Vergil's Georgics by Katharina Volk
Book DescriptionThis volume, together with its companion on the Eclogues and the previously published volume on the Aeneid, completes the coverage of Vergil's poetry in Oxford Readings in Classical Studies. It collects ten classic papers on the Georgics written between 1970 and 1999 by leading scholars from several different countries. The contributions are representative of recent developments in Vergilian scholarship, with some discussing general issues raised by the work and others treating important individual poems and passages. The editor's Introduction places the essays in their context. A conspectus of contemporary Georgics criticism, the book will be helpful to students who are encountering the poems for the first time - all Latin has been translated - and will also serve as a reference work for more seasoned scholars.

Roman Reflections, Hardback (November 2015)
This volume reasserts the significance of Roman philosophy by exploring how the Romans developed sophisticated forms of philosophical discourse shaped by their own history, concepts, and values, as well as, crucially, by the Latin language.
Forgotten Stars, Hardback (March 2011)
A collection of essays on the Astronomica of the first-century Stoic author Manilius, a poem which purports to teach the reader the art of astrology and the means by which an accurate horoscope may be cast. An international team of scholars analyse this dynamic poem from a variety of perspectives.
Ovid, Hardback (September 2010)
The first general introduction to Ovid written in English in over 20 years, this book provides a unique and accessible introduction to the complete works of Ovid. Using a thematic approach, Volk lays out what we know about Ovid's life, presents the author's works within their poetic genres, and discusses central Ovidian themes.
