Abstract

Vergil and the two 12th-century poets depict Dido as being destroyed by love as an absolute power. The inception of love and Dido's comportment are both psychological processes and tools of description. The perception of each poet of how these processes work shapes his configuration of Dido and the narrative. Dido's personal profile emerges in the episodes with Ascanius.
