Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“I sing of arms and the man...”

So begins the ageless epic of Aeneas and his men, who are seemingly destined to wander the ancient world endlessly, the playthings of wrathful gods. Fleeing the ruins of Troy, Aeneas must fight his battles with little notion that Jupiter has ordained that the Trojan champion shall promulgate a race that will be the forebears of Rome.

@TranslatioStud Got a gift of a huge wooden horse today, here in Troy. Just appeared outside the city gate. BTW: War going poorly.

Surprise. Soldiers inside the horse. We didn’t start the fire! Hector’s Ghost says to GTFO – take Dad and the kid with me.

I’m on a boat. Three generations of Aenean men on a sea-journey of epic proportions. Hmm. Sounds familiar…

A sweeping story of arms and heroism, "The Aeneid" is a timeless epic of the Roman Empire's grand originals--one of the towering works of Western civilization. This translation includes a new Introduction and features a bold new package. Revised reissue.

About the Author

Virgil, born in 70 B.C., is best remembered for his masterpiece, The Aeneid. He earned great favor by portraying Augustus as a descendant of the half-god, half-man Aeneas. Although Virgil swore on his deathbed that The Aeneid was incomplete and unworthy, it has been considered one of the greatest works of Western literature for more than two thousand years.
