Virgil's Georgics

The latest edition of the Claremont Review of Books contains a review of two new translations of Virgil's Georgics. Reading the article brought back wistful memories. I was a Classics major in college and came very close to going to graduate school.

I generally preferred Greek, but among the Roman poets Virgil's Georgics was a favorite, although I enjoyed the Eclogues even more. It's hard for me to recapture, after all these years, much less explain, the atmosphere these poems convey.
