"The Fagles translation is destined to be the English "Aeneid" of the new century." -"The Wall Street Journal"
Robert Fagles's award-winning translations of Homer's "Iliad" and "Odyssey" have sold more than a million copies and become classics in their own right. With this modern verse translation of Virgil's "Aeneid," Fagles completes the classic triptych at the heart of Western civilization. Retaining all of the gravitas and humanity of the original, yet vibrant and contemporary, this seminal literary achievement of the ancient world is an unsparing portrait of a man caught between love, duty, and fate.
