it was ok

I have a confession. I could barely get through the Aeneid.

The prose was horrible! It jumped around, staggered into the next clause, stumbled over a metaphor and managed to forget what poor Aeneas was doing.

Sigh. I figure it must have been the translator.

I went a couple of years to a private school and while there I had Latin classes, and an exercise was to translate Virgil. I know his works are good, I just need to find a better translation.
