Review

A new and noble standard bearer . . . Theres a capriciousness to Fagless line well suited to this vast storys ebb and flow.
"The New York Times Book Review" (front page review)
Fagless new version of Virgils epic delicately melds the stately rhythms of the original to a contemporary cadence. . . . He illuminates the poems Homeric echoes while remaining faithful to Virgils distinctive voice.
"The New Yorker"
Robert Fagles gives the full range of Virgils drama, grandeur, and pathos in vigorous, supple modern English. It is fitting that one of the great translators of "The Iliad" and "The Odyssey" in our times should also emerge as a surpassing translator of "The Aeneid,"
J. M. Coetzee

?A thousand books to a thousand persons.?
?Ralph Waldo Emerson



"Fitzgerald's is so decisively the best modern Aeneid that it is unthinkable that anyone will want to use any other version for a long time to come."--"New York Review of Books"
"From the beginning to the end of this English poem...the reader will find the same sure control of English rhythms, the same deft phrasing, and an energy which urges the eye onward."--"The New Republic"
"A rendering that is both marvelously readable and scrupulously faithful.... Fitzgerald has managed, by a sensitive use of faintly archaic vocabulary and a keen ear for sound and rhythm, to suggest the solemnity and the movement of Virgil's poetry as no previous translator has done (including Dryden).... This is a sustained achievement of beauty and power."--"Boston Globe" --This text refers to the Library Binding edition.

From the Inside Flap

"A brilliant translation; the only one since Dryden which reads like English verse and conveys some of the majesty and pathos of the original."--Bernard M. W. Knox

"Mandelbaum has . . . given us a contemporary experience of the masterpiece, at last."--David Ignatow

"The book has a wonderful, detailed liveliness in every line."--Robert Fagles

"Comes closer to the impossible goal of perfection than any of the numerous efforts that have poured out of American and British presses since World War II."--William S. Anderson --This text refers to the Library Binding edition.
