' Journal of Hellenic Studies

Book Description

The Catalogue of Women, ascribed to Hesiod, maps the Greek world and its heroic myths through the mortal women who bore children to the gods. In this collection leading scholars offer an exploration of the meaning, significance, and reception of this fascinating and highly influential poem.

Format: Hardcover
This is the product of a conference on the Hesiodic Catalogue of Women held in Cambridge in June 2003. The papers, here collected and diligently edited by the masterly hand of Richard Hunter, Regius Professor of Greek in Cambridge, represent the peak of modern research on this fragmentary yet tantalising work of Hesiod (the father of 'didactic' epic and one of the main inspirators of Hellenistic poetry). Names include: Richard Hunter, Simon Goldhill, Richard Martin, etc. Highly recommended.
