Virgil, the dominant figure in all Latin literature, has inspired and influenced poets for two millennia. In this book, David R. Slavitt, himself a poet as well as a novelist and critic, evaluates Virgil's achieivement for the modern reader. His appraisal brings a poet's sensitivity not only to the meaning and the play of language and image in the works but also to the pressures virgil faced in his literary production - the sometimes arbitrary requirements of his audience and patrons.
