Great Works: The Aeneid by Virgil
We're blowing the dust off an epic masterpiece for this month's Great Works selection. You've probably read Homer and maybe even some Sophocles, but odds are you're unfamiliar with Virgil's magnum opus, The Aeneid. According to our guests, it's one of the best stories the classical world has to offer. In other words, if you liked Homer and Sophocles but haven't read Virgil, you're missing out. Incidentally, Virgil also appeared in the New York Times on the same day this discussion aired.—Original airdate: 7/6/2009
