Novel Gives Roman Maiden Her Moment in the Sun
In Virgil's epic poem The Aeneid, the maiden Lavinia marries a Trojan hero but barely gets to utter a word. Science fiction writer Ursula K. Le Guin picks up where the classic poet left off in her historical novel Lavinia. Le Guin recreates the life and times of a forgotten heroine.
