A PLACE FOR ME TO FIGURE IT OUT.
Day 2: Hesiod, 5th century b.c.e.
"Rough is the road to happiness"
A lot of sweat put the immortal gods
to the forefront of the virtue
Long and hard and painful
the road to happiness in the beginning.
But when you get there
it becomes so easy
and pleasant that you forget
all the hardships that preceded.
I might as well say that this project has been established by my roommate and me to keep our wits about us during our summer break from school. We are memorizing a poem a day, moving week by week through the major poetic movements of history.
Week 1- Ancient Greek
Week 2-Provencal Literature
Week 8-American Transcendentalist
