Editorial Reviews for this title:
Synopsis:
A new version, by the acclaimed translator of The Odes of Horace and Gilgamesh.

The greatest poet of Rome's golden age, Virgil was born in 70 b.c. in northern Italy. His Eclogues-satirical, passionate, nostalgic-are among the most influential poems of love and pastoral fancy ever written. David Ferry-whose versions of the Odes of Horace and Gilgamesh established him as a master translator-skillfully captures the playfulness and tones of Virgil's magical verse. This bilingual edition includes concise, informative notes and an excellent Introduction.

Praise for David Ferry's translation of The Odes of Horace:

Summary: The Eclogues of Virgil gave definitive form to the pastoral mode, and these magically beautiful poems, which were influential in so much subsequent literature, perhaps best exemplify what pastoral can do. "Song replying to song replying to song", touchingly comic, poignantly sad, sublimely joyful, the various music that these shepherds make echoes in scenes of repose and harmony, and of hardship and trouble in work and love.A bilingual edition, The Eclogues of Virgil includes concise, informative notes and an Introduction that describes the fundamental role of this deeply original book in the pastoral tradition.
