    This older translation contains works attributed to Homer and Hesiod, the Homeric pieces all being later than the Iliad and Odyssey I d already read some, particularly the Hesiod, in other versiona and therefore only read the texts not read previously.

    This is my favorite single volume of the bilingual Loeb series It has all of Hesiod, the fragments of the Epic Cycle, and the Margites and the satirical Battle of Frogs and Mice Useful index is particularly helpful with Hesiod all those names
