Creating a Venn diagram for the events in the Iliad and Aeneid is not difficult! The purpose of the Venn diagram is to create a visual representation of the relationship between a group of things. To create a Venn diagram, you must first draw a large rectangle and label it; in your case the label is "Events in the Iliad and the Aeneid." Next, draw two partially-overlapping circles inside the triangle, and make sure you leave enough room to write inside them. Label one circle Iliad and the other Aeneid. Inside each circle, write the qualities of and events which take place in that epic but not in the other. For instance, the Iliad is credited to Homer; the Aeneid, Virgil. There are some events which take place in both books, such as the Trojan War. Write these events in the portion where the two circles overlap. You now have a visual representation of the chronological similarities and differences in the Iliad and the Aeneid
