Author Bio: Virgil

Author Bio: Virgil

Publius Vergilius Maro (70 BC–19 BC), usually called Virgil or Vergil in English, was a Roman poet of the Augustan period. He is known for three major works of Latin literature, the Eclogues (or Bucolics), the Georgics, and the epic Aeneid. He is traditionally ranked as one of Rome’s greatest poets. His Aeneid has been considered the national epic of ancient Rome from the time of its composition to the present day. He was born in a small village near Mantua in northern Italy and attended school at Cremona, Milan, and Rome, where he studied mathematics, medicine, and rhetoric. He devoted his life, from 30 to 19 BC, to the composition of The Aeneid, the national epic of Rome.
