The Poems of Virgil, Translated into English Verse - James Rhoades

This is some heady poetic froth. After reading a dry, dull and boring chapter of my Bisys Insurance Exam Cram Book, Virgil swoops in to rescue me from brain death with his Aeneid, rendered in chantlike English verse by James Rhoades. If you're interested in Virgil's Poetry(and the Eclogues and Georgics are also here), this is definitely THE version to lay hands on.
