A National Book Award Winner for verse translation by Allen Mandelbaum

Aeneas flees the ashes of Troy to found the city of Rome and change forever the course of the Western world--and literature as well. Virgil's Aeneid is as eternal as Rome itself, a sweeping epic of arms and heroism--the searching portrait of a man caught between love and duty, human feeling and the force of fate--that has influenced writers for over 2,000 years. Filled with drama, passion, and the universal pathos that only a masterpiece can express, the Aeneid is a book for all time and all people.
