Virgil: Georgics: Volume 2, Books III-IV (Cambridge Greek and Latin Classics)


This volume, the second of two companion volumes which provide a detailed commentary, with text, on the whole of Virgil’s Georgics, is devoted to Books III and IV of the poem. Professor Thomas describes the Georgics as ‘perhaps the most difficult, certainly the most controversial, poem in Roman literature’. He presents the Georgics as the finished poem of Virgil’s mature years, approaching it not merely as a part of the tradition of didactic poetry, but rather as a work which confronts, behind its generic appearance, issues not essentially different from those which inform the Eclogues and Aeneid.
