" Robert Fagles is the best living translator of ancient Greek drama, lyric poetry, and epic into modern English." -Garry Wills, "The New Yorker" " Mr. Fagles has been remarkably successful in finding a style that is of our time and yet timeless." -Richard Jenkyns, "The New York Times Book Review" " Robert Fagles gives the full range of Virgil's drama, grandeur, and pathos in vigorous, supple modern English.
