    Turnus is excited too, because he sees an opportunity to bring the fight to the Trojans on the landing-ground. Meanwhile, Tarchon urges his fleet to drive their ships up onto the earth. Everybody executes this maneuver successfully except for Tarchon himself; his ship splits in half on a sandbar, and many of his men are carried away by the. BOOK I: ARMS AND THE MAN.

In Book XII, Turnus's lack of control reaches its climax. Turnus is unable to control his emotional rage. His passion is described as "hot Turnus book unquenchable." Virgil compares Turnus's passion for Lavinia to that of Dido for Aeneas in the first half of The Aeneid.

Virgil contrasts the serenity of Aeneas in Book VIII with the frenzy of Turnus in Book IX. The Trojan leader has been assured, first by his tour of Pallanteum and then by the scenes depicted on the shield presented to him by his mother, of eventual victory over Turnus's forces.

The Aeneid Turnus is a counterpart to Dido, another of Juno’s protégés who must eventually perish in order for Aeneas to fulfill his destiny. Both Turnus and Dido represent forces of irrationality in contrast to Aeneas’s pious sense of order. Dido is undone by her romantic desire, Turnus.

The rage Turnus felt at the end of Book XI carries over to the beginning of Book XII, in which his passion is described as "hot and unquenchable." Virgil, as he did. In a rage at the turn of events against the Latins, Turnus announces to Latinus his intention to fight Aeneas and win Lavinia 's hand.

Latinus begs Turnus to reconsider, but Turnus is resolute. He says he's strong enough, and Venus won't be able to protect Aeneas when they fight man-to-man. In Book X, with both protagonist and antagonist present for the first time, the war enters its crucial phase.

Turnus's killing Pallas will lead eventually to his own death, for Turnus arouses in Aeneas a lust for vengeance that transforms the Trojan leader into an unrelenting enemy. Turnus book As Aeneas advances, Turnus pleads for mercy for the sake of his father. Aeneas is moved—but just as he decides to let Turnus live, he sees the belt of Pallas tied around Turnus’s shoulder.

As Aeneas remembers the slain youth, his rage returns in a surge. In the name of Pallas, Aeneas drives his sword into Turnus, killing him. Turnus swaggers forth and challenges Pallas alone in the center of the battle.

They each toss their spears. Pallas’s weapon penetrates Turnus’s shield and armor, but leaves only a flesh wound on Turnus. Turnus’s lance, on the other hand, tears through Pallas’s.

Virgil introduces Turnus, the king of the Rutulians, and a suitor of King Latinus’s daughter Lavinia. Turnus would seem to be a good match for Lavinia, as he is of noble birth and preferred by the queen.

Yet Latinus seems to seek signs that Turnus is not the right man to be his son-in-law, seeing signs and consulting oracles. We first learn about Turnus when the narrator tells us that Latinus's wife, Amata, wants him to marry their daughter, Lavinia.

We finally meet Turnus when the Fury Allecto comes and incites him to war against the Trojans. Turnus immediately commands his troops to prepare themselves for war. Summary Never one to miss an opportunity, Juno sends her messenger, Iris, down from Olympus to inform Turnus that Aeneas is away from his camp.

With their leader gone, the Trojans are particularly vulnerable to an attack, so Turnus immediately leads his army toward the enemy camp. As armies march from all over Latium to fight the Trojans, Turnus extends his appeal for help to Diomedes, who had engaged Aeneas in personal combat during the Trojan War and is now a ruler in southern Italy.

Aware of this dangerous course of events, Aeneas anxiously tries to. Turnus's speech of desperation is a slightly crazier version of Aeneas's similar anguish and near-suicidal pessimism in Books 1 and 5.

The speech shows that he's not a coward, just struggling to accept his fate and the manipulations of the gods. Turnus. The Rutulian warrior Turnus represents is different from Aeneas in a lot of ways.

He's brash, hotheaded, and seems to care only for himself. Book XII: When Turnus saw the Latins leave the field, Their armies broken, and their courage quell'd, Himself become the mark of public spite, His honor question'd for the promis'd fight; The more he was with vulgar hate oppress'd, The more his fury boil'd within his breast.

The king of the Rutulians, an Italian nation located about 20 miles from the eventual Rome, and Aeneas 's main mortal enemy.

He hoped to marry Lavinia, daughter of Latinus, and become king of thevia the fury Allecto, enchants Turnus so that he'll fight Aeneas instead of accepting becomes the leader in the battle of Latins against Trojans.

Turnus added to the unrest, in advancing with silent tread and venerating the altar humbly, with downcast eyes, and by his wasted cheeks and the pallor of his youthful body.

As soon as his sister, Juturna, was aware that talk was spreading and the minds of the multitude were wavering in doubt. The Latins, urged on by Drances, want to separate themselves from Turnus, who caused all the Book 8, a Latin delegation traveled to ask King Diomedes, a Greek now living in Italy, to ally with them against that delegation of Latins returns with news that Diomedes doesn't want to ally, because he's fought the Trojans enough and doesn't want more of the misery of war.

Euryalus's trophy-taking, an error of pride, is his downfall (and foreshadows Turnus's fateful choice to do some trophy-taking of his own in Book 10). Nisus, though, doesn't blame Euryalus for this error and puts himself in danger to go back for his friend.

Book 9: Turnus' siege of Trojan camp Meanwhile, the Trojan camp is attacked by Turnus—spurred on by Juno, who informs him that Aeneas is away from his camp—and a midnight raid by the Trojans Nisus and Euryalus on Turnus' camp leads to their death.

CONTENTS Book I 11 Book II 36 Book III 62 Book IV 82 Book V Book VI Book VII Book VIII Book IX Book X Turnus, seeing that the tide of war has turned against the Latins, realizes that he now must keep his pledge and fight Aeneas in a duel.

King Latinus begs Turnus to reconsider and seek peace with the Trojans, and a weeping Queen Amata pleads with him to defect. But Turnus cannot back down; his very honor, he believes, is at stake.

"The war," he states, "will be decided by our blood; the bride. This book takes over from these, in similar writing style and high-quality illustrations, and tells the Aeneid, the story of the founding of Rome. It switches over to the Roman names of the Gods, but there is enough continuity with the other two books (even though the author/illustrator are different) to make this book a perfect s:
