The aim of James Rhoades was 'to produce a version of the Aeneid that should be in itself an English poem, and at the same time a faithful reflection of the original.' He succeeded, for his translation is both satisfactory to the purely English reader

Satires by Persius( Book )

23 editions published between 1872 and 1998 in 3 languages and held by 66 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the ancient world, the Satires belonged to a small class of works which remained in constant circulation. They were read in the schools, were commented upon by scholars, and were forever the subject of controversy. This translation boasts several advantages over previous English versions : it is the work of a poet rather than a Latinist, and it offers a faithful rendering of Persius' franker passages which the Victorians never dared to translate fully
The works of Virgil by Virgil( Book )

6 editions published in 1898 in Latin and English and held by 57 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Aeneid by Virgil( Book )

16 editions published between 1866 and 1979 in English and Undetermined and held by 41 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book tells the story of an epic voyage in which Aeneas crosses stormy seas, becomes entangled in a tragic love affair with Dido of Carthage, descends to the world of the dead - all the way tormented by the vengeful Juno, Queen of the Gods - and finally reaches Italy, where he will fulfill his destiny: to found the Roman people
The Odes, Epodes, and Carmen seculare of Horace, in Latin and English by Horace( Book )

10 editions published between 1865 and 1877 in English and held by 39 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Aeschyli Choephoroe by Aeschylus( Book )

7 editions published in 1857 in Greek, Ancient and English and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Satires, Epistles & Art of poetry by Horace( Book )

3 editions published between 1874 and 2006 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In venturing to follow up my translation of the Odes of Horace by a version of the Satires and Epistles, I feel that I am in no way entitled to refer to the former as a justification of my boldness in undertaking the latter. Both classes of works are doubtless explicable as products of the same original genius: but they differ so widely in many of their characteristics, that success in rendering the one, though greater than any which I can hope to have attained, would afford no presumption that the translator would be found to have the least aptitude for the other
The Choephoroe by Aeschylus( Book )

4 editions published in 1857 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
