Vergil's Aeneid has been considered a classic, if not the classic, of Western literature for two thousand years. In recent decades this famous poem has become the subject of fresh and searching controversy. What is the poem's fundamental meaning? Does it endorse or undermine values of empire and patriarchy? Is its world view comic or tragic? Many studies of the poem have focused primarily on selected books. The approach here is comprehensive. An introduction by editor Christine Perkell discusses the poem's historical background, its reception from antiquity to the present, and its most important themes. The book-by-book readings that follow both explicate the text and offer a variety of interpretations. Concluding topic chapters focus on the Aeneid as foundation story, the influence of Apollonius' Argonautica, the poem's female figures, and English translations of the Aeneid. Written in an accessible style and providing translations of all Latin passages, this volume will be of particular value to teachers and students of humanities courses as well as to specialists.

This 2004 guide gives a full account of the historical setting and significance of Virgil's epic, and discusses the poet's use of Homer's Iliad and Odyssey, as well as the most celebrated episodes in the poem, including the tragedy of Dido and Aeneas' visit to the underworld. The volume examines Virgil's psychological and philosophical insights, and explains the poem's status as the central classic of European culture. The final chapter considers the Aeneid's influence on later writers including Dante and the Romantics. The guide to further reading has been updated and will prove to be an invaluable resource to students coming to The Aeneid for the first time.

"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.

Relating the legendary tale of Aeneas, The Aeneid, written in 1st century B.C, by Virgil, is a great Latin epic poem. Relating the story of a Trojan who wanders to Italy and from whom the Romans are descended; the work presents two themes in general. The first is related to the wanderings while the second centres on a war that took place between the Trojans and the Latins. Although the work remains incomplete, it is seen by critics as a comment on the vengeful nature of human kind.
