Are you a fan of beautiful poetry, epic voyages and practical advice on gardening and agriculture?

Perhaps you have a little Latin (or a lot) or a childhood nostalgia for the myth and metre of ancient times?

Or perhaps you're just looking for a tale to while away a rainy afternoon.

Whether your interest is studious, academic or whimsical, these two beautifully bound volumes bring you Virgil's vision of the Roman world.

Virgil I includes:
Eclogues
Georgics
Aeneid 1-6

Virgil II includes:
Aeneid 7-12
The Minor Poems

Virgil's original verse is rendered in Latin (page left) with line numbers and footnotes. An English translation by H Rushton Fairclough runs parallel (page right) so one can flit comfortably between the two. The first volume also includes a short biography of Virgil with a summary of extant manuscripts and editions.

Recommended for historians, gardeners, latinists (of course), purveyors of poetry and lovers of myth.
