John Conington’s three-volume edition of The Works of Virgil, begun in 1852, has long been unavailable except in rare second–hand sets. The whole work is now being reissued in six affordable paperbacks, with new introductions setting the commentary in its context. Well into the twentieth century Conington’s Virgil remained the sine qua non for school and undergraduate students and their teachers; Conington’s commentary is remarkably close and uncompromising in its engagement with the detail of Virgil’s Latin, as well as its literary sensitivity; it still has much to offer the modern reader.

John Conington was Corpus Christi Professor of Latin in Oxford.

Philip Hardie is a Senior Research Fellow and Honorary Professor of Latin at Trinity College, Cambridge, and author of 'Virgil’s Aeneid: Cosmos and Imperium' (1986), 'Virgil’s Epic Successors' (1993) and 'Ovid’s Poetics of Illusion' (2002).
