Bucolica et Georgica

£9.99

Product description

Lovely 1960 Macmillian and Co edition of P. Vergili Maronis ( Virgil). Red hardcover but no DJ, gold embossed detail on the spine. Great condition very minimum amount of annotation and all in pencil.Introduction and notes by T.E.Page Formerly a Fellow of St John's College Cambridge. Binding fully in tact. Pages yellowing but only age related not any damage. Virgil was an ancient Roman poet of the Augustan period and is known for 3 major works of Latin literature. The Bucolica and the Georgics and the much more widely studied epic Aeneid. Ranking as one of Romes greatest poets Aeneid was modelled on the Iliad and the Odyssey. The charming preface in this edition sees Page begin by querying the 'youth of the day' 'limiting' their reading to the Aeneid. For any students of the Classics or anyone with an interest these study guides always seem far superior to newly printed editions. Much emphasis is placed on the mastery of the rhythm of the poems and the delicacy of the observation of Rome at the time.
