TLGMarathon: Hesiod, resources

Post by Redhead » Thu May 16, 2019 8:18 pm

Χαίρετε! Since I have just now finished the Iliad and will begin The Odyssey tomorrow, I thought I might as well post the topic on Hesiod in the meantime. See the first post of TLGMarathon for background. Of course I haven't yet acquired any of the items below but I have gone through L’Année phil. and looked for anything that could be of value. If anyone has any comments or preferences I would be very happy to hear your opinion on what is most useful and what might be skipped.

Not at all. It took me from Jan 1 to May 17. But I started the Odyssey topic at the end of my reading of the Iliad, and now I have started the Hesiod topic at the beginning of the Odyssey. :) It's seems like there's limited interest at the moment, so I thought I should give it some time. :)
