Meet the Author

Publius Vergilius Maro (70 BC - 19 BC) was a Roman poet, generally considered one of Rome's greatest. He is best known for his epic THE AENEID, but also composed THE ECOLOGUES and THE GEORGICS. Probably born in Cisalpine Gaul to a landowning family, Virgil was educated at Milan and Rome, focusing on philosophy. His health was poor and he was extremely shy, earning himself the nickname "maiden" for his behavior. Virgil died after a journey to Greece to revise his mostly complete AENEID. His wishes to destroy the poem after his death were ignored by his literary executors.
