Pharr's edition of the Aeneid saved me as a Latin student and is still an enjoyable read years later. I particularly appreciate the pop-out list of frequent words glued to the inside back cover of most editions. My only two frustrations (and they are very, very minor) are that the translations for tricky passages are given very liberally (I would prefer to see about half as many full-phrase translations) and that it can be frustrating, to have multiple glossaries (if one doesn't know the frequency of the word, one could end up looking in three separate places). However, these are minor issues: this book is a pleasure to read and works well when teaching a variety of ages (I've taught Pharr's edition in both middle school and high school and also used it as a student at university).

Vergil is the masters of imagery and writes one of the most incredible books of ancient history. The first book of the Aeneid starts from the beginning with the Trojan war. Vergil's image of the Trojan horse is one of his best. The Trojan horse is a true breach of the City walls by the Greeks in secrecy. Another one of Vergil's great images is in book IV. Fama- rumor, she moves very quickly and it is all evil as Vergil describes her. It is one of the most captivating books of ancient history from a very unique prespective.

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0865164215, Paperback)

This is the book that revolutionized Latin textbooks, with its student-friendly format of vocabulary and notes on the same page as the Latin text, and unique pull-out vocabulary of most-often repeated words. Together, these allow for faster reading, unimpeded by the page-turning required to look up vocabulary or consult notes. Pharr's Aeneid is the all-time most popular textbook of Vergil's Aeneid. Grammatical notes are supported by a full grammatical appendix; vocabulary memorization is aided by vocabulary lists, arranged by frequency of occurrence, for drilling. The perfect edtion for both classroom and home study.
