- Archaic and Classical Greek Art by Robin Osborne chapter 2 (pages 21-40)
- "Hesiod and His World"  by Paul Millett
- I borrowed significantly from the Greek History syllabus from the class I took in Fall 2008. My own additions primarily are the art and archaeology sources (some of which I borrowed from my classical world survey course), and some textbook background on Greek History. I also changed many of the translations used either because I liked the editions or translations better, or they were more easily accessible.
- These dates are going to overlap a lot, and each of the articles and chapters deal with different eras. I am going to go by the traditional dates of the Mycenean's arriving in Greece c.2000 and the Dark Age beginning c.1100.
- I realize that this literary analysis-- and specifically an unorthodox Marxist literary analysis-- is a bizarre choice for a history reading list. However, I really like Rose's work and his methodology, and I think that his readings try to situate the reader in the culture of the period, and specifically in terms of what relations between ruling groups.
- The Cambridge Philosophical Journal: The Proceedings of the Cambridge Philosophical Society (1984). I happened upon this article when I was looking for the Hesiod article and I ended up enjoying it.
