    Dit is de vertaling van Vergilius' werk door priester-dichter Anton Van Wilderode, gepubliceerd in de jaren '70. In die tijd zat ik op de schoolbanken (middelbare school) en kreeg ik in het vijfde jaar Nederlands van hem (Cyriel Coupé was zijn eigenlijke naam), uiteraard een bijzondere ervaring. Eén keer gaf hij gedetailleerd uitleg over hoe hij de Latijnse hexameters van Vergilius had omgezet naar het Nederlands, geen eenvoudige klus, zoals we in de oefeningen zelf ook merkten. Van Wilderode we Dit is de vertaling van Vergilius' werk door priester-dichter Anton Van Wilderode, gepubliceerd in de jaren '70.

Eén keer gaf hij gedetailleerd uitleg over hoe hij de Latijnse hexameters van Vergilius had omgezet naar het Nederlands, geen eenvoudige klus, zoals we in de oefeningen zelf ook merkten. Van Wilderode werd op dat moment (1977) volop gelauwerd voor zijn vertaling (onder meer met een eredoctoraat aan de Katholieke Universiteit Leuven). Van Wilderode stond zowel in zijn eigen dichtwerk als in zijn vertalingen van Vergilius en Horatius voor een erg klassieke, elegische aanpak. Dat beroert nog altijd een gevoelige snaar bij mij (zeker zijn betere dichtwerk), maar als ik eerlijk ben - we zijn nu meer dan 40 jaar later - is de stijl van zijn vertalingen nu wel echt uit de tijd. Hij benadrukte toen trouwens zelf dat klassieke werken (zoals die van Vergilius) minstens elke generatie een nieuwe vertaling behoeven.

    Maybe my favorite Latin poet. Excellent form and great sensibility.

    Beautiful edition as expected though the binding should probably be a little better. The app crit is good, but not really all that necessary as the manuscript tradition of Vergil is pretty strong. His poetry is naturally fantastic even though I've only read Book VI of the Aeneid, which is a wonderful chapter. Vergil is someone all classicists must read!

    Tal vez ha sido Virgilio quien nos dio la más elevada expresión de esta paz romana: “La era final que predijo el oráculo ha llegado; / El gran orden de los siglos ha nacido otra vez”.

    He hecho reseña de cada parte de este libro en sus respectivos libros. La parte que más me ha gustado es la Eneida y esas cinco estrellas van por añadir su biografía por Suetonio y el mapa de la Eneida y... Kudos.

    A beautiful Latin text of Virgil's work (not just the Aeneid). I really enjoyed using this copy.

    (Only the Aeneid, at the moment)

    This book has a well accepted Apparatus Criticus of the Aeneid. It is of the Oxford Classical Texts series.
