Vergil: Aeneid 10

With introduction translation, and commentary by S. J. Harrison

A Clarendon Press Publication

Oxford Classical Monographs

The tenth book of Vergil's Aeneid contains some of the poem's most dramatic war narrative and yet has been unjustly neglected by Vergilian scholars. Making the text accessible to the modern reader, this book provides a full introduction examining the literary aspects of Aeneid 10, notes on the text and translation, a discussion of the major interpretational problems of the Aeneid raised in Book 10, and a facing English translation of the text for those with little or no knowledge of Latin. The first major commentary to deal exclusively with Book 10, this work will be invaluable to all interested in the great Roman epic.
