The Eve Adler Department of Classics will sponsor a marathon reading of Vergil’s <i>Aeneid<i>. The Latin epic about the destruction of one civilization and the founding of another, Vergil’s <i>Aeneid<i> recounts the wanderings of the hero Aeneas from the ruins of Troy to the shores of Italy, and describes with moving detail the wars he must fight in order to establish a line of leaders that will eventually lead to the Roman Caesars. The reading, open to all, will continue through dusk each evening. Translation, laurel wreath and baklava provided; please contact the Classics Department to sign up for a reading time or visit go/epic.
The reading will be held on the plaza, and move to the vestibule in the event of rain.
