(III. 708-11)

On this sad note Aeneas ends his story to Dido. He's a lonely and worn-out man. After all he's been through since the fall of Troy, he feels that the worst is the loss of his father, the person he consulted for advice. Just as he was about to reach Italy, this happened. He remembers carrying his father out of burning Troy and wonders what the point of it was. Now he must make all his decisions alone.


NOTE:

Do you see how the story has come full circle? In Book I, you read how Juno created a storm just as the Trojans were leaving Sicily in order to prevent them from reaching Italy. Instead, they were blown to Carthage, and Aeneas tells his story to Dido. In a sense we're back to the point we started from. In the next Book we'll see what happens to Aeneas and Dido.
