More About Virgil
Virgil (70 B.C-19 B.C) is regarded as the greatest Roman poet, known for his epic, The Aeneid(written about 29 B.C. unfinished). Virgil was born on October 15, 70 B.C., in a small village near Mantua in Northern Italy. He attended school at Cremona and Milan, and then went to Rome, where he studied mathematics, medicine and rhetoric, and completed his studies in Naples. Between 42 and 37 B.C. Virgil composed pastoral poems known as Ecologues, and spent years on the Georgics.At the urging of Augustus Caesar, Virgil began to write The Aeneid, a poem of the glory of Rome under Caesars rule. Virgil devoted the remaining time of his life, from 30 to 19 B.C., to the composition of The Aeneid, the national epic of Rome and to glory of the Empire. The poet died in 19 B.C of a fever he contracted on his visit to Greece with the Emperor. It is said that the poet had instructed his executor Varius to destroy The Aeneid, but Augustus ordered Varius to ignore this request, and the poem was published.
Virgil was born in 70 and died in 19.

When Maecenas asked Virgil Publio Maron for the epic poems about the great foundation of Rome, nobody should tought that we will read it again, 2.000 years later. As one of the new edition of the poem, one of the firsts in this new millenium, this is a book you must read to could say "Yes, i'm human". Homo sum, nihil humanum a me alienum puto, said Terenzius, and in the Aenedes you can find everything. Choose the edition you prefer, the costless or the gold hardcovered one, but read it. If you have not, start running to the nearest place you can find it. Your copy will arrive you, as written by hand by the emanuens of Maecenas, the hand-writer monks.
