Edward Rand was a prolific scholar of Latin literature published several translations of Horace and Boethius and a number of works on the Classical tradition in Western culture and the relevance of the Classics in the modern era. In this essay he uses intertextuality to prove the unity of our received text of Hesiod's Works and Days by showing areas where Horace references Hesoid in such a way as to confirm that sections of the Greek poem under contention existed at least as far back as the first century AD. From there, he finds references in other works of Greek and Latin literature to defend the then-embattled Hesiod against criticism for inconsistency of vision. As with most of Rand's work, this piece also shows the results to be gained from the creative application of intertextual readings and the masterful touch of a well-read mind.
