    Pretty good read. Long, but as long as you speak the words instead of just read them, it helps making understanding them easier.
  • A poor translation

    The 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.
  • Outstanding !!!!!!!!!

    No frills but as is often the case, far nicer to read portrait style, than landscape.
