Book Description

1 April 2013
This pivotal book of the "Aeneid" has Aeneas - like Odysseus in "Odyssey XI" - visiting the Underworld. He is poised, as it were, between the world of his 'Homeric' past, the wanderings he has undergone in the poem's first half, and the destiny mapped out for his descendants, which culminates in the age of Augustus and his lost successor Marcellus. Aeneas is at once a figure of past, present and future. This new edition replaces the long-serving edition by Gould & Whiteley, making the book more accessible to today's students and taking account of the most recent scholarship and critical approaches to Virgil. It includes an introduction, annotation to explain language and content, and a comprehensive vocabulary.

More About the Author

Virgil, born in 70 B.C., is best remembered for his masterpiece, The Aeneid. He earned great favor by portraying Augustus as a descendant of the half-god, half-man Aeneas. Although Virgil swore on his deathbed that The Aeneid was incomplete and unworthy, it has been considered one of the greatest works of Western literature for more than two thousand years.

5.0 out of 5 stars a splendid 'school' edition of Aeneid 6 25 Feb 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is one of three books of the Aeneid which comes with a commentary by Keith Maclennan. All have extensive commentary explaining how the Latin works and the versification, and a vocabulary section at the back - and are very well suited to anyone (like me) starting to read Latin again after many years of not doing so. I suspect that they are also excellent for use as 'school' editions, which is probably the primary market at which they are aimed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Review of MacLelan's Aeneid Vi 26 May 2012
By Ryan Mease - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I must be in a positive mood this morning, but I honestly can't think of any way to criticize this edition. It contains a great introduction, featuring information on the books literary, social, political and historical context, and introduction to meter, literary figures, etc. The appendices include a full glossary, very (almost too) helpful notes, and further information on literary figures and context. This is designed, and succeeds, as an all-in-one package.
