Virgil, the most famous of Roman poets, has fired the imagination of generations of writers, poets and readers. He has been the classic poet for two thousand years. In this biography, Peter Levi uses Virgil's poetry - the Eclogues, Georgics and the Aeneid - as well as historical and archaeological evidence to discard many of the myths surrounding Virgil's life and reveal the life of a poet whose powerful imagination helped shape the epic vision of modern man.
