“Even from my first read, I thought the Aeneid was one of those classic works that read like an adventure novel.” Lisa

“Dryden’s translation of The Aeneid remains an unmatched achievement.” A. E Stallings, The American Scholar

“The “Aeneid” is suffused with a fascinating, upending sense that most of what goes gravely wrong on earth isn’t imputable to human agency. There’s something comforting to Virgil’s conception of humanity, in which relatively little malice and unreasonableness and rapacity seem innate to our kind. And there’s something unsettling as well — a vision of a world that would be safer and more secure if only the heavens were emptied.” Brad Leithauser NY Times

“The epic song of wars and men. If blood, guts and epic poetry are you thing, this book is for you.” Punning

THE AENEID is Virgil’s masterpiece in a specially produced edition with beautiful images which will take you right into the epic heart of Aeneas’s legendary journey and The Trojan War.
