Editorial Reviews

Review

"The debt of Aeschylus to Hesiod, as well as to Homer and Solon and other poets, has always been realized, though never thoroughly explored; yet only a just appreciation of the debt can enable us to measure the originality of Aeschylus. Solmsen's study is therefore most welcome"—American Journal of Philology



"The book is rich in ideas and its suggestions give a valuable contribution towards a real understanding of the Greek archaic period."—Classical Philology



"Solmsen has attempted . . . to answer two questions: what was original in Hesiod's poems (as distinct from the mass of traditional myth and religious beliefs incorporated in them) and what Solon and Aeschylus derived from him. The author examines the Prometheia and the Eumenides at length, and he devotes a chapter to Solon. It is an important book."—Greece and Rome



"A wealth of acute observation and insight. . . . There is much of value here for the philologist as well as for the student of religious development. . . . Hesiod emerges from these pages as a religious thinker of impressive stature."—Journal of Religion
