PREFACE

In the following dissertation no dogmatism has been attempted where certainty is impossible, but it has generally been assumed that the Works and Days is the only genuine work of Hesiod, and that a very considerable part of it is due to his genius, whatever his sources. It has also been taken for granted that Hesiod was influenced by the Ionic Epic, and was somewhat later than Homer.

Acknowledgement is due to Professor Paul Shorey of the University of Chicago, at whose suggestion the work was undertaken, to Professors W. G. Hale, C. D. Buck, and H. W. Prescott, also of the University of Chicago, to Professor M. W. Humphreys of the University of Virginia, under whom the author first read the Works and Days, and to Professor W. G. Manly of the University of Missouri for the use of his private library.

H. M. HAYS.
