CHAPTER 1. Book 1. tantae molis erat Romanam condere gentem. Introduction of Themes. The first book of the Aeneid introduces most if not all of the themes that are to follow in the poem, and Vergil's care in introducing his themes in Book 1 provides another reason not to analyze the books in their putative chronological order.
