    Perhaps the best poem I've ever read, and unquestionably the finest poem in Latin literature, Virgil's fourth book of the Georgics is typically selected for the Orpheus and Eurydice epyllion. I'd posit that the O&E mini-epic is an epyllion within an epyllion. There's an unquestionable distinction demarcating G. 4 from books 1-3, and it's not wrong to read it as its own work; Virgil wanders from his theme, turning to apiculture, which takes the reader on a tour-de-force, headlong along the ancien Perhaps the best poem I've ever read, and unquestionably the finest poem in Latin literature, Virgil's fourth book of the Georgics is typically selected for the Orpheus and Eurydice epyllion. I'd posit that the O&E mini-epic is an epyllion within an epyllion. There's an unquestionable distinction demarcating G. 4 from books 1-3, and it's not wrong to read it as its own work; Virgil wanders from his theme, turning to apiculture, which takes the reader on a tour-de-force, headlong along the ancient world from Rome to Aristaeus' wanderings, to his journey into the sea—where Virgil paints an underwater world as vivid as <>. There's Proteus, there's Orpheus, and the reader goes to the lowest thesauri of Hell, then northward to the Rhodopes and Hyperborean mountains—from Thrace to Egypt—from corner to corner. It's marvellous. The spondees slow the reader thoughtfully, the dactyls excite. There's nothing like it. It's worth learning Latin just to read this book. And if all of Latin literature were to burn in a fire (should it?), I would suggest rescuing this poem alone, should one have time. I like to think of Virgil as a 1960s rock group that released three Beatles records. The Bucolica are his Help. We see the flowering genius here, but it's still not quite what we'd expect. The Aeneid is his White Album: it wanders, it's not sure what it wants to be, it has profound moments and dull moments. (It's certainly not, in my estimation, the greatest poem in Latin.) But here we have his tender mid-career. He's established enough to be self-referential (n.b. those final lines), and he's trying every tool in his kit to do something previously impossible. He succeeds. Books 1-3 of the Georgics are his Rubber Soul, but Book 4 of the Georgics is pure Revolver.

    Having read this more slowly, I can appreciate it a lot more. I think it would read far better in Latin but in English it's still worth a go Having read this more slowly, I can appreciate it a lot more. I think it would read far better in Latin but in English it's still worth a go
