More About Virgil
Virgil, born in 70 B.C., is best remembered for his masterpiece, The Aeneid. He earned great favor by portraying Augustus as a descendant of the half-god, half-man Aeneas. Although Virgil swore on his deathbed thatThe Aeneidwas incomplete and unworthy, it has been considered one of the greatest works of Western literature for more than two thousand years. David West(1926-2013) was a leading classical scholar and a professor at Newcastle University. The Guardian stated that his translation of theAeneid is"remarkably true to the Latin, and has brought Virgil s epic to life for a generation of modern English readers." A leading figure in the resurence of interest in the ancient world, he was President of the Classical Association in 1995, and a Vice-President of the Association for Latin Teaching."
Virgil was born in 70 and died in 19.
