Bookcover: The Aeneid
<br />Here is another reading pick from the Logan Library Staff.


Book: The Aeneid
by Virgil, translated by Robert Fitzgerald

Recommended by: Joseph
How do you review a true classic? Virgil's Aenied, written around 25 BC, is the epic tale of the founding of the Roman empire. In beautifully descriptive language, Virgil (and Fitzgerald as his able translator from the Latin) tells the story of Aeneas, a refugee from the fall of Troy, who famously follows his fate ordained by the gods through violent storms in the Mediterranean, a passionate love affair in North Africa, a haunting visit to the underworld, and victory on the Italian peninsula after several shockingly brutal battles.
