185. (David Ferry)

The post on the Aeneid has been temporarily removed, as I prepare a review essay on Ferry’s translation. I hope soon to write here on Ferry’s Horace.



One thought on “185. (David Ferry)

  1. I am five books into Ferry’s Aeneid, and I’m glad I read this: it makes me more sympathetic to some of his insistent repetitions than I had been. I’m still not entirely convinced by his Virgil—the way his clauses pile up on each other makes the poem feel messy and out of breath—but I think I see better what he was going for on the whole. Thank you.
