Virgil's Georgics is on my reading list this year as I've been intrigued with his ancient gardening wisdom since reading about him in Frances Mayes's Under the Tuscan Sun (one of my favorite books ever and one I read at least twice a year~don't let the movie make your mind up for you).

According to the Atlantic Monthly blurb accompanying Ferry's translation, his new translation of the Georgics will be coming out in May, which should be interesting to check out. Frances Mayes's book is one of those that I cannot believe I haven't read yet...but I know I will one of these days. I saw about 5 minutes of the movie flipping through channels one night and, yes, it looked pretty preposterous.


I've been translating Catullus lately. The days I slept through Mr Nemesh's latin class in eighth grade ar coming back to haunt me. Hmmm...

Thanks for the tip on David Young's stuff.
