Salvete Omnes!

Hello and welcome to Tros Anchisiade, the home of my Aeneid translation project!

What you're seeing is the (boring) beginnings of what will (hopefully) be a successful and interesting community. I will be translating all twelve books of Vergil's Aeneid and posting my work here, a few lines at a time, with translator's notes, analysis, and other commentary.

The translation itself is certainly my greatest goal, but I also intend to create here an informative resource for other Latin students and give non-students an opportunity to better understand and appreciate this classic. To this end, everything will be kept public (barring any ugly plagiarism incidents), and I invite anyone with an interest in Latin or the Aeneid to watch this community. I also welcome any comments or criticisms -- I'm only human, so there's no guarantee I won't make a mistake somewhere!

I'll start posting the good stuff soon. Until then, valete! ^_^
