    eBook Lavinia MOBI ¼ Õ pamyatnik.pro lavinia free, Lavinia PDF/EPUBIs it possible that Ursula K LeGuin can write a bad book?I guess anything is possible I could win the lottery get hit by a meteorite struck by lightning etc All very low probabilitiesAs expected this is beautifully written and crafted with an inspired structure Telling the story of Lavinia who in Vergil’s great work Aenid did not speak a word; LeGuin describes the princess’s story in that of an almost pre historic and pagan setting This is really the element of this story that I will take with me this vision of a simple life when Rome was not yet founded and the hills in what would someday become the greatest city in the world were populated with early tribes farms and lives that would be legendLeGuin creates an unusual narrative device in which Lavinia comes to know “her poet” as Vergil is illuminated as a time travelling specter from the future mystically visiting his subject as he survived a fever dream in the time of Augustus Interestingly almost in an existentia

    eBook Lavinia MOBI ¼ Õ pamyatnik.pro lavinia free, Lavinia PDF/EPUBDNF at page 180I’m sad I thought I’d love this but there doesn’t seem to be anything different in here than is in The Aeneid It’s just from Lavinia’s perspective but all the events are the same and I’m bored 😑

    eBook Lavinia MOBI ¼ Õ pamyatnik.pro lavinia free, Lavinia PDF/EPUBI thought this book was boring There I said it Even though it had passion war bloodshed royal intrigue suicide I found it boring and it was difficult for me to convince myself to continue reading it I am a classic history buff which this novel has loads of but it still couldn't grip my interest The tone of the book was uiet and ghostly very in the past so I never felt anything immediate It was a story told by someone who remembered facts places names etc and spoke of emotion but I never felt it I think this book was well reviewed so I am sure many people would have a different experience I was just not that keen on it

    eBook Lavinia MOBI ¼ Õ pamyatnik.pro lavinia free, Lavinia PDF/EPUB“I am not the feminine voice you may have expected”When my father told me that Ursula LeGuin had put out a new novel I was as I usually am ecstatic LeGuin is one of my all time favorite authors and I can’t think of time when she’s written something that has somehow failed to engage entertain or intrigue me The fact that she was apparently riffing off Virgil’s Aeneid was just icing on the cake for this poor excuse for a classical studies majorWhen the book arrived I found myself looking at the cover and suddenly wondering what the heck this book was about As much as I tried I could not remember the character of Lavinia from my previous readings of the Aeneid in the slightest the best I could do was to temporarily confuse her with Dido My guilt at my poor powers of memory was a bit assuaged when after some checking I realized that Lavinia only b

    eBook Lavinia MOBI ¼ Õ pamyatnik.pro lavinia free, Lavinia PDF/EPUBBack when I studied Latin we were given bits of Virgil's Aeneid to translate I always found it to be a chore as poetry is challenging to translate than textbook translating exercises like Roma est in Italia Still I thought I knew the piece sufficiently until hearing that Ursula Le Guin had written a book about a character from Aeneid but having no idea who Lavinia was Having now read Aeneid in its translated entirety I can't really fault myself for not remembering Lavinia She has no spoken lines no characterization and her function in the story is simply to be the prize of uarreling factions In other words hers was a story that

    eBook Lavinia MOBI ¼ Õ pamyatnik.pro lavinia free, Lavinia PDF/EPUB Oh never and forever aren't for mortals loveLe Guin writes wonderful women and stories that honor them Lavinia is a whole book written from the perspective of a character that never utters a word in Vergil's epic The Aeneid It tells of all the life that happens between the glorious battles the farming the herding hunting and reading of the auspices caring for the hearth gods weaving songs and observances the reasons we war in the first place I think if you have lost a great happiness and try to recall it you're only asking for sorrow but if you do not try to dwell on the happiness sometimes you find it dwelling in your heart and body silent but sustaining Lavinia is presented as an ideal female a faithful daughter dedicated wife and strong mother The transitions between those phases is beautifully narrated I especially fo

    eBook Lavinia MOBI ¼ Õ pamyatnik.pro lavinia free, Lavinia PDF/EPUBI think I'm incapable of disliking a Le Guin book So 5 stars it isI'm not a huge fan of the retelling of mythological stories and the like from the stand point of a woman But this was written by Le Guin and here I am I have had this on my shelf since shortly after it was written I bought it in hardcover in Missoula where my brother lives But the real reason that I've waited so long to

    eBook Lavinia MOBI ¼ Õ pamyatnik.pro lavinia free, Lavinia PDF/EPUBBeing a lady classicist often reuires willful acts of cognitive dissonance It's not just that nearly all your extant source material was written by men about men for men it's also that Greek and Roman culture particularly the culture portrayed in the great epics the Iliad the Odyssey and the Aeneid is brutally testosterone fueled and flagrantly anti woman In epic the worst women are pure unadulterated evil monsters like Scylla Charybdis and the Sirens Slightly less evil are those who use their sexual wiles to distract men from their noble purposes Circe Calypso Dido And good women are those who simply shut the fuck up bear legitimate children and get out of the way Andromache Penelope Creusa This makes reading epic a challenging experience for any woman who is looking for than just a rollicking adventure storyI read the Aeneid in
