Summary:
Aeneas flees the ashes of Troy to found the city of Rome and change forever the course of the Western world - and literature as well. Virgil's "Aeneid" is as eternal as Rome itself, a sweeping epic of arms and heroism - and a portrait of a man caught between love and duty, human feeling and the force of fate - that has influenced writers for over 2,000 years.
