LiBRI: Virgil’s Inferno. Memory and Reality in the Sixth Book of Aeneid

Roxana Maria Fanuţ from West University of Timisoara has developed a study on Virgil’s Inferno, with an emphasis on the Memory and Reality in the Sixth Book of Aeneid.

This paper looks to offer a clearer picture of how the Underworld was outlined and deciphered by Augustus` most productive artist: Publius Vergilius Maro. The issues to be talked about are the relationship amongst reality and fiction in the 6th book of Aeneid and the part of memory in the making of Inferno.

Aeneas’ Flight from Troy by Federico Barocci

Another issue put in discourse is the part of insidiousness in common life in the Ancient Rome, a general public that envisioned an Underworld ruled by one god: Hades, an alternate sort of ruler that the other underworld divine beings from concurrent societies.

In his Inferno, the Augustan artist offers a picture of how the considerable Roman Empire was, and more imperative, how it needed to be seen before successors. The fundamental ideals declared by Augustus through his Pax Romana are to be found in the national epopee, yet are these thoughts changing the picture of the Inferno?

Amazingly intriguing is in how the politically thoughts are consolidated with the religious ones, and the Shield of Anchises is one of the best case on demonstrating a considerable lot of Augustus thoughts which are to be found in Virgil`s Underworld.

The sublime fate of Rome is seen from the past, which is not to be overlooked, as it can be seen from the start of Anchises` discourse, when simply after the clarification of life`s meaning the peruser can see the Roman warriors and the unexpected passing of Marcellus.

The objective of this paper is to characterize the idea of insidiousness and inferno, as it is portrayed in Virgil`s Aeneid, and to see and inspect the part of memory in making the past, the future and the underworld in the Augustan Rome.

Managing three layers of hermeneutics: the legendary or the Homeric one, the ethical one and the philosophical one, this paper tries to offer a more obviously picture of Virgil`s world and underworld, because of the way that one is developed after the other.

In his Inferno, the Augustan writer offers a picture of how the colossal Roman Empire was, and more critical, how it needed to be found before descendants.

The hermeneutic circle of Virgil`s Inferno isn`t shut, and he is prove by the its numerous reasons: the legendary reason, the philosophical one, what’s more, the philological one.

The point of Virgil`s delineation of inferno is all things considered, a proclamation. It speaks to the historical backdrop of Roman Empire with all its impediment, the part of memory, the significance of religious precept, and the god-like force of divine beings, who are deciding human`s fate.
