Le Guin ↠ E-book, or Kindle E-pub Young princess of Latium encounters a poet a soothsayer who foretells her future to marry a Trojan hero named Aeneas and found a great kingdom and a mighty dynastyLavinia's mother has other plans to marry It s interesting to contrast this with Margaret Atwood s Penelopiad Both explore one of the Big Classics The Aeneid in LeGuin s case the Odyssey in Atwood s from a female character s perspective LeGuin and Atwood are both stellar writers but I enjoyed Lavinia vastly LeGuin seems to have a real affection for her characters and that makes for a warmer humane book You can t tackle such a project without exploring the constraints placed on women in ancient times but again the authors take two very different approaches Atwood focuses on the oppression of women but LeGuin who has always shown an appreciation for the beauties of everyday life convincingly explores how women could find fulfillment and power within the roles allowed them

Free download Lavinia AUTHOR Ursula K. Le Guin ↠ E-book, or Kindle E-pub Her daughter off to an ambitious neighbouring king and her father is plagued with indecision But when a fleet of foreign warships sails into the mouth of the river Tiber Lavinia knows her destiny is calli Being 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 high school the whole thing in English and about half of it in Latin skipping around for the best bits or course and I was a huge pain in the ass I was convinced that Aeneas was a douche that Creusa got screwed over that Dido got royally screwed over and should have ripped Aeneas s balls off and that Lavinia was a breed sow with pretty hair My poor teacher tried again and again to calm me down to remind me of the historical context and cultural differences that should have been informing my reading of the poem to point out the elegance of the scansion or the cleverness of various poetic devices but I just didn t buy it I absorbed enough to ace the AP test but the Aeneid left a bad taste in my mouth When I got to college and read the Greek epics I was a bit better at detaching myself from the content of the poems so that I could appreciate their language and structure but I still had to work hard to keep a lid on my roiling feminist ire My biggest flaw as a historian the reason why I decided to teach Latin to middle schoolers instead of going to graduate school is that I get too emotionally invested in whatever I am studying and am unable to confine my judgments to the appropriate historical context I may acknowledge the fact that Aeneas was the model of pietas for his time and place but in the here and now he d be a douche and I just can t forget thatThis is why Lavinia is such a wonderful book Le Guin does that forgetting for me She is able to immerse herself in a different time and place and culture in a way that is judgment free and she sells this world in such a way that I buy it And like it And enjoy it The angry feminist pot ceases to boil I actually like this Aeneas He seems to be a nice guy I really like and identify with this Lavinia and I support her choices whereas in the Aeneid I simply pitied her for not having any choices I understand and appreciate a concept of pietas that is completely different from the kind of piety or rightness I seek in my own life in a way that I was never able to understand it when I was reading the actual Aeneid Part of what makes this novel work for me is the way she strips the story of Aeneas of its Augustan influences Vergil originally wrote the poem as a propaganda piece for the emperor okay maybe that wasn t his only purpose but he had to throw it in there to keep the people in charge happy and the ostentatious wealth and fantastical religion it promotes help divorce it from reality and make it harder to relate to Le Guin s simpler version feels much authentic and relatableI did find the book a little hard to get into and I had a hard time wrapping my mind around the relationship between Lavinia and Vergil But overall I found it an extremely enjoyable and readable story that left me with warm fuzzies inside It may actually motivate me to reread the Latin Aeneid sometime soon ish if I can find my old book and to not be full of fiery rage when I do That s a good thing right Vietnam Perkasie plagued with indecision But when a fleet of foreign warships sails into the mouth of the river Tiber Lavinia knows
