Theogony are basically the list of geneology of greek gods and goddesses. Frankly theres very little plot in this hesiod poem except for... Lists of names. Weird. Basically it told a story from the beginning of time with Chasm and Kronos eventual defeat by his son Zeus, the captivity of titans, more names and athena's birth. I will read Theogony again in other translation but generally, its like a summary more than a telling. Review much later ( )

Book description

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0941051005, Paperback)

This translation contains an introduction, commentary and interpretive essay and well as numerous notes and annotations to provide the history and background of the epic, and the mythological context in which it is placed. Hesiod's straightforward account of family conflict among the gods is the best and earliest evidence of what the ancient Greeks believed about the beginning of the world. Includes Hesiod's "Works and Days", lines 1-201, and material from the Library of Apollodorus.
