The masterpiece of Rome's greatest poet, Virgil's Aeneid, has inspired generations of readers and holds a central place in Western literature.
The epic tells the story of a group of refugees from the ruined city of Troy, whose attempts to reach a promised land in the West are continually frustrated by the hostile goddess Juno. Finally, reaching Italy, their leader, Aeneas, is forced to fight a bitter war against the natives to establish the foundations from which Rome is destined to rise.
This magnificent poem, in the modern translation by Cecil Day-Lewis, is superbly read by David Collins.
This leather-bound with gold gilt pages collector's edition of Virgil: The Aeneid is part of the Easton Press The 100 Greatest Books Ever Written" series.
The book Virgil: The Aeneid is in good shape for its age with no rips or tears.
