Aeneid book 12 latin and english
Sabidius' Classics Blog: VIRGIL: AENEID: BOOK XII: THE DEATH OF TURNUSPost a Comment. The last six books resemble the "Iliad" rather than the "Odyssey", because they deal with matters of war rather than voyaging. In both the "Iliad" and the "Aeneid" an older man gives the principal hero a companion to fight by their side who is subsequently killed by an enemy chieftain, whom the hero then kills in revenge. Book XII, as is indeed the case with much of the last four books, also resembles Homer's "Iliad" in that it is full of bloody war scenes in which the grim and gory realities of battle, far from being played down, are emphasised. The two main combatants, Aeneas and Turnus, erupt in an orgy of killing. Each is driven by hatred, contempt, rivalry for the love of a woman, and the desire for revenge; and each taunts his wounded adversaries and kills them without mercy.

Carry out the holy rite, father, and draw up the marriage contract. Allow me to say this, un-gently, openly stripped of all guile, and take it to heart: it was forbidden for me to ally my daughter to any of her former suitors, and all gods and men decreed it. Conquered by love for you, conquered by kinship, and the tears of a sorrowful wife, I broke all bounds: I snatched the betrothed girl from my son-in-law to be, and drew the impious sword.
