The masterpiece of Rome’s greatest poet, Virgil’s Aeneid has inspired generations of readers and holds a central place in Western literature. The epic tells the story of a group of refugees from the ruined city of Troy, whose attempts to reach a promised land in the West are continually frustrated by the hostile goddess Juno. Finally reaching Italy, their leader Aeneas is forced to fight a bitter war against the natives to establish the foundations from which Rome is destined to rise. This magnificent poem, in the modern translation by Cecil Day Lewis, features a reading by David Collins, star of many BBC Radio 4 plays and documentaries, short stories such as Out of the Burning House by Marina Warner, and poetry on Poetry Please and Time for Verse. For Naxos AudioBooks he has read The Spanish Bride.
