"A brilliant translation; the only one since Dryden which reads like English verse and conveys some of the majesty and pathos of the original."--Bernard M. W. Knox "Mandelbaum has . . . given us a contemporary experience of the masterpiece, at last."--David Ignatow "The book has a wonderful, detailed liveliness in every line."--Robert Fagles "Comes closer to the impossible goal of perfection than any of the numerous efforts that have poured out of American and British presses since World War II."--William S. Anderson

In Book I of the "Aeneid", Aeneas is shipwrecked on the coast of North Africa, near where the Phoenician queen Dido is building a city that will become Carthage. Aeneas and Dido meet. Their doomed love is set against Aeneas' destiny as founding father of Rome. Edited by Keith Maclennan, this volume makes Virgil's work more accessible to today's students, by setting it in its literary and historical context and taking account of the most recent scholarship and critical approaches to Virgil. The edition includes a full introduction which covers Virgil's life and writings, his literary predecessors, a summary of the epic poem's plot, an exploration of Rome, Carthage and Dido's role, explanation of the metre, and some notes on translating and reading the poem. As well as the introduction, the volume contains the original Latin text, in-depth annotation to explain language and content, a glossary and a comprehensive vocabulary list.

The Aeneidis Virgil's Masterpiece. His epic poem recounts the story of Rome's legendary origins from the ashes of Troy and proclaims her destiny of world dominion. This optimistic vision is accompanied by an undertow of sadness at the price that must be paid in human suffering to secure Rome's future greatness. The tension between the public voice of celebration and the tragic private voice is given full expression both in the doomed love of Dido and Aeneas, and in the fateful clash between the Trojan leader and the Italian hero, Turnus. Hailed by T.S. Eliot as 'the classic of all Europe', Virgil's Aeneidhas enjoyed a unique and enduring influence on European literature, art and politics for the past two thousand years.

(Book Jacket Status: Jacketed) 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.

Long a master of the crafts of Homeric translation and of rhapsodic performance, Stanley Lombardo now turns to the quintessential epic of Roman antiquity, a work with deep roots in the Homeric tradition. With characteristic virtuosity, he delivers a rendering of the Aeneid as compelling as his groundbreaking translations of the Iliad and the Odyssey, yet one that—like the Aeneid itself—conveys a unique epic sensibility and a haunting artistry all its own. W. R. Johnson's Introduction makes an ideal companion to the translation, offering brilliant insight into the legend of Aeneas; the contrasting roles of the gods, fate, and fortune in Homeric versus Virgilian epic; the character of Aeneas as both wanderer and warrior; Aeneas' relationship to both his enemy Turnus and his lover Dido; the theme of doomed youths in the epic; and Virgil's relationship to the brutal history of Rome that he memorializes in his poem. A map, a Glossary of Names, a Translator's Preface, and Suggestions for Further Reading are also included.
