The story of what happens to the survivors of Troy after the Greek conquest. Aeneus leads a ragtag band of Trojan survivors in search of a homeland. In his quest he will find doomed love and even walk into the mouth of the Underworld. This is a classic of western literature and is a great read, if you're a fan of Roman literature. Chances are, if you're still in school, you'll read this in high school or college. But, if not, give it a shot because this is a classic!

This is the story of Aeneas and his flight from Troy and the building of the city of Rome. It is a translation of Virgil's poetry by Allen Mandelbaum. Even with the translation it takes a lot of effort to understand the meaning of his verse. But it is a classic!
