Love can be i hopeless i br br From the fall of Troy to the deadly Harpies Aeneas epic voyage is filled with tragedy destruction and omens of danger As he recounts his adventures to Dido who gives him sanctuary they fall in love But the Gods intervene and Aeneas realizes their relationship cannot last, 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, Haunting and enigmatic Virgil s Eclogues combined a Greek literary form with scenes from contemporary Roman life to create a work that inspired a whole European tradition of pastoral poetry For despite their rustic setting and the beauty of their phrasing the poems in Virgil s first collection are also grounded in reality Shepherds are overwhelmed by the torments of poetic love but they must also endure such real life events as the tragic consequences of Julius Caesar s murder in bc and a civil war In giving unforgettable expression to the disasters of the day through poetry the Eclogues paved the way for the Georgics and the Aeneid the two greatest works of Latin literature and are also a major masterpiece in their own right, Virgil Publius Vergilius Maro was born in BCE near Mantua and was educated at Cremona Milan and Rome Slow in speech shy in manner thoughtful in mind weak in health he went back north for a quiet life Influenced by the group of poets there he may have written some of the doubtful poems included in our Virgilian manuscripts All his undoubted extant work is written in his perfect hexameters Earliest comes the collection of ten pleasingly artificial bucolic poems the Eclogues which imitated freely Theocritus s idylls They deal with pastoral life and love Before BCE came one of the best of all didactic works the four hooks of Georgics on tillage trees cattle and bees Virgil s remaining years were spent in composing his great not wholly finished epic the Aeneid on the traditional theme of Rome s origins through Aeneas of Troy Inspired by the Emperor Augustus s rule the poem is Homeric in metre and method but influenced also by later Greek and Roman literature philosophy and learning and deeply Roman in spirit Virgil died in BCE at Brundisium on his way home from Greece where he had intended to round off the Aeneid He had left in Rome a request that all its twelve books should be destroyed if he were to die then but they were published by the executors of his will br br The Loeb Classical Library edition of Virgil is in two volumes
