The Georgics- Publius Vergilius Maro
Virgil was arguably the finest Latin poet there was. This book of poetry is written in praise of Italy: its bounty; its climate; its way of life. It is about the bucolic life, about the beauty of working the land but Virgil's poetry makes it so much more. It also includes the story of Orpheus and Eurydice contemporaneously popularised by Virgil's friend Ovid.
