Abstract:

Maffeo Vegio (1407-1458) was the outstanding Latin poet of the first half of the fifteenth century. This volume includes Book XIII of Vergil's "Aeneid," Vegio's famous continuation of the Roman epic, which was extremely popular in the later Renaissance, printed many times and translated into every major European language (and even into Scottish). It also contains three other epic works: "Astyanax," based on an episode in the "Iliad"; "The Golden Fleece" ("Vellus Aureum"); and "Antonias," a short epic based on the life of Saint Anthony of Egypt. Antonias is the first Christian epic of the Renaissance, a precursor of Milton's "Paradise Lost." This volume contains the first modern editions of the Latin text of "Antonias" and "Astyanax."--Jacket.
