About this product
- DescriptionFrom the fall of Troy to the deadly Harpies, Aeneas' epic voyage is filled with tragedy, destruction and omens of danger. As he recounts his adventures to Dido, who gives him sanctuary, they fall in love. But the Gods intervene and Aeneas realizes their relationship cannot last.
- Author BiographyPublius Vergilius Maro (70-19BC), known as Virgil, was born in Mantua in the last days of the Roman Republic. In his comparatively short life he became the supreme poet of his age, whose work, the Aeneid, gave Rome a great national epic equal to the Greeks', celebrating the city's origins and the creation of its empire. In addition to this he was also the author of the Eclogues and the Georgics.
