Transcript of The Aeneid & The Odyssey

Tying it in
Identify (at least) three moments in the text where Virgil makes a conscious link between this text and:

The Homeric Epics

The Nation of Rome

The Fate of Carthage
The Aeneid & The Odyssey
L.O. - To compare and evaluate the stylistic decisions made in the opening books of The Aeneid & The Odyssey

Both Texts
End Goal
A Question
On his deathbed, Virgil requested that the Aeneid be burned, rather than published.

You could think about:
When do they take place?
When in the narrative do they start?
What is the focus of the narrative?
What is revealed to us by the narrator?
Do they share language techniques?
