Sample text

It is won by treachery and cruelty. To this Homer's Achaeans have degenerated. The criticism of the heroic type which Virgil gives in his Sack of Troy is not his only approach to it. It shows one side of the question as he saw it, but only one side. It was as clear to him, as to others, that an ideal which had in its time exerted so great an influence on the world, could not be entirely like this, though at times it might degenerate to this. Indeed his task almost forced him to take another, more favourable view The great corpse lies upon the shore, A severed head, a trunk without a name.

We cannot doubt that Virgil meant us to feel that Turnus was a noble and heroic figure and that his death was not a mere incident in the foundation of Rome nor a punishment for resisting the divine plan. He stresses the nobility and the pathos of Turnus, and both must have had some relevance to his general plan. Turnus is a tragic figure and his death is a tragic event. He dies because he opposes the inevitable and predestined rise of Rome, but that does not mean that we should rejoice in his death or condemn him in all that he does.

43 VIRGIL AND THE IDEAL OF ROME of it ; for if the Augustan Romans sought to be compared with heroes, the heroic ideal must have some dignity and appeal. Virgil's more friendly feelings about it may be seen in his characterisation of Turnus. The Rutulian prince who defends Latium against Aeneas and his Trojans is one of Virgil's most convincing creations. He has the vitality and nobility of a Homeric hero, and we are forced to admire him and even to sympathise with him. Virgil delineates him with care and love, and in him, much more than in the degenerate Neoptolemus, we learn the poet's feelings about a hero.
