9780140445510: The Aeneid (Classics)

The supreme Roman epic and the greatest poem in Latin, the Aeneid has inspired many of the great European poets including Dante and Milton. The Trojan hero Aeneas, after surviving the sack of Troy, makes his way to the West, urged on by benevolent deities and following a destiny laid down by Jupiter, but harassed and impeded by the goddess Juno. He wins his way to Italy despite many trials, of which the greatest is the tragic outcome of his love affair with Dido, Queen of Carthage. In Italy Aeneas visits the world of the dead, and is forced to wage a fearful war with the indigenous Italian tribes before he can found his city and open the history of Rome. The Aeneid survives as a poem not only of Roman imperialism but also of the whole world of human passion, duty and suffering.

About the Author:

Virgil was an ancient Roman poet, the author of the Eclogues, the Georgics and the Aeneid, the last being an epic poem of twelve books that became the Roman Empire's national epic.

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
