(p.35) Chapter 2 The Structure of Aeneid 10
Homeric Effects in Vergil's Narrative

This chapter discerns to what extent the presence of a model cooperates in making legible the narrative implicating it, how it serves to guide the reader, and aids in making sense of the text. It shows to what degree Homer comes into play for reading the plot. Here, the chapter is concerned with not just occasional contacts between single speech acts but also with entire implicit scripts and plot lines that the model projects upon the new text and its reading. Hence, this chapter engages a sufficiently long stretch of text, and by focusing on a larger narrative arc, it seeks to discover how the complex process unfolds and at the same time measure the presence of the Homeric model as a trace of sense and aid to narration. The text under discussion is the tenth book of the Aeneid.

Keywords:   Aeneid 10, Homeric model, narration, intertextual models, scripts, plot lines
