Purchased on Mighty Ape

A very informative book, just what I was looking for

"Highly readable account of the world's greatest adventures. " Purchased on Mighty Ape

This is a highly readable account of the world's greatest adventures. It includes the fall of Troy, the doomed love of Dido, Queen of Carthage and the founding of Rome. Great epic adventure story which can be thought of a sequel to Homer's “Odyssey”.

5 stars"

This book is a need for all who want to study classical studies at school or university, and Mighty Ape has the best price!

Following the character of Aeneas and his journey from Troy after it fell due to the war, to the founding of Rome, this novel, although old, is a great for any interested in mythology.


Virgil's Aeneid, inspired by Homer and inspiration for Dante and Milton, is an immortal poem at the heart of Western life and culture. Virgil took as his hero Aeneas, legendary survivor of the fall of Troy and father of the Roman race, and in telling a story of dispossession and defeat, love and war, he portrayed human life in all its nobility and suffering.

Author Biography

Virgil (70-19BC) studied rhetoric and philosophy in Rome where he became a court poet. As well as The Aeneid, his Eclogues earned him the reputation as the finest Latin poet. Before his retirement, David West taught Classics at the University of Newcastle.
