13 CONCLUSION

Chapter 13 of The Bloody Funny History of Rome concludes with a look at James Joyce's Ulysses and other Roman works: "But oblige me by taking away that knife. I can't look at the point of it. It reminds me of Roman history!" A list and description of over 50 different Ancient Authors mentioned in the text ranges from Aelian who wrote the first Alien (Weird Animals), to Virgil who wrote the Aeneid, to Dante in the Middle Ages, who was guided through his Divine Comedy by Virgil's ghost. Many poets were unhappy with the ending of Virgil's Aeneid Book 12, and took it upon themselves to write Book 13 which added a happy ending.
