Book Cover
A Companion to Vergil's Aeneid and its Tradition

A Companion to Vergil's Aeneid and its Tradition presents a collection of original interpretive essays by an international team of renowned scholars. Topics covered include Vergil's handling of sources; the history of Vergil reception in literature; and the enduring influence of Vergilian themes in prose, music, and art. The problem of translating the Aeneid into English and other languages is also covered, along with a survey of more recent translations into non-Western languages and their reception. Thought-provoking and accessible, A Companion to Vergil's Aeneid and its Tradition draws out wonderful new insights and complexities from the works of a poet whose voice continues to resonate after 2,000 years.
