Quiz- Book IV: Lines 279-286 (Can You Believe This Is Up A Whole Day EARLY!)

Well, I've (we've) blown off all my (our) other homework just to get this up for kids a whole DAY early (well technically not a day, but whatever)!

This time I (Mia) decided to do this thing that is kinda psycho and time-consuming instead of line-by-line notes...but it really helps one to easily identify vocabulary, cases, etc.

As always, enjoy! (and you're welcome) ;)

Translation:
279 And truly Aeneas mad/frenzied stood speechless at the sight,
280 and his hair having stood on end in horror and his voice is choked/halted by his throat.
281 he is eager/burns to depart in flight and to abandon these sweet lands,
282 having been astounded by such a warning and the by the commandment of the gods.
283 Alas, what can/would he do? By what statement/speech would he dare to approach the frenzied (by love) queen (namely Dido)?
284 What first beginning could/would he take?
285 And yet he divides his mind, now here quickly, now there
286 he takes into various parts and turns (his mind) through all things.

book 4: 450-451

tum vero infelix fatis exterrita Dido mortem orat; taedet caeli convexa tueri

translation=then in truth, terrified by her fate, unlucky dido prays for death, she is weary of gazing on the arch of heaven
