Some brief overview of this book

Written by the Roman poet Virgil more than two thousand years ago, the story of Aeneas seven-year journey from the ruins of Troy to Italy, where he becomes the founding ancestor of Rome, is a narrative on an epic scale: Aeneas and his companions contend not only with human enemies but with the whim of the gods. His destiny preordained by Jupiter, Aeneas is nevertheless assailed by dangers invoked by the goddess Juno, and by the torments of love, loyalty, and despair. Virgils supreme achievement is not only to reveal Romes imperial future for his patron Augustus, but to invest it with both passion and suffering for all those caught up in the fates of others. Frederick Ahls new translation captures the excitement, poetic energy, and intellectual force of the original in a way that has never been done before. Echoing the Virgilian hexameter the verse stays almost line for line with the original in an accurate style.

A guide to reading The Aeneid with a critical and appreciative mind encouraging analysis of plot, style, form, and structure. Also includes background on the authors life, and times, sample tests, term paper suggestions, and a reading list.
