about this book

Out of the last hours of Virgil's life and the final stirrings of his consciousness, Broch fashioned one of the great works of 20th century modernism, a book that embraces an entire world and renders it with an immediacy that is at once sensual and profound. The Death of Virgil is part historical novel and part prose poem--and always an intensely musical and immensely evocative meditation on the relation between life and death, the ancient and the modern.

"The Death of Virgil represents the only genuine technical advance that fiction has made since Ulysses."--George Steiner
