New Essay at Commonweal: Review of Seamus Heaney’s Aeneid Book VI

My review of Seamus Heaney’s translation of the Aeneid‘s sixth book is out in the January 6 issue of Commonweal Magazine. Heaney died three years before the publication of the volume, which fittingly narrates Aeneas’ descent into the underworld to visit his dead father. Head over to Commonweal for more on Heaney’s Anglo-Saxon version of Rome’s imperial epic.
