THE EPISODE OF
NISUS AND EURYALUS
A paraphrase from the ÆNEID, LIB. IX

By
Lord Byron



Virgil wrote the  ÆNEID  (the story of Æneas) between 26 BC and 19 BC.   There is no comparison to the original, although it has been translated many times.  But (in my opinion) this paraphrase of the section on Nisus and Euryalus by Lord Byron is one of the best!

This poem was included in Byron's Hours of Idleness published in 1807.
