Reader's note

The Aeneid is a breath-taking and epic saga that should be read by all! This purple edition from Penguin shows how it is as bold on the outside as it is on the pages. This translation into prose allows the reader to experience the classic Latin poem in an entirely new way. It begins as follows - This is a tale of arms and of a man. Fated to be an exile, he was the first to sail from the land of Troy and reach Italy, at its Lavinian shore. He met many tribulations on his way both by land and on the ocean ; high Heaven willed it, for Junno was ratliless and could not forget her anger. And he also had to endure great suffering in warfare. - a stirring tale to enlighten the senses!
