In Theogony, the 8th century BC poet Hesiod constructs the genealogy of the gods, while in Works and Days, dedicated to his brother, he gives advice on how to live. Hesiod is credited with the earliest written mythology of his day, a retelling of the various oral tales from earlier cultures, that was generally accepted by ancient Greece. We'll also read Prometheus Bound by Aeschylus since Hesiod's Theogony devotes a section to this story. All of these works are short (~25 pages). Use whichever versions you prefer. Here are a few online translations: http://www.gutenberg.org/files/348/348-h/348-h.htm http://www.sacred-texts.com/cla/hesiod/works.htm https://www.poetryintranslation.com/PITBR/Greek/Prometheus.php
