This edition is part of a new series of commentaries on the Aeneid. Each volume is edited by a scholar of Roman epic and designed with the needs of today's college Latin students in mind. A two-volume edition of the entire Aeneid will also be a part of the series.

Industry Reviews

"What we have is a useful, resourceful, organized book, shaped to its purpose. My impression is that it should succeed very well in a classroom and possibly become a suitable help for both students and teachers. In any case, it is a valuable addition to the existing corpus of commentaries on Aeneid 1." Massimo Gioseffi, University degli Studi di Milano/Bryn Mawr Classical Review 2011.03.29 "The new Vergil commentaries from Focus are an exciting resource for almost anyone reading the Aeneid in Latin... The editors recognize that developing core reading skills and involving students in the interpretive questions raised by the poem are not separate objectives. This recognition has resulted in commentaries that enticingly present basic information in a wider setting of observation and enquiry... All in all, the Focus series balances simplicity and subtlety, reminding students at all levels that increasing technical precision and stretching one's interpretive curiosity are -- fundamentally -- one endeavor." -- Antonia Syson, Purdue University / Teaching Classical Languages (CAMWS) Volume 1.1, Fall 2012 http://tcl.camws.org/view.php?file=fall2012/Syson.pdf -- Antonia Syson -- Teaching Classical Languages, Fall 2012, p. 52, 20120108
