Irish Texts Society Subsidiary Series Volume 03: A New Introduction to Imtheachta Aeniasa.
SS3. Erich Poppe A New Introduction to Imtheachta Aeniasa: the Irish Aeneid- the Classical Epic from pagination: Imtheachta Aeniasa, originally edited for the Society by George Calder (Main Series 3), Professor Erich Poppe of the University of Marburg argues that the Irish version of the Aeneid was perceived as a historical narrative rather than as a literary epic or mere entertainment. In forming his judgement, he discusses the literary style of the Irish adaptation and examines its characteristics in the context of the wider vernacular narrative tradition. He concludes that Imtheachta Aeniasa can tell its modern readers much about the mentality and interests of its medieval audience.
