This is the book that revolutionized Latin textbooks, with its student-friendly format of vocabulary and notes on the same page as the Latin text, and unique pull-out vocabulary of most-often repeated words. Together, these allow for faster reading, unimpeded by the page-turning required to look up vocabulary or consult notes. Pharr's Aeneid is the all-time most popular textbook of Vergil's Aeneid. Grammatical notes are supported by a full grammatical appendix; vocabulary memorization is aided by vocabulary lists, arranged by frequency of occurrence, for drilling. The perfect edtion for both classroom and home study.

What People Are Saying

Gaylan DuBose
"The notes are more than scholarly: they are practical. More than once Boyd tells the reader in what word order to "take" a clause or phrase. This kind of information is often a salvation for students - and for teachers, too. The author has explained so very many things to the reader, and the notes are a virtual source of knowledge in and of themselves. Anybody can pull lines out of a work, but not everyone can bring the lines alive and make the text work the way Boyd has with the notes. [...] This book was a joy to review."--(Gaylan DuBose, Fulmore Middle School and Guardian Angel Academy)
T. Keith Dix
"Advanced Placement teachers will cheer the arrival of Barbara Weiden Boyd's commentary on the new selections on the AP Vergil syllabus (Aeneid 10.420-509, 12.791-842, 887-952). An expert on Roman poetry, veteran grader of AP Latin exams, and former member and chair of the AP Latin Test Development Committee, Boyd was an ideal candidate to undertake this project. No teacher of Vergil should be without this book."--(T. Keith Dix, University of Georgia)
