The Aeneid for Boys and Girls by Alfred J. Church. This story recounts the fascinating tale of Aeneas, the legendary ancestor of Romulus, who escaped from the burning city of Troy and wandered the Mediterranean for years before settling in Italy. His adventures onece arriving in Latium are no less interesting since he must fight the jealous suitor Turnus for the hand of the princess Lavinia. Patterned after the Iliad and the Odyssey, the Aeneid was described in an epic poem by Virgil to glorify the imperial city of Rome. Alfred Church’s retelling of Virgil’s Aeneid is a great introduction to Aeneas, who escaped from the burning city of Troy and founded Rome. After reading this novel, students will have a good grasp on the characters and story of the Aeneid and be ready to tackle the more difficult prose in Virgil. This Paper edition includes: The Horse of Wood – The Sack of Troy – Aeneas and Anchises – Of The Voyage of Aeneas – The Shipwreck – Carthage – Dido – The Funeral Games of Anchises – The Burning of the Ships — The Coming to Italy – In Italy – The Plots of Juno – The Gathering of the Chiefs – King Evander – The Arms of Aeneas – Nisus and Euryalus – The Battle at the Camp – The Battle on the Shore – The Council – The Deeds and Death of Camilla – The Broken Treaty – The Death of Turnus – Afterwards
