He recalls Aristophanes in his rejection of the idealised hero of epic literature in favour of an idealised view of the farmer.Two different—yet early—traditions record the site of Hesiod's grave.A sensible pale green tweed suit with contrasting pussy-bow blouse first worn to a church service for Save The Children in Windsor in 1991 (left)and at her most Iron Ladyish ten years later for a school visit in Banstead, Surrey Pure Eighties ballgown — those stripes, that silver, those billowing sleeves — and Anne wore it first to that quintessential event of the decade, the 1984 Berkeley Square Ball (left).It performs an encore nine years later at a charity performance by the Bolshoi Ballet at the Royal Albert Hall in 1993 (right) and she doesn’t seem to have aged a bit This was the Princess Royal’s lucky Olympic fund-raising dress.However, while his poetry features some Aeolisms there are no words that are certainly Boeotian.His basic language was the main literary dialect of the time, Homer's Ionian.Epic narrative allowed poets like Homer no opportunity for personal revelations.
The father probably spoke in the Aeolian dialect of Cyme but Hesiod probably grew up speaking the local Boeotian, belonging to the same dialect group.
There are three explicit references in Works and Days, as well as some passages in his Theogony that support inferences made by scholars.
The former poem says that his father came from Cyme in Aeolis (on the coast of Asia Minor, a little south of the island Lesbos) and crossed the sea to settle at a hamlet, near Thespiae in Boeotia, named Ascra, "a cursed place, cruel in winter, hard in summer, never pleasant" (Works 640).
In spite of Hesiod's complaints about poverty, life on his father's farm could not have been too uncomfortable if Works and Days is anything to judge by, since he describes the routines of prosperous yeomanry rather than peasants.
His farmer employs a friend (Works and Days 370) as well as servants (502, 573, 597, 608, 766), an energetic and responsible ploughman of mature years (469 ff.), a slave boy to cover the seed (441–6), a female servant to keep house (405, 602) and working teams of oxen and mules (405, 607f.).
