Hesiod, an ancient Greek poet, left us an invaluable legacy in the form of his works. Hesiod's writings hold immense value for understanding ancient Greek culture and worldview. They combine mythological narratives, philosophical musings, and practical advice, making them relevant and engaging for people across time. 

«Theogony»: This epic poem takes us on a captivating journey through the origins of the world, describing the birth and hierarchy of the gods. Hesiod lays the foundation for early natural philosophy, exploring the forces and laws of nature that govern the world.
«Works and Days»: This didactic poem goes beyond mythology, offering practical advice on farming and moral guidance. Hesiod shares his thoughts on virtue, justice, and the importance of work in achieving a happy life.
«The Shield of Heracles»: This epic poem transports us to a world of heroic deeds. Hesiod depicts Heracles' epic battle with Cycnus, vividly illustrating the hero's shield adorned with mythological scenes. This work follows Homer's style, particularly the description of Achilles' shield in the eighteenth book of the «Iliad».
