THE DREAM OF HECTOR

Lines 269-280

Tempus erat quo prima quies mortalibus aegris

incipit et dono diuum gratissima serpit.

in somnis, ecce, ante oculos maestissimus Hector 270

uisus adesse mihi largosque effundere fletus,

raptatus bigis ut quondam, aterque cruento

puluere perque pedes traiectus lora tumentis.

ei mihi, qualis erat, quantum…

It was the time when sleep first began for weary mortals and stole over them most pleasantly like a gift from the Gods. In my dreams, behold,

before my eyes most sorrowful Hector seemed to be in my presence pouring out copious tears, as he was when once dragged along…

AENEAS ON THE ROOF

Lines 298-308

Diuerso interea miscentur moenia luctu,

et magis atque magis, quamquam secreta parentis

Anchisae domus arboribusque obtecta recessit, 300

clarescunt sonitus armorumque ingruit horror.

excutior somno et summi fastigia tecti

ascensu supero atque arrectis auribus asto:

in segetem ueluti cum flamma furentibus Austris

incidit, aut…

Meanwhile the walls were in confusion with lamentation on either side, and greater and greater, although my father Anchises' house was

secluded, set back and overshadowed by trees, the sounds of battle were growing clear and horror advanced threateningly. I was shaken out

of sleep and I surmounted the highest…

TROY IN FLAMES

Lines 309-317

tum uero manifesta fides, Danaumque patescunt

insidiae. iam Deiphobi dedit ampla ruinam 310

Volcano superante domus, iam proximus ardet

Vcalegon; Sigea igni freta lata relucent.

exoritur clamorque uirum clangorque tubarum.

arma amens capio; nec sat rationis in armis,

sed glomerare manum bello et concurrere in…

Then really was the truth clear and the treachery of the Greeks revealed. Now Deiphobus' large house crashed in ruins with Vulcan

overpowering it, now neighbouring Ucalegon's house was burning; the broad straits of Sigeum glowed back with fire. Men's shouting arose

and the blare of trumpets. Out of my…

Tum uero omne mihi uisum considere in ignis

Ilium et ex imo uerti Neptunia Troia: 625

ac ueluti summis antiquam in montibus ornum

cum ferro accisam crebrisque bipennibus instant

eruere agricolae certatim, illa usque minatur

et tremefacta comam concusso uertice nutat,

uulneribus donec paulatim euicta supremum 630

congemuit traxitque iugis…

Then in truth all of Ilium seemed to me to sink into flames and Neptune's Troy to be turned over from its foundations: and as when high in the

mountains farmers eagerly press on to uproot an ancient ash tree they have hacked with frequent strikes of the double bladed…
