Editorial Reviews


"...helpful insights here into two fascinating poems."--New England Classical Journal

"God and the Land...offers perceptive readings in clear prose. English translations precede all citations from Latin and Greek. Nelson's discussion, which always begins with basics, would be a useful introduction for undergraduates."--Religious Studies Review

Format: Hardcover
Nelson brings a new perspectinve to this subject, an insight that only someone versed in classics and the realities of farming could bring. This book is the best argument yet for scholars to get out of the classroom on occasion and into the feild, as it were.
