Summary

''The Aeneid tells the story of an epic voyage in which Aeneas crosses stormy seas, becomes entangled in a tragic love affair with Dido of Carthage, descends to the world of the dead - all the way tormented by the vengeful Juno, Queen of the Gods - and finally reaches Italy, where he will fulfill his destiny: to found the Roman people. A stirring tale of arms and heroism, dispossession and defeat, and an unsparing portrait of a man caught between love, duty, and fate, the Aeneid brings to life a whole world of human passion, nobility, and courage.'' ''Fagles's translation of the Aeneid retains all of the gravitas and humanity of the original as well as its powerful blend of poetry and myth. Featuring an introduction to Virgil's world from scholar Bernard Knox, this new Aeneid lends a contemporary voice to the literary achievement of the ancient world.''--BOOK JACKET.
