      The reign of Julian the Apostate, a nephew of Constantine, saw the last serious attempt to restore civic polytheism as the official religion.

Perhaps the most successful poems are the traditional ones, on nature, love, time, the poetic retrospect, etc. But the poems concerned with the present.
