Virgil's Aeneid: Semantic Relations and Proper Names

By Michael Paschalis | Go to book overview

Note on Structure and Conventions

I have chosen a horizontal analysis of the Aeneid (by book) rather than a vertical one (by semantic component) for two main reasons. First, because semantic sequences within a book interrelate and cannot be discussed in isolation from the immediate and broader context. And secondly, because each book has certain dominant components and sequences which give it its own distinct identity.

The first part of each chapter is an Overview of the book under consideration; this is indicated by the Roman numeral I and comprises the basic sequences of the narrative. Material that would have interrupted the continuity of the semantic analysis has been collected into separate sections, which follow the Overview and are indicated by the Roman numerals II, III, IV, etc.

Semantic components (Introd. 11.2) are indicated by initial capitals (except for Greek and Latin words) and, where necessary, are placed within square brackets. Latin words and passages are placed within single quotes. Italic type is occasionally used within quotes in order to draw attention to the meaning of part of a name or other word.
