Summary (From the publisher):

Fleeing the ruins of fallen Troy, Aeneas and his followers seem destined to wander the ancient world endlessly. Unbeknownst to them, Jupiter has ordained that the Trojan champion shall promulgate a race that will be the forebears of Rome. But first he must survive epic battles, the wrath of the gods, and a star-crossed romance with Dido, Queen of Carthage.

Edition #1: The Aeneid

The Aeneid (2008)
Edition Details (From the publisher):

Sarah Ruden, a lyric poet in her own right, is the first woman to translate Vergil’s great epic, and she renders the poem in the same number of lines as the original work—a very rare feat that maintains technical fidelity to the original without diminishing its emotional power.


Ruden’s translation follows Vergil’s content faithfully, and the economy and fast pace she achieves are true to his own unflagging narrative force. With its central theme of national destiny versus. the destiny of individuals, the poem has great resonance in our own times, and Ruden adheres closely to the poet’s message. Her rendering of Vergil’s words gives immediacy to his struggling faith that history has beauty and purpose in spite of its pain.

Edition #4: Aeneid

Aeneid (2005)
Edition Details (From the publisher):

Long a master of the crafts of Homeric translation and of rhapsodic performance, Stanley Lombardo now turns to the quintessential epic of Roman antiquity, a work with deep roots in the Homeric tradition. With characteristic virtuosity, he delivers a rendering of the Aeneid...that—like the Aeneid itself—conveys a unique epic sensibility and a haunting artistry all its own.


W. R. Johnson's Introduction makes an ideal companion to the translation, offering brilliant insight into the legend of Aeneas; the contrasting roles of the gods, fate, and fortune in Homeric versus Virgilian epic; the character of Aeneas as both wanderer and warrior; Aeneas' relationship to both his enemy Turnus and his lover Dido; the theme of doomed youths in the epic; and Virgil's relationship to the brutal history of Rome that he memorializes in his poem.


A map, a Glossary of Names, a Translator's Preface, and Suggestions for Further Reading are also included.
