28/01/2008 16:10:00 Relationship of the past to the present? What are Virgil’s feelings towards it? There’s not much use for the past unless it propels you towards the future Eugenics??—Sicily will be founded by old people, by outcasts and criminals. If you can’t make it, Rome has to leave you behind. (Aeneid as a piece of propaganda) Any mitigating evidence for the propaganda theory? pg. 66—Troy diminished… Is Andromache honored for hanging on to a great Troy? “needless tears” She’s dwelling on the past—trying to recreate something that can never be recreated… whereas Aeneas is trying to break from that past… Is the pursuit better than the attainment? While the pursuit of this goal is painful… for Aeneas (ideal of Rome is unattainable), Andromache has found what she wanted and still isn’t happy. Note: Ambitions for Rome (Aeneas’s)—he seems reluctant sometimes… he says fate drives him forward (not really his choice). It’s the way it has to be.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
