      1. Literary Devices In Virgil’s “Aeneid” 2. “The Aeneid” is an EPIC POEM In keeping with the conventions of epic poetry, Virgil begins his story at its most dramatic and crucial moment; postponing the chronological start point until Book II. This technique is called in Latin “in medias res”, and means “in the middle of things”. 3. When writing the Aeneid, Virgil (or Vergil) drew from his studies on the Homeric epics of the Iliad and the Odyssey to help him create a national epic poem for the Roman people. Virgil used several characteristics associated with epic poetry, more specifically Homer's epics, including the use of hexameter verse, book division, lists of genealogies and underlying themes to draw parallels.

    Book Description: This book by one of the preeminent Virgil scholars of our day is the first comprehensive study of ekphrasis in Virgil's final masterpiece, uses ekphrasis-a self-contained aside that generates a pause in the narrative to describe a work of art or other object-to tell us something about the grander text in which it is embedded, says Michael C. J. Putnam.
