“Aeneid” is an epic poem that is both burlesque and travesty, based on the ancient plot of Virgil, but with entirely Ukrainian features. The Trojans are depicted dressed as Cossacks, while the gods of Olympus are portrayed as bribe-takers, with harps and hummingbirds, indifferent to the affairs of mortals. They are seen walking, feasting, and entertaining each other.
