Ovid/Virgil Assignment Virgil, The Aeneid “That was the end Of Priam’s age, the doom that took him off, With Troy in flames before his eyes, his towers Headlong- fallen, he that in other days Had ruled in pride so many lands and peoples, The power of Asia.” Lines 722-727 This passage gives depth to the fall of Troy. In only a few lines, Virgil illustrates the pain of one king watching his city burn before his eyes. The passage alludes to the face that Troy was under siege with no given warning. Virgil portrays Priam as grief stricken, watching his city “in flames before his eyes”. He also illustrates the grief Priam feels watching his people burn within the city. He watches his walls and his towers that he had built up fall before his very own eyes. The attack was so sudden and conniving; no one had time to prepare to fight. Troy, as it surrenders, falls to its knees in bloodshed and horror. Virgil also includes the fact that Troy was strong, and Priam was a strong ruler.

    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.
