Conington's Virgil: Aeneid Books I - II: Classic Editions

Comentarii de John Conington Editat de Philip Hardie, Anne Rogerson
en Limba Engleză Paperback – 18 dec 2007
John Conington (1825–69) was a towering figure in Victorian scholarship, not least because of his remarkably sensitive and literate commentaries on Virgil’s Aeneid. The three-volume cloth edition of The Works of Virgil, begun by Conington in 1852, has been unavailable for over a century, except in rare second-hand sets. Now, for the first time, the whole of Conington’s work is being reissued in a set of six paperback volumes. Each volume includes a new introduction by an established scholar, setting Conington's commentary in context, as well as a general introduction to Conington’s work by Philip Hardie, who offers a fresh appreciation of the work.
