The Aeneid

The Aeneid

Book - 1992
Rate this:

In dramatic and narrative power, Virgil's Aeneid is the equal of its great Homeric predecessors, The Iliad and The Odyssey . It surpasses them, however, in the intense sympathy it displays for its human actors-a sympathy that makes events such as Aeneas's escape from Troy and search for a new homeland, the passion and the death of Dido, the defeat of Turnus, and the founding of Rome among the most memorable in literature.

This celebrated translation by Robert Fitzgerald does full justice to the speed, clarity, and stately grandeur of the Roman Empire's most magnificent literary work of art.
