Medea, a rather terrible witch, provides an ominous source, along with Cleopatra, for poor Dido who has a few ominous undertones herself. This site contains a play about Dido based on the story in the Aeneid. The play is in Italian as is much of the site.

There are also extensive links to all sorts of interesting Dido materials, many in English, and some gorgeous images of Dido from great painters as well as an abstract of the play in English.

The famous and oft-quoted prologue to Vergil's Roman epic. The final line-- "can immortal souls indeed harbor such terrible wrath? It is true enough that the story of Aeneas may be seen as a triumphant tale: Aeneas founds the city that shall, in time, become the most powerful in the western world.

The Aeneid [Annotated] (With Active Table of Contents)

But throughout his journey Aeneas encounters so much wrath, ira , both from mortals [Dido, Turnus, Mezentius] and immortals [Juno, Aeolus' winds, Allecto] that this violent, intemperate force threatens to color darkly our view of the poem. It is composed of 9, lines in dactylic hexameter.

The first six of the poem's twelve books tell the story of Aeneas's wanderings from Troy to Italy, and the poem's second half tells of the Trojans' ultimately victorious war upon the Latins, under whose name Aeneas and his Trojan followers are destined to be subsumed. The hero Aeneas was already known to Greco-Roman legend and myth, having been a character in the Iliad, written in the 8th century BC. Virgil took the disconnected tales of Aeneas's wanderings, his vague association with the foundation of Rome and a personage of no fixed characteristics other than a scrupulous pietas, and fashioned this into a compelling founding myth or national epic that at once tied Rome to the legends of Troy, explained the Punic wars, glorified traditional Roman virtues and legitimized the Julio-Claudian dynasty as descendants of the founders, heroes and gods of Rome and Troy.
