Summaries and Reviews
An extensive glossary identifying the numerous historical and mythical allusions accompanies this verse translation of Virgil's spic story of the journey of Aeneas from the ruins of Troy to Italy, where he becomes the ultimate founder of the great city of Rome. Reissue. description: Product Description: Aeneas flees the ashes of Troy to found the city of Rome and change forever the course of the Western world--as literature as well.  Virgil's Aeneid is as eternal as Rome itself, a sweeping epic of arms and heroism--the searching portrait of a man caught between love and duty, human feeling and the force of fate--that has influenced writers for over 2,000 years.  Filled with drama, passion, and the universal pathos that only a masterpiece can express. The Aeneid is a book for all the time and all people.
