In this new translation Edward McCrorie has performed the difficult task of rendering Virgil's compact, dense Latin into fine, readable, modern English verse. The sometimes complex text is made clear and comprehensible even for first-time readers, and a glossary of names helps identify characters and place-names in the poem. The translation is well suited for students at all levels, and readers already familiar with Virgil will find many fresh images and ideas. -Robert Bly "I admire the ambition of the project, and the generosity of many of the lines.

Translated by Edward McCrorie, With a foreword by Vincent Cleary. It is a delight to note the appearance of a splendid new translation of Virgil's Aeneid by Edward McCrorie. a vigorous and intelligent rendering of Virgil's epic in modern idiom. A bold new translation of the Aeneid. the rendering of Aeneas' encouraging words to his men is realistic and vigorous, and the passage is not reduced to a set of famous Virgilian one-liners. The net effect of this style of translation is to maintain the narrative pace of Virgil's excellent story while preserving ambiguities that are often lost when Virgil is translated as a source for quotable quotes.
