Alma Phoebe: Lunar References in Virgil’s Aeneid
The moon and lunar phenomena are frequently referenced in Virgil's Aeneid. Close study of these allusions reveals that the poet employs lunar imagery as a key element in his depiction of the characters of both the Carthaginian Dido and the Volscian Camilla, in particular the deliberately crafted juxtaposition between the two women.
