This ancient text was immensely popular when it was first transcribed, for it offered a popular account and interpretation of the Roman Empire at its greatest moments. We read it today both for the historical and psychological insight we can glean from it. Through the story of Aeneas, the founder of Rome, we learn how a great people saw themselves. This concise supplement to Virgil's Aeneid helps students understand the overall structure of the work, actions and motivations of the characters, and the social and cultural perspectives of the author.
