Comment: This book is in fairly good condition, with a gift inscription, but shows some signs of use. Pages are clean and unmarked, except a few have some notes in light pencil. Dust jacket has a stain. This is quite a nice copy.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Format: Hardcover
If found this an excellent presentation of Dryden's Aeneid. The text is supplemented with the corresponding pairs of line numbers, extensive footnotes for mythological references and Latinisms, and occasional commentary. There is also a lengthy introduction with plenty of information to situate the context of both Virgil and Dryden. My only complaint: the introduction to each book reads like very archaic English. I couldn't discern whether these were Dryden's own introductions, or the editor's attempt to maintain the tone of the translation.
