With this annotated translation of his commentary on Book Four of the Aeneid we hope to make Servius (not the thornier Servius auctus) accessible to more of these readers: first to those who, though they may have an interest in his Virgil commentary, have neither the Latin nor the patience to deal with Servius in the raw; second, to students of.

This is a a difficult question, because the Georgics of Virgil are hard to understand. The end of book one describes the many portents that took place at the murder of Julius Caesar. If we take. Servius confused “the end of the Eclogues ” with “the end of the Georgics ” and (at Ecl.

) fabricated the myth that Georgics 4 originally contained the praises of Gallus and that after the poet’s disgrace Augustus ordered Virgil to excise all mention of Gallus from the poem; whereupon it was replaced by the Aristaeus episode.

A certain Augustan ‘rehabilitation’ of Bacchus may be traced in Virgil’s Georgics, in response to the god’s role in the self-presentation of Mark Antony, especially with reference to the movement on the worship of Bacchus in Book 2. An analysis of the ritual elements is offered here.

Nonetheless, certain references to Bacchus in the Georgics suggest that he is a volatile symbol. half his course: the grass withered, and deep rivers were heated. and baked, by the rays at their parched sources, down to the mud, when Proteus came from the sea, to find his customary cave.

Round him the moist race of the vast sea frolicked, scattering the salt spray far and wide. The seals lay down to sleep here and there on the shore. III.

But note that Virgil seems to anticipate an aestheticism of this kind in his explanation of the reason for planting vines in regular. Meanwhile his dear children hang on his lips, his chaste house guards its purity, the cows drop milky udders, and the fat kids butt each other, horn against horn, on the pleasant grass.

He himself has a holiday, and stretched on the ground, with a fire in the middle, he calls to you, Bacchus. Servius, the 5 th century AD grammarian and commentator on Vergil, is a well-known name; less well-known, however, is that what we have is Servius Auctus: for—probably in the seventh century—a ‘Compiler’ fused with his text of Servius another ancient commentary, that of Donatus (4 th century), which itself had served as one of the main.

The Georgics is not a handbook on husbandry. Landowners turned to M. Terrentius Varro for such needs, or, later, to Pliny the Elder. Nor do the Georgics give us a real picture of contemporary life.

Servius says that Vergil wrote it as a treatise on agriculture in imitation of Hesiod’s Works and Days. Commentators point out that there were Hellenistic sources on which he drew such as Aratus’ Phaenomena for the connection between seasons and constellations, and Nicander’s Georgics which survives only in fragments.
