'''Publius Vergilius Maro''' (70 BC - 19 BC) was a Roman poet, contemporary of [[UsefulNotes/{{Augustus}} Augustus]] and Creator/{{Ovid}} and admirer of Creator/{{Catullus}}. He composed ''Literature/TheAeneid'', setting out how Trojan refugees founded the greatest Rome or, rather, founded the tribe that would later give birth to the founders.

Vergilius was one of the few Roman poets that remained popular and greatly admired throughout the Christian Middle Ages, because one of his ''Eclogues'' was interpreted as a prophecy of the coming of [[UsefulNotes/JesusChrist Christ]]. Because of this, he was considered something of a {{seer|s}} and a mediator between pagan Antiquity and UsefulNotes/{{Christianity}}. In this function, he is famously featured in Dante's ''Literature/TheDivineComedy'', where he guides Dante through {{Hell}} and Purgatory.

!!Virgil provides examples of:
* CalltoAgriculture
* EmbarrassingNickname: "Parthenias"/'the Virgin,' due to his excessive shyness and modesty.
* PrettyBoy: [[http://content.answcdn.com/main/content/img/getty/6/9/51244569.jpg So it seems.]]
* ShrinkingViolet: Reportedly would hide from his fans, ducking into the nearest building if recognized on the street.
* SouthernFriedGenius: well, the Roman equivalent. Vergil was from Mantua--a region only recently granted Roman citizenship--and maintained his thick regional accent.
* StraightGay
* ThePerfectionist: He specifically asked on his deathbed that his unfinished manuscript of ''The Aeneid'' be burned because he didn't like how it turned out. They didn't.
