Readers' Comments

Two thousand years after the death of its author, Virgil's poetry occupies a central place in the canon of Western literature. The number of responses to Virgil, however, has discouraged anyone from attempting to collect them, sift out the most important, and organize the selection in an intelligible manner. This is the job Putnam and Ziolkowski have undertaken, and they have succeeded admirably.
Craig Kallendorf, Texas A&M University
This wonderful project brings together a truly generous sampling of texts and translations that document the tradition of Virgil reception. There are no comparable collections of sources, much less sources with translations into English.
