[52] Hesiod rarely rises to any height, while a great part of his works is filled almost entirely with names1: none the less, his maxims of moral wisdom provide a useful model, the smooth flow of his words and structure merit our approval, and he is assigned the first place among writers of the intermediate style.

1 Especially the Theogony.
