Oxford Readings in Vergil's Aeneid

£39.99

Product description

Oxford University Press 1990. Harrison, S.J. Book condition: very good. No DJ. Cover has a little shelf wear and the spine is slightly creased. Clean and bright pages with no inscriptions. Note: the photograph does the cover no justice, in reality it looks a lot better!

This collection of essays provides a number of recent and classic papers on Vergil's "Aeneid" covering a wide range of topics. It is intended to be a supplement to standard reading for undergraduate courses in ancient epic poetry, and Vergil in particular. Special attention has been paid to including useful essays from sources which are rare, out of print, or otherwise difficult to obtain, although care has also been taken to include material which is regularly specified on reading lists.;The essays presented here are all in English, but Dr. Harrison has attempted to maintain a broad overview of 20th century Vergilian criticisms. Work in other languages is mentioned in his introduciton, which is a general survey of literature on the "Aenied" since 1900, and contains much additional bibliographical material.
