About the Author

Hans-Peter Stahl is one of the most distinguished contemporary writers on classical literature. An authority on both Greece and Rome, his particular achievement is to reveal the internal logic of writers, imaginative and factual alike, in the political sphere. Stahl has written Propertius: 'Love' and 'War': Individual and State under Augustus (University of California Press, 1985) and Thucydides, Man's Place in History (Classical Press of Wales, 2003; original German edition, 1966). Hans-Peter Stahl has been for many years Andrew W. Mellon Professor of Classics at the University of Pittsburgh.


"Stahl's proposed reading of the Aeneid as poetry underpinning Augustus' power offers an engagingly written, extremely well-annotated, and, most importantly, original contribution to current scholarship on Vergil's epic." --Barbara Weinlich, University of Montana, Phoenix, Vol. 71 No. 1-2
