Overview


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