In this important and original new book, Joseph Farrell argues that there is a detailed and extensive program of literary allusion in Vergil's Georgics, moving basically from Hesiod and Aratus in the first book, to Lucretius in the middle two, to Homer in the fourth.

This program involves what he calls "analytic" allusion, namely a reconstruction or interpretation of the texts. Rome stands at the center of the poem. The city's founding, and the empire that will grow from it, is the endpoint of Aeneas 's fate.

Once Aeneas learns of Rome explicitly in Anchises 's descriptions of it in the Underworld, the city comes to symbolize for him the pinnacle of his eventual achievement, spurring him on through all of his subsequent trials and tribulations.

The death of Virgil is a book that really didn't work for me, and I've spent some time trying to figure out why. It wasn't because of the obvious things - bad writing, one-dimensional characters, uninteresting plot - or because of a pet peeve, but I had to force myself to finish it/5.

While it is common to have at least 2 different spellings for Greek names, it is not so common with the names of ancient Romans.
