Discover the birth of the Roman civilization


- +

With imagination and wordsmithing, Virgil created the Aeneid, an epic Latin poem focused on a character from the Iliad, Aeneas. The Aeneid follows Aeneas and his companions as they travel from Troy to Italy, prompt the Punic Wars, and eventually found Rome. Love, duty, leadership, and tragedy are the harmony underneath the poem's melody line. Translated by Robert Fitzgerald.
