The Aeneid

eBook (ePub)
(12 Ratings)
Price: $2.99
The Aeneid is an epic poem, written by Virgil that tells the legendary story of Aeneas, a Trojan who travelled to Italy, where he became the ancestor of the Romans. The first six of the poem's twelve books tell the story of Aeneas's wanderings from Troy to Italy, and the poem's second half tells of the Trojans' ultimately victorious war upon the Latins, under whose name Aeneas and his Trojan followers are destined to be subsumed. Virgil took the disconnected tales of Aeneas' wanderings, his vague association with the foundation of Rome and a personage of no fixed characteristics other than a scrupulous piety, and fashioned this into a compelling founding myth or nationalist epic that at once tied Rome to the legends of Troy, explained the Punic wars, glorified traditional Roman virtues and legitimized the Julio-Claudian dynasty as descendants of the founders, heroes and gods of Rome and Troy.

    Don't be fooled by cheap imitations. This is the real Virgil and his lyrical account of the events that transpired after the fall of Troy. (Beware of Greeks bearing gifts) Read this work and discover why Virgil was the poet laureate of Italy, only to be replaced by Dante. And read it, too, to discover why Beatrice asked Virgil to guide her Beloved through the treacherous Inferno ... Sylvain Reynard Jan 15, 2016
