Hesiod’s creative accomplishment is a stunning feat of speculation. For the first time in Greek thought, a writer gives a dynamic account of the entire order of existence. Hesiod’s poetry explores the origins of humans: the first woman, Pandora, and the Gold, Silver, Bronze, Heroic, and Iron Ages of men.
