Virgil's Iliad : an essay on epic narrative by K. W Gransden( Book )

15 editions published between 1984 and 1991 in English and Undetermined and held by 617 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a book about Virgil's Aeneid, especially the second half of the poem, are explores in some detail Virgil's use of Homer's Iliad. The author's main purpose is to try to re-establish the value and importance of books VII-XII of the Aeneid, which he argues, far from constituting a falling off from the more familiar earlier books, Aeneid VII-XII presents a continuous epic narrative of sustained power, planned and executed on the largest scale and offering a structural unity which matches that of its great model. His secondary purpose is to try to give the modern reader an impression of what Homer's Iliad meant to the implied reader of the Aeneid and to Virgil himself. Throughout, Gransden places emphasis on the text as a piece of continuous narrative, finding that the experience of reading VII-XII modifies the reader's sense of books I-VI. This book will interest all those who enjoy Virgil, whether they are studying Latin or reading the poet in translation. A knowledge of Latin is not essential and those concerned with the techniques of narrative in epic and other fiction will also find the book of value. -- Amazon.com

The Aeneid of Virgil : a verse translation by Virgil( Book )

in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Aeneas flees the ashes of Troy to found the city of Rome and change forever the course of the Western world--as literature as well. Virgil's "Aeneid" is as eternal as Rome itself, a sweeping epic of arms and heroism--the searching portrait of a man caught between love and duty, human feeling and the force of fate--that has influenced writers for over 2,000 years. Filled with drama, passion, and the universal pathos that only a masterpiece can express. "The Aeneid" is a book for all the time and all people."Allen Mandelbaum has produced a living "Aeneid," a version that is unmistakably poetry." -- Erich Segal, "The New York Times Book Review"
