Publisher's Summary

Robert Fitzgerald's magnificent translation of Virgil's epic poem was a major literary event at its release in 1983; today it is an acknowledged masterpiece. Profoundly poetic yet gloriously accessible, this is the best way to experience a work that has remained a centerpiece of Western civilization for 2,000 years. Fitzgerald's rendering speaks directly to the modern listener, inviting us to share the excitement, adventure, and human tears as Aeneas, the warrior hero, escapes from the burning city of Troy, embarks on a long and perilous journey, and eventually, triumphantly establishes a new nation: Rome.

Critic Reviews

"Fitzgerald's is so decisively the best modern Aeneid that it is unthinkable that anyone will want to use any other version for a long time to come." ( The New York Review of Books)

Not complete

This version is incomplete and the chapter divisions are off. Chapter 3 was missing completely and it is almost impossible to find chapter breaks. Not happy!

Great but chapters don't match

I have the Fitzgerald published by Vintage Classics. And it has 12 chapters. The audiobook has only 9. Hard to follow the book like this.
