Description
Considered the greatest Roman poet, Vergil spent over a decade working on this monumental epic poem, which has been a source of literary inspiration and poetic grandeur for more than 2,000 years. Its twelve books tell the heroic story of Aeneas, a Trojan who escaped the burning ruins of Troy to found a new city in the west. This city, Lavinium, was the parent city of Rome. Drawn by divine destiny after the fall of Troy, Aeneas sailed westward toward the land of the Tiber. After many adventures, he and his men were shipwrecked on the shores of Carthage, where Aeneas and Queen Dido fell in love. Reminded of his duty, however, Aeneas sailed on. After visiting his father in the underworld, Aeneas saw the future of the Roman people and their exploits in peace and war. Eventually he arrived in Italy, where he and his men struggled valiantly to secure a foothold for the founding of Rome. Vast in scope, crowded with exciting adventure and heroic deeds, the Aeneid was Vergil's imagined account of Roman beginnings and a tribute to the history, character and achievements of the Roman people. On the other hand, its depth, vision and empathy with human suffering make the poem relevant to the general human condition. Now this enduring multileveled masterpiece is available in this republication of a standard unabridged translation, the most inexpensive complete version available.

After a century of civil strife in Rome and Italy, the poet Virgil wrote The Aeneid to honor the emperor Augustus by praising Aeneas, Augustus's legendary ancestor. As a patriotic epic imitating Homer, The Aeneid also set out to provide Rome with a literature equal to that of Greece. It tells of Aeneas, survivor of the sack of Troy, and of his seven-year journey: to Carthage, where he fell tragically in love with Queen Dido; to the underworld, in the company of the Sibyl of Cumae; and, finally, to Italy, where he founded Rome. It is a story of defeat and exile, and of love and war.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. 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. This version of The Aeneid is the classic translation by John Dryden.

At a banquet given in honour of the Trojans, Aeneas recounts the events that occasioned the Trojans' arrival. He begins the tale shortly after the war described in the Iliad: Crafty Ulysses devised a way for Greek warriors to gain entry into Troy by hiding in a large wooden horse., The masterpiece of Rome's greatest poet, Virgil's Aeneid has inspired generations of readers and holds a central place in Western literature. The epic tells the story of a group of refugees from the ruined city of Troy, whose attempts to reach a promised land in the West are continually frustrated by the hostile goddess Juno. Finally reaching Italy, their leader Aeneas is forced to fight a bitter war against the natives to establish the foundations from which Rome is destined to rise. This magnificent poem, in the modern translation by Cecil Day Lewis, is superbly read by David Collins., This classical epic poem tells of the Trojan warrior Aeneas. Departing from Troy after its fall, Aeneas makes a perilous journey towards modern-day Italy. In Italy, he plays a major part in the founding of Rome. As he endures the military and social challenges related to the founding of this great city, Aeneas fights not for himself, but rather for the selfless cause of founding an enduring and influential metropolis., This enduring masterpiece tells of the epic quest of Aeneas, who flees the ashes of Troy to found a new civilization: Rome. A unique hero, Aeneas struggles and fights not for personal gain but for a civilization that will exist far into the future. Caught between passion and fate, his vision would change the course of the Western world. Virgil, Rome's greatest poet, turned a mythical legend into a national epic that would survive Rome's collapse to become the most influential book Rome contributed to Western culture., Unabridged., Virgil,author., Virgil., [United States]:Blackstone Audio, Inc. ,2011., [United States]:Dover Publications ,2012., [United States]:HighBridge, a division of Recorded Books ,1995., [United States]:Interactive Media ,2014., [United States]:Lerner Publishing Group ,2015., [United States]:Naxos ,2002., [United States]:Naxos ,2015., [United States]:Start Publishing LLC ,2013., [United States]:Tantor Audio ,2010., [United States]:Wilder Publications, Inc. ,2015., computerc, data file, digital, e------aw-----ff-----, eAudiobook hoopla, eBook hoopla, eng, hoopla digital., https://d2snwnmzyr8jue.cloudfront.net/bsa_9781433256097_180.jpeg, https://d2snwnmzyr8jue.cloudfront.net/csp_9780486113975_180.jpeg, https://d2snwnmzyr8jue.cloudfront.net/csp_9781633842984_180.jpeg, https://d2snwnmzyr8jue.cloudfront.net/iam_9781910343425_180.jpeg, https://d2snwnmzyr8jue.cloudfront.net/lpg_9781467787291_180.jpeg, https://d2snwnmzyr8jue.cloudfront.net/nax_9781843798873_180.jpeg, https://d2snwnmzyr8jue.cloudfront.net/nax_9789629546748_180.jpeg, https://d2snwnmzyr8jue.cloudfront.net/rcb_9781615730858_180.jpeg, https://d2snwnmzyr8jue.cloudfront.net/sta_9781625586612_180.jpeg, https://d2snwnmzyr8jue.cloudfront.net/ttm_9781400196005_180.jpeg, online resourcecr, spoken wordspw, text file, texttxt
