In Search of a Homeland : The Story of the Aeneid Paperback

Illustrated by Ian Andrew


Aeneas flees from the sacked city of Troy, entrusted by his goddess-mother Venus with a daunting mission: to find a new homeland for his people.

Over 2000 years after Virgil wrote his epic The Aeneid, Penelope Lively retells Aeneas' story with pace poignancy and drama, while Ian Andrew's illustrations bring the characters beautifully to life.

Together they create an introduction to The Aeneid which takes its place alongside Rosemary Sutcliff's classic retellings of Homer's The Iliad and The Odyssey.

The book includes a Latin pronunciation guide and a map of Aeneas' long, arduous, death-defying journey.
