How did virgils epic poem the Aeneid reawaken roman pride?

The Aeneid awakened Roman pride in several ways especially since the Romans were so very ancestor conscious. Two of the ways that it instilled pride were that it gave them a heroic history where the hero, by being true to his destiny or mission, overcame the forces pitted against him. It gave them a role model, so to speak, and also a connection to the gods due to Aeneas' parentage.

What was Homer's first epic poem?

We don't actually know. Traditionally, the Iliad is considered to have been the first, followed up by the Odyssey, and both of them written by Homer somewhere in the 8th century BC.

It's actually much more complicated: the so-called 'Homeric question' (don't know if this is the correct translation, I'm a Dutch-speaking Belgian) handles about who might have been Homer, where and when he lived etc. Some think there's never been 1 Homer, but just a group of singers who made these poems. Others think the Iliad and Odyssey are the first written redaction of an oral tradition of epic poems. Some think Homer has lived indeed, but the question arises when: opinions differ from 1200BC to 700BC.

Why did Homer write his epic poem?

Homer was a rhapsode (Greek poet-singer)--it was his job to create renditions of traditional stories, just as it was the job of the Medieval and Renaissance bards to sing tales. Homer's epics were originally an oral tradition dating years before any of the stories were ever recorded, and did not write his epics as we would think of writing them today. Historians have recently found that in the days before writing was common, these oral stories were not actually memorized. There were particular formulas by which a rhapsode could compose verses on the spot--rules regarding the amount of syllables and particular phrases common in each retelling were included. Thus, each rhapsode's story was different in every telling. When it was decided the great epics should be recorded, Homer was credited as the greatest living rhapsode and it is his version of the stories (so popular history tells) that was recorded and which we read today.

What is the difference between Beowulf epic poem and Batman?

The main difference is form. Beowulf is a lyric poem, a long story, which exists mainly in one format, an Old English transcription of a previous orally passed-down story, and some translations of that text. There have been attempts to make dramatised versions of this story, but they are all basically the same story.

Batman however is more than just one story and also exists in many different formats. Starting first as a comic strip in America (originally The Bat Man) in 1939, the comic strip has produced thousands of stories. There was a series of cartoon adventures made for the cinema, two live action television series, and several feature films featuring the character.

Why did Homer write stories?

homer wrote his epics to spread the word of the events. his epics such as the odyssey snd the ilad are good books i recomend reading them.

The historical legends of the Trojan War and Odysseus' homecoming had been passed on through the oral tradition of ancient Greek culture well before Homer's version of the epics became definitive. Story-telling of this type served many purposes, such as explaining historical events, glorifying the state, spreading cultural and political power, and entertainment.

What is the world's second longest epic poem?

Most likely, the Mahabharata, as a major Sanskrit epic of ancient India, is the second longest of the world's known surviving epic poems. It fills more than 74,000 verses with about 1.8 million words. It's thought that the epic was worked out, and added to, over the course of about 1,600-2,700 years [about the 8th century before Christ, to about the 4th century A.D.]. The longest most likely is the Epic of King Gesar. It packs over 20 million words into more than 1 million verses. It's thought to be about 1,000 years old. And some 140 specially trained ballad singers still recite the epic to Buryat, Mongolian, Tibetan and Tu ethnic audiences of Central Asia, and possibly still in Tibet.
