He will go on to change the history of the world ...The "Aeneid" tells the story of an epic seven year journey that sees Aeneas cross stormy seas, become entangled in a tragic love affair with Dido of Carthage, visit the world of the dead - all the way tormented by the vengeful Juno, Queen of the Gods - and finally reach Italy, where he will fulfil his destiny: to found the Roman people. A sweeping epic of arms and heroism, dispossession and defeat, and a searching portrait of a man caught between love, duty and fate, The "Aeneid" brings to life a whole human world of passion, nobility and courage. This is the much-anticipated new version of Virgil's epic poem from the translator of the "Odyssey" and the "Iliad". With this stunning modern verse translation Robert Fagles reintroduces the "Aeneid" to a whole new generation, and completes the classical triptych at the heart of Western civilization. It retains all of the gravitas and humanity of the original, as well as its powerful blend of poetry and myth. With an illuminating introduction to Virgil's world from noted scholar Bernard Knox, this new "Aeneid" gives a vibrant, contemporary voice to the literary achievement of the ancient world.Hide synopsis

Description:New. The is a Latin epic poem, written by Virgil from 29 to 19...New. The is a Latin epic poem, written by Virgil from 29 to 19 BC, that tells the legendary story of Aeneas, a Trojan who travelled to Italy, where he became the ancestor of the Romans. The first six of the poem's twelve books tell the story of Aeneas's wanderings from Troy to Italy. The second half tells of the Trojans' ultimately victorious war upon the Latins. The hero Aeneas was already known to Greco-Roman legend and myth, having been a character in the Iliad; Virgil took the disconnected tales of Aeneas' wanderings and fashioned them into a founding myth that at once tied Rome to the legends of Troy and gods of Rome and Troy. Virgil's great epic transforms the Homeric tradition into a triumphal statement of the Roman civilizing mission.
I tried contacting this seller many times about the delay in shipping my book, and they never responded. Eventually the item came, late, but was in good shape. Don't expect communication from these people.
