The Hesiodic Catalogue of Women and Archaic Greece
This book examines the extant fragments of the Archaic Greek poem known in antiquity as Hesiod's /Catalogue of Women/. Kirk Ormand Shows that the poem should be read intertextually with other hexameter poetry from the eight to the sixth centuries BCE, especially that of Homer, Hesiod and the Cyclic epics. Through literary interaction with these poems, the /Catalogue/ reflects political and social tensions in the Archaic period with regard to the forms of power that were claimed by members of the elite class.
