Product Details

Praise

"Fitzgerald’s is so decisively the best modern Aeneid that it is unthinkable that anyone will want to use any other version for a long time to come."–New York Review of Books

"From the beginning to the end of this English poem…the reader will find the same sure control of English rhythms, the same deft phrasing, and an energy which urges the eye onward."–The New Republic

"A rendering that is both marvelously readable and scrupulously faithful…. Fitzgerald has managed, by a sensitive use of faintly archaic vocabulary and a keen ear for sound and rhythm, to suggest the solemnity and the movement of Virgil’s poetry as no previous translator has done (including Dryden)…. This is a sustained achievement of beauty and power."–Boston Globe
