Hesiod (fl. 750 BCE) was a Greek poet who lived sometime between 750 and 650 BCE, around the same as Homer. He is generally regarded as the first written poet in the Western tradition to regard himself as an individual persona with an active role to play in his subject.
Contributions to culture
Hesiod was interested in agriculture, going as far as writing a poem called Works and Days, which detailed numerous agriculturally relevant things, such as how long to dry grapes to maximize the sweetness of the wine made out of them. Hesiod was also one of the many Greek writers to commonly mention honey in his works.
