More About Conington's Virgil by Hardie; Monica Gale; Philip Hardie
 
 
 
Overview
John Conington's three-volume edition of The Works of Virgil, begun in 1852, has long been unavailable except in rare second-hand sets. The whole work is now being reissued in six affordable paperbacks, with new introductions setting the commentary in its context. Well into the twentieth century Conington's Virgil remained the sine qua non for school and undergraduate students and their teachers; Conington's commentary is remarkably close and uncompromising in its engagement with the detail of Virgil's Latin, as well as its literary sensitivity; it still has much to offer the modern reader. This volume contains Virgil's text of the Georgics; Conington's introduction to and commentary on the Georgics; Philip Hardie's general assessment of Conington; Monica Gale's introduction to the Georgics, and also includes Conington's index.
