Commentary Virgil’s epic tells the story of the origins of Roman civilization. He could have chosen a broader narrative span for his epic if he had wanted. Previous epic poets, notably Ennius, narrated Rome’s history from the beginning up to recent times. Virgil elected to focus, like Homer and Apollonius in the Greek tradition, on a single hero and his story, moreover, a hero Aeneid who could not have been better chosen as a link between Greek and Roman traditions of epic: He literally travels from one into the other.

Evander agrees to the alliance and extends his hospitality to Aeneas. As they are performing the rites of Heracles, Evander takes the occasion of the feast to give a colorful explanation of the origins of these rites. They were in memory of Heracles’ killing of Cacus for having stolen his cattle. Evander then offers a history of Latium from the earliest period and a tour of key sites of proto-Roman topography: the Asylum, the Lupercal, the Argiletum, the Capitol, and, finally, his own simple dwelling.

The people of Latium are roused to anger; fighting breaks out between the Trojans and local peoples. Allecto reports back to Juno, who dismisses the Fury abruptly. All of 19 Latium cries out for war, and Latinus, besieged, withdraws into the palace and gives up his rule. Since Latinus refused to open the gates of war according to Roman custom, Juno herself smashes them open. For the remainder of the book, the poet rehearses a catalog of Italian peoples and their leaders in war, ending with an evocative description of the Volscian Camilla.
