In Search of a Homeland Zusammenfassung

In Search of a Homeland: The Story of the "Aeneid" Penelope Lively

Aeneas flees from the sacked city of Troy, entrusted by his goddess-mother Venus with a daunting mission: to find a new homeland for his people. Over 2000 years after Virgil wrote his epic The Aeneid, Penelope Lively retells Aeneas' story with pace poignancy and drama, while Ian Andrew's illustrations bring the characters beautifully to life. Together they create an introduction to The Aeneid which will take its place alongside Rosemary Sutcliff's classic retellings of Homer's Iliad and Odyssey. The book includes a Latin pronunciation guide and a map of Aeneas' long, arduous, death-defying journey!
