Description

The Aeneid is a masterpiece of epic poetry and the Latin language poem is more than early imperial propaganda. It proclaims the divine mission of Aeneas to found Rome and the divine injunction of the Romans to unite the world under a noble emperor such as Augustus.

  • John Dryden's translation

    4
    By jacksonrichardson
    This is the text of John Dryden’s classic 1697 translation in rhyming couplets. In its own right it was a major influence on English poetry. It is given here with the original punctuation, as far as I can tell, but the spelling updated to modern American (“long labors both by land and sea he bore”). I’m enjoying it very much to dip into Dryden’s classic verse as I travel about. The text currently on the details page on the itunes store are irrelevant. It is nothing to do with Robert Fagles and there is no introduction by Bernard Knox. There is no annotation. The separate books can be reached from the contents page.
