Within the brooding and melancholy atmosphere of Virgil's pious masterpiece lies the mythic story of Aeneas and his flight from burning Troy, taking with him across the Mediterranean the survivors of the Greek onslaught. Aeneas, after many travails and adventures, including a love affair with Dido Queen of Carthage and a visit to the underworld to see his father, ends up in Italy.

    Profoundly poetic yet gloriously accessible, this is the best way to experience a work that has remained a centerpiece of Western civilization for 2,000 years. Fitzgerald's rendering speaks directly to the modern listener, inviting us to share the excitement, adventure, and human tears as Aeneas, the warrior hero, escapes from the burning city of Troy, embarks on a long and perilous journey, and eventually, triumphantly establishes a new nation: Rome.

    Virgil's Georgics ranks as one of the most precious pastoral poems ever written, and it has served as a model for its type ever since. Georgics means "of or relating to agriculture or rural life" and it comes from the Greek word, "georgicus". Virgil's main theme in this, his second great work after The Eclogues, was the importance of peace both in the spiritual and physical sense.

It is filled with mythology, history, and archaeology; it is infused with patriotism, religious feeling, and pathos; it is rich in adventure and romance.

But the gods order him to leave for Italy. In despair, Dido commits suicide. Upon finally reaching Italy, Aeneas goes down into the lower world and learns about his future descendants, the Romans.

    Un meurtre odieux a été commis. Porphyre Petrovitchi, juge d'instruction, soupçonne un jeune étudiant en droit, Raskolnikov. Plutôt que de le confondre sur le terrain du droit, vulgaire et insignifiant, il conduit le suspect vers ces zones de la conscience où le meurtre est insupportable car il détruit la raison d'être de l'homme en tant qu'homme. Autour de ce noyau gravitent plusieurs personnages qui, ensemble, offrent le tableau d'une condition humaine d'autant plus tragique qu'elle est l'expression de l'impuissance des individus de vivre selon le grain de lumière qui est en eux.
