Surname 1 Name: Lecturer: Course: Date: Elucidation of History and fable in The Aeneid by Virgil Basic Outline Introduction Basic Outline Introduction What is the general idea and contributions of Virgil's reflections in the Aeneid to History and fable in the dynamic ancient world? Does Virgil exploit the theme of history and fable in the poem or is the work strictly based on the heroic events of Aeneas? Virgil entwines numerous chronological and fabled elements, evidently indicating his ethical and political concerns with relation to the new empire, his blurring boundaries between past and present and thus indicating the significance of myth and history in the poem. Body To address the issue of history and fable as discussed in The Aeneid by Virgil, it is significant to understand the major themes and the background of the poem which indicates the ideas generated by the author. The growth of Roman civilization and the aspect of reality and fiction in the poem generate the idea of history and mythology and its importance to Virgil's The Aeneid.

    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.
