AUTHOR

SUMMARY

Rendered in an idiom drawn from present-day nature guides, gardening handbooks, how-to manuals, and scientific treatises -- and in a style influenced by twentieth-century poetry -- this bold new translation seeks to renew our appreciation of a work often relegated to the pigeonhole of didactic poetry about farming. In doing so, it reveals the Georgics as a remarkable window on Roman conceptions of the natural world and of the place of human life within it -- and also conveys a sense of how daring were Virgil's poetics in their day. Footnotes offer a wealth of information on mythology, agriculture, wildlife, geography, and astronomy while highlighting the technical, scientific, ethnographic, and other registers of the poem.Virgil is the author of 'Georgics', published 2002 under ISBN 9780872206090 and ISBN 0872206092.
