Author’s Introduction: Imagine if Homer, Virgil, Dante, Chaucer, and the other great poets of ancient Greece, Rome, and the Middle Ages had been given the gift, not only to peer into the twenty-first century, but to correspond with we who live in that most confusing and rudderless of centuries. Had it been in their power to do both of those things, what might they say to us? How would they advise us to live our lives? What wisdom from their experience and from their timeless poems might they choose to pass down to us?Virgil: On Courage
Could you, citizens of the twenty-first century, do what Aeneas did? Could you not only learn his courage, but put it into practice? Does your age even understand what such courage means?
RTWT, it’s worth it.
