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 1874 and 1998 in 3 languages and held by 70 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

Opera; recognovit brevique adnotatione critica instruxit R.A.B. Mynors by Virgil( Book )

44 editions published between 1858 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 52 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First published between 1858 and 1871, John Conington's lucid exposition of the complete works of Virgil continues to set the standard for commentary on the Virgilian corpus. After decades out of print, this three-volume edition is once again available to readers, allowing Conington's subtle investigations of language, context, and intellectual background to find a fresh audience. Volume 2 (1863) features the first six books of the Aeneid. Introductory essays and detailed, informative notes situate the work within the larger field of Greek and Latin epic poetry. Still a major scholarly contribution over a century and a half after its initial publication, Conington's Works of Virgil is fine testament to one of Victorian England's most talented readers of classical Latin, a philologist whose gifts, as his colleague Henry Nettleship noted, 'were of a single and representative order ... unlikely to be replaced'
The odes and Carmen seculare of Horace by Horace( Book )

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

The Choephoroe of Aeschylus: by Aeschylus( Book )

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

The eclogues of Virgil by Virgil( Book )

9 editions published between 1898 and 2007 in 3 languages and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Eclogues of Virgil gave definitive form to the pastoral mode, and these magically beautiful poems, so influential in so much subsequent literature, perhaps best exemplify what pastoral can do. These songs made a world; it is a world all the more beautiful for being vulnerable to the intrusions of power and of natural calamity and loss. A bilingual edition, The Eclogues of Virgil: a translation includes concise, informative notes and an introduction that describes the fundamental role of this deeply original book in the great pastoral tradition."--
The Agamemnon of Aeschylus by Aeschylus( Book )

5 editions published in 1848 in English and Greek, Ancient and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Delight in the telling of the ancient story of Agamemnon and his return home after his victory in the Trojan War by Greek playwright Aeschylus
