This book is the first commentary on the complete fragments of the two Hesiodic epics qCatalogue of Womenq and qGreat Ehoiaiq. The epics are about the famous women from Greek mythology, for example Antiope, Alkmene, Danae and Koronis. The Greek text of the more than 150 fragments is based on the standard edition by R. Merkelbach and M. L. West, but contains also some fragments that are not included in that edition, taking account of more recent research. In addition to the treatment of linguistic and textual problems the stories of the mythical women an the genealogical structure of the epics on the whole are reconstructed in the commentary. The book also presents a detailed bibliography of scholarly research on each fragment. The general introduction treats the question of authorship and time of composition of the epics as well as their social context and their place in the history of Greek literature.This book is the first commentary on the complete fragments of the two Hesiodic epics aquot;Catalogue of Womenaquot; and aquot;Great Ehoiaiaquot;.
