19 BC
The Aeneid follows the legend of Aeneas from the last day of Troy up to Aeneas' victory and the fusion of Trojans and Latins into one people.
The content of the poem is as follows:
Book I : Juno is unable to forget her hatred towards the remnant of the Trojan people, and a storm, arranged by the goddess, shatters Aeneas' ship as he escapes from the fallen city, and compels him to put ashore in Africa, near Carthage. Aided by Venus, his mother, Aeneas receives a warm welcome from the queen of the city, Dido. Dido is also an exile, and responds sympathetically to Aeneas' plight, asking him to tell his story. (Right : Scene from Vat.Lat.3867 : The Tempest)
Book II contains Aeneas' account : during the destruction of Troy, aided by divine protection, he had succeeded in fleeing alone with his aged father, Anchises, his little son, and the penates (his household gods and the symbol of a race's continuity). However he has lost his wife, Creusa.

William Shakespeare Publius Vergilius Maro (also known by the Anglicised forms of his name as Virgil or Vergil ) (October 15, 70 BCE – September 21, 19 BCE) was a classical Roman poet , best known for three major works—the Eclogues (or Bucolics ), the Georgics , and the Aeneid —although several minor poems are also attributed to him. Virgil came to be regarded as one of Rome's greatest poets. His Aeneid can be considered a national epic of Rome and has been extremely popular from its publication to the present day. His work has influenced Western literature. His epic, the Aeneid , had followed the literary model of Homer 's epic poems Iliad and Odyssey . The story is about Aeneas's search for a new homeland and his war to found a city. This type of character is similar to Western heroes in the books of Owen Wister and Louis L'Amour Virgil's father was a wealthy landowner, who could afford a good education for his son that included schools in

Search Virgil's Latin works Query scope: Eclogues only Georgics only Aeneid only Appendix Vergiliana Maffeo Vegio's Supplementum Look for: How to enter search queries For the sake of consistency, the texts used by this search engine always use u for v and i for j . If your search yields no results, check to make sure that your search doesn't include v or j To find parts of words, use an asterisk (*) to represent missing parts of the word. For example, if you enter "mund*" it will match "mundus", "mundi", etc. Similarly, "*que" would find "quisque", "atque", etc. The search query can either be one or more words (a simple search) separated by spaces, or a boolean expression. All searches are performed in a case insensitive manner: for example, entering "DOMUS" is identical to entering "domus", "Domus" or even "DoMUs".
Boolean Searches For more control over the search query, you can use a boolean expression. If you enter the word or between two search words (with a space between each word and the "or") it will find any line which contains either the first word, or the second word, or both. For example, "aeneas or dido" would find lines containing the word "aeneas" or the word "dido", or both. If instead of the word or you entered and it would match only lines which contained both the word "aeneas" and the word "dido". Note that this would be the same as a simple search for "aeneas dido" because if the boolean commands are omitted, it defaults to assuming an

VIRGIL V IRGIL , the greatest of the Roman poets, was born at Andes, a village near Mantua, in the first consulate of Pompeius and Crassus, 70 B.C. He was about thirty years younger than Julius Caesar and Lucretius; a little older than Augustus, Maecenas, and Horace. It is thought that his name was written VERGILIUS No life recorded offers a more complete dedication to one great purpose, or a more serene and unbroken concentration of powers on the poetic office. The poet was tall, dark, and somewhat rustic in air; modest, shy, retiring in disposition, and somewhat proud; a confirmed invalid, and never married. His life and his verse were pure and refined, full of a deep religious melancholy; he lived apart from all the storms and distractions around him, both public and private. Candor, fides, pietasi.e.

  • Born: 15 October 70 B.C. Birthplace: Near Mantua, Italy Died: 21 September 19 B.C. Best Known As: Author of the Aeneid
Name at birth: Publius Vergilius Maro The most famous poet of ancient Rome, Virgil (or Vergil) wrote the Aeneid , one of the greatest epic poems in human history. Raised on a farm in northern Italy, he made his way to Rome as an adult and gained fame for his collections of poems Eclogues (around 39 B.C.) and Georgics (29 B.C.). A clear picture of his life is not possible, but Virgil was apparently famous during his lifetime and had friends in high places, notably the emperor Augustus . The Aeneid is Virgil's masterpiece, a national epic that tells the story of the heroic Aeneas and the founding of Rome. The long poem is often compared to Homer 's the Iliad and the Odyssey , Greek epics combining history and mythology. Virgil died before finishing the work, but it was published (tradition has it that he wanted it destroyed after his death) and became a revered text for centuries. In medieval Europe Virgil became an almost mystical personage, with magic powers attributed to him and his work (he is used as the guide to Hell in Dante 's Inferno ). The Renaissance revived scholarly study of the

Virgil (70 B.C-19 B.C) , regarded as the greatest Roman poet, known for his epic, the Aeneid (written about 29 B.C.E), which had taken its literary model from Homer 's epic poems Iliad and Odyssey Virgil was born on October 15, 70 B.C.E., in a small village near Mantua in Northern Italy. Publius Vergilius Maro, or Virgil has influenced Western literature for two millennia, but little is known about the man himself. His father was a prosperous landowner, described variously as a "potter" and a "courier", who could afford thorough education for the future poet. Virgil attended school at Cremona and Milan, and then went to Rome, where he studied mathematics, medicine and rhetoric, and completed his studies in Naples. He entered literary circles as an "Alexandrian," the name given to a group of poets who sought inspiration in the sophisticated work of third-century Greek poets also known as Alexandrians. After the battle of Philippi in 42 B.C. Virgil's property was confiscated for veterans. According to some sources it was afterwards restored at the command of Octavian (later styled Augustus). In the following years Virgil spent most of his time in Campania and Sicily, but he had also a house at Rome.

The theatre pictured above is at Pompeii. Perhaps Virgil's famous story of Aeneas was brought to life here and in other theatres in Italy. Virgil, the famous ancient Roman poet, was born Publius Vergilius Maro at Andes, Italy, on the Ides of October in 70 B.C. Here is a mosaic of him... Many people like to spell his name with an "e" as Vergil because that spelling is more like the Latin name, Vergilius. Virgil spent his early life in Andes which is not far from Mantua. After he received the toga virilis at age 15, he went to Cremona to be educated. Then he went to Milan and Rome. Virgil first appeared to take an interest in law, but soon turned to philosophy and literature. He then returned to his father's farm in 51 B.C. where he continued his studies for the next ten years. After his father's farm was confiscated, he went back to Rome. Virgil's first work of literature is known as the Eclogues , the ten short pastoral poems containing dialogues between shepherds, shepherdesses, and other rustic figures. This work attracted the attention of a patron of literature named Maecenas. Maecenas had so much interest and confidence in Virgil's poetry that he decided to introduce him to Octavian. The Ecolgues became very successful. However, Virgil preferred to remain apart from his admirers.
