Review:

aA new and noble standard bearer . . . Thereas a capriciousness to Faglesas line well suited to this vast storyas ebb and flow.a a"The New York Times Book Review" (front page review) aFaglesas new version of Virgilas epic delicately melds the stately rhythms of the original to a contemporary cadence. . . . He illuminates the poemas Homeric echoes while remaining faithful to Virgilas distinctive voice.a a"The New Yorker" aRobert Fagles gives the full range of Virgilas drama, grandeur, and pathos in vigorous, supple modern English. It is fitting that one of the great translators of "The Iliad" and "The Odyssey" in our times should also emerge as a surpassing translator of "The Aeneid,"a aJ. M. Coetzee

About the Author:

Publius Vergilius Maro is one of the greatest poets of all time. He was a Roman, born in Andes near Mantua, who studied rhetoric and philosophy in Rome before becoming one of the endowed court poets. Virgil is most renowned for the Aeneid, which took the last 11 years of his life to write.
