Aeneid

The Aeneid is an epic poem written by the Roman poet Publius Vergilius Maro, known in English simply as Virgil (70-19 BC). Divided into twelve books, the Aeneid tells the story of the Trojan hero Aeneas. After the capture and sack of Troy, Aeneas led a small group of survivors westward, eventually settling in Latium, Italy.
