Description
Ten years ago, at the age of 82, David Ferry (b. 1924) began translating Virgil’s epic, in between working on his other poems and translations. This new rendering, which is likely to supplant the current standard editions of the poem, recreates in immediate, forward moving, and rhythmic contemporary American English that “sound-and-sense witchery, at once stately and debauched, of Virgil’s Latin” (as noted by one of the Press’s readers). It offers a new way into this timeless work for poetry lovers of all levels of knowledge and experience, and will be, without a doubt, the crowning achievement for the National Book Award-winning Ferry. The publication of a new Virgil for a new generation of readers will be an extraordinary event for American letters.

display_description"This new translation brings Virgil's masterpiece newly to life for English-language readers. It's the first in centuries crafted by a translator who is first and foremost a poet, and it is a glorious thing. David Ferry has long been known as perhaps our greatest contemporary translator of Latin poetry, his translations of Virgil's Eclogues and Georgics having established themselves as much-admired standards. He brings to the Aeneid the same genius, rendering Virgil's formal metrical lines into an English that is familiar and alive. Yet in doing so, he surrenders none of the feel of the ancient world that resonates throughout the poem, and gives it the power that has drawn readers to it for centuries. In Ferry's hands, the Aeneid becomes once more a lively, dramatic poem of daring and adventure, of love and loss, of devotion and death. Never before have Virgil's twin gifts of poetic language and urgent, compelling storytelling been presented so powerfully for English-language readers. Ferry's Aeneid will be a landmark, a gift to longtime lovers of Virgil, and the perfect entry point for new readers."--Dust jacket.
