"Athanassakis provides a readable and stimulating English version... [and] displays a good command of Hesiodic scholarship."--Peter L. Smith "Echos du Monde Classique/Classical Views "
"Athanassakis's notes are informative and interesting, full of cross references to the ancient sources and comparisons to Biblical, Norse, and other sources. His anthropological interest includes and indeed highlights modern Greece... I found his translation of epithets refreshing and intriguing."--Allan Wooley "New England Classical Newsletter "
"The translations in themselves have the pleasing flow, sound, rhythm, and idiom of good English poetry even though... they follow the original Greek text line by line and adhere closely to its literal meaning."--Choice
