Podrobný popis:

Publikace: GEORGICS (Oxford World´s Classics New Edition) - VIRGIL. The Georgics (literally 'the farmer's life') is Virgil's great poem

of the land, part farming manual, part hymn of praise, containing

some of Virgil's finest descriptive writing. Peter Fallon's

wonderful new translation, first published in 2004 by Fallon's

Gallery Press, has won plaudits from all sides, including the

Poetry Book Society Recommendation and praise from Seamus Heaney,

Bernard Donoghue and Jonathan Bate. Coupled here with an

introduction and notes by the classical scholar Elaine Fantham, it

offers the best introduction to Virgil's masterpiece. Fallon is

both a poet and a farmer, uniquely suited to translating this poem.

Elaine Fantham's introduction considers Virgil's life and poetry in

its historical context and the special qualities of the poem. Her

notes gloss the many classical and mythological allusions. 'A

countryman cleaves earth with his crooked plough. Such is the

labour of his life. So he sustains his native land ...' Virgil's

affectionate poem of the land does not admit brief excerpts, any

more than the labour of the farmer can easily be shortened. His

verse, descriptive and narrative, brings us the disappointments as

well as the rewards of the countryman's year-round devotion to his

crops, his vines and olives, livestock great and small, and the

complex society of bees. Part agricultural manual, part political

poem and allegory, the Georgics' scenes are real and vivid, and the

poet-farmer Peter Fallon makes us feel the sights, sounds, and

textures of the ancient Italian landscape. Publikace: GEORGICS (Oxford World´s Classics New Edition) - VIRGIL. antická literatura v anglickém překladu
