About the book:

Long a master of the crafts of Homeric translation and of rhapsodic performance, Stanley Lombardo now turns to the quintessential epic of Roman antiquity, a work with deep roots in the Homeric tradition. With characteristic virtuosity, he delivers a rendering of the Aeneid as compelling as his groundbreaking translations of the Iliad and the Odyssey, yet one that√¬like the Aeneid itself√¬conveys a unique epic sensibility and a haunting artistry all its own.

W. R. Johnson√¬s Introduction makes an ideal companion to the translation, offering brilliant insight into the legend of Aeneas; the contrasting roles of the gods, fate, and fortune in Homeric versus Virgilian epic; the character of Aeneas as both wanderer and warrior; Aeneas√¬ relationship to both his enemy Turnus and his lover Dido; the theme of doomed youths in the epic; and Virgil√¬s relationship to the brutal history of Rome that he memorializes in his poem.

A map, a Glossary of Names, a Translator√¬s Preface, and Suggestions for Further Reading are also included.
