Taking into account that we were needing to go with the most budget driven options, free preferably.
I tentatively thought of purchasing In Search of a Homeland: The Story of the Aeneid ~ Penelope Lively for Daisy; however, Bookdepository.com didn't have it in stock so we just left it and used what we had.
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 I 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.
