Poet and Artist is a winning combination of a CD that features the Ogilby plates (included by John Dryden in his translation of the Aeneid) and a student edition of the AP* lines of Vergil’s epic, complete with questions about Vergil’s Latin masterpiece. By juxtaposing the images on the plates, the text of Vergil, and the useful questions to be used as guidelines, the authors have enabled students to increase their comprehension of the Latin passage and its textual details and to reflect more critically upon the text and the artist’s canvas. Special Features... Engravings of scenes from the Aeneid in PowerPoint and PDF format on CD-ROM Complete text of all lines on the Vergil AP* syllabus Text that coordinates with illustrations italicized for easy location Questions on the verses and engravings face opposite relevant text Space provided for recording student responses
