[Translated into English prose by W. F. Jackson Knight]

[Read by Frederick Davidson]

This enduring masterpiece tells of the epic quest of Aenas, who flees the ashes of Troy to found a new civilization: Rome. A unique hero, Aenas struggles and fights not for personal gain but for a civilization that will exist in the far future. Caught between passion and fate, his vision would change the course of the Western world.

Virgil, Rome's greatest poet, turned a mythical legend into a national epic that would survive Rome's collapse to become the most influential book Rome contributed to Western culture.

About the Author:

VIRGIL (70 -19 B.C), regarded as the greatest Roman poet, was born in a small village near Mantua in Northern Italy and attended school at Cremona, Milan, and Rome, where he studied mathematics, medicine, and rhetoric. He devoted his life, from 30 to 19 B.C., to the composition of The Aeneid, the national epic of Rome.

Review:

''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.'' --New Republic

''[A] sweeping epic filled with adventure and mythology, heroes and gods. There is a lot of material here for students of history, Greek and Roman mythology, ancient literature . . . [Davidson's] diction and pacing are quite good.'' --Kliatt
