Book XII brings Virgil's Aeneid to a close, as the long-delayed single combat between Aeneas and Turnus ends with Turnus' death - a finale that many readers find more unsettling than triumphant. In this, the first detailed single-volume commentary on the book in any language, Professor Tarrant explores Virgil's complex portrayal of the opposing champions, his use and transformation of earlier poetry (Homer's in particular) and his shaping of the narrative in its final phases. In addition to the linguistic and thematic commentary, the volume contains a substantial introduction that discusses the larger literary and historical issues raised by the poem's conclusion; other sections include accounts of Virgil's metre, later treatments of the book's events in art and music, and the transmission of the text. The edition is designed for upper-level undergraduates and graduate students and will also be of interest to scholars of Latin literature.

Die Abhandlung dokumentiert erstmals in systematischer Weise synästetische Metaphorik als Element der lateinischen Dichtersprache. Besonderes Augenmerk gilt dabei dem Lehrgedicht des Lukrez, denn durch die herausgehobene Bedeutung der Sinneswahrnehmung in der epikureischen Erkenntnislehre haben die Synästhesien in De rerum natura eine besondere argumentative Funktion. Mit den theoretischen Vorüberlegungen leistet die Arbeit auch einen allgemeinen Beitrag zur Interpretation poetischer Metaphern.

Vergil’s Aeneid is one of the greatest works of world literature. Published around 18 BCE, this epic poem narrates the mythical antecedents of the foundation of Rome. The translation is in verses – in hexameter as the original version – but, leaving behind the classicistic tradition, uses contemporary German to render the Latin text.

In Vergiliana Egil Kraggerud collects together over 100 new, revised, and previously published discussions of textual issues in Vergil’s Eclogues, Georgics, and the Aeneid. Through these and in his Introduction, the author argues for a less conservative approach to these texts than has been fashionable among 20th century editors and commentators. This profoundly learned, engaging and valuable contribution is a critical resource for anyone working on the works of Vergil at both under- and postgraduate level, written by one of the most respected scholars in the field.

This book re-examines the most traditional area of classical scholarship, offering critical assessments of the current state of the field, its methods and controversies, and its prospects for the future in a digital environment. Each stage of the editorial process is examined, from gathering and evaluating manuscript evidence to constructing the text and critical apparatus, with particular attention given to areas of dispute, such as the role of conjecture. The importance of subjective factors at every point is highlighted. An Appendix offers practical guidance in reading a critical apparatus. The discussion is framed in a way that is accessible to non-specialists, with all Latin texts translated. The book will be useful both to classicists who are not textual critics and to non-classicists interested in issues of editing.

The Aeneid is a landmark of literary narrative and poetic sensibility. This 2004 guide gives a full account of the historical setting and significance of Virgil's epic, and discusses the poet's use of Homer's Iliad and Odyssey, as well as the most celebrated episodes in the poem, including the tragedy of Dido and Aeneas' visit to the underworld.

The final chapter considers the Aeneid's influence on later writers including Dante and the Romantics. The guide to further reading has been updated and will prove to be an invaluable resource to students coming to The Aeneid for the first time.

Syed argues that the first century BC Latin poem had a significant impact on its Roman readers' sense of self as Romans, and articulated Roman identity for them through the readers' identification with and differentiation from its fictional characters. She considers identity at both the individual level of the subject and the collective level of et
