  1. 1. The Aeneid by Virgil

    This epic poem tells the story of Aeneas, a Trojan who travels to Italy, where he becomes the ancestor of the Romans. It includes a series of prophecies about Rome's future and the deeds of heroic individuals, and is divided into two sections, the first illustrating the hero's journey and the second detailing the wars and battles that ensue as Aeneas attempts to establish a new home in Italy. The narrative is deeply imbued with themes of duty, fate, and divine intervention.

  2. 2. Salammbô by Gustave Flaubert

    Set in ancient Carthage during the Mercenary War, the novel follows the tumultuous events that ensue after the First Punic War, as unpaid mercenary soldiers rebel against the wealthy city they once fought for. Amidst the backdrop of political intrigue and brutal warfare, a passionate and tragic love story unfolds between the beautiful and enigmatic daughter of a Carthaginian general and the leader of the mercenaries. The narrative is rich with historical detail, vivid depictions of exotic rituals, and the violent ebb and flow of power, culminating in a dramatic and bloody resolution that intertwines the fates of the city, the mercenaries, and the star-crossed lovers.
