Title : Prinsky notes and questions on Vergil's Aeneid

Description :
This short Web page, compiled by Dr Norman Prinsky of Augusta State University, is a useful basic starting point for anyone interested in the post-classical reception and translation of Virgil's Latin epic poem, the Aeneid. The site provides a list of English translations of the poem since the sixteenth century, with details of whether these are in verse, blank verse or prose. It also makes available a collection (although rather limited) of images of post-Renaissance artistic works (sculptures and paintings) based on scenes from the Aeneid. There is also a list of musical works which are based on the poem. Finally, a series of sample essay questions on the Aeneid is given - these could be used or adapted by tutors at university level.
