  • Darkness Visibleby W. R. Johnson

    University of Chicago Press 2015; US$ 22.50

    One of the best books ever written on one of humanity?s greatest epics, W. R. Johnson?s classic study of Vergil?s Aeneid challenges centuries of received wisdom. Johnson rejects the political and historical reading of the epic as a record of the glorious prehistory of Rome and instead foregrounds Vergil?s enigmatic style and questioning of the heroic... more...

  • Aeneidby Stanley Lombardo; W.R. Johnson

    Hackett Publishing Company, Inc. 2005; US$ 11.95

    A PEN CENTER USA 2006 Literary Award Finalist. Long a master of the crafts of Homeric translation and of rhapsodic performance, Stanley Lombardo now turns to the quintessential epic of Roman antiquity, a work with deep roots in the Homeric tradition.

While making no pretense of offering an experience comparable to that of reading the whole of Ovid?s... more...

  • Civil Warby Lucan; Brian Walters; W. R. Johnson

    Hackett Publishing Company, Inc. 2015; US$ 14.95

    Written in the reign of Nero?the emperor against whom Lucan was implicated in a conspiracy and by whom he was compelled to commit suicide at the age of 25?the poet's dark, ambiguous, unfinished masterpiece focuses on the disintegration of the Roman body politic and the war between Julius Caesar and Pompey that ultimately lead to the end of the Roman... more...
