Publisher's Summary

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.

the magic of Virgil!

Virgil's words flows like a river, it casts a spell on you. In many sections of this book, it's so difficult to stop reading! its continuity keeps you in the flow of each story, nonstop into heart!

such an amazing read, with an excellent narration!

Great story, but....

Loved the translation; loved the narrator. This is one of the best audio renditions of the poem I've heard. But for me, Aeneas remains a bit of a prig, and the poem subject to occasional digressions into sentimentality - something that is never true of Homer.

Enormously good.

This translation is very close to the original in tone and meaning, and of very high poetic quality. The language is accessible as well as beautiful.
