The Aeneid (Penguin Classics) by Virgil

(Book Jacket Status: Jacketed) In dramatic and narrative power, Virgils Aeneid is the equal of its great Homeric predecessors, The Iliad and The Odyssey. It surpasses them, however, in the intense sympathy it displays for its human actors-a sympathy that makes events such as Aeneass escape from Troy and search for a new homeland, the passion and the death of Dido, the defeat of Turnus, and the founding of Rome among the most memorable in literature. This celebrated translation by Robert Fitzgerald does full justice to the speed, clarity, and stately grandeur of the Roman Empires most magnificent literary work of art.
