Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0809306409, Hardcover)

Exploring the metaphorical world of Vir­gil’s narrative, Hunt ranges throughout the poem viewing its part in relation to the structure of the whole as a unique aesthetic presentation. The result is pene­trating application of organistic formal­ism to the entirety of the Aeneid and a strengthening of the bond between classi­cal scholarship and contemporary criti­cism.
