    PDF Θεογονία MOBI Ñ ↠ s mebel.pro Θεογονία pdf, Θεογονία PDF/EPUBOne cannot compare Hesiod’s ‘Theogony’ with Homer’s ‘Illiad’ or Ovid’s ‘Metamorphoses’ for that matter Hesiod’s poem does not have the wit and irony of Ovid’s work nor the intriguing plot of an ‘Illiad’ or an ‘Odysseus’ It describes how the Greek universe with its gods came into existence and how Zeus gained sovereignty over the world as “father of gods and men” I would not choose this as a bedside reading unless you have difficulties with falling asleep This is sometimes a list than a poem telling who copulates with whom and who is the offspring from these encounters It has the same effect like counting sheep – you doze off Once Zeus has secured his reign and the Titans are locked up in Tartaros that is exactly what he does most of the t

    PDF Θεογονία MOBI Ñ ↠ s mebel.pro Θεογονία pdf, Θεογονία PDF/EPUBWhen we were introduced to classical Greek mythology in grade seven English our teacher used Hesiod's Theogony as part of the reuired assigned reading materials maybe a bit convoluted and even advanced for young teenagers but I personally much enjoyed this as it gave an interesting poetical and above all historically and culturally authentic introduction to the genealogies of the Greek gods and it was also I admit rather fascinating reading about the many and various sexual exploits of especially Zeus Now while I do not remember precisely

    PDF Θεογονία MOBI Ñ ↠ s mebel.pro Θεογονία pdf, Θεογονία PDF/EPUBThe Greek Genesis26 October 2012 There seems to be a debate as to the usefulness of this little text and I would pretty much fall into the category of not much The reason that I say that is because if this book was lost then we would lose very little of our understanding of Greek Mythology Everything that is contained in this little book is also contained in expanded works such as the Library of Greek Mythology and Ovid While it is a primary source it is still something that we could probably do without Fortunately its small size means that it does not take up much space on my bookshelf however I would probably not find myself ever actually needing to reference it Okay we could probably use it to talk about the accuracy of later works but then again this is Greek mythology there is no consistency in it In fact there isn't even any consistency with th

    PDF Θεογονία MOBI Ñ ↠ s mebel.pro Θεογονία pdf, Θεογονία PDF/EPUBFor a while I'd mistakenly thought Ovid's Metamorphoses was simply a Roman rip off of this book and it turned out I wasn't uite correct They both contain significant stories of the Greco Roman Gods but The Theogony is less detailed has a very different tone and in my personal opinion is rather shite in comparison Perhaps reading this after I already started Ovid was a mistake si

    PDF Θεογονία MOBI Ñ ↠ s mebel.pro Θεογονία pdf, Θεογονία PDF/EPUBYes One of the oldest books ever written maybe 700 BC I can't say much about how it's written because I think it was translated countless times and probably it's not even near to the original but still it was a little difficult to read at the beginning but only few pages later you get used to it and you can fully concentrate on the story Of course it's helpful if you have some basic knowledge in mythology otherwise it can be a little confusing oOIn my opinion it was too short I've read the book in 3 hours and I'm a slow reader^^ I missed the little stories about Hercules or Perseus or Theseus the book is only about the creation of Gods and their children Everything else is only shortly mentioned And you need some imagination to read it ;
