This is the endorsed publication from OCR and Bloomsbury for the Latin AS and A-Level (Group 3) prescription of Aeneid Book XI, lines 1-224, and the A-Level (Group 4) prescription of Aeneid Book XI, lines 498-521, 532-596, 648-689, and 725-835, giving full Latin text, commentary and vocabulary, with a detailed introduction that also covers the prescribed text to be read in English for A Level. In Book XI Pallas, the warrior son of Evander who was killed by Turnus, is buried, amid the mourning of his father and the Trojans. After a truce to collect and bury the dead on both sides, fighting resumes, during which the warrior-maiden Camilla battles bravely for the Latins before being killed. The events of the book take up just four days: Pallas' funeral occupies the first; the second and third are devoted (briefly) to the truce and burials; the fourth, taking up the second half of the book, is concerned with Camilla's aristeia, in which she is likened to an Amazon.
