    I find it interesting that Vergil calls this half of his work a maius opus since generally modern readers seem to prefer the first half (and the AP Latin curriculum is all excerpts from the first half).

    I like book 7, but it wasn't one of my favorites. Juno's speech early-ish on is interesting because it kind of parallels her first speech in book 1, but lines 647-817 of book 7 are all a catalog of Turnus's forces which I didn't find very engaging.

    Yeah, I think one of reasons he says that is because now that the narrative is in Italy, he feels he can separate himself more from Homer.

    Though that catalog is based on Homer's catalog of ships in book 2 of the Iliad.
