About this Item

"The aim of this book is to help all who approach the poem seriously {in Latin of in English} to read it with discerning appreciation. This is not a handbook, nor is it a commentary: it is a critical description, from a number of aspects, of a poetic structure. A detailed analysis of the twelve books is preceded by a preliminary exploration of the poem's central purpose, a careful reconstruction of the historical and artistic circumstances, and a description of the main outlines of the poem's structure; two further chapters provide a discussion of a number of theoretical problems {in particular the theory of the 'exploitation of form'} and an analysis of the verbal fabric." This book has 448 pages. The text contains NO internal marks whatsoever. Bookseller Inventory # 043549
