This new collection of essays, commissioned from a range of scholars, takes as its theme the reception of Rome's greatest poet in a time of profound cultural change. This volume considers the different ways in which Vergil was read and appropriated; by poets, commentators, orators and historians.

"Students, scholars, classicists and cultural historians, and literary critics with an interest in Vergil's afterlife must read this informative and fascinating volume."
