"Dans une langue très proche de celle d'Homère, Hésiode expose dans une première partie, la généalogie des dieux de l'Olympe. La deuxième partie évoque en une suite de tableaux grandioses, le combat de Zeus contre les Titans. L'ensemble de cette épopée constitue une des sources les plus importantes pour la connaissance de la mythologie grecque."

109 editions published between 1937 and 2019 in 7 languages and held by 337 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

" Le seul auteur du monde qui n'ait jamais soûlé ni dégoûté les hommes ", écrivait Montaigne à propos d'Homère. Et Péguy : " C'est le plus grand. C'est le patron. C'est le père. Il est maître de tout ". Lire ou relire l'Iliade, c'est pénétrer au cœur des mythes qui ont formé l'imagination de l'Occident, constitué son code moral, ouvert ses yeux à la beauté des femmes, à la noblesse des passions, au prix de l'honneur et de la vie. La vaillance y donne la main à l'amour, le rire à la douleur, aux larmes d'Andromaque, aux cris qui accompagnent la mort des héros. A travers le personnage d'Achille, c'est tout le parfum sauvage des cultures primitives que le livre nous restitue, mais voici Hector et avec lui commence l'humanité moderne. [payot.ch]

Oedipus the King by Sophocles( Book )

25 editions published between 1958 and 2018 in 3 languages and held by 131 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Oedipe Roi incarne le mythe grec le plus radical sur l'homme et la tragédie la plus accomplie du plus classique des tragiques grecs. Condamné par le destin à tuer son père et à épouser sa mère, Oedipe a fui loin de ceux qu'il croit ses parents pour aller tuer un homme au carrefour de deux routes - son père -, puis épouser la reine de Thèbes - sa mère. L'homme aux pieds tuméfiés paraît lentement au seuil du palais : il est seul, en plein jour, face à son peuple frappé par la pestilence. Il poursuivra le criminel qui souille la lumière du soleil. Son regard exprime la clairvoyance qui lui a permis de vaincre la Sphinx. Mais les trous de son masque annoncent aussi les orbites qu'il percera devant l'évidence : Oedipe rendra son visage conforme à son masque
The poems of Hesiod by Hesiod( Book )

19 editions published between 1928 and 2019 in 3 languages and held by 124 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Written in the late eighth century BC by Hesiod, one of the oldest known of Greek poets, Theogony and Works and Days represent the earliest account of the origin of the Greek gods, and an invaluable compendium of advice for leading a moral life, both offering unique insights into archaic Greek society ... This translation contains a general introduction, a translator's introduction, notes, and a glossary."--Publisher description
Works and days by Hesiod( Book )

14 editions published between 1912 and 2018 in Greek, Ancient and French and held by 114 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The ancient Greeks revered Hesiod, believing he had beaten Homer in a singing contest and that after his dead body was thrown to sea, it was brought back by dolphins. His Works and Days is one of the most important early works of Greek poetry. Ostensibly written by the poet to chide his lazy brother, it recounts the story of Pandora's box and humanity's decline since the Golden Age, and can be read as a celebration of rural life and a hymn to work
