    A core addition to academic library Latin Studies reference collections

    Now in its second edition, The Art Of The Aeneid is Professor William S. Anderson's 138-page analytic introduction to Vergil's epic saga 'Aeneid', and a 'useful start on Rome's finest poem'. Professor Anderson (Emeritus Professor of Latin at the University of California at Berkeley), has taught Latin previously at Yale and published informative works on Horace, Vergil, Roman comedy and satire, and Ovid's 'Metamorphoses.' Beginning with a map tracing the wanderings of Aeneas, The Art Of The Aeneid continues in eight chapters to analyze twelve books of the 'Aeneid', provide background on Vergil and epic style, and offer illumination on Latin-English translation and Vergil's style. Two invaluable appendices include a chronology of Vergil's life and works in historical context and a list of resources for further reading, followed by extensive notes to the chapters and an index. The Art Of The Aeneid provides the reader with an excellent critical summary of Vergil's 'Aeneid' and its poetic art. Professor Anderson provides a justified framework to well -reasoned conclusions about the intent of Vergil in presenting certain details as he does. An added attraction of this paperback edition is its lovely full color cover illustration by Thom Kapheim. The Art Of The Aeneid is a fine scholar's resource and can also be enjoyed by any appreciator of the Latin classics and would prove a core addition to academic library Latin Studies reference collections. Also very highly recommended for students of Latin are three other Bolchazy-Cardduci titles: A Horace Workbook (0865165742, $20.00), Catullus Expanded Edition (0865166-03X, $39.00), and Vergil Vocabulary Cards For AP Selectio (0865166102, $22.00)
