Richard Heinze provides a remarkable insight into the problems Virgil faced. He identifies certain themes now accepted as central to Virgils epic vision, among them the subordination of event to emotion- the way in which the poet justifies Aeneas unheroic flight from Troy- the role of prophecy- and the virtues that make Dido uniquely worthy of Aeneas love.Heinze was a man of refined literary judgment who wrote in a clear and unpretentious style. This translation from the German is a basic text for students as well as for scholars: published for the first time in paperback, it now includes a helpful Index of passages cited from the Aeneid.
