The Aeneid is a masterpiece of epic poetry and the Latin language poem is more than early imperial propaganda. It proclaims the divine mission of Aeneas to found Rome and the divine injunction of the Romans to unite the world under a noble emperor such as Augustus.

The Aeneid (Virgil) Book Reviews

A poor translationThe Aeneid itself is a very beautiful work of epic poetry that will certainly be entertaining for almost anyone who happens to read it. This particular translation, however, is far from appropriate. The meanings of lines become confused as the translator made every line rhyme, no matter how ridiculous the phrasing or obscure the vocabulary. The meaning of the entire book becomes easily lost, and even enthralling passages have the life sucked out of them. Reading this particular edition is a chore, and I'd strongly recommend finding a different translation of this fantastic book..Score: 1/5

NiceNo frills but as is often the case, far nicer to read portrait style, than landscape..Score: 4/5

Worth a read.Pretty good read. Long, but as long as you speak the words instead of just read them, it helps making understanding them easier..Score: 4/5

My Review of Virgil’s The AeneidIn my opinion, I find that the plot of this epic was somewhat difficult to follow through, as it seemed to jump from one sequence to another without really giving each event any substance for the reader to comprehend, and I’ve often noticed that this is generally true among epics (as well as other written works)that were composed during antiquity. Moreover, Virgil’s use of syntax as well as his choice of diction is extremely difficult to comprehend, even though I’m cognizant of the fact that he wrote this epic two millennia ago. Nevertheless, as an Italian-American, it’s nice to get in touch with my cultural heritage, especially as it dates all the way back to antiquity..Score: 3/5
