The Satires, Epistles and Art of poetry of Horace by Horace( Book )
20 editions published between 1870 and 2006 in English and held by 116 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In venturing to follow up my translation of the Odes of Horace by a version of the Satires and Epistles, I feel that I am in no way entitled to refer to the former as a justification of my boldness in undertaking the latter. Both classes of works are doubtless explicable as products of the same original genius: but they differ so widely in many of their characteristics, that success in rendering the one, though greater than any which I can hope to have attained, would afford no presumption that the translator would be found to have the least aptitude for the other

Virgil's epic poem describing the fall of Troy, in English blank verse by Robert Fitzgerald
Satires by Persius( Book )
19 editions published between 1893 and 1998 in 3 languages and held by 62 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In the ancient world, the Satires belonged to a small class of works which remained in constant circulation. They were read in the schools, were commented upon by scholars, and were forever the subject of controversy. This translation boasts several advantages over previous English versions : it is the work of a poet rather than a Latinist, and it offers a faithful rendering of Persius' franker passages which the Victorians never dared to translate fully

Zeus has suffered and sinned and grown wise, and thereby shows humans how to grow wise also

The Georgics by Virgil( Book )
4 editions published in 2007 in English and Latin and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Part agricultural manual, part political poem and allegory, the Georgics' scenes are real and vivid, and the poet-farmer Peter Fallon restores to life the sights, sounds, and textures of the ancient Italian landscape. - ;'A countryman cleaves earth with his crooked plough. Such is the labour. of his life. So he sustains his native land ... '. Virgil's affectionate poem of the land does not admit brief excerpts, any more than the labour of the farmer can easily be shortened. His verse, descriptive and narrative, brings us the disappointments as well as the rewards of the countryman's year-round
