Step #10: Review the PowerPoint Presentation called “The Aeneid Introduction” located in the attachment.
Step #11 Review the Aeneid Summary Lecture Notes in the Microsoft Word Attachment.
Step #12: In the Aeneid, you learnt about the tragic love story between Aeneas and Dido. They both have their interpretations of the events: Dido, the Queen of Carthage, a widow who promised to remain faithful to the memory of her husband, gives up her vows after falling in love with Aeneas. She gave him shelter, and intended to make him a king. She fell in love, but in reality she and Aeneas were struck by Cupid, the god of love. Venus, Aeneas`s mother, asked Cupid to strike Dido so that she would be favorable to her half-mortal son Aeneas. Aeneas, also falls in love with Dido and spends a year with her. However, he is reminded by Mercury that he needs to leave Carthage to reach the coast of Latium, in Italy, in order to start the progeny that will later found Rome. He does not know how to give the news to Dido, and starts preparing his ship for his departure without saying anything. Dido suspects that Aeneas is fleeing, and confronts him. As you have learnt, Dido is hearth broken and kills herself through a bonfire. After reading the Aeneid (particularly Book IV), figuratively pretend to be Dido and write a two page "apologia" to Aeneas. Remember an “Apologia” (a Greek term that means "speaking in defense") is a formal defense of a position or action. In modern usage, apologia describes a formal defense and should not be confused with the sense of the word `apology` as the expression of regret.

The "Apologia" has to be written in Times New Roman Font size 12 with 1 inch margins all around.
Thank you to the writer for your time. It`s greatly appreciated.





Dido Write an "Apologia" to Aeneas

Since you left Carthage for the far lands of Italy my mind has been discontented by such a demise our love faced, for it ended on a short time without accomplishing the desires of our consummation. I feel deprived of your genuine love that failed to appreciate the favor I offered you: welcoming you in my city and offering you a place among my people just like a friend I knew from long. For your arrival was not a mere apparition, but a commitment by the gods to o
