Aeneas & Dido

Today we looked at the relationship between Aeneas and Dido.  We examined the parallels with other works such as The Odyssey and Euripides’ play Medea. In some ways there were remarkably similar and in other ways they had subtle differences.  Revenge was a large theme in all three works.

For homework, Read up to Lines 264-439 in Book VI of Virgil’s Aeneid.  Highlight any imagery that describes what underworld looks, smells, feels, or sounds like.  Take the time to look up the words you don’t know. Don’t forget to check the Padlet.

You do not need to mail me the homework. We will use it for an in-class activity tomorrow.
