Here are role assignments for The Aeneid, Books 10-12. In making these assignments, I tried to improve the dynamics of the reading by having different speakers say things when the context is a conversation or a confrontation. I also tried my best to maintain uniformity of roles for the entire reading. Thus if you are Aeneas at the beginning of a book, I have tried to assign you the role of Aeneas throughout as far as possible, in addition of course to the Virgil-X part you might have to read.

I am learning how to do this better as I go along and might revisit my earlier role assignments to improve them. Please let me know of any corrections and suggestions.

Thanks as always for your support of the group and Happy Thanksgiving! Maybe these role assignments will give you something additional to chew on during the break 🙂
