A powerful and poignant translation of Vergils epic poem, newly equipped with introduction and notes Ruden set the bar for Aeneid translations in 2008, and has raised it now with this revision. I am confident it will be a long time before a translator exceeds the standard that she has set.A. M. Juster, Athenaeum Review This is a substantial revision of Sarah Rudens celebrated 2008 translation of Vergils Aeneid, which was acclaimed by Garry Wills as the first translation since Drydens that can be read as a great English poem in itself. Rudens line-for-line translation in iambic pentameter is an astonishing feat, unique among modern translations. Her revisions to the translation render the poetry more spare and muscular than her previous version and capture even more closely the essence of Vergils poem, which pits national destiny against the fates of individuals, and which resonates deeply in our own time. This distinguished translation, now equipped with introduction, notes, and glossary by leading Vergil scholar Susanna Braund, allows modern readers to experience for themselves the timeless power of Vergils masterpiece.

Many human achievements deserve our praise, and this excellent translation is certainly one of them.Richard Garner, New Criterion Toning down the magniloquence, Sarah Ruden gives us an Aeneid more intimate in tone and soberer in measure than we are used toa gift for which many will be grateful.J. M. Coetzee An intimate rendering of great emotional force and purity. . . . The immediacy, beauty, and timelessness of the original Latin masterpiece lift off these pages with gem-like originality.Choice
