Vergil's Aeneid has long remained a staple of the Western literary canon. The essays in this volume discuss many different aspects of Vergil's work, including the historical awareness of Rome's future greatness, the significant psychological and ethical questions on fate and free-will, personal glory versus responsibility by those who lead, and the profound influence the Aeneid has had on Christian authors such as St. Augustine and Dante Alighieri. Readers should find it accessible, even without knowledge of the poem in its original Latin. To make this volume more accessible to general readers, wherever Latin, Greek, or Italian appears, an English translation immediately follows.
