Virgil's Georgics by Publius Vergilius Maro( Book )

357 editions published between 1490 and 2021 in 15 languages and held by 4,125 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Five Points (an intersection in lower Manhattan formed when Anthony Street was extended to meet Orange and Cross-today's Baxter and North Streets), was the most infamous neighborhood in nineteenth-century America. Visitors from Charles Dickens to Abraham Lincoln flocked to Five Points to witness the filthy streets, bordellos, gambling dens, and tenements that housed the lowest of the low. A close look at Five Points reveals a hidden world. As one of the most ethnically varied areas in the nation's most diverse city, The Five Points story is a classic American example of immigrant energy and ambition. From "Bowery Boy" culture to the invention of tap dance, to the most famous prize-fight of the century, to the timeless photographs of Jacob Riis, Five Points illuminates the colorful history of a fascinating community
The Aeneid of Virgil by Publius Vergilius Maro( Book )

406 editions published between 1740 and 2021 in 7 languages and held by 3,968 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The fifth book of the Aeneid is outshone in brillance by the books before and after it, but it is indispensable to both. In the structure of the poem it makes possible the progression from the tragic events of Book IV to the mystery and majesty of Book VI ; it interposes a different kind of scenery between the conquest of two mountain summits. Here we see the skill with which Virgil handles his transitions of tone and intensity, for in the course of Book V the tension is gradually released and gradually built up again. We see too the skill with which the intensity is changed without any change in the major themes of the poem as it moves ; the scenery is different but entirely harmonious. A careful reading of Book IV, V, and VI will do much to illuminate how a great epic poet builds up his structure in such a way that his poem will not fall apart, a fate which often overtakes the lesser epics. -- Preface

10 editions published between 2012 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,177 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Love and tragedy dominate book four of Virgil's most powerful work, building on the violent emotions invoked by the storms, battles, warring gods, and monster-plagued wanderings of the epic's opening. Destined to be the founder of Roman culture, Aeneas, nudged by the gods, decides to leave his beloved Dido, causing her suicide in pursuit of his historical destiny. A dark plot, in which erotic passion culminates in sex, and sex leads to tragedy and death in the human realm, unfolds within the larger horizon of a supernatural sphere, dominated by power-conscious divinities. Dido is Aeneas' most significant other, and in their encounter Virgil explores timeless themes of love and loyalty, fate and fortune, the justice of the gods, imperial ambition and its victims, and ethnic differences. This course book offers a portion of the original Latin text, study questions, a commentary, and interpretative essays. Designed to stretch and stimulate readers, Ingo Gildenhard's incisive commentary will be of particular interest to students of Latin at both A2 and undergraduate level. It extends beyond detailed linguistic analysis to encourage critical engagement with Virgil's poetry and discussion of the most recent scholarly thought."--Publisher's website

7 editions published between 1999 and 2015 in English and held by 503 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Eclogues of Virgil gave definitive form to the pastoral mode, and these magically beautiful poems, so influential in so much subsequent literature, perhaps best exemplify what pastoral can do. These songs made a world; it is a world all the more beautiful for being vulnerable to the intrusions of power and of natural calamity and loss. A bilingual edition, The Eclogues of Virgil: a translation includes concise, informative notes and an introduction that describes the fundamental role of this deeply original book in the great pastoral tradition."--
