Read full description of the books Aeneid I:Incredibly useful both for teachers and students of Vergil. I obtained an original hardbound copy in some used book store ages ago (pre-internet era) and freaked the moment I saw it. What could be more useful than a book that parses every single word of Aeneid Book 1? All sorts of curiosities, delicious little tidbits of philological learning, are sprinkled liberally throughout.
Vergil is notorious for his ambiguity; sometimes, for example, it is nearly impossible to pin down the nature of a particular ablative usage. Means? Manner? Cause? Separation? Place where? Comparison? Price? Often all can be ruled out except two, then it's a coin toss. This book helps to tackle that sort of problem and in some cases offers a detailed explanation of different possible ways of translation of the same construction.
The book contains the complete verses of Aeneid 1 with literal interlinear translation, a prose translation, and then the full breakdown of every detail of every word on the bottom 2/3 of each page. A sine qua non.
Read information about the authorPublius Vergilius Maro (October 15, 70 BCE – September 21, 19 BCE), usually called Virgil or Vergil /ˈvɜrdʒəl/ in English, was an ancient Roman poet of the Augustan period. He is known for three major works of Latin literature, the Eclogues (or Bucolics), the Georgics, and the epic Aeneid. A number of minor poems, collected in the Appendix Vergiliana, are sometimes attributed to him.
Virgil is traditionally ranked as one of Rome's greatest poets. His Aeneid has been considered the national epic of ancient Rome from the time of its composition to the present day. Modeled after Homer's Iliad and Odyssey, the Aeneid follows the Trojan refugee Aeneas as he struggles to fulfill his destiny and arrive on the shores of Italy—in Roman mythology the founding act of Rome. Virgil's work has had wide and deep influence on Western literature, most notably the Divine Comedy of Dante, in which Virgil appears as Dante's guide through hell and purgatory.
