No description available, The Aeneid play ni d Latin Aeneis aj ne is the title is Greek in form genitive case Aeneidos is a Latin epic poem written by Virgil from to BCE that tells the legendary story of Aeneas a Trojan who travelled to Italy where he became the ancestor of the Romans It is composed of roughly lines in dactylic hexameter The first six of the poem s twelve books tell the story of Aeneas s wanderings from Troy to Italy and the poem s second half tells of the Trojans ultimately victorious war upon the Latins under whose name Aeneas and his Trojan followers are destined to be subsumed br br The hero Aeneas was already known to Greco Roman legend and myth having been a character in the Iliad Virgil took the disconnected tales of Aeneas wanderings his vague association with the foundation of Rome and a personage of no fixed characteristics other than a scrupulous piety and fashioned this into a compelling founding myth or nationalist epic that at once tied Rome to the legends of Troy glorified traditional Roman virtues and legitimized the Julio Claudian dynasty as descendants of the founders heroes and gods of Rome and Troy br br The Aeneid can be divided into two halves based on the disparate subject matter of Books Aeneas journey to Latium in Italy and Books the war in Latium These two halves are commonly regarded as reflecting Virgil s ambition to rival Homer by treating both the Odyssey s wandering theme and the Iliad s warfare themes This is however a rough correspondence the limitations of which should be borne in mind, No description available, b A masterpiece from one of the greatest poets of the century b br br In a momentous publication Seamus Heaney s translation of Book VI of the i Aeneid i Virgil s epic poem composed sometime between and BC follows the hero Aeneas on his descent into the underworld In i Stepping Stones i a book of interviews conducted by Dennis O Driscoll Heaney acknowledged the significance of the poem to his writing noting that there s one Virgilian journey that has indeed been a constant presence and that is Aeneas s venture into the underworld The motifs in Book VI have been in my head for years the golden bough Charon s barge the quest to meet the shade of the father br br In this new translation Heaney employs the same deft handling of the original combined with the immediacy of language and sophisticated poetic voice as was on show in his translation of i Beowulf i a reimagining which in the words of James Wood created something imperishable and great that is stainless stainless because its force as poetry makes it untouchable by the claw of literalism it lives singly as an English language poem
