Summary "In this work of original scholarship, Peter Heslin argues that paintings of the Trojan War, public and private, were a collective visual resource for selected poems by Virgil, Horace, and Propertius; in so doing, he reconstructs a world in which Augustan-era art served as inspiration for some of the greatest works of Roman literature"--Provided by publisher.
