    Dammit I'm including this and nobody can stop me I've spent subway rides chipping away at Book I over the past few months mostly so that I could justify reading Books II and IV next Not my first Aeneid rodeo and definitely not the best book of the Aeneid but there are still some lines that take your breath away Love the edition for its very clear and extensive notes and handy glossary

    Incredibly useful both for teachers and students of Vergil I obtained an original hardbound copy in some used book store ages ago pre internet era and freaked the moment I saw it What could be useful than a book that parses every single word of Aeneid Book 1 All sorts of curiosities delicious little tidbits of philological learning are sprinkled liberally throughoutVergil is notorious for his ambiguity; sometimes for example it is nearly impossible to pin down the nature of a particular ablative usage Means Manner Cause Separation Place where Comparison Price Often all can be ruled out except two then it's a coin toss This book helps to tackle that sort of problem and in some cases offers a detailed explanation of different possible ways of translation of the same constructionThe book contains the complete verses of Aeneid 1 with literal interlinear translation a prose translation and then the full breakdown of every detail of every word on the bottom 23 of each page A sine ua non

    Vergil is the supreme author in Latin To read him reuires a serious commitment and a lot of determination but the effort is well worth it His poetry is sensuously beautiful; every page is filled with vivid richly figurative language and strikingly poetic expressions that are unrivaled in their originality and power He is an author of immeasurable sophistication; his narrative genius is immediately apparent even to the most immature reader like me when I first encountered him in college Vergil took to an entirely new level the Latin language and all of the poetic and rhetorical resources that were available to him He is a kind of encyclopedia of many authors who preceded him plundering their work and refashioning it for his own ends Both Greek epic and tragedy as well as Ennius Lucretius and Catullus all reappear now and then in fascinating ways It is all here politics religion history mythology philosophy a tragic romance Dido brilliant portraits of natural scenery eg in the similes and Vergil is in many ways the standard against which all poets must be measured no matter who they are where they live or in what period they write After Homer he is the single greatest classical author and only students who are willing to learn the essentials of Latin grammar will be able to appreciate his linguistic magicThis book is a good place to start with Vergil It contains text notes and vocabulary I have occasionally lent it to students who are beginning to read him for the first time and they have all reported to me their happiness with the book It is a superb introductory text for first time readers of the Aeneid The notes are extremely helpful in unwinding complex sentences and especially in filling out elliptical expressions Vergil is very fond of dropping est and sunt from perfect passive indicative forms; likewise he often leaves out esse from the same infinitive form in indirect statement Little things like this freuently drive new readers crazy and the authors of this book are sensitive to the problem readers face and uick to offer help Perhaps best of all it provides a fair amount of translation aid without actually doing most of the translation for you Labor omnia vincit

    The Aeneid is a Latin epic poem It tells the story of Aeneas a Trojan who travelled to Italy after the Trojan War where he founded Rome and became the ancestor of the Romans Book I specifically introduces Aeneas and his nemesis the goddess Juno Virgil explains why Juno is angry at Aeneas and wants to kill him along his journey The book ends with Aeneas's arrival to Carthage unknowing of the divine beings influencing his journey and the people around himI personally enjoyed this book because I enjoy reading stories about adventures like Aeneas's The story is long and imaginative and allows me to really well picture what is happening throughout the story There are twelve books in the Aeneid and just this first one is lengthy and fascinating to the new reader and will definitely spark interest enough to read the next ones For those reading this book without knowledge of the Latin language an English translation will be reuired as it is written in Latin

    Not being a fan of long narrative poetry it took me two years to read this book but I'm glad I plodded through The epic tale was worth it Set after the fall of Troy and probably best read after The Iliad and The Odyssey The Aeneid follows the legendary journey of a band of surviving Trojans led by their heroic king Aeneas to find and settle in Italy a kingdom that is foretold to one day be the great city of Rome There is plenty of drama tragic love murder intrigue visits to the creepy underworld and grand battle scenes all intertwined with the soap opera that was Greco Roman mythology Everything that occurs is ordained by Fate and often manipulated one way or another by the constantly bickering gods and goddesses with their grudges and weird love affairs A great story and beautifully composed but Virgil could have been less long winded in parts
