About the Author

Virgil (70 BCE-19 BCE) is considered one of Rome's greatest poets. He is best known for three major works: the Eclogues (or Bucolics), the Georgics, and the Aeneid, although several minor poems are also attributed to him. Michael Page has been recording audiobooks since 1984 and has over two hundred titles to his credit. He has won several AudioFile Earphones Awards, including for The War That Killed Achilles by Caroline Alexander and The Lies of Locke Lamora by Scott Lynch. As a professional actor, Michael has performed regularly since 1998 with the Peterborough Players in Peterborough, New Hampshire. He is currently a professor of theater at Calvin College in Grand Rapids, Michigan, where he lives with his wife, Jane, and two daughters, Camilla and Chloe (when they are not away at college). He has a particular interest in Shakespeare and Eastern European theater and travels frequently to Hungary and Romania. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Review

aA new and noble standard bearer . . . Thereas a capriciousness to Faglesas line well suited to this vast storyas ebb and flow.a a"The New York Times Book Review" (front page review) aFaglesas new version of Virgilas epic delicately melds the stately rhythms of the original to a contemporary cadence. . . . He illuminates the poemas Homeric echoes while remaining faithful to Virgilas distinctive voice.a a"The New Yorker" aRobert Fagles gives the full range of Virgilas drama, grandeur, and pathos in vigorous, supple modern English. It is fitting that one of the great translators of "The Iliad" and "The Odyssey" in our times should also emerge as a surpassing translator of "The Aeneid,"a aJ. M. Coetzee --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

Publius Vergilius Maro (Classical Latin: [ˈpuː.blɪ.ʊs wɛrˈɡɪ.lɪ.ʊs ˈma.roː]; October 15, 70 BC – September 21, 19 BC), usually called Virgil or Vergil /ˈvɜːrdʒᵻl/ in English, was an ancient Roman poet of the Augustan period. He is known for three major works of Latin literature, the Eclogues (or Bucolics), the Georgics, and the epic Aeneid. A number of minor poems, collected in the Appendix Vergiliana, are sometimes attributed to him.

Virgil is traditionally ranked as one of Rome's greatest poets. His Aeneid has been considered the national epic of ancient Rome from the time of its composition to the present day. Modeled after Homer's Iliad and Odyssey, the Aeneid follows the Trojan refugee Aeneas as he struggles to fulfill his destiny and arrive on the shores of Italy—in Roman mythology the founding act of Rome. Virgil's work has had wide and deep influence on Western literature, most notably Dante's Divine Comedy, in which Virgil appears as Dante's guide through hell and purgatory.
