The Aeneid of Virgil: A Verse Translation By Rolfe Humphries

Aeneas flees the ashes of Troy to found the city of Rome and change forever the course of the Western world--as literature as well. Virgil's "Aeneid" is as eternal as Rome itself, a sweeping epic of arms and heroism--the searching portrait of a man caught between love and duty, human feeling and the force of fate--that has influenced writers for over 2,000 years. Filled with drama, passion, and the universal pathos that only a masterpiece can express. "The Aeneid" is a book for all the time and all people.

"Allen Mandelbaum has produced a living "Aeneid," a version that is unmistakably poetry." -- Erich Segal, "The New York Times Book Review"

"A brilliant translation; the only one since Dryden which reads like English verse and conveys some of the majesty and pathos of the original." -- Bernard M. W. Knox

"Mandelbaum has... given us a contemporary experience of the masterpiece, at last." -- David Ignatow
