Review

Review from previous edition: "the combination of truth to the words Virgil wrote, natural vernacular speech and a general at-homeness on the land make Fallon's an inspired translation" --Seamus Heaney, Irish Times

"magnificent new translation...Fallon is the perfect translator for the Georgics" --Bernard O'Donoghue, Times Literary Supplement

"supple and assured new translation" --Jonathan Bate, TLS Books of the Year
