Read Aeneid http://www.gutenberg.org/files/22456/22456-h/22456-h.htm
Option 1: choose a passage from “Virgil’s Similes” and address the following: http://www.gutenberg.org/files/22456/22456-h/22456-h.htm
A simile is a a figure of speech involving the comparison of one thing with another thing of a different kind; with that in mind, write a few sentences that explain the comparison Virgil makes. List one theme that is present in the simile. Use words from the passage and explain how it addresses the theme. As always, connect the ancient theme to a modern counterpart.
Option 2: choose a passage from “Important Scenes” and address the following: http://www.gutenberg.org/files/22456/22456-h/22456-h.htm
Explain in a Discussion response what’s happening in a selected passage that indicates an important scene. Quote two pivotal phrases from the passage and explain why they’re important. In your post, address how the phrases help readers understand the passage and connect to the text as a whole. Smoothly transition to compare one theme that is addressed in Virgil’s Aeneid to another work read this semester. Quote and cite a passage from each work and explain how they both address the same theme. As always, connect the ancient theme to a modern counterpart.
