Vergil’s Aeneid is one of the greatest works of world literature. Published around 18 BCE, this epic poem narrates the mythical antecedents of the foundation of Rome. The translation is in verses – in hexameter as the original version – but, leaving behind the classicistic tradition, uses contemporary German to render the Latin text.

Patterns of Redemption in Virgil's Georgics

Author: Llewelyn Morgan

Publisher: Cambridge University Press

ISBN: 9780521651660

Category: History

Page: 255

View: 1205

At the time of this book's first publication in 1999, orthodoxy interpreted the Georgics as a statement of profound ambivalence towards Octavian and his claim to be Rome's saviour after the catastrophe of the civil wars. This book takes issue with the model of the subtly subversive poet. It argues that in the turbulent political circumstances which obtained at the time of the poem's composition, Virgil's preoccupation with violent conflict has a highly optimistic import. Octavian's brutal conduct in the civil wars is subjected to a searching analysis, but is ultimately vindicated, refigured as a paradoxically constructive violence analogous to blood sacrifice or Romulus' fratricide of Remus. The vindication of Octavian also has strictly literary implications for Virgil. The close of the poem sees Virgil asserting his mastery of the Homeric mode of poetry and the providential world-view it was thought to embody.

Virgil in the Renaissance

Author: David Scott Wilson-Okamura

Publisher: Cambridge University Press

ISBN: 1139935550

Category: Literary Criticism

Page: N.A

View: 7560

The disciplines of classical scholarship were established in their modern form between 1300 and 1600, and Virgil was a test case for many of them. This book is concerned with what became of Virgil in this period, how he was understood, and how his poems were recycled. What did readers assume about Virgil in the long decades between Dante and Sidney, Petrarch and Spenser, Boccaccio and Ariosto? Which commentators had the most influence? What story, if any, was Virgil's Eclogues supposed to tell? What was the status of his Georgics? Which parts of his epic attracted the most imitators? Building on specialized scholarship of the last hundred years, this book provides a panoramic synthesis of what scholars and poets from across Europe believed they could know about Virgil's life and poetry.
