Repro Books Limited, 09/01/2023 - 594 páginas
A stunning new translation of Virgil's famous epic is available from the acclaimed translator of The Iliad and The Odyssey. In order to fulfil his destiny as the builder of Rome, Aeneas, Achilles' formidable adversary in the Iliad, flees the ruins of Troy. He will travel across choppy waters, become embroiled in a tragic love affair, and be drawn into the actual land of the dead while being tormented the entire way by the furious Juno, Queen of the Gods. He eventually arrives in Italy, the promised land, and establishes the Roman empire there after a number of costly conflicts and with great expectations. The Aeneid redefines passion, dignity, and heroism for our times in its brutal depiction of a man torn between love, duty, and fate.
