One of the touches in Book 11 that has been pointed out often, which keeps that contrast from being simple, is the portrayal of Drances.

Just when we might be thinking that Turnus is obviously and totally in the wrong, Virgil brings in someone to speak against him who is. Book XI is an interlude between the battle described in the preceding book, which brings the Trojans close to victory, and Aeneas's defeat of Turnus in direct.

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.

Pen and brown ink over black chalk; x mm Location unknown. and ).6 The quarrel with Drances in Book 11 casts Turnus in the roles of Hector and Paris; when the assembly breaks up, Turnus recalls Hector as he rallies the Latins for the final contest (cf.

and II. ; ; and R. ).7 Through the end of Book 11 it seems that Turnus is. Summary. The day after the battle, Aeneas views the body of young Pallas and, weeping, arranges for 1, men to escort the prince’s corpse to King Evander and to join the king in mourning.

When Evander hears of his son’s death, he is crushed, but because Pallas died honorably, he forgives Aeneas in his heart and wishes only for the death of Turnus.

Turnus 's troops attempt to scale the fortress walls. The Trojans hold them off, but Turnus throws a flaming torch that sets afire and collapses a Trojan tower, killing many, and throwing two Trojans out onto the Rutulians.

One, Helenor, resembles a wild boar as he throws himself onto Turnus's men and dies. we see in Turnus in Book 11 elements of Paris, whereas at Juno, Turnus' protectress, referred to Aeneas as Paris alter. Again, the ironic portrayal of both Turnus' and Drances' displaying some of the characteristics of Hector greatly increases the depth and complexity of each character.

In fact, since the Drances-Turnus debate can also be. Drances blames Turnus for the the fact that Turnus and Drances book city is now "slumped in grief" and the death of Latin leaders. He says that Latinus should also offer Lavinia to Aeneas, and complains that the rank and file suffer and fight just so that Turnus can win a royal bride.

He urges peace and that if Turnus still wants to win Lavinia, then he should fight. Drances who was a fine speaker but poor in action and jealous of Turnus fame speaks about the waste of war to appease Turnus ego. Turnus in anger taunts Drances cowardice and assures the Latins of great allies like Messapus, Tolumnius and Camilla to defeat Aeneas.

Turnus reacts violently and tells Drances he is full of hot air and is no good in battle. He insists that the Trojans are ultimately a defeated people and he offers a one-on-one battle with Aeneas. He swears to Latinus that there is still strength left in Latin arms.

Summary and Analysis Book XII Summary. With the combined Trojan and Etruscan forces at Laurentum's gates, Turnus becomes fully aware that the Latins are in grave danger, so he renews the offer he made earlier in the citadel before Latinus and Drancës: He will fight Aeneas alone, and the winner will have Lavinia for his wife.

Drances agrees, but Turnus furiously refuses and there is a heated exchange between the two of them. Turnus takes his army on the offensive, intending to trap Aeneas in an ambush. The final section, roughly the second half of the book, focuses on the resumption of.

Drances says that it is clear that this war has come about because of Turnus’ pride, and that Turnus should either accept defeat or challenge Aeneas directly. Drances supports this, but Queen Amata – who still wants Turnus, not Aeneas, as a son-in-law – nixes it.

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 and unquenchable." Virgil compares Turnus's passion for Lavinia to that of Dido for Aeneas in the first half of The Aeneid. The more Turnus craves Lavinia, the.

In Book XI, Turnus’s planned ambush in the mountains removes the main characters from the fighting and then, coincidentally, keeps them from meeting at the last moment.

Virgil delays this final confrontation for as long as possible, thus building the tension. Share this: Print. In Latinus’ city the bereaved people curse Turnus and his betrothal to Lavinia, saying that he should fight by himself for this. Drances urges this view as well. Others speak for Turnus, and the queen’s name supports his cause, as do his great deeds of the past.

Under the leadership of Drances, the supporters of peace movement argue in the assembly. Turnus being cornered in the assembly violently criticizes Drances and his other opponents for cowardice and like a true hero offers to engage Aeneas in personal combat if this will settle their dispute.

A senator named Drances, also in favor of peace, supports Latinus' plan. But Drances is also terribly jealous of the strong and brave Turnus. So, as he speaks he taunts Turnus, suggesting that he is not brave enough to face Aeneas alone. Knowing Turnus, you can imagine that he won't accept Drances' speech.

He starts to rant and rave. Drances addresses Turnus, telling him to renounce his claim to Lavinia's hand. If he still has his heart set on her, then he should man up and face Aeneas in single combat.

Turnus tells Drances to shut up. Just then, messengers arrive saying that the whole Trojan army is on its way. Turnus takes this as sign that all-out war is still called for.

Drances criticised Turnus saying he was the cause of their suffering because he felt robbed of his royal bride; he should face Aeneas alone. Turnus angrily accused Drances and the Latins of cowardice; they had many other allies and they were inflicting just as many deaths on the Trojans; he would happily face a single combat challenge from Aeneas.
