Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Robert Fitzgerald's magnificent translation of Virgil's epic poem was a major literary event at its release in 1983; today it is an acknowledged masterpiece. Profoundly poetic yet gloriously accessible, this is the best way to experience a work that has remained a centerpiece of Western civilization for 2,000 years. Fitzgerald's rendering speaks directly to the modern listener, inviting us to share the excitement, adventure, and human tears as Aeneas, the warrior hero, escapes from the burning city of Troy, embarks on a long and perilous journey, and eventually, triumphantly establishes a new nation: Rome.

About the Author

ROBERT FITZGERALD was Professor of Rhetoric and Oratory Emeritus at Harvard University, a member of the National Academy of Arts and Sciences, and a Chancellor of the Academy of American Poets. He also translated the Iliad and Odyssey.
