Aeneas loses campanions attempting to defend Cassandra, witnesses the death of Polites and Priam at the hands of Pyrrhus, and, restrained from killing Helen by the intervention of his divine mother Venus, makes his escape from Troy with his father and son.All the main elements of the Ilioupersis (sack of Troy) are included in vivid narrative. Book II contains some of the best Latin poetry ever written and thus makes an ideal introduction to the Aeneid.

At the same time it encourages them to consider the sound of the poetry and appreciate the emotional impact of the story as Virgil portrays it. The edition includes general introduction, select bibliography, notes and full vocabulary- appendices deal with metre and scansion.
