The Fourth Book of Virgil's Aeneid and the Ninth Book of Voltaire's Henriad (Esprios Classics) Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

The Aeneid (Latin: Aeneis) is a Latin epic poem, written by Virgil between 29 and 19 BC, that tells the legendary story of Aeneas, a Trojan who travelled to Italy, where he became the ancestor of the Romans.

It comprises 9,896 lines in dactylic hexameter. La Henriade is an epic poem of 1723 written by the French Enlightenment writer and philosopher Voltaire.

According to Voltaire himself, the poem concerns and was written in honour of the life of Henry IV of France, and is a celebration of his life.

The ostensible subject is the siege of Paris in 1589 by Henry III in concert with Henry of Navarre, soon to be Henry IV, but its themes are the twin evils of religious fanaticism and civil discord.
