You may want to begin with a quotation. Employ this technique with caution because this technique is often overused. If you use it, use a quotation that summarizes or somehow relates to the point of your paper. After the quotation, show how it relates to your thesis.
Jupiter tells Venus of Aeneas’ destiny in Book I of the Aenaed “Aeneas shall fight a great war in Italy and overthrow proud peoples. He shall establish for his warriors a way of life and walls for their defense; and he shall live until the 3rd summer looks on his reign in Latium” (35). The gods, the reader of the Aenaed, and Aeneas himself all know that his destiny is to be the forefather of the Romans. In this paper, I trace the key steps in Aeneas’ path toward his destiny.
