Virgil's Aeneid, an epic which tells the story of Aeneas' flight from burning Troy, his adventures on the high seas and eventual arrival in Italy, thereby founding the Roman race, is one of the most influential works of Roman literature.

This edition of the first two books is designed for those who have completed an introductory course in Latin and aims to help such users to enjoy one of Latin literature's greatest masterpieces.

The text is accompanied by a running vocabulary, learning vocabulary, full grammatical help and notes.

Essays at the end of each passage are designed to encourage appreciation of Virgil's plot-handling, poetic art and rich understanding of humanity, and there are references throughout to the most helpful modern thinking about the poem and its significance.

No other intermediate text is so carefully designed to provide all the help that is needed to make reading Virgil a pleasure.
