Le buvard dit que le gant a ce prix-là. Il ne dit pas du tout Voilà ton Moi, mais Reduplique.
Latin poet Virgil, likely published in 29 BC. The Georgics is considered Virgil’s second major work, following his Eclogues and preceding the Aeneid. The poem draws on a variety of prior sources and has influenced many later authors from antiquity to the present. The work consists of 2,188 hexametric verses divided into four books.
The yearly timings by the rising and setting of particular stars were valid for the precession epoch of Virgil’s time, and so are not always valid now. Virgil begins his poem with a summary of the four books, followed by a prayer to various agricultural deities as well as Augustus himself. It takes as its model the work on farming by Varro, but differs from it in important ways. Prominent themes of the second book include agriculture as man’s struggle against a hostile natural world, often described in violent terms, and the ages of Saturn and Jupiter.
Like the first book, it begins with a poem addressing the divinities associated with the matters about to be discussed: viticulture, trees, and the olive. The third book is chiefly and ostensibly concerned with animal husbandry. It consists of two principal parts, the first half is devoted to the selection of breed stock and the breeding of horses and cattle. It concludes with a description of the furor induced in all animals by sexual desire.
