Excerpt

First and foremost the editors would like to thank the contributors to this collection for the enthusiasm that they have brought to the project and for the breadth of interest that has allowed it to offer a wide-ranging prospect over Vergil and his heritage. Alfred Bertrand of Wiley-Blackwell originally proposed a volume on the Aeneid- and its tradition for its Companion series, and his support has continued from the start. Among his helpful colleagues have been Sophie Gibson, Haze Humbert, and Galen Smith, all readily available when assistance was needed. Special thanks to Brigitte Lee Messenger for her expert copy-editing and for her prompt and friendly attention to all queries sent her way. The editors would like also to acknowledge help freely offered by colleagues and staff in their respective departments at Brown University and the University of Pennsylvania. In particular we thank Carrie Mowbray of Penn for the care with which she has organized the bibliography as well as brought order and cohesion to the many practical details that adhere to such a varied enterprise. Additional thanks to Kelcy Sagstetter, Kevin Platt, and Ilya Vinitsky for their timely assistance with matters Slavic and Cyrillic. Finally, a word of gratitude to the libraries, museums, and publishing houses that supplied illustrative material, and granted reprint permissions. Their individual contributions are listed elsewhere.
