Highly acclaimed author Ursula K. Le Guin lends a resonant voice to a pivotal yet often overlooked character of Virgil's The Aeneid. Born into peace and freedom, Lavinia is stunned to learn that she will be the cause of a great war - or so the prophecies and omens claim. Her fate is sealed, however, when she meets a man from Troy.

    " This book came right when I was in the middle of an Aeneid obsession. It was the perfect complement to Virgil's masterpiece, a retelling of the latter part of the story through Lavinia's eyes, written in LeGuin's exquisite, crisp prose. "

    " Possibly the last novel by my favorite author, Lavinia made me feel as though I was inside a Kurosawa film or a late Beethoven quartet. "

    " Good book! I recommend having a copy of the Aenid by your side so you can look up the parts of the poem she is referencing (books 6-12) to see how she interprets what Virgil has to say. Now I want to read Dante Aligheiri's Inferno! "
