Vergil's Georgica is the culmination of a long tradition in antiquity of poems about agriculture, beginning with
Hesiod in the eighth c. BC. His poem is a rich admixture of allusion to that tradition: didactic poem, eulogium

model, Lucretius. Thomas Jefferson imagined his gentleman farmer tilling his fields with a copy of the
Georgics between the handles of the plowshare. (Summary by Malone)
