A eulogy to Italy as the temperate land of perpetual spring and a celebration of the values of rustic piety i The Georgics i is probably the supreme achievement of Latin poetry, Virgil Volume Ii Aeneid Books Appendix Vergiliana Loeb Classical Library No 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 books 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, 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, 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
