The Aeneid, by Virgil

Translated by Robert Fagles.

“Fleeing the ashes of Troy, Aeneas, Achilles’ mighty foe in The Iliad, begins an incredible journey to fulfill his destiny. His voyage will take him through stormy seas, entangle him in a tragic love affair, and lure him into the world of the dead itself – all the way tormented by the vengeful Juno, Queen of the Gods. Ultimately, he reaches the promised land of Italy where, after bloody battles and with high hopes, he founds the Roman people. An unsparing portrait of a man caught between love, duty and fate, The Aeneid redefines passion, nobility and courage for our times.”
