The Queen of Carthage

The Queen of Carthage

This collection deals with the torment of thwarted love. One of the most famous classical stories in the canon is by the Roman poet Virgil. Virgil mythologized the tragic love of Dido, founder and first queen of Carthage, for the Roman Aeneas in his epic Aeneid. The gods ordered Aeneas to found Rome and he duly left Dido behind. Virgil had her in her grief utter a curse that led to the brutal Punic Wars between Carthage and Rome. In her anguish, she then burned herself to death on a funeral pyre. The tale has resonated down the centuries.
