Take back with you this consolation, O young man, that in a calm retreat the shades await both your father and your house, and in a cloudless region of the realm keep a place for the Pompeys. Fantham, Elaine. Rome with its citizens and subject peoples, a Rome that could well hold the whole human race collected, was left a ready prize to Caesar, by cowardly hands. Braund, Susanna M.

    Yet such depths of fear must be forgiven; Pompey himself in flight gave cause for fear. The Bellum civile, his only extant poem, is an account of the war between Julius Caesar and Pompey, carried down to the arrival of Caesar in Egypt after the murder of Pompey, when it stops abruptly in the middle of the 10th book. Pompey's son Sextus goes to consult Thessalian witches about the outcome: their powers are described. Just so flashes out the thunderbolt shot forth by the winds through clouds, accompanied by the crashing of the heavens and sound of shattered ether; it splits the sky and terrifies the panicked people, searing eyes with slanting flame; against its own precincts it rages, and, with nothing solid stopping its course, both as it falls and then returns great is the devasation dealt far and wide before it gathers again its scattered fires. Then, at his orders, the fearful citizens circled the city while the pontiffs empowered to perform the task cleansed the walls with solemn lustration, marching around the sacred pomerium, the boundary of the city.

    Civil war is almost a price worth paying that neither should. Book I Arruns reads the future So they chose to follow ancient custom and summon Etruscan seers. Cambridge, Massachusetts: Harvard Univ. She has stolen the iron driven into hands, the black and putrid liquid trickling through the limbs and the congealed slime and, if muscle resisted her bite, she has tugged with all her weight. As the stars fled the light and the morning star shone alone, he entered nearby Ariminum, bringing terror. Appalled by the dark outcome, Arruns grew pale, and snatched up the entrails to read the cause of divine anger.

Masters devotes an entire chapter to this hypothesis in his book Poetry and Civil War in Lucan's Bellum Civilearguing that by being open-ended and ambiguous, the poem's conclusion avoids "any kind of resolution, but [still] preserves the unconventional premises of its subject-matter: evil without alternative, contradiction without compromise, civil war without end.

Unhappy men! Threatening Catiline exults, his fetters burst and shattered, and savage Marii and bare Cethegi; myself I saw rejoice those radical names: [] the Drusi with their laws excessive, the Gracchi of enormous daring [] Their hands applauded, though eternal knots of iron and Dis's prison confined them, and the guilty multitude demands the fields of the blest.

A far place was appointed for his undeserved destruction. So the slender Isthmus divides the waves, and separates two seas, forbidding their waters to merge; and yet if the land were withdrawn, the Ionian would break on the Aegean.

ISBN Sextus' visit to the Thracian witch Erichtho provides an example; the scene and language clearly reference Aeneas' descent into the underworld also in Book VIbut while Virgil's description highlights optimism toward the future glories of Rome under Augustan rule, Lucan uses the scene to present a bitter and gory pessimism concerning the loss of liberty under the coming empire.

The Druids laid down their weapons and returned to their barbaric rites and alien modes of worship. Sulla, unmoved, sat at ease, viewing dreadful deeds from on high; unabashed at his passing sentence on so many thousands of wretched folk. Perseus provides credit for all accepted changes, storing new additions in a versioning system.

Now the altered colours of the eastern sky gave notice of the sun about to rise, and the reddened sky, not white as yet, robbed the nearest stars of their light; the Pleiades grew faint, Bootes circling Wain, dimming, merged indistinguishably with the sky, the brighter stars were quenched, the morning star fled before the light of day.

It would be no less wide than the Nile, did Nile not flood the Libyan sands beyond the levels of low-lying Egypt; and no less mightier than the Danube, if the Danube did not in its course gather the waters that might have flowed to other shores, leading them to the Euxine sea.

Are you a champion of peace, following your path, unchanged, amidst a shaken world, or have you chosen to join with those leaders in crime, share in the evils of a maddened nation, and so absolve the war-makers of guilt?

Lucan: De Bello Ciuili Book VII

If Rome, then, has such a love of illicit war, let her yet bring the whole earth under her rule, before turning on herself; she has never yet lacked enemies. I return to you, weary, worn from child-bearing, unwilling now to be given to some other man.

As the stars fled the light and the morning star shone alone, he entered nearby Ariminum, bringing terror. Caesar continues south through Italy and is delayed by Domitius' brave resistance.

His view is that Lucan's attitude to Caesarianism is constant throughout the poem: "Nothing in books one to three reaches the same fever pitch of the invective against empire in book seven, but it is in the nature of a climax, such as Pharsalus, that more emphatic statements of thematic preoccupations come to the fore" 7.
