"This work is clearly by a master translator. Lembke moves easily from the Latin hexameter into English verse of loose, five-beat rhythm that well captures that of the original." Michael Putnam, Brown University "A major new translation." Rosanna Warren"

In this masterful new verse translation, Virgil’s Georgics speaks as powerfully to our times as it did to the ancient poet’s. Janet Lembke presents this unsurpassed nature poem in an American idiom that is both elegant and sensitive to the meaning and rhythm of Virgil’s original paean to the earth.
