This year’s topic: "subiit deserta Creusa . . ." (Aen. II.562). Vergil goes to great lengths to describe the deaths of so many of the Trojans, yet he abandons Creusa as callously as Aeneas did. In a story of 400- 500 words, describe the death of Creusa to fill in the gap between line 711 (Aeneas telling her to follow "longe") and line 772 (when her "infelix umbra" appears). Be sure to incorporate details from Book II of the Aeneid. Please write in English; poetry is welcomed.
