Anchises’ speech (Aen. 6,724-751) synthesizes, in twenty-eight verses, the great themes of the cosmos (724-727), the animated beings (728-732), the soul imprisoned in the body (733-738), the destiny of the souls (739-751). The synthesis is obtained by means of a carefully designed structure: the different parts are proportionate to each another, and are linked through internal references. In the analysis of Anchises’ speech I use the weaving images (warp, weft, meshes). The warp consists of the various threads of the speech (corresponding to the themes of the main sections: cosmos, animated beings…), while the weft is the main thread, consisting of internal references and of verbal and conceptual parallels.

Abstract

Anchises’ speech (Aen. 6,724-751) synthesizes, in twenty-eight verses, the great themes of the cosmos (724-727), the animated beings (728-732), the soul imprisoned in the body (733-738), the destiny of the souls (739-751). The synthesis is obtained by means of a carefully designed structure: the different parts are proportionate to each another, and are linked through internal references. In the analysis of Anchises’ speech I use the weaving images (warp, weft, meshes). The warp consists of the various threads of the speech (corresponding to the themes of the main sections: cosmos, animated beings…), while the weft is the main thread, consisting of internal references and of verbal and conceptual parallels.
