Further Voices in Vergil's Aeneid

R. O. A. M. Lyne

A Clarendon Press Publication

There is in the Aeneid one voice Virgil wishes us to hear, the epic voice, but there are also "further voices" that comment upon, question, and occasionally subvert the implications of the epic voice. This study provides the first in-depth analysis of these "further voices," illuminating with unusual clarity Virgil's method of composition and yielding an intimate glimpse into the working of his mind.
