Books by Virgil

About the Author

Publius Vergilius Maro, called Virgil in English, was a Roman poet of the Augustan period. He wrote three poems central to Latin literature: the Eclogues, the Georgics, and the Aeneid. Even in Virgil's lifetime he was considered one of Rome's greatest poets. According to tradition, Virgil died in the harbor at Brundisium on September 21, 19 BC. Augustus ordered Virgil's literary executors to disregard Virgil's wish that the manuscript of the Aeneid be burned, instead ordering it published with few editorial changes.
