This is a superb and easy to read translation of the first six books of Virgil's Aeneid with vivid prose and descriptive text that takes the reader with Aeneas as he leaves Troy and travels to Italy. Virgil captures the essence of the story although the work does get a little wordy and complicated in places, which I found did detract from the story a little, although it is still rather readable, especially compared to other works of the time.
