Teacher Guide: The Aeneid by Virgil

Linking his work with the Homeric epics, Virgil sings a hymn to Aeneas, the legendary founder of Rome. Born of Venus, brave in battle (second only to Hektor), and already a recognized figure in the Trojan Cycle, Aeneas is a fitting hero.  In the face of Juno's wrath and cruel tricks of Fate, Aeneas and his fellow Trojan survivors wander in search of a new home. Aeneas pledges to honor the gods if they will grant him safe passage to Italy and bless his settlement there.
