Virgil's "Aeneid": A Retelling in Prose
by David Bruce
This book is a retelling of Virgil's "Aeneid" in novel form.
The "Aeneid" is well worth reading. In addition to being the epic of ancient Rome, the "Aeneid" contains the fullest surviving ancient account of the fall of Troy. It also contains the story of the tragic love affair between Aeneas and Dido, the queen of Carthage—a story that Virgil apparently invented.
