DOWNLOAD ✓ Æneis By Virgil DOWNLOAD ✓ PADDINGTONFESTIVAL.CO.UK à Virgil Virgil à 1 DOWNLOAD E fateful clash between the Trojan leader and the Italian hero Turnus Hailed by TS Eliot as 'the classic of all Europe' Virgil's Aeneid has enjoyed a uniue and enduring influence on European literature art and politics for the past two thousand years. I sing of warfare and a man at warFrom the sea coast of Troy in early daysHe came to Italy by destinyTo our Lavinian western shoreA fugitive this captain buffetedCruelly on land as on the seaBy blows from powers of the air behind themBaleful Juno in her sleepless rageAnd cruel losses were his lot in warTill he could found a city and bring homeHis gods to Latium land of the Latin raceThe Alban lords and the high walls of RomeTell me the cause now O Muse how galledIn her divine pride and how sore at heartFrom her old wound the ueen of gods compelled him A man apart devoted to his mission To undergo so many perilous daysAnd enter on so many trialsYears after finally reading The Illiad and The Odyssey one of my high school classes went over the important bits of The Odyssey but that was pretty much the beginning and end of my classical education I got around to reading the Roman side of the story at last Is it blasphemy to say that I like Virgil s version Granted Odysseus is probably a compelling character since he s at least morally complex in comparison to Aeneas s bland nobility and piety but I kind of preferred reading the adventures of a guy who manages to be a hero without also having to be a self centered cheating dickbag Even though I prefer the Greeks to the Romans overall I m Team Aeneas on this one because man Odysseus sucks I have this whole theory that everything that happens in the Odyssey is actually one huge lie concocted by Odysseus to explain why he didn t come home for ten years after the Trojan WarAs in Homer s epics some of the best parts of this book are the battle descriptions which are exciting detailed and appropriately gory There s also a lengthy description of the armor that the gods give one of the characters and even though that sounds boring it s actually beautiful And I liked the supporting characters a lot than I liked Homer s especially ueen Dido and Camilla the warrior girl Also Aeneas travels to the Underworld which is always a fun time
