Synopsis:
From the award-winning translator of The Iliad and The Odyssey comes a brilliant new translation of Virgil's great epic

Fleeing the ashes of Troy, Aeneas, Achilles’ mighty foe in the Iliad, begins an incredible journey to fulfill his destiny as the founder of Rome. His voyage will take him through stormy seas, entangle him in a tragic love affair, and lure him into the world of the dead itself--all the way tormented by the vengeful Juno, Queen of the Gods. Ultimately, he reaches the promised land of Italy where, after bloody battles and with high hopes, he founds what will become the Roman empire. An unsparing portrait of a man caught between love, duty, and fate, the Aeneid redefines passion, nobility, and courage for our times. Robert Fagles, whose acclaimed translations of Homer’s Iliad and Odyssey were welcomed as major publishing events, brings the Aeneid to a new generation of readers, retaining all of the gravitas and humanity of the original Latin as well as its powerful blend of poetry and myth. Featuring an illuminating introduction to Virgil’s world by esteemed scholar Bernard Knox, this volume lends a vibrant new voice to one of the seminal literary achievements of the ancient world.

For more than sixty-five years, Penguin has been the leading publisher of classic literature in the English-speaking world. With more than 1,500 titles, Penguin Classics represents a global bookshelf of the best works throughout history and across genres and disciplines. Readers trust the series to provide authoritative texts enhanced by introductions and notes by distinguished scholars and contemporary authors, as well as up-to-date translations by award-winning translators.

Review:
Praise for Robert Fagles’s translation of the Odyssey:
"Wonderfully readable . . . just the right blend of sophistication and roughness, it seems to me."
—Ted Hughes

"A memorable achievement . . . Mr. Fagles has been remarkably successful in finding a style that is of our time and yet timeless."
—Richard Jenkyns, The New York Times Book Review

"Remarkably seductive . . . In Fagles’s hands, this ‘perennial poem of adventure’ is again a work of entertainment, of majesty and epic beauty great enough to stun the senses."
The Philadelphia Inquirer

Theres a capriciousness to Fagless line well suited to this vast storys ebb and flow. "The New York Times Book Review" (front page review) Fagless new version of Virgils epic delicately melds the stately rhythms of the original to a contemporary cadence. . . . He illuminates the poems Homeric echoes while remaining faithful to Virgils distinctive voice. "The New Yorker" Robert Fagles gives the full range of Virgils drama, grandeur, and pathos in vigorous, supple modern English. It is fitting that one of the great translators of "The Iliad" and "The Odyssey" in our times should also emerge as a surpassing translator of "The Aeneid," J. M. Coetzee.
