about

The Aeneid is not only Virgil's greatest work, it is the singular most important piece of Latin poetry to emerge and survive from the 1000 year history of the Roman Empire. Telling the story of the hero Aeneas, who sets out from the destruction of Troy to wander the Mediterranean and seek out a new home for his people. Full of famous episodes like the love affair with Queen Dido of Carthage, the journey to the Underworld, and brutal wars in the strange new land of Italy.

Here you will find the full text in Latin as well as a full English translation. The text has been divided into digestible sections accompanied directly with its English translation, so there is no need for messy back-and-forth page turning as in other parallel text editions. The value of parallel text editions is apparent to anyone with an interest in ancient languages and literature. These editions can be used to aid vocabulary and grammar learning, to help foster a deeper familiarity with ancient literature, or simply just for the pleasure of hearing old tongues at their best.
