We will read the first half of the most influential classical work on later periods, Virgil’s Aeneid, which works as the sequel to Homer–what happened after the fall of Troy. It recounts the journeys of Aeneas a Trojan who escaped Troy. How does Aeneas measure up as an epic hero? How would you compare him to, say, Achilles or Odysseus (I talk about Odysseus in my lectures)? How is he similar to or different from the Homeric hero? Does the Roman hero have different values than Homer’s Greek ones do? Consider the role of Roman pietas (devotion to one’s family, one’s countrymen, one’s gods) as opposed to the more personal values of Greek heroes (winning glory and fame for oneself).
