    There s something beautiful about Virgil, in which he portrayed his poems with the sympathy of a poet I really enjoyed his Eclogues and Georgics, and have come to the realization that his words are like a friend to me I highly recommend this edition of his work.

    I find it interesting that the last scene in this book is a murder It s arguable, of course, that Turnus deserves this sort of treatment but arguments along those lines call into question the theology of the book, in which every character is at least initially propelled into action along a predetermined path by the direct intervention of the Gods This would result in a book in which each person is to be held fully culpable for crimes committed under duress Then again, I suppose the ending I find it interesting that the last scene in this book is a murder It s arguable, of course, that Turnus deserves this sort of treatment but arguments along those lines call into question the theology of the book, in which every character is at least initially propelled into action along a predetermined path by the direct intervention of the Gods This would result in a book in which each person is to be held fully culpable for crimes committed under duress Then again, I suppose the ending of the book cancells that out, too Once the Gods have withdrawn from the conflict, Turnus is slain by a justifiably angry man for a series of crimes he was compelled to enact It s a sort of horrifically violent palate cleanser, and a nice little punchline to a rather long winded joke.The underworld scenes in Book VI are particularly good, and I think Virgil does a better job than Homer of making the endless battle scenesengaging The brevity of the book in comparison with its models narrows the scope of the story a bit, but does allow for a well structured story told at a cracking pace The gradual coalescence of the story over the first six books is marvellous, and Virgil does a good job of rearranging scenes from the Odyssey to disguise his lack of ideas The second half, however, is arguably even better at least, I found itengaging than the actual Iliad

    Es el tipo de literatura que me gusta, la interacci n entre dioses y mortales siempre ha captado mi atenci n y la Eneida adem s de que existe esa interpelaci n llega a un final feliz deseable para los fines que fue escrito en donde se perpet a la existencia de los troyanos.

    As with all the Loeb series, this fulfills the important need to have the original text at hand when one is reading a translation.However, the division of the two volumes is a bit irritating the Aeneid is divided between the two volumes, which doesn t just double the cost, but makes turning back and forth in the Aeneid to consult an earlier or later passage rather unwieldy It would be nice to have the Aeneid in one volume, with the Eclogues and Georgics in the other, along with the Appendix Ve As with all the Loeb series, this fulfills the important need to have the original text at hand when one is reading a translation.However, the division of the two volumes is a bit irritating the Aeneid is divided between the two volumes, which doesn t just double the cost, but makes turning back and forth in the Aeneid to consult an earlier or later passage rather unwieldy It would be nice to have the Aeneid in one volume, with the Eclogues and Georgics in the other, along with the Appendix Vergiliana if that is desired I suspect, however, that the latter volume would sell very few copies, and I can t fault Harvard Press as a business if they divided the volumes as they did for exactly that reason The translation itself is fine, as far as translations go and considering that it is prose, trying to give the meaning of the text without pretensions to being English literature as well, and the brief and occasional notes are minimal but helpful.For now, a necessary pair of volumes if one wants to compare the English to the original
