Product description

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)
