Schoenberger, Melissa. 2014. Translation and Literature 23, no. 1: 23–41.

This work analyzes the usage of the word ‘peace’ in Dryden’s translation of Virgil’s ‘Georgics’ and explores the notion of the farmer as a paradigm for peace. Though this is certainly an unconventional view of a classical text, it offers an interesting interpretation whereby peace is achieved through an individual connection with nature as opposed to the “glory” of conflict and conquest.
