The Vergil project

The Vergil project: Resources for Stu­dents, Teach­ers, and Read­ers of Vergil 
The Vergil Project is a resource for stu­dents, teach­ers, and read­ers of Vergil's Aeneid. It offers an on-line hyper­text linked to inter­pre­tive mate­ri­als of var­i­ous kinds. These include basic infor­ma­tion about gram­mar, syn­tax, and dic­tion; sev­er­al com­men­taries; an appa­ra­tus criti­cus; help with scan­sion; and other resources. 

The text

The dis­play text that appears on the left side of the screen is that of the old OCT by Hirtzel (1900), with mod­i­fi­ca­tions. Each word is linked to a vari­ety of resources that can be select­ed from the side­bar. The text ini­tial­ly dis­played is always the first twenty-five lines of the poem. The user can then nav­i­gate to anoth­er book and line num­ber by using the two slid­er bars that appear at the top of the screen, above the text and resources.
