The storm arrives and destroys much of the Trojan fleet. Many of Aeneas' ships are lost, driven either into sand bars and reefs, or sucked into a devouring whirlpool. Vergil uses a lot of metrical effects to emphasize the devastating nature of this storm.
Neptune arrives on the scene of the storm and sees the wreckage of Aeneas' fleet. He summons the winds and rebukes them for daring to overturn the seas and Neptune's power. Then he sends the winds back to Aeolus, promising a much greater punishment.
Juno visit Aeolus, the ruler of the winds and king of a floating island in the Mediterranean. Her goal: to drive Aeneas far away from Italy and his fate. If only she could.
The Latin word secundus means "second" (obviously), but it also has meanings that go more in hand with "favorable" or "willing". How did these disparate meanings come about?
Just a week ago, I released a tool that helps you focus on core Latin vocabulary, the most common words that show up in Latin. I'm happy to announce a update to the tool that gives a user rating (a time independent measure), item analysis, and correct answers. Enjoy!
Chiasmus is the A-B-B-A order of words or phrases. Often in Latin this is represented with different bits of grammar, like the placement of verbs and nouns. Latin also uses chiasmus with adjective-noun combinations. With chiasmus, what's fair is foul and foul is fair.

Infinitives are a very pure form of the verb, and Latin uses the infinitive in many different ways, and tenses and voices. This video covers the present passive infinitive, the "to be ...ed" translation. I want this video to be watched and to be enjoyed!
The third declension is a little bit more varied than many choose to admit. Along with the standard endings (which belong to the consonantal stems of the third declension) are those that are used with third declension words ending in an -i in their stem. These are the third declension i-stems, and they aren't *that* different from the third declension consonantal stems.

As the Trojans sail north from Sicily, Juno has other intentions. But first, a monologue as Juno unfolds the unfair treatment given to Minerva, who was able to kill a whole lot of Greeks all because of the crime of one man, Lesser Ajax. But Juno herself can't kill Aeneas? What kind of divinity is she?
There's more to Juno's disgust of Aeneas and the Trojans than just the fate of Carthage, her beloved city. There's the judgment of Paris, the fact that one of the founders of the Trojans is an illegitimate son of Jupiter, among other reasons. It's going to be very hard for Aeneas to found the Roman race!
