9780143105138: The Aeneid (Penguin Classics Deluxe Edition)

Robert Fagles's latest achievement completes the magnificent triptych of Western epics. A sweeping story of arms and heroism, The Aeneid follows the adventures of Aeneas, who flees the ashes of Troy to embark upon a tortuous course that brings him to Italy and fulfills his destiny as founder of the Roman people. Retaining all of the gravitas and humanity of the original, this powerful blend of poetry and myth remains as relevant today as when it was first written.

Review:

A new and noble standard bearer . . . Theres a capriciousness to Fagless line well suited to this vast storys ebb and flow.
"The New York Times Book Review" (front page review)
Fagless new version of Virgils epic delicately melds the stately rhythms of the original to a contemporary cadence. . . . He illuminates the poems Homeric echoes while remaining faithful to Virgils distinctive voice.
"The New Yorker"
Robert Fagles gives the full range of Virgils 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,"
