Less widely read than the first half of the epic poem, these books offer many interesting aspects of their own. With the survivors of Troy on Italian soil, they now attempt to make the land their own. There will be a stalwart female warrior, a tour of the primordial site of Rome, and a moment where pious Aeneas loses his cool. And Book IX will provide, in a provocative context, the line chosen for inscription at the 9/11 Memorial & Museum: No day shall erase you from the memory of time.

This seminar takes place Thursdays at 11:00 AM on the Zoom Meetings platform:
