Virgil's Aeneid is a gateway between the pagan and the Christian centuries. Virgil, who was born in 70 B.C. and died in 19 B.C., left the poem unfinished at his death. That was eight years after the republican government of old Rome gave place to the rule of emperors, and only a few years before the Christian Era started. Virgil is the Poet of the Gate. Translated into English verse from the Latin by Rolfe Humphries. "Mr.Humphries has produced an English version of Vergil's epic that brings out its power without losing sight of its variety and tone . . . a formidable work . . . as readable in our day as Dryden's version was in his." - W. H. Auden in The Nation

(Key Words: Latin Literature, Virgil, Aeneid, Dido, Poetry, Aeneas, Rolfe Humphries, Italy, Carthage).
