About the Author

Joseph Farrell is Professor of Classical Studies at the University of Pennsylvania. He has written and edited numerous books and articles on Vergil and Latin language in general.


"This is an admirable commentary, with Latin text, vocabulary, and appendix on Vergil's meter, offering students of Vergil at the intermediate level or higher succinct grammatical, stylistic, and contextual help towards a rich understanding of the poet's profound portrayal of Aeneas' descent into the lower world. It is prefaced by an enticing introduction to the role played by this book in the narrative of the epic as a whole, and sections of the commentary have bibliographical references for further reading." -Raymond J. Clark, University of Ottawa, Canada The new Vergil commentaries from Focus are an exciting resource for almost anyone reading the Aeneid in Latin... The editors recognize that developing core reading skills and involving students in the interpretive questions raised by the poem are not separate objectives. This recognition has resulted in commentaries that enticingly present basic information in a wider setting of observation and enquiry... All in all, the Focus series balances simplicity and subtlety, reminding students at all levels that increasing technical precision and stretching one's interpretive curiosity arefundamentallyone endeavor.
