The second volume contains The Shield and extant fragments of other poems, including the Catalogue of Women, that were attributed to Hesiod in antiquity. The former provides a Hesiodic counterpoint to the shield of Achilles in the Iliad; the latter presents several legendary episodes organized according to the genealogy of their heroes’ mortal mothers. None of these is now thought to be by Hesiod himself, but all have considerable literary and historical interest.

Loeb is universally reliable, and this book is no exception. While not exactly an exciting read, I did not buy it for that. In dealing with Greek mythology, sometimes it is hard to tell the players without a scorecard. This is a good scorecard.

This is a great edition of the works of Hesiod, with the translation done remarkably well. As a Greek, I enjoyed both books-Hesiod: Volume I, Theogony. Works and Days. Testimonia (Loeb Classical Library No. 57N) and Hesiod: Volume II, The Shield. Catalogue of Women. Other Fragments. (Loeb Classical Library No. 503)- since its, in my oppinion, one of the best mythological accounts i have ever read. I may be biased since I am greek, but I think you will agree with me once you have gone through both volumes of this edition.
