This Georgics does not read much like any previous version of it. Joseph Farrell, Professor of Classical Studies, University of Pennsylvania. Yesterday, I finished discussion of Virgil's Georgics with my sixty freshmen. I had not in over forty years used the Georgics in this course or its various analogues, The Human Event, and I was a bit hesitant to use it this time, fearing it might be too distant and arcane for my mostly urban students' sensibilities.

A lecture about the ancient Greek myth of Orpheus in the movie Black Orpheus (1959), Ovid's Metamorphoses and Virgil's Georgics, for an online class in the Classical World and Film in the Department of Classics at Rutgers University in Spring 2015 by Kristina Chew.

The Georgics is a poem by Latin poet Virgil, likely published in 29 B. Virgil was regarded by the Romans as their greatest poet, an estimation that subsequent generations have upheld.

Virgil was regarded by the Romans as their greatest poet, an estimation that subsequent generations have upheld. His fame rests chiefly upon the Aeneid, which tells the story of Rome’s legendary founder and proclaims the Roman mission to civilize the world under divine guidance.

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.
