The Virgil Encyclopedia represents the first comprehensive reference volume to be published in English on Publius Vergilius Maro, the classical Roman poet whose works and thoughts have been at the center of Western literary, cultural, artistic, and pedagogical traditions for more than two millennia. Through some 2,200 carefully researched entries, scholars and students alike are provided with an in-depth treatment of all aspects of Virgil’s poetry, including the Greek and Roman literary traditions that inform his three great collections, the Eclogues, Georgics and Aeneid. Entries also reveal the reception of Virgil’s oeuvre in literature, art, and music from the moment each work appeared and transformed the Roman literary and intellectual world.
Contributors include top specialists in the literature of antiquity; as well as international scholars in medieval, Renaissance, early modern, and contemporary literary and cultural studies. The result of this unique collaborative effort is the most broad-ranging, meticulously researched, and up-to-date resource available today on a man whose imaginative works brought tears to Augustine, guided Dante through Hell, helped shape Milton’s Paradise Lost, and inspired Tennyson. The Virgil Encyclopedia provides innovative insights into a poet from the ancient world whose immeasurable influence on Western literature continues to the present day.
