    One thought on “Virgil, Vol 2: Aeneid Books 7-12, Appendix Vergiliana”

    1. How whiny can one grown many be Read this to find out I have no empathy for the main character and frankly his treatment of Dido should earn him scorn forever if he had not already earned it by being a whiny loser Nothing wrong is ever his fault, and he is frankly ungrateful to those who help him.

    2. I like this edition because it s two volumes and therefore portable and the notes are helpful and concise The OCT is nicer but it is good to have some decent notes occasionally.
