Metamorphoses: Book 13: The Wanderings of Aeneas (1) Summary & Analysis

Summary
Analysis
Aeneas, a survivor of Troy, takes his father Anchises and the statues of Troy’s gods and flees across the sea with a small group of Trojans. They stop at Thrace, but quickly leave and head to an island called Delos.
Although Troy was obliterated, Aeneas escapes the wreckage unseen by the Greeks. This gives Troy a small yet powerful lifeline through which the city can be rebuilt and transformed.
