Abstract:

The eight radio talks comprising this publication were given by Dr. Evan T. Sage during the fall of 1929 in anticipation of the bimillenial of the birth of the poet Virgil, which is to be celebrated throughout the world in 1930. And from this diminutive volume, as, similarly, from the talks as Dr. Sage originally gave them, Virgil emerges not only as "the lord of language" whose verses are "the stateliest measure ever molded by the lips of man" but as a living personality, an interpreter of life today, as well as two thousand years ago. -- Introduction.
