Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This masterful new verse translation of Virgils Georgics speaks as powerfully to our times as it did to the ancient poets. Janet Lembke presents this unsurpassed nature poem in an American idiom that is both elegant and sensitive to the meaning and rhythm of Virgils original paean to the earth.

"This work is clearly by a master translator. Lembke moves easily from the Latin hexameter into English verse of loose, five-beat rhythm that well captures that of the original."—Michael Putnam, Brown University

"A major new translation."—Rosanna Warren
