Prompts for Essays on first Vergil test
Support your assertions with references drawn from throughout this passage. All Latin words must be copied or their line numbers provided. AND They must be translated or paraphrased closely enough so that it is clear that you understand the Latin.
In lines 1-33, Vergil sets forth some of the themes that he will explore in the rest of the poem: the personal cost of the founding of Rome, Rome’s history, the roles that fate and the gods play, and the powerful force of emotion. In a short, well-organized essay, explain how he establishes these themes.
In lines 81-91, Vergil establishes a vivid and violent setting for the events that follow. In a short, well-organized essay, explain how he creates this setting.
Lines 180-209 recall several episodes in the Odyssey: Odysseus killing a deer for his men, his encounters with Scylla and the Cyclops, and the detailed description of the preparation of the food. Given these epic allusions, Aeneas’ brief “private moments” in lines 208-209 stands out. Why does Vergil show Aeneas as having these two facets, the heroic and the human? Present your response in a well-organized essay.
