Book Description

Sept. 7 2007 1853997056 978-1853997051 1
In Book IV of Virgil's "Aeneid", one of the most studied books of that epic poem, Dido, queen of Carthage, is inflamed by love for Aeneas. The goddesses Juno and Venus plot to unite them, and their 'marriage' is consummated in a cave during a hunt. However, Jupiter sends Mercury to remind Aeneas of his duty, and the hero departs despite Dido's passionate pleas. At the end of the book, Dido commits suicide.

This classic edition of the Latin text of Book IV replaces the long-serving edition by Gould and Whiteley, making this book more accessible to today's students and taking account of the most recent scholarship and critical approaches to Virgil. It includes a substantial introduction, annotation to explain language and content, and a comprehensive vocabulary.

4.0 out of 5 stars A useful student edition Aug. 20 2013

This new commentary explains most of the grammatical difficulties that I have encountered in reading the fourth book of Vergil's Aeneid. It is definitely an improvement on the older edition, which is not always the case.
5.0 out of 5 stars Highly recommended Dec 23 2013

I can speak with authority on the Aeneid. I am the author of one book, twelve articles, and one encyclopedia entry on the Aeneid. I also taught the Aeneid in Latin and English for many years. I retired from my professorship several years ago, but I have recently begun to teach Latin to a few private students.
I have found this commentary and its introduction to be extremely helpful, both for the nuances of translation and for the literary qualities of Aeneid IV. In fact, it is the best teaching commentary I have ever used (and I have used many). I recommend that it be used in conjunction with James O’Hara’s commentary.
