Aeneas flees the ashes of Troy to found the city of Rome and change forever the course of the Western world -- and 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

The divine comedy by Dante Alighieri( Book )

13 editions published between 1995 and 2000 in English and held by 911 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"'The Divine Comedy' begins in a shadowed forest on Good Friday in the year 1300. It proceeds on a journey that, in its intense recreation of the depths and the heights of human experience, has become the key with which Western civilization has sought to unlock the mystery of its own identity. Allen Mandelbaum's astonishingly Dantean translation, which captures so much of the life of the original, renders whole for us the masterpiece that genius whom our greatest poets have recognized as a central model for all poets. This Everyman's edition -- containing in one volume all three cantos, 'Inferno, ' 'Purgatorio, ' and 'Paradiso' -- includes an introduction by Nobel Prize-winning poet Eugenio Montale, a chronology, notes, and a bibliography. Also included are forty-two drawings selected from Botticelli's marvelous late-fifteenth century series of illustrations." ***"An epic poem in which the poet describes his spiritual journey through Hell, Purgatory and Paradise -- guided first by the poet Virgil and then by his beloved Beatrice -- which results in a purification of his religious faith."

Dante's Inferno by Dante Alighieri( Book )

28 editions published between 1980 and 2004 in English and held by 534 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Translator Allen Mandelbaum brings to contemporary readers the first and most famous part of Dante's Divine Comedy: the poet's classic journey through the underworld. Here is Dante at his ribald, shocking best as he describes in vivid detail his harrowing descent to the very bottom of Hell. Filled with politics and philosophy, humor and horror, the Inferno is an epic poem at once universal and personal. For as we're led to the last circle of the Inferno, we recognize the very worst in human nature -- and the ever-abiding potential for redemption

With extensive notes and commentary. - from the publisher
Orlando innamorato by Matteo Maria Boiardo( Book )

1 edition published in 1989 in English and held by 359 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Like Ariosto's Orlando Furioso and Tasso's Jerusalem Delivered, Boiardo's chivalric stories of lords and ladies first entertained the culturally innovative court of Ferrara in the Italian Renaissance. Inventive, humorous, inexhaustible, the story recounts Orlando's love-stricken pursuit of "the fairest of her Sex, Angelica" (in Milton's terms) through a fairyland that combines the military valors of Charlemagne's knights and their famous horses with the enchantments of King Arthur's court. Today it seems more than ever appropriate to offer a new, unabridged edition of Boiardo's Orlando Innamor
