Aeneas is hidden by a fog of invisibility placed around him by Venus.   This is a direct contrast to book four where all the gods’ actions and interferences cause pain to Aeneas or Dido or both. There is a certain relief that the gods are not completely cruel, directly or indirectly, in their will in book five which provides a welcome contrast with the previous book.

Aeneas tells his story, which takes up all of Books 2 and 3. When Aeneas is done, Dido totally has the hots for him. The next morning, she confides in her sister. Start studying Aeneid Book 3 and 4.
