David Crump, Virgil. The Aeneid : Virgil's greatest hits. Quid Pro Books, c2010.

PA6807.A5C78 2010

 

This version of The Aeneid, translated, condensed, and explained by Professor David Crump, uses rhyme and a lively presentation to honor the spirit and true intent of Virgil.  It is now condensed to its essential and best parts, with short bridge notes to explain the third or so of the original that is omitted. Explanatory sidenotes and chapter guides place the work and its famous author in historical, thematic, and political context, and it has been translated for the modern ear, complete with the rhythms and rhymes associated with poetry today.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Elizabeth Price Foley. The law of life and death. Harvard University Press, 2011.

KF3827.D4F65 2011

 

This book examines the many, and surprisingly ambiguous, legal definitions of what counts as human life and death.  The author explores the most contentious legal issues of our time—including cryogenics, feticide, abortion, physician-assisted suicide, brain death, vegetative and minimally conscious states, informed consent, and advance directives—across constitutional, contract, tort, property, and criminal law.
