Description

"Now we have it, and it is a glorious thing. Ferry has long been known as perhaps the foremost contemporary translator of Latin poetry, his translations of Virgils Eclogues and Georgics having established themselves as much-admired standards. He brings to the Aeneid the same genius, rendering Virgils formal, metrical lines into an English that is familiar and alive. Yet in doing so, he surrenders none of the feel of the ancient world that resonates throughout the poem and gives it the power that has drawn readers to it for centuries. In Ferrys hands, the Aeneid becomes once more a lively, dramatic poem of daring and adventure, of love and loss, devotion and death. Never before have Virgil's twin gifts of poetic language and fleet storytelling been presented so powerfully for English-language readers. Ferrys Aeneid will be a landmark, a gift to longtime lovers of Virgil and the perfect entry point for new readers." --
