Harvard Classics, Vol. 13 Æneid Vergil The greatest of Latin epics, concerning the mythic founder of Rome, the Æneid combines both legitimization of Roman dominance of the world and perfect poetic style to ensure both contemporary sanction and literary permanence.

Aeneid IX marks the beginning of the full-scale narrative of the war between the Trojans and Turnus' Italians which occupies the last quarter of the epic. Two days during which Turnus launches a siege-assault on the Trojan camp while Aeneas is absent are separated by the nocturnal interlude of the ill-fated expedition of the romantic young Trojans Nisus and Euryalus/5(57).

Palinurus's death, which recalls Anchises's at the end of Book III, exemplifies how Virgil interweaves the dark and bright strands of human existence to achieve a subtly balanced and nuanced vision of reality.
