Editorial Reviews

An anthology of 43 classic essays and poems on the Roman poet. Quinn's position is that his work continues to be compelling and flexible enough to support a wide range of interpretations and perspectives. In addition to a bibliography, she provides a lengthy introduction and conclusion that tackle the question of the book's title, Why Vergil? Further, she juxtaposes the first few lines of the in its original Latin with five translations, and includes a synopsis of it and a list of dates for quick reference. She has not indexed the volume.
