About the book:

Patrick Romane
Here the excitement, adventure, romance and glory of Vergil's classic emerge from a vigorous style and evocative prose.

Book Description
One of the pillars of Western literary tradition, Vergil s Aeneid is also a terrific read: the story of a man whose city is destroyed in war, and of his journey to find his place in destiny. This epic has it all: adventures on the high seas, passion, battles, monsters, magic, meddling gods, and struggles that test the moral fiber of both men and women. The Aeneid has been deemed one of the most influential poems in world literature. And yet, a translation with wide appeal has been lacking until now. G. B. Cobbold joined with Bolchazy-Carducci Publishers to produce an Aeneid that gives the epic its due as the rousing and moving story that it is, while remaining true to the spirit of the Latin original. This an Aeneid like no other: a fresh, page-turning rendition that reads like a novel, but has the vividness of poetic language, with attractive and accessible reader aids. Sure to become a prized standard!
