Time Spent With the Harvard Classics: Virgil – Aeneid, Book Four

On previous postings related to this work, we have discussed both Virgil and the Aeneid.  Those postings might be revisited to understand the context of this fourth book looked at below.  For now and without ruining the telling found below, the Queen of Carthage, Dido, falls further, completely and totally in love with Aeneas, the Trojan prince, but feels it’s not her right to love this guy.  And so ensues a tale about the complexities of love and Gods.  Funny how times haven’t changed all that much, right?

The Fourth Book of the Aeneid may be read here:


Alternatively, this may be listened to in an audiobook format here:
