Jan. 22, 2013 - PRLog -- Hesiod Theogony 800-700 BC is a highly engaging book that provides a practical methodology for studying the ancient Greek language.

The longest of the three surviving works of Hesiod, Theogony is a story consisting of 1022 verses that describe the creation of the cosmos and the birth of the Gods. The work is divided into five sections and begins when Hesiod is authorized by Mousai to hear the story of the universal creation. Inspired by these tales, he composes Theogony.  

Theogony depicts the story of the creation of the universe from Khaos and the elements of the first deities. Being the creator and the leader of the universal civilization, the God Zeus plays a major role in the story. It is his weddings to Metis, Themis, Mnemosyne, and Eurynome, who represent law, institutions, and justice, that enable him to form the basis for serenity and prosperity among the cosmos.

Metaphrasis: Dimitrios Kiriakopoulos grew up in the shadow of Mount Olympus and his lifelong fascination with the Gods who are said to reside there is part of what makes Hesiod Theogony 800-700 BC such a compelling read.
