Profoundly poetic yet gloriously accessible, this audio recording is the best way to experience a work that has remained a centerpiece of Western civilization for 2,000 years. Fitzgerald’s rendering speaks directly to the modern listener, inviting us to share the excitement, adventure, and human tears as Aeneas, the warrior hero, escapes from the burning city of Troy, embarks on a long and perilous journey, and eventually, triumphantly establishes a new nation: Rome.

    " Woo Virigil :) haha. Read this for my classics a level and I suppose a lot of people would prefer it to be a more elongated version of book four, but there are so many ideas and themes, and it's dripping with contemporary allusions, which are great for the history stuff, anyway, yeah, Turnus and Dido are two tragic characters, and the view on fate is a nice difference to ol' Homer "

    " This was very interesting - a lot of war and graphic imagery. I really liked it. "

    " Although it is an enjoyable story, The Aeneid is more than a tale of heroic deeds and destiny. Anyone who thinks Virgil is simply ripping off Homer, is not getting the point! This book is full of hidden treasures. Also, this translation is fantastic! Read it slowly and savor it. "

    " So I was forced to read this for school and I actually mostly enjoyed it. It wasn't like it was impossible to put down but it wasn't too hard to pick up either. I could put in each chapter summary I had to do for class, but that would just give away the whole story and there would be no point in you reading it. If you like classics this is definitely worth it. If you like crazy monsters this is definitely worth it. If you like battles the second half is definitely worth it. "
