How does Virgil characterize Turnus? What characters from earlier books of the Aeneid does he
resemble?
How does Virgil characterize Queen Amata? How does the description of Amata at 7.406-413 develop
the image of wounding / passion seen in earlier
books of the Aeneid?
Define the word pastoral, and describe how the
term applies to Italy before Aeneas' arrival. How
does the story of Silvia's deer contribute to this?
Why does Virgil invoke Erato the Muse at Aeneid
7.39-49, when he already invoked the Muse's help
at the start of Aeneid 1?
What is the purpose of interrupting the action to
insert the long catalogue of Italian allies at Aeneid
7. 747-948?
The most memorable of Turnus' allies is the
warrior-princess Camilla. What sets her apart
from the other characters?
