Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0679729526, Paperback)Arma virumque cano: "I sing of warfare and a man at war." Long the bane of second-year Latin students thrust into a rhetoric of sweeping, seemingly endless sentences full of difficult verb forms and obscure words, Virgil's Aeneid finds a helpful translator in Robert Fitzgerald, who turns the lines into beautiful, accessible American English. Full of betrayal, heartache, seduction, elation, and violence, the Aeneid is the great founding epic of the Roman empire. Its pages sing of the Roman vision of self, the Roman ideal of what it meant to be a citizen of the world's greatest power. The epic's force carries across the centuries, and remains essential reading.

Aeneas flees the ashes of Troy to found the city of Rome and change forever the course of the Western world, and literature as well. Virgil's Aeneid is as eternal as Rome itself, a sweeping epic of arms and heroism.
