This poem is the story of the hero Aeneas as he flees from Troy, and after many ordeals and suffering carves out a foothold for the future Romans in Italy. While defining and celebrating what it meant to be Roman, it confronts, with a bleak pathos, the tragedy involved in the destiny of Rome.

“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
