    The Aeneid represents one of the greatest cultural and artistic achievements of Western Civilization. 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.

    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.
