Hesiod - The Theogony

"Both the Theogony and Works and Days are, by any modern standards, incredibly boring."

"As I expected, there were a TON of pronouns - or more precisely, around 300 (no, I didn't count them, thanks) - in a mere 30 pages of the text"

"Although false, Hesiod's theology of the beginning of the world is interesting and makes me, as a Christian, realize just how good our God really is. He tells these Myths as true, even though they were not really believed in his time, or before his time."

"a dry and dull reading experience, irrelevant to my life."
