The Georgics by Virgil

The Georgics by Virgil

The Georgics by Virgil

Virgil was born to a farming family, and his poetic work named The Georgics comes as close to his heart as it possibly can. He dedicated this work to the land, the farming communities and the issues surrounding complex relationships and political situation of the time. Virgil’s love for the earth and everything that grows and lives there makes this poem one of his most expressive and passionate.

Publius Vergilius Maro, or Virgil, was an ancient Roman poet of the Augustan period. He is known for three major works of Latin literature, the Eclogues, the Georgics, and the epic Aeneid.
