The Georgics: A Poem of the Land. Translated by Kimberly Johnson (Penguin Classics) (New)
Book ID: 9780140455632, 0140455639
Usually available in 3-5 days
Virgil's glorious celebration of the natural world-brought vividly to life in a powerful new translation.
Virgil's Georgics is an extraordinary work and one of the greatest poems of the classical world. This new verse translation captures the rich beauty and abundant imagery of the original, recreating the ancient masterpiece for our times. "Georgic" means "to work the earth," and The Georgics combines practical wisdom on tending the land with exuberant eulogies to the rhythms of nature. From idyllic descriptions of hills strewn with wild berries in "vinespread autumn" to warnings of gods and natural disasters, it is at once a reflection on the cycles of life, death, and rebirth; an argument for the nobility of labor; and an impassioned reflection on the Roman empire.

Allied to ancient Gnostic cosmological concepti...
