Writer’s Quote Wednesday: Virgil

One of Rome’s greatest poets, Publius Vergilius Maro, known as Virgil (15 October, 70 BCE – 21 September, 19 BCE) wrote three of the most famous poems in Latin literature: the Eclogues (or Bucolics), the Georgics, and the epic poem Aeneid.

Virgil’s work has had a profound influence on Western literature, and Virgil appears as a main character in Dante’s Divine Comedy as Dante’s guide through Hell and Purgatory.
