Editorial Reviews

New Republic
“An attractive and serious translation that gives English readers a good idea of the Georgics.”—David Quint, New Republic

— David Quint

From the Publisher

“A major new translation.”—Rosanna Warren

“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
