Hesiod begins speaking from the first-person perspective as Hesiod the Poet, switching from first-person singular to plural, and then shifts to tell most of the story from a third-person perspective.
The Theogony is narrated in the past tense.
The Theogony by definition is an account of the origin and genealogy of the gods. The term comes the Greek theo, meaning "god," and the Greek gonia, meaning "to be born."
