From the award-winning translator of The Iliad and The Odyssey comes a brilliant new translation of Virgil's great epic Fleeing the ashes of Troy, Aeneas, Achilles’ mighty foe in the Iliad, begins an incredible journey to fulfill his destiny as the founder of Rome. His voyage will take him through stormy seas, entangle him in a tragic love affair, and lure him into the world of the dead itself--all the way tormented by the vengeful Juno, Queen of the Gods. Ultimately, he reaches the promised land of Italy where, after bloody battles and with high hopes, he founds what will become the Roman empire. An unsparing portrait of a man caught between love, duty, and fate, the Aeneid redefines passion, nobility, and courage for our times. Robert Fagles, whose acclaimed translations of Homer’s Iliad and Odyssey were welcomed as major publishing events, brings the Aeneid to a new generation of readers, retaining all of the gravitas and humanity of the original Latin as well as its powerful blend of poetry and myth. Featuring an illuminating introduction to Virgil’s world by esteemed scholar Bernard Knox, this volume lends a vibrant new voice to one of the seminal literary achievements of the ancient world. For more than seventy years, Penguin has been the leading publisher of classic literature in the English-speaking world. With more than 1,700 titles, Penguin Classics represents a global bookshelf of the best works throughout history and across genres and disciplines.

Das Stürmische, Wilde und Raue der nordenglischen Moor- und Heidelandschaft hat sich tief eingeprägt in die Charaktere dieses Romans, der im Dezember 1847 erschien, ein Jahr nur, bevor Emily Brontë dreißigjährig an Schwindsucht starb. Niemand legt den von Ingrid Rein kongenial übersetzten Band aus den Händen, bevor er weiß, wie's ausgeht: "Ist Mr. Heathcliff ein Mensch? Wenn ja, ist er verrückt? Und wenn nicht, ist er ein Teufel?" Sturmhöhe ist ein dramatisches, stellenweise grausig-geniales Stück Weltliteratur.
