    Virgil (70 BC †19 BC) Publius Vergilius Maro (Classical Latin:[ɪ.ʊs wɛrˈɡɪ.lɪ.ʊs ː]; Octo 70 BC – Septem 19 BC), usually called Virgil or Vergil /ˈvɜːrdʒᵻl/ in English, was an ancient Roman poet of the Augustan period. Vergil, Aeneid Books 1–6 is the first of a two-volume commentary on Vergil’s epic designed specifically for today’s Latin students. Along with this classic text, these editions navigate its complexities and elucidate the stylistic and interpretive issues that enhance and sustain appreciation of the Aeneid. This volume includes the complete Books 1–6 in Latin with the most up-to-date.

    Joseph Farrell is Professor of Classical Studies at the University of Pennsylvania. He is the author of several books and papers on Latin literature, including Vergil’s Georgics and the Traditions of Ancient Epic (), Latin Language and Latin Culture from Ancient to Modern Times (), and the forthcoming Juno’s Aeneid: Narrative, Metapoetics, Dissent. The first 6 books, roughly, of the Aeneid relate Aeneas's—"the man's"—wanderings after the fall of Troy, just as Homer's Odyssey narrates Odysseus's various peregrinations on his return voyage home. The last six books, concern the bloodshed and battle—"weapons"—which greet Aeneas in his quest to found a new city on the coast of Italy.
