9780374146344: The Eclogues of Virgil: A Translation

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:
