    The Aeneid is one of the greatest works in all of world literature. It is filled with mythology, history, and archaeology; it is infused with patriotism, religious feeling, and pathos; it is rich in adventure and romance. As the story begins, a storm shipwrecks Aeneas and his Trojan followers near Carthage in North Africa. There, Aeneas falls in love with Dido, queen of Carthage. 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.

    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.

    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.
