With the Eclogues, Virgil established his reputation as a major poet, and with the Georgics, he created a masterpiece of Latin poetry. The Eclogues unfolds in an idyllic landscape shadowed by thwarted romance and civil war.  The Georgics celebrates Italy's natural beauty, the values of piety and family life, and the vitality of the Italian people.
