About The Aeneid. The Aeneid, the story of a band of survivors who leave their destroyed city to seek another home in a faraway country, is about rebirth, about life springing forth from ruin and is primarily a fiction whose narrative fabric, woven from myth and legend, traces a pattern that appears in the most profound myths that concern the human spirit's eternal quest for self.

“The Aeneid” can be divided into two halves: Books 1 to 6 describe Aeneas‘ journey to Italy, and Books 7 to 12 cover the war in Italy. These two halves are commonly regarded as reflecting Vergil ‘s ambition to rival Homer by treating both the wandering theme of “The Odyssey” and the warfare theme of “The Iliad”.Ratings: At the end of Book 1, the readers hear more about Dido's emotions than Aeneas's.

Analysis. One of the more interesting problems that Virgil must have encountered while writing the Aeneid is the difficulty of maintaining suspense in a tale with such a preordained outcome. Throughout. Aeneid Summary.

The Aeneid is an epic poem by Virgil about Aeneas, a Trojan hero who escapes the fall of Troy and founds the kingdom that will be become Rome.

The story begins as Aeneas sailing. The destructive invasion of Troy by the Greeks, the subject of Book II, occurs at the chronological beginning of the Aeneid and is the first crucial event of the epic, the one from which all others follow in sequential order.

Aeneas's personally narrating the Trojans's adventures gives an intimacy to his story that would be lacking if it were. Virgil’s Aeneid is a work of poetry that tells the story of Aeneas and the Trojans. The story begins in Book One, seven years after the Trojan War.
