Many websites are devoted to the great Roman poet: David Wilson Okamura; UNC-Chapel Hill; University of Pennsylvania; Vergilian Society. The Digital Proceedings of the Virgil Society includes a searchable database of publications dating back to 1961. You can listen to recordings of excerpted passages (Latin as well as Dryden‘s translation). Project Perseus has Dryden‘s verse translation; John Conington made a prose version (1846); Ingo Gildenhard has a study text of 1-299. Servius’ 4th c. commentary has recently been published in a stand-alone volume on Book IV.
In 1945, Thomas David McMahon wrote a thesis on “Virgil’s Indebtedness for the Dido Episode,” including Apollonius of Rhodes, Naevius, and Catullus. William Harris (Middlebury) created a scenario for a Studio Drama Performance. Richard Heinze dedicated a chapter of Virgil’s Epic Technique to Dido, as did Eve Adler in Vergil’s Empire: Political Thought in the Aeneid. Here are some lovely reflections on Carthage in verse and song. Wolfgang Polleichtner’s dissertation on Aeneas’ emotions has tantalizing chapter titles like: “How to Enter a Poem and to Suffer Shipwreck Epically.”
