Vergil's Aeneid: Hero, War, Humanity

Synopsis

One of the pillars of the Western literary tradition, Vergil's Aeneid has it all: adventures on the high seas, battles, passion, monsters, magic, and struggles that test the mettle of both man and woman. G. B. Cobbold joined with Bolchazy-Carducci Publishers to produce the Aeneid as the grand and rousing story that it is. Cobbold's command of Latin and commitment to a strong narrative line have produced an Aeneid like no other: a fresh and page-turning rendition that reads like an epic novel, with engaging and helpful reader aids. Features: Introduction to the Aeneid and Vergil Vivid novelistic rendition with marginal summaries and 92 dynamic in-text original illustrations by Thom Kapheim Map of Aeneas' voyage Glossary of characters Family trees of main characters and gods Book-by-book outline of the plot Timeline of significant events in Roman history Questions for reflection and discussion.
