This enduring masterpiece tells of the epic quest of Aenas, who flees the ashes of Troy to found a new civilization: Rome. A unique hero, Aenas struggles and fights not for personal gain but for a civilization that will exist in the far future. Caught between passion and fate, his vision would change the course of the Western world.

Virgil, Rome’s greatest poet, turned a mythical legend into a national epic that would survive Rome’s collapse to become the most influential book Rome contributes to Western culture.

    " I really liked this play. It was interesting to see the Trojan War from a different view point. Though this could easily be called the Roman version of The Odysessy, it doesn't feel like a rip off to me. I love the time spent with Dido in Carthage and how Virgil plants the beginning of the Roman society. "

    " Admittedly, I read this at high school and found it the most painfully boring book ever. I don't know if I could bring myself to read it even now, just to see if it had improved with my age... "
