Bruno Nardi’s little book, here presented in an English version, deserves a wide circulation as one of the best brief accounts in existence of Virgil’s youthful career and of the historical background both of the Eclogues and of whatever poetry had preceded that work. It also has a timely interest in view of recent discussion of Virgil’s birthplace. The novel argument of Professor Conway in his Harvard Lectures on the Vergilian Age is here combated with an array of scholarly evidence that forms a valuable supplement to Professor Rand’s In Quest of Virgil’s Birthplace.
