The Aeneid  By Virgil Written 19 B.C.E
Updated Sep 10, 2018

The Aeneidis an epic poem written in 12 books and is modeled in part on the great Greek epic poems, on Homer's Iliadand Odyssey, and on Apollonius' Argonautica. The Iliaddescribes the exploits of Achilles and other Greek heroes in the Trojan War (the same war which forced Aeneas to leave Troy and is described in Book II of the Aeneid) whilst the Odysseydescribes how Ulysses (or Odysseus in Greek) wandered for many years, trying to return home after the Trojan War.

The first six books of the Aeneidparallel the Odyssey because they describe Aeneas' search for a home. Aeneas even stops in many of the same places that Odysseus did. There is an important difference, however, for whilst Odysseus was trying to return to his original home, Aeneas must find a new place in which to settle and make his home.

The second six books parallel the Iliad, for they describe the war in Italy just as the Iliaddescribes the Trojan War. Again, there are many parallels. For example, the Trojans are besieged inside their fort in Italy just as they were trapped inside Troy. But again there is an important difference, since the Iliaddescribes how the Trojans lost the war and Troy fell but in theAeneidthe Trojans win the war in Italy and get the chance to build a new city.

Virgil imitates many scenes from both the Iliadand theOdysseyin his epic, but he always changes them in significant ways so that they illustrate his own Roman themes. One of the most important differences between Homer's epics and the Aeneidis that it can be read as a patriotic poem whilst the Iliadand the Odysseyare poems about individuals and their adventures. Homer emphasizes heroes, not countries. But one of Virgil's main points is to show how Rome became the city it is, and to outline the virtues that make a good Roman citizen or leader, and in this way Virgil is far more moralistic in his approach than Homer. One example of this difference in attitude can be seen in the epithets applied by the poets to their respective heroes, for whilst Odysseus is 'poikilios "wily", Aeneas is frequently described as pius, "pious" or "righteous", which conveys a strong moral tone.

The Aeneidcan be viewed as being divided into three parts. The first four books take place with Dido in Carthage, including a flashback to the fall of Troy. The second four books (V-VIII) describe the Trojans' arrival in Italy and Aeneas' trip to the underworld where he sees the future of Rome. The last four books (IX-XII) describe the war in Italy and Aeneas' triumph over Turnus.

The books of the Aeneidcan also be considered in pairs. The odd-numbered books tend to be less dramatic (for example, Book III in which the Trojans' wanderings are described or Book V which contains the funeral games held for Anchises). The even-numbered books reach greater emotional peaks, for example, the death of Dido in Book IV, and Aeneas' vision of the future in Book VI.

"You think it's hard to be a king? Try being a king's brother for  a day."

Philippe d'Orleans had lived in the shadow of his eldest brother for as long as he could remember.Suddenly elevated as the brother of the king at two years old, Philippe was taught and raised to always be second best to Louis, a king only two years his senior.

If it was hard to be the Sun King in seventeenth century France, it was even harder to be the boy behind the king, the child whose education was purposefully neglected in order to lessen the chances of him becoming rebellious, whose chances of any income were thwarted when he was made to pay the price for his uncle's rebelliousness, forcing him to rely upon the crown and the generosity of his brother for the remainder of his life. Forced to take second best to his brother, Philippe was the man who was not permitted to complain when the king bedded his wife, when the king exiled his lovers and when the king exiled him completely from government and politics.

If it was hard to be the Sun King, it was a thousand times harder to be his brother.

As the sun rose above the darkened city and the full extent of the damage became clear, the girl turned her horse away. Away from the life and death in the city of Pompeii."
