THEY CAN CONUER WHO BELIEVE THEY CAN THEY CAN BECAUSE THEY THINK THEY CANNow isn t that a nifty uick analysis of how faith works That s Virgil talkingFaith in oneself or Faith in a Higher BeingLet s take a closer lookVirgil left off writing this masterpiece a mere twenty years before the Star appeared over ancient Bethlehem And of course the Aeneid gave the worldly Romans hope for a brighter future at the same time when their history was beginning its long slow decline into moral chaos It inspired them to believe that a semi divine Trojan named Aeneas had given them ideals worth dying forWith not much respect due to Troy s ancient conuerors the GreeksCoincidenceSure it was political propaganda commissioned by Augustus through Virgil s noble mentor MaecenasBut don t forget that many of the same Roman readers of this runaway bestseller were fathers of the first Italian Christian converts The domino effect was about to play its handEarly Christian apologists looking for grist for their mills would soon see in Virgil s groundbreaking ideas about a blissful afterlife in the Elysian Fields for ordinary good people as well as Homer s heroes an announcement of the Lord s freely offered and freely withheld salvationDid I say Homer That s another thingApproximately concurrent with all of this was the disastrous destruction by fire of Alexandria s priceless library the last detailed link with the pre Roman Greek worldSo now books like this one were suddenly a prime source for imaginative myth makingIt is hard to imagine such inspired living as the Knights of the Round Table or early books of such high mindedness as Piers Plowman or Sir Gawain and the Green Knight existing without the nobility of the AeneidLet alone the higher mathematics and calculus of the Ottoman Empire against whom Europe Crusaded Enemies don t share secrets alasOr even the late medieval romances how much Latin magic is in the Holy GrailThe Greeks so sybaritic in their literature and such a springboard in their stories for the imagination had little or no influence on our serious Medieval European ancestors The very dearth of Hellenic playfulness gave our ancestors their dour mindset Perhaps in an age of starting from scratch again and rebuilding that grim mindset is bestSo the popular faith and imagination of the Middle Ages derived largely from books like thisEven Aeneas triumphant victory over Turnus was seen by clerics as a divine allegory of the victory over evilAnd who s to say they were so WRONG thoughBut with that Church censorship was also beginning and Roman freedoms were eventually going to be curtailedBut freedom has radically different restrictions as Age progresses to Age and while we postmodernists seem to have fewer we in fact have migrated to much less privacyEvery age has its manner of dealing with anarchy Ours is surveillanceBut to the Church MORAL Anarchy was the most perilous type of chaos thanks to Nero and Caligula And for the future of European civilization It seems in hindsight to have been the right attitudeIt s like your parents weeding out any bad influences on you as you grew up can THAT be such a bad thing Most good parents do it or used toSure there ll be some Major adjustments for the kids later on but if they have an active intelligence they ll catch up in plenty of time though the transition from na ve innocence to cosmic disappointment is vastAnd without the firm foothold of faith well nigh impossibleSimilarly could the seed of a great religion of love and compassion have taken root without the concurrent sowing of the nobility that the Aeneid has in men s mindsCould Christianity have spread like wildfire throughout the fallen Empire without itSure I know I m REACHING a bit to make my pointBut whatever your own views the Aeneid is the great Medieval Desert Island Book one of the only great ancient imaginative yarns the serious and violent early Middle Ages really hadA true oasis for the souls of those who were lost and confused in that scattered moral debris before the Fall of the Colossus that was the Roman EmpireAnd an ethical bedrock

Book Review 3 out of 5 stars to The Aeneid a classic work written in 17 BC by Virgil In The Aeneid Virgil creates two vastly different archetypal heroes named Turnus and Aeneas Aeneas is a Trojan prince who has hopes of finding a new Troy in the land of Latium but he runs into an angered Turnus a Rutulian prince that does not welcome Aeneas Both men are eually strong eually determined and have eual and rightful claim to the land However Virgil creates this distinct difference and hatred between the men that leads to the profound greatness of Rome Turnus is a Rutulian prince who is planning on marrying Lavinia the princess of Latium He is courageous when he defends his people in the war against the Trojans Book IX and X brilliant in his plans to attack the Trojan camp p207 yet motivated to win for purely personal goals Turnus sacrifices public welfare and the good of the state just to defeat Aeneas and win the battle and Lavinia Aeneas is also a prince who is planning on marrying Lavinia He is caring when he looks back for his late wife Creusa p57 respectful and loving when his father dies p80 and driven when he continues his journey to find a new Troy p103 However unlike Turnus Aeneas is truly unselfish in his reasons for wanting Latium Aeneas wants to settle the land for his people and their families to find a new Troy Aeneas does not want the land to be selfish Both Turnus and Aeneas have determination behind them physical and mental strength behind them yet most of all the gods behind them With the help of Juno Turnus fights till the end avoiding several near deaths such as Pallas arrow and his jump into the Tiber River fully ard Similar to Turnus Aeneas mother helps Aeneas by giving him protection with the creation of the shield p198 and when she heals Aeneas wound with the special potion p 302 Turnus and Aeneas up until this point have no differences They are identical in their strengths weaknesses and support However the one major difference between them is that Aeneas has destiny behind him He is fated to take care of his Trojan people find a new Troy marry Lavinia and bear descendants to establish the great city of Rome Aeneas has no choice but to win the war and Lavinia s hand in marriage Turnus must lose and somehow suffer He cannot escape his fate Virgil makes use of the difference between the two heroes using antagonism hatred and most of all the superiority of Aeneas to show the greatness of Rome At the time The Aeneid was written Augustus Caesar was in power and the Pax Romana was beginning Rome was in a state of absolute reign and greatness Virgil makes use of the character Aeneas to show the greatness of his friend Octavian or Augustus Caesar He uses the difference between the two heroes to show that by destiny via Aeneas an ancestor of Octavian Caesar Rome will lead the world in philosophy art and intelligence etc Turnus is good but Aeneas is better and so is the new emperor Caesar With Octavian Caesar in control Rome will become even greater than it is Virgil accomplishes his goal of glorifying Rome and its leader Augustus Caesar Virgil creates a strong similarity between Turnus and Aeneas however the major characteristic of these two heroes is that Aeneas is destined to win and Turnus to lose This difference greatly surpasses the likeness between the two men and leads to the exaltation and glorification of Rome If Augustus Caesar is anywhere similar to Aeneas which he is as Virgil points out he will lead Rome to the tops And that is just what happens About Me For those new to me or my reviews here s the scoop I read A LOT I write A LOT And now I blog A LOT First the book review goes on Goodreads and then I send it on over to my WordPress blog at where you ll also find TV Film reviews the revealing and introspective 365 Daily Challenge and lots of blogging about places I ve visited all over the world And you can find all my social media profiles to get the details on the whowhatwhenwhere and my pictures Leave a comment and let me know what you think Vote in the poll and ratings Thanks for stopping by

There are plenty of reviews here telling you why you should or shouldn t read book X This review of Virgil s Aeneid the largely completed first century BC nationalist epic poem that recounts the Trojan War and Aeneas s role in the eventual founding of Rome will tell you instead why you should read a copy of Aeneid from a university library Simply put student annotations Nearly every book in a university catalog has been checked out at one time or another by a student reading it as primary or supplemental material for class Thus many books have important passages underlined major themes listed at the beginnings of chapters and clarifications written in the margins The copy of Aeneid that I read not only contained thematic annotations from one student but also a number of unintentionally funny comments from another This made reading the epic poem the sort of which spends five pages describing Aeneas s shield much entertaining than it might have otherwise been For example beside a section in which the longevity and glory of the Roman Empire was prophesied the befuddled student wrote But Rome fell did Virgil know this Ah yes Virgil the time traveling super poet who cleverly peppered his verse with chronologically ironic statements The same annotator observed that Dido s downfall is that she s too nice apparently feuding goddesses had nothing to do with it and produced a mind boggling series of rhetorical ueries that demonstrate the importance of using context when deciphering pronouns in poetry hint the closest noun isn t always the antecedent Sadly the annotator only made it about a third of the way through the poem before either realizing that heshe could glean the crucial bits from lectureWikipedia or dropping the class As a result I was forced to pencil in similar comments in order to make it through the rest of the poem The moral of this story is that though you may get the occasional bonehead marking up your book reading a book that others have commented on previously gives an undeniable sense of camraderie As in any interaction with strangers you may be happily surprised disappointed or surprised into laughter I highly recommend the experience to all
