    One thought on “Aeneid: Books I-VI”

    1. Come on a huge horse parked outside your battlements and you re not in the least suspicious This is supposed to be the cradle of Western civilization

    2. I used this text as an undergraduate in an intermediate Latin class 35 years ago I fondly recall how reading the Aeneid in Latin for the first time was a completely transformative experience Before my encounter with Vergil, I had no idea that literature could possibly be so incredibly beautiful and moving His diction, rhythm, narrative genius and virtuoso command of the language struck me like a bolt of lightning Suddenly, I emerged from an abyss of darkness and entered a new world illuminated b [...]

    3. This was actually the copy I think I had in high school One of the best classes I have ever taken, thanks to my Latin teacher, who was practically immortal and unfathomably wise I wish I could still read Latin, because The Aeneid in Latin is like Anna Karenina there s so much there, it would take than a lifetime to get everything out of it that was possible to get The part with Dido breaks my heart, especially about how they fondled through the winter, forgetful of their kingdoms I know you lik [...]

    4. I translated most of chapter 4 6 in Latin 300 at the University I love this book so much It inspired me to pursue Classics for a time and it continues to shape the way I look at the world.

    5. I read this book in Latin And I must say Virgil is a writer I really like reading during Latin classes It s written in a beautiful metrum, with lots of figures of speech and a wonderfull story At the moment I am reading the odysee and it is fun to see that Virgil tot inspired by Homer.

    6. This was the first full books I ever translated myself and read entirely in another language It really expanded my idea of poetry because it is an epic poem, as well as an extremely old text, and an amazing plot One of my favorite things that I learned from reading this poem so indepth was how to arrange words Latin sentences have very few order requirements so authors are able to amazing things with sentence structure, and Virgil is a master One of my favorite scenes is when he describes a stor [...]

    7. I love this Latin epic Perhaps not as popular as The Odyssey or The Iliad, it is every bit as great Aeneas adventures are just tremendous as, like Orpheus, he even descends into Hell Dido is one of the great classical heroines, and the battles sea journeys are amazing A tale of the founding of Rome like no other

    8. Skipped around and translated a bit for Latin.It s what you can expect of a classic moving lines, connections to many other classics, etc This one sat really well with me because of the depth with which Vergil explores Aeneas s story arc as a diasporic survivor who will later beget a race of imperialists Aeneas Dido was, predictably, breathtaking and heartrending.

    9. This book is in Latin I translated most of it in high school Although my Latin skills were pathetic to say the best it was still a treat to be able to read it as much as possible in the original Latin.

    10. I m down with any story that starts in in medias res Starts with the sacking of Troy and ends with the founding of Rome.

    11. Of course the poem itself is very famous and well worth reading, but since I have already marked the Aeneid as read and rated it, here I am responding to this particular edition.The layout is very useful it does not give away quite as much as a Loeb since there is no English for your eyes to flick to , so you have to work out the most difficult parts by yourself although the editor sometimes gives you the meaning or rearranges the words in the notes , the vocabulary and translation advice is at [...]

    12. This is a superb and easy to read translation of the first six books of Virgil s Aeneid with vivid prose and descriptive text that takes the reader with Aeneas as he leaves Troy and travels to Italy Virgil captures the essence of the story although the work does get a little wordy and complicated in places, which I found did detract from the story a little, although it is still rather readable, especially compared to other works of the time.

    13. not a big virgil fan, but this edition is so great for beginners with good notes, fold out glossary of common vocab to work hard on, and not so common vocab is right on the page closest you can get to somewhat normal reading pace as a beginner, with minimum flipping around, or worse having to go to other dictionary grammar book.

    14. Although it babies the reader througout, this commentary is excellent for AP or second third year college students The Focus individual author series is in depth for graduate studies AP teachers.

    15. Great edition of Vergil for a high school Latin student Abundant vocabulary help and good grammatical notes The Aeneid itself is a masterwork of course and worth a full read in its entirety I would not bother with it in translation though.

    16. The Aeneid is a Latin epic poem, written by Virgil between 29 and 19 BC, that tells the legendary story of Aeneas, a Trojan who travelled to Italy, where he became the ancestor of the Romans It is composed of 9,896 lines in dactylic hexameter.

    17. Clyde is an essential memory of my early years of Latin I still have him fondly on my shelves and wouldn t give him up for the world For an introductory commentary helper s guide to Vergil s Aeneid, Clyde is second to none.

    18. Latin edition with robust apparatus vocab, grammar, etc for those not fluent in the language I m using this text to translate bits of the work into English in my Latin learning endeavors.
