Virgil, a Poet in Augustan Rome by James Morwood

Book Description

An exciting series that provides students with direct access to the ancient world by offering new translations of extracts from its key texts. Virgil is to Latin literature what Homer is to Greek and Shakespeare to English. He is both the supreme poet of Rome's greatness and its most profound exponent of the suffering involved in human experience. This book enables students to explore the issues at the heart of his work. It is built around substantial excerpts from his three great poems: the Eclogues, his highly original pastoral collection; the Georgics, his work about farming described by Dryden as 'the best Poem of the best poet'; and the Aeneid, the supreme Roman epic.
