The Aeneid - thrilling, terrifying and poignant in equal measure - has inspired centuries of artists, writers and musicians.

Part of the Macmillan Collector's Library; a series of stunning, clothbound, pocket sized classics with gold foiled edges and ribbon markers. These beautiful books make perfect gifts or a treat for any book lover. This edition is translated by J. W. Mackail and has an afterword by Coco Stevenson.

Virgil's epic tale tells the story of Aeneas, a Trojan hero, who flees his city after its fall, with his father Anchises and his young son Ascanius - for Aeneas is destined to found Rome and father the Roman race. As Aeneas journeys closer to his goal, he must first prove his worth and attain the maturity necessary for such an illustrious task. He battles raging storms in the Mediterranean, encounters the fearsome Cyclopes, falls in love with Dido, Queen of Carthage, travels into the Underworld and wages war in Italy.

“Great classic with helpful notes”

I thought that the book was interesting but hard going in parts, if you are learning Latin it is esential reading and the explanatory notes are especially well written and very detailed.

“Good translation”

This translation is very good indeed, it gives the line numbers so one can relate the passage to where in the book (chapter to us) the lines come from. It is also useful to have these numbers when writing a criticism... More

“Easy Reading”

When compared to the works of Homer this tale feels like a homage to it. With the similarities to the Grecian gods and the style of the tale, you feel as if Homer had scribed another tale.

And yet this translation... More
