Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. "I sing of ________ and a man...".

Answer: Arms

The opening section parallels both the "Iliad" and the "Odyssey". The 'arms' parallels the opening quote of "The Iliad": 'Sing, Muse, sing the rage of Achilles,' while the man refers to Odysseus in Homer's "Odyssey".
2. "Is there such great _______ from divine minds?"

Answer: Wrath

This is referring to Juno's great anger that Aeneas will keep the Trojan name alive.
3. "So great a task it was to found the Roman _________."

Answer: Race

This is talking about how hard it was to found the race and having to get through all the hardships faced. It ends the prologue.
4. "Three and four times blessed, those whose lot it fell to die under the high walls of Troy before the face of the _________!"

Answer: Fatherland

Aeneas is lamenting that he thought he would die in a storm and not fighting for his city, Troy.
5. "Then Trojan _________ is born with noble origin."

Answer: Caesar

Jupiter is telling the future of the Trojan/Roman race to Venus.
6. "She says, and turning away, the rosy colored _______ gleams."

Answer: Neck

This is describing how Venus is revealing herself as a goddess to her son Aeneas.
7. "Such work as this the _________ exercise in the new summer through the flowery fields under the sun."

Answer: Bees

This is a simile describing the Carthaginians building their city.
8. "He stands up and, _________, he says, 'Achates, what now is this place, what regian in the earth does not know of our works?'"

Answer: Crying

This is Aeneas reacting to the mural of the Trojan war and remembering his now-dead friends.
9. "He himself is _______." (At the sight of his long-lost friends).

Answer: Dumbstruck

Aeneas cannot believe that he is seeing those he thought dead because of the storm.
10. "From which came the Latin race and the Alban fathers and the walls of _______ Rome."

Answer: High

This is a perfect example of a transferred epithet (a rhetorical device where an adjective modifies the wrong noun) as high should not modify Rome, but the walls.
