This commentary interprets the poetic methods and intentions of the Aeneid, and explains not only what Virgil says but how he says it and why he says it in the particular way which he chooses. The limitations and similarities of diction from English poets are frequently quoted, especially from Spenser and Milton, because this can illuminate the literary impact of the Vergilian passage.
