    I have the Dryden Aeneid, which I used when we were reading and discussing it online several years ago. By coincidence, I was considering reading another translation which I already I had before I got the Dryden, but never read. It was done by Charles J Billson. I believe it’s a prose translation (haven’t dug it out of the box yet) and if so, it likely will not be as pleasing as the Dryden. In the mean time, I’m considering getting a Dryden translation of the Iliad (a book which I somehow failed to obtain in any translation) and an Alexander Pope translation of the Odyssey ( I only have a prose translation done by George Herbert Palmer. Again, there’s nothing wrong with it as far as I can see, but it’s prose, and the Pope, viewable online, is much more satisfying).
