The Aeneid ... our way

There are so many options for going through the Aeneid, yet I'm only going to repost the links for the things we used for our go through the Aeneid ~ Virgil ..... since you asked E☺
Taking into account that we were needing to go with the most budget driven options, free preferably.
Our local library did not have a copy of the Aeneid to loan, and I did not want to wait on an inter-loan copy - for us it's a case of miss the cue and we do not seem to get back to the books missed.
  • Free online lecture:
  • Abridged audio download   (purchased on sale in 2012)
  • A quick overview on Educational Portal (for Daisy)  … which I won’t link as the children and I thought it contained a lot of ‘unclothed’ paintings, more than any of the other e.p clips we’ve watched to date .
  • Book   a free kindle edition and selected due to the more poetic styled writing by Dryden 
(For someone wanting a more story styled (free) kindle version, this one may fit)

If I was really wanting to go the full depth with the Aeneid, and had known of the learning surge Bobs was going to invest in …  I’d have been more organised and scouted around the 2nd hand book sales to purchase a hard copy of Fitzgerald’s translation.

We’re happy with what we’ve used though.

Tracy thanks for leaving a comment here - I just found it now :D

Sir Percy was named after the Scarlett Pimpernel in Baroness Orczy's book of the same title ;)

and we in turn are thinking of, and praying, for you all {hugs}
