This winter festival was called. Many scholars have pointed out how the Sun- worshipping Mithraists, the Sun-worshipping Manicheans and the Christians were all syncretised and reconciled when Constantine led the take-over by Christianity[ However, other Sun-worshipping groups were included too, because of the general importance and popularity of Sol Invictus, the Invincible Sun-deity. Mario Righetti, a renowned Catholic liturgist, writes, "the Church of Rome, to facilitate the acceptance of the faith by the pagan masses, found it convenient to institute the 25th December as the feast of the temporal birth of Christ, to divert them from the pagan feast, celebrated on the same day in honour of the 'Invincible Sun', Mithras.
In these solemnities and festivities the Christians also took part. Hutton highlights the role that the celebration of light has had through all the threads of history that combined to become part of the symbols of modern Christmas. It must also be clear that many Christmas customs are, as we heard from Moojan Momen and Prof. Hutton, very ancient. But they have in present centuries been combined with the very modern phenomenon of commercialism.
Pagan sun-worshippers divided the sky into 12 zodiacs, which is why Jesus, Mithras and other god-men had 12 disciples. Christmas day, by other names, "was the ancient feast-day of the Sun, in the depths of winter", pre-dating Christianity1. But the exact date of the Winter Solstice changes slowly over time. Today it falls around 22 December"6.
The Roman religion of Mithraism, which existed for hundreds of years before Christians started celebrating Christmas, holds that the birth of Mithras was on the 25th of December. In another coincidence, the birth of Mithras was also said 'to have been witnessed by three shepherds'7. The most skeptical view of modern Christmas is that the fads, decorations, festive goods and all the paraphernalia are a commercial scam to make us spend money on over-priced useless goods.
However true this is, it has also become a secular social festival much akin to the American thanksgiving. Families come together at Christmas even if they do not for the rest of the year. It probably helps that Christmas and New Year's celebrations have become institutionally intertwined. These make Christmas in essence a meaningful family celebration, even if on top of that there is a thick cover of shallow commercialism. The festivities are largely led by commerce and retail outlets: The relevant decorations, cards, food and goods are all marketed for Christmas, and it is the High Streets that press Christmas upon the populace way before the populace itself is ready.
It is a frequent complaint that stores start Christmas "too early" and too aggressively. Several elements of Christmas are the invention purely of commercial advertisements. Take the example of the commercial invention of the Christmas card; with corporate effort, these would have remained an expensive privilege of the rich.
By it was often carried on among the wealthier classes by sending a short poem engraved within an ornamental framework. In , therefore, a fresh start was made by the stationers Messrs Charles Goodall, which printed cheap plain greetings. By the end of the decade they were becoming decorated, and other firms were producing them.
The human figurehead of the festive season is a modern creation; before the seventeenth century such a figure has no history. It was done then partly because of the general taste of the age for allegory and partly because the criticism of observation of the feast by radical Protestants made a representation of it convenient to writers determined to defend it. Thus in Ben Jonson introduced to the world, Christmas His Masque, presented a figure 'in a round hose, long stockings, a close doublet, a high-crowned hat with a brooch, a long thin beard, a truncheon, little ruffs, white shoes, his scarfs, and garters tied cross.
He was essentially concerned with the adult world, personifying feasting and games, he had no connection with presents, and he was not treated with much respect, being generally a burlesque figure of fun. Then Santa Claus turned up. In origins he was, of course, the medieval patron of children, St Nicholas, who remained a favourite popular figure amongst the Dutch.
Irving's portrait was repeated in an issue of the Children's Friend, published in the same city, and that may have been the direct inspiration to another New Yorker, Clement Clark Moore, to create the modern Santa. He wore fur cloths, had a bushy white beard, traveled through the sky merrily in a sleigh drawn by reindeer, and came down chimneys with a sack of gifts. From , Haddon Sundblom the illustrator for Coca Cola "drew a series of Santa images in their Christmas advertisements until "10, which is where the tradition of a Santa Claus wearing red comes from.
The colours red and green had always been prominent in Christmas card greetings, however. Prominent elements of Christmas are commercial inventions, from Father Christmas and his suit to Christmas Cards. The history of commercialist Christmas is older still than those creations.
From the s onwards, The Times broadsheet could be relied upon to attack the commercialism of Christmas Clearly, its commercialisation has not destroyed it and since the nineteenth century, it has become even more popular than ever. To remove the commercial aspects of Christmas would be largely to destroy it; religious activists would create in its place a series of historically-challenged myths and break it into a sectarian event.
Without commercialism the general populace, Protestant Christians, secularists and evangelical Christians would all cease to have anything in common during the festive season. Despite the nature-reveration, pagan festivals and sun-worship that formed the basis of the Christmas period, Christians sometimes complain that the 'original' Christian message is ignored at Christmas.
Such modern Christians do not know its history. Christian Churches have themselves led long and bitter campaigns against the observance of Christmas and in various times and places banned it completely. The religious content was always very small, with most celebrations and rituals being secular i. Major elements of Christmas are simply commercial inventions based on themes of nature, such as Christmas cards:. Examples from before of which the Jonathan King collection has , show an overwhelming concentration upon the natural world and upon jollity.
Modern-day Christmas frequently contains modern Christian elements. Not least of all, in English, the word 'Christmas' is the one we are all familiar with, moreso than Yule or Winter Solstice. Nativity stories are taken from the Christian tradition - even though the ideas of shepherds, wise men and the like were all originally pagan, the stories are now told with Christian overtones at Christmas.
There is no evidence or reason to believe that they actually occurred. Christians of the first few centuries did not know for certain where Jesus was born, where he died, or where he was buried. This fact is bemoaned by early Christian leaders. When they did celebrate Christmas, they generally did so in April and May. December 25 the day of Sol Invictus, the invincible sun was decided upon.
Not coincidentally, that is the day when the "pagan world celebrated the birth of their Sun Gods -- Egyptian Osiris, Greek Apollo and Bacchus, Chaldean Adonis, Persian Mithra -- when the Zodiacal sign of Virgo the sun is born of a virgin rose on the horizon.
Thus the ancient festival of the Winter Solstice, the pagan festival of the birth of the Sun, came to be adopted by the Christian Church as the nativity of Jesus, and was called Christmas" The reasons that the Christians annexed the Winter Solstice, and chose to celebrate Christmas in December instead of Spring, was that influential Roman religions celebrated the birth of the sun-of-the-sun on the Winter Solstice, and the first Christian emperor fused paganism and early Christianity, to create the Pauline Christianity that we know today Jeremiah says that bringing trees indoors and decorating is pagan, and Christians shouldn't do it.
The rhetoric that Christians have used against the celebration of Christmas pre-dates Christianity and originated with Jewish mores against the celebration of birthdays plus their wish to avoid pagan practices. In the book of Jeremiah, 7th century BCE15, it warns Jews and Christians not to "learn the ways" of pagans who bring trees into their homes and decorate them with silver and gold:. For the customs of the peoples are worthless; they cut a tree out of the forest, and a craftsman shapes it with his chisel.
They adorn it with silver and gold; they fasten it with hammer and nails so it will not totter. The first Christians were Jewish converts such as the Nazarenes and Ebionites. Such early Christians and Jews did not celebrate birthdays because they considered it a pagan practice. There are no Christian birthday celebrations in the Bible.
It was related, said early Christians, to pagan representation of sun cycles. For these reasons, Biblical fundamentalists do not celebrate birthdays, including Christmas. One such group is the Jehovah's Witnesses. Genesis ; Mark The suspicion of birthdays and the fact that there are no written first-hand records of Jesus or his life, mean that it has long been impossible to work out when he was born.
Modern Christian fundamentalists and evangelicals tell Christians not to celebrate Christmas. The Scottish reformers of the sixteenth, seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, for example, claimed that the "Papists" Catholics had invented all the rites of Christmas so they abolished the lot of them. Despite a few desperate efforts upon both sides to find some scriptural indication of the true date of Christ's birth, a common ground was established almost at once; that as there was indeed no objective evidence of when Christ was born, the feast of the Nativity was wholly a creation of later authorities and supported by tradition and not the Bible.
A Parliamentary act repeated [the ban on Christmas] In New England, where celebrating Christmas was considered a criminal offense and remained forbidden until the second half of the nineteenth century Christians nowadays who proclaim that we should "remember the reason for the reason" are ignorant of their own religion and of the history of paganism.
These graphs are from data published by the Church of England which show the percent of the total population of England and Wales involved. However in they commented on Christmas attendance and state higher values This is very similar to the phenomenon by which in official polls, about twice as many say they are religious as actually are. Some low-brow newspaper outlets pushed the idea for many years that the 'political-correctness-gone-mad' idea of Winterval was officialdom's replacement for Christmas.
The sensationalist idea was that because Christmas has the word 'Christ' in it, then, modern secular governments and councils could not support it. So, the types of newspapers that peddle anti-foreigner positions took up the story with gusto.
The Guardian blogger Kevin Ascott reported that the Daily Mail repeated the myth the most between and , a total of 44 times. The Guardian even mentioned it a few times however, it also ran several articles debunking the myth and in , the Daily Mail eventually faced its critics and admitted that it was wrong.
It said: 'We stated in an article on 26 September that Christmas has been renamed in various places Winterval. Winterval was the collective name for a season of public events, both religious and secular, which took place in Birmingham in and We are happy to make clear that Winterval did not rename or replace Christmas.
The true source of the story is that of one event promoter who combined several winter events including Christmas into one Winterval event in order to simplify marketing. From the Guardian:. The myth was not just repeated, either. It was also gradually distorted to become ever more removed from the original misconception. What started as a myth that one council had rebranded or renamed Christmas became a pluralised, open-ended narrative that 'councils' and 'authorities' were rebranding or renaming Christmas as 'Winterval'.
It then mutated from a simple rebranding to a calculated attack on Christianity by 'atheists', 'Muslims', or the 'PC brigade' who feared offending 'other faiths' or 'ethnic minorities'. In one extreme example, the South Wales Echo claimed that Winterval was the result of 'virulent attacks on religion by atheists', which had led to 'new rules such as Christmas being renamed as 'Winterval'. In all, at least 15 articles directly claim that Christmas was renamed Winterval because of a fear of offending 'other faiths'.
At least a further 10 articles directly claim that Winterval was used to avoid offending 'ethnic minorities'. So now, thanks to perhaps one repetition too far, the Daily Mail has finally admitted that Winterval is a media fiction. But what impact will those few lines of correction have compared with the huge body of journalism that has been repeating it for so long as fact?
And, more important, will Melanie Phillips offer her own apology for repeating the myth? When I first heard the story, I thought 'ridiculous' and didn't believe it was true. I spent a few minutes researching it, and found out that I was right to doubt. Therefore, my world-view was not distorted. Journalists broadcast their opinions to others, and it is downright criminal that failures in basic fact-checking can be so endemic amongst them.
Christmas is a multicultural, multi-religious festival. It combines sun worship, polytheism, pagan nature religions who have venerated the natural cycle for many thousands of years, Christianity and other myths and traditions. When Christians complain it is too pagan, or when lay folk complain it is too religious, or when both groups complain it is too commercial, then they are all in need of realizing that Christmas is a commercial fusion of diverse nature-based festivals.
The date of the 25th accords with Sun Worship thousands of years old, the Christmas tree and some of the decorations are pagan, even the Nativity stories are originally pagan, Mithraistic, Roman and Christian. The main outstanding issue in the West is the Christian assertion that Christmas has something to do with the Christian figure of Christ or his birthday. These elements should be disclaimed. Firstly, the paganism inherent in Christmas, such as decorating trees, is warned against in the Bible Jeremiah Second, there are no Christian birthday celebrations in the Bible.
Thirdly, early Christians celebrated Christ's birthday in April or May - it was only changed to match with 25th of December, a major pagan holiday, by Emperor Constantine, in order to harmonize Christianity with paganism. It is certain that Christians should not attempt to celebrate Jesus' birthday, and they certainly shouldn't do so at Christmas. In addition to its rich history, Christmas has now become largely a secular holiday, a social festival based on the family, and a commercial enterprise.
Critics largely concentrate of the portions of Christmas they don't like, and claim that those portions ruin the rest of it. As long as no-one tries to "capture the flag" and exclude others, then there need be no modern conflict over the nature of Christmas. The non-religious can celebrate the commercial and social event, Christians can pretend Christmas has something to do with Christ, pagans can celebrate nature, and all can be happy. There are even alternative and well-known names for Christmas, such as Yuletide, which can be used according to taste.
Whether or not one choses to celebrate Christmas is mostly a matter of mood! The position that Islam has, or will have, in the world has a great deal to do with how the Muslims look at it, and to what extent they practise on its teachings. There was a time when Islam was running through every vein in a Muslim's body, and his actions were a living portrait of the glory and beauty of Islam, so the flag of Islam fluttering proudly in the sky, lifted by the winds of success.
The non-Muslims could not dare to question Islamic concepts, because living examples of Islamic perfection were in front of them. When the spirit of Islam started drifting away from the hearts of the Muslims, their bodies were no longer inclined to take all measures, undergo all hardships to practise their flawless religion. The new place for Islam was not a strong firm heart, but a dark, dusty corner in the human mind.
It would no longer be nurtured and cared for, upheld and protected by the warmth of love and devotion, but would now be probed and dissected by the cold, merciless and unfeeling instruments of intellect, theory and logic. It was no longer a deep feeling, a faith or way of life, but had become a set of rules, a doctrine or constitution like the ones made by man, to be amended and abridged at will.
Where did we go wrong? The answer is simple. We left the pattern of life of our dear Prophet sallallaahu alaiyhi wasssallam who spent his days and nights, his sweat and blood, trying to teach us, and turned to what others had to offer. If we want our respect, dignity and position of honor back, we must revert to that same pattern.
This is why the subject of the noble practices of Rasulullah sallallaahu alaiyhi wasssallam Sunnah, holds so much weight. This article has been compiled as a reminder of one of the very important Sunnahs the beard. We hope that the readers will not only read it carefully, but will make a concerned effort to convey the information to others.
Allah Ta'ala prefers people who sin and admit their mistakes, over those who do good deeds and behave in a conceited manner. It's unfortunate that today we disobey Allah and instead of admitting it, find some sort of excuse to justify our misdeeds, even if it means criticizing the Shariah or inventing our own guidelines for what is important in Islam and what isn't. Below are some common excuses and reasons people use to explain why they don't keep a beard. If you examine these with an objective, Islamic mind you will see how weak and baseless they really are.
The purpose of this article is not to condemn anyone or label anyone under a certain category but, when we say 'Islamic awareness' it means Islamic awareness in its entirety, not just what seems appealing. And that is what we are trying to do, so that each Muslim can at least know what is expected from him. The ability to practise comes from Allah.
One argument that is commonly heard is that the Qur'an is silent on the issue of the beard. To answer this we ask, "Where in the Qur'an does it say that we are only supposed to act on what is in the Qur'an, and reject the teachings of Rasulullah sallallaahu alaiyhi wasssallam? There are many commandments that are necessary for us to fulfill, but are not mentioned in the Qur'an.
Take for example the number of Raka'ats in each Salaat. They have been explained to us by Rasulullah sallallaahu alaiyhi wasssallam , yet there is no objection on the authenticity and importance of the matter.
To accept only some of Rasulullah's sallallaahu alaiyhi wasssallam instructions and reject others on the basis that they are not found in the Qur'an amounts to mocking his flawless teachings. Some people forsake keeping a beard, claiming that the reformation of the heart and purification of the soul is their first priority. They argue that it doesn't matter if one doesn't keep a beard, so long as the heart is clean.
This type of reasoning is a symptom of one's misunderstanding or ignorance of the basic Islamic fundamentals and concepts. The heart that is actually pure will lead its beholder to complete obedience of Allah and his Prophet sallallaahu alaiyhi wasssallam.
It defies logic to think that one can have a heart free of all corruptive elements and at the same time sin persistently, not wanting to adopt the noble appearance of the Holy Prophet sallallaahu alaiyhi wasssallam. Everyone will agree that a 'pure' heart will definitely contain the love of Allah.
Allah says that if you love me, you must follow the Prophet sallallaahu alaiyhi wasssallam. If you do so, your love for Allah will prove true, and only then will Allah love you in return. Therefore, it should be correct to say that love for Allah and the disobedience of his Prophet sallallaahu alaiyhi wasssallam are two opposite things, and can never be in a person's heart at the same time.
First of all, since intentionally omitting an obligatory commandment is a major sin, and growing a beard is obligatory as you will see ahead , it is wrong to say that shaving is a minor sin. It should be known that repetitively and persistently committing minor sins is itself a major sin.
That means that for each minute that this act continues, the sin will keep accumulating and will become more weightier than major acts of disobedience, as these latter sins do not progressively increase after the act is over. Some say that Rasulullah sallallaahu alaiyhi wasssallam kept a beard merely because it was an Arabic custom in those days. Since shaving is now regarded as the norm and the fashionable thing to do, if the Prophet sallallaahu alaiyhi wasssallam was present with us, he would do the same.
May Allah forgive the Muslims who utter such foolish words, and may he give them the opportunity to repent before they die. The Arabs, amongst other things, used to bury their daughters alive, answer the call of nature in public, braid their beards, perform tawaf naked around Ka'bah and indulge in gambling and drinking wine. The Prophet sallallaahu alaiyhi wasssallam shunned these acts and strictly prohibited his followers from them.
However, amongst his teachings is that keeping a beard is an act of Islam, a sign of Muslims, and he ordered the believers to grow their beards in opposition to the non-believers who were accustomed to cutting their beards. There is yet another group of people who, despite knowing the unlawfulness of shaving their beard, claim that if they were to keep beards they would lose esteem in the eyes of the people and no longer be looked at in the same way.
Before we respond, we should explain to these idealists what the true meaning of respect, dignity and honor is. We will mention that if someone only likes a person when they make their appearance in a certain way and despises them otherwise, that's not really liking the person. It's just getting them to look a certain way that appeals to them The same goes for respect. Respect is not gained on the material attributes an individual possesses, but is due to the abstract qualities within.
Secondly, Allah Ta'ala has clearly stated that the non-Muslims will never be satisfied with us until we get caught up in trying to please them - that we lose our own senses, moral values, and eventually become one of them. If that is what we yearn, then we are opening ourselves up to the wrath and displeasure of Allah. Thirdly, if we are looking to earn respect in the eyes of non- Muslims, or expecting to get respect because of them, we are in great deception. How is it possible to get respect from something or someone that Allah has made devoid of?
If we were to seek respect through a median other than that which Allah has bestowed us with respect, he would surely hurl us into the pits of disgrace. To justify the permissibility of shaving the beard by saying that it is 'merely' a Sunnah and shrug it off with unimportance is not correct. It should be clear that when we say "the beard is a Sunnah", it revolves around the fact that it was one of the many noble practices of Rasulullah sallallaahu alaiyhi wasssallam.
The Prophet sallallaahu alaiyhi wasssallam didn't just keep a beard, he also ordered the Muslims to grow them, and showed his anger and displeasure to those who shaved in his time. All the Sahaba R. All these elements serve to prove that it is obligatory Wajib for a Muslim to keep a beard. This fact alone is enough for someone to accept that the growing of a beard is a commandment and must be fulfilled.
However, for the benefit of our fellow Muslims and as a reference, we will list some facts. The fire- worshipers grow their mustaches long and cut their beards. Do the opposite: trim your mustaches and let your beards grow long. For those individuals who think there may be the proverbial difference of opinion among the scholars' on this matter, the following facts are noted.
The Maliki School of thought, as expressed in Kitabul Ibadah and Al-Lihya-fil Islam, says that to shave the beard is Haraam and to trim it in such a way that it changes ones natural and facial features is also Haraam. Sheikh-ul Islam Ibn Taimiyyah has also given the verdict of shaving the beard being Haraam, and has further listed all the Ahadith in which we have been commanded to oppose the actions of non-Muslims. He then comments that Shari'ah orders us to oppose them and if we adopt their appearances it will create the kind of love and friendship for them which is prohibited and which we should be trying to avoid.
Allama Qurtubi states that shaving the beard, pulling the hair out and shortening it are all not permissible. Imam Ibn Hazam Zaniri has quoted a consensus of the Ulama that to cut the mustache and lengthen the beard is Fardh. This is sufficient in proving a consensus of all the scholars of Deen, from the time of the Sahaba R. Now that we know it is Wajib, we should study the details of the length of the beard as determined by the Shari'ah.
Some individuals accept the concept of the beard, but form their own conclusions regarding the length, based on their own research. This is not an appropriate way to look at Shari'ah. Just as it is necessary to consult Ulama in matters pertaining to worship, marital affairs and beliefs, it is also imperative to refer to them for guidance in matters of Sunnah practices. Otherwise we will not be able to practise the Deen as a whole. We will end up taking what seems appropriate to us and discarding whatever we dislike.
This will result in a direct breach of Allah's orders. There is a common misconception that the requirement for an Islamic beard is that it must be visible from forty feet. If the beard fits this description it is in perfect order and there is no set length for the beard in Shari'ah. This view is no more than a combination of speculation and presumption based on opinion and has nothing to do with Islamic principles or any reliable source of information.
The Shari'ah has determined that the beard is one fist. How one fist? First of all, let us look at the words. The Prophet sallallaahu alaiyhi wasssallam used to tell the Ummah to grow their beards. Imam Nawawi states the Prophet sallallaahu alaiyhi wasssallam used four terms, at various occasions for this purpose. All of them mean "to fully elongate, lengthen". Once a disciple of Khabab R. He replied "By observing the movement of the blessed beard not chin of Rasulullah sallallaahu alaiyhi wasssallam we could tell that he was reciting.
Whenever the Prophet sallallaahu alaiyhi wasssallam ordered us to do something, his own actions defined the method of that act. This is the case in all matters of Deen, and the beard is no exception. For more details we look at how the Sahaba r.
Imam Bukhari R. Ibn Umar R. The same is narrated about Hazrat Umar r. This narration is also quoted in Imam Mohammed's Kitabul Athaar. No doubt remains that the Sahaba r. The beard of the Prophet sallallaahu alaiyhi wasssallam himself was so thick and wide that it covered his upper chest in length and width. Based on the evidence and facts from Hadith we can determine the real definition of the beard in Shari'ah. The scholars of Deen have unanimously come to the same conclusions mentioned previously.
The decision most accepted by the Shafi'ee scholars is to leave the beard as it is when it exceeds one fist's length. This is the ruling of the Hanafis as well. With the addition that if it is longer than one fist, it is desirable that it be cut back to the fist length. The Maliki scholars also say that if the beard grows exceptionally long, it should be trimmed down to one fist.
Although a great deal can be written on this subject, it is the writer's humble opinion that the information provided is sufficient for anyone desiring some general knowledge on the topic and willing to practise upon it. Even though cutting the beard is a practice of non-Muslims, you may be surprised to know that there are some distinguished individuals amongst them who disagree with the concept.
Below are the excerpts of a thesis written by an American, Dr. Charles Homer. I do not understand why people dread and tremble at the thought of having a beard. People grow hair on their heads, so why do they regard it as incorrect, defective and unacceptable to have hair on their face? When the hair fails to grow on the head, then baldness is regarded as a defect, and a cause of shame. Every effort is made to hide it. Yet, it is surprising that a man will daily remove hair from his face, depriving himself from that which is a most evident sign of manhood, without a bit of shame.
His survival and safety too are tied to this brave appearance. These are the only hairs that differentiate the males from the females. The hair in all the other parts of the body are common between the male and female. Women, deep in their consciences, are more appreciative of men with beards and mustaches. Profoundly, they prefer a male with a beard to the ones without this manly facial feature.
The only reason for this is that they have bound themselves to follow unrealistic friends and the latest fashion in dress and, unfortunately, these days the beard and mustache are out of fashion. A little bit of hair before the nostrils and the mouth acts as a filter against harmful dust and germs entering the nose and the mouth.
A lengthy and thick beard protects the throat from colds. A person with a beard always upholds the honor of the beard that is demanded from him. It gives him that prestige and position that is befitting only for males. God had created the beard and the mustache for the male adult to adorn his face with them. Whoever laughs and mocks at those with beards is in fact laughing and mocking Jesus, because Jesus had a heard.
Dr Homer's statement speaks for itself and needs no explanation, but his concluding words are a real eye-opener for us Muslims. After nineteen centuries have passed he still honours his Prophet Hazrat Isa AS so much that he classifies that person who laughs at the beard as having directly insulted Hazrat Isa AS , because it was his noble practice to keep a beard.
For the Muslims who claim to have true love for Rasulullah sallallaahu alaiyhi wasssallam but fall short of following in his footsteps, it is time to face up to the reality and to accept their responsibilities. We ask Allah to forgive us all our shortcomings in obeying Him and His Prophet sallallaahu alaiyhi wasssallam and to ask Him to grant us the ability to truly repent for our mistakes and live a life that pleases Him.
This photograph was made by my very good friend David Griffith a few months after we had visited him in April of that year. Specifically, this was taken at the pickled quail egg eating contest at a chili cook off festival in San Marcos Texas in David was gracious enough to let me post this. I've always liked this shot, mainly for it's suggestion of a kind of righteous camaraderie that can exist among photographers in the act of photography.
Back in those days he David and I and some others in our circle would often go to events, or just areas, together and photograph. And whether or not we got "something good" we almost always had big fun in the process. The experience had a sort of team sport aspect to it. These days I rarely shoot with another photographer.
I don't know if it has to do with my age, or the times, but I sometimes miss that feeling of going into battle together that existed back then.

Hid them in gloomy caves, and o'er them set The mass of lofty mountains ; and a king Gave them, who, by a compact sure, might know When to restrain and when to loose the reins. The father of the gods and king of men Grants to assuage and lift with winds the waves..
A race now sails upon the Tyrrhene Sea ss Hostile to me, — Ilium to Italy Transporting, and their conquered household gods. Book I. Twice seven nymphs are mine ; The fairest, Deiopea, will I give 91 To thee in wedlock firm, to be thine own.
And, for such service, pass her years with thee. And make thee father of a lovely race. Thou givest me whatever sovereignty I hold, — my sceptre, and the favor of Jove, And to recline at banquets of the gods. And all the power I hold o'er clouds and storms.
Then forth the winds, like some great marching host. Vent being given, rush turbulent, and blow In whirling storm abroad upon the lands : Down pressing on the sea from lowest depths Upturned, Eurus and Notus all in one Blowing, and Africus with raiay squalls.
Dense on the vast waves rolling to the shore. Then follow clamoring shouts of men, and noise no Of whistling cordage. On a sudden, clouds Snatch from the Trojans all the light of day And the great sky. Black night lies on the sea. The thunder rolls, the incessant lightnings flash; And to the crews all bodes a present death. Pouring my warm life out beneath thy hand? So many corpses of brave heroes slain! On hidden rocks three ships the south-wind hurls, — Rocks by the Italian sailors Altars called ; A vast ridge on a level with the sea.
Three others by the east-wind from the deep ho Are driven upon the quicksands and the shoals, — Dreadful to see, — upon the shallows dashed. And girt around by drifting heaps of sand. One, that conveyed the Lycians, and that bore Faithful Orontes, there, before his eyes, us A huge sea from above strikes on the stern.
Dashing the pilot headlong on the waves. Three times the surges whirl the ship around. Now the strong ship of Ilioneus, now Of brave Achates, and the barks that bore Abas, and old Aletes, are o'erwhelmed. And all their yawning sides with loosened joints 'ss Drink in the bitter drench.
Meanwhile, below, Neptune was conscious of the sea disturbed With loud uproar, and of the tempest sent. And the calm deeps convulsed. Profoundly moved. He gazes up, and lifts his placid head i6o Above the waves ; Eneas' scattered fleet O'er all the ocean sees; the Trojan hosts Oppressed with waves and the down-rushing sky. And not to Juno's brother were unknown Her arts and anger. Then to him he calls Eurus and Zephyrus, and' thus he speaks : — " Can such reliance on your birth be yours, O Winds, that now, without authority Of mine, ye dare to mingle heaven and earth In discord, and such mountain waves upraise?
Not thus shall ye escape your next offence. But given to me, by fate. The savage rocks He holds, O Eurus, your abiding-place. Let tEoIus boast his power within those halls. And reign in the pent prison of the winds! With him Cymothoe and Triton bend With all their force, and from the jagged rocks Push off the ships : with trident he himself Upheaves them, and lays open the vast shoals, iSs And smooths the deep, as with light wheels he glides Along the surface of the waves.
As when Sedition rises in a multitude. And the base mob is raging with fierce minds. And flying, to his swift car gives the reins. Within a deep recess there is a place Where with its jutting sides an island forms A port, by which the rolling ocean waves Are broken, and divide in lesser curves. Above, a wall, with trembling foliage stands, O'ershadowed by a dark and gloomy grove; And underneath the opposing front, a cave no Amid the hanging cliffs is seen.
Within Are pleasant springs, and seats of natural rock, A dwelling for the nymphs. No cable here. Nor any anchor holds with crooked fluke The weary ships. And here, with a great longing for the land. The Trojans disembark, and gain the beach Desired ; and drenched and dripping with the brine.
They stretch their weary limbs upon the shore. Achates struck a spark. And caught the fire in leaves ; and round about Dry fuel piled, and swiftly fanned the flame. They bring forth then their corn, by water spoiled, Book I. Meanwhile iEneas climbs upon a cliiF, And far out on the ocean strains his eyes.
No sail in sight. Three stags Upon the shore, straying about, he sees ; And following these the whole herd comes behind, 23s And browses all along the valleys. Here He stopped and seized his bow and arrows swift. Which arms the trusty Achates bore. Nor does the victor stop till he has felled Seven huge beasts, the number of his ships ; Then to the port returning, parts the prey hs Among his comrades.
And the wines with which The good Acestes had filled full their casks. On the Trinacrian shore, when leaving him. These he divides among them ; and with words Of comfort thus consoles their sorrowing hearts : — as" " O friends, who greater sufferings still have borne, For not unknown to us are former griefs, An end also to these the deity Will give. You have approached the furious rage Of Scylla, and her hoarse resounding cliffs. Recall your courage ; banish gloomy fears.
Some day perhaps the memory of these things Shall yield delight. Through various accidents. Through many a strait of fortune, we are bound For Latium, where our fates point out to us A quiet resting-place. There 't is decreed Troy's kingdom shall arise again. Be firm. And keep vour hearts in hope of brighter days. And pressed his heavy trouble down. But they Busy themselves about their captured game.
And preparations for approaching feasts. And fix the quivering limbs upon the spits. Others set brazen caldrons on the sand. And tend the fires beneath ; then they refresh Their strength with food, and, stretched upon the grass, ays With the old wine and juicy meat are filled.
Hunger appeased, and dishes then removed. In long discourse about their comrades lost They make conjectures, between hope and fear. Uncertain if they still may be alive, iSo Or have suffered death, nor hear when they are called. And now of Amycus, and Gyas strong, And strong Cloanthus. Now there was an end At length ; when Jove from his ethereal heights Upon the sail-winged ocean looking down, And the wide lands, and shores, and nations spread Beneath, stood on the pinnacle of heaven.
And on the realm of Lybia fixed his eyes. Her brilliant eyes suffused with tears : " O thou Who rulest over men and gods with sway Eternal, — terrible with lightnings! And its sad ruin, weighing adverse fates With fates. But now the same mischance pursues These men long driven by calamities.
Yet he here Founded the walls of Padua, and built The Trojan seats, and to the people gave 3" A name, and there affixed the arms of Troy. Now, laid at rest, he sleeps in placid peace. But we, thy offspring, to whom thou dost give The promise of the palaces of heaven, — Our ships are lost, — ah bitter woe!
And driven far from the Italian shores. Is this the reward of filial piety? And dost thou thus restore our sceptred sway? Smiling, his daughter fondly kissed, and spake : — " Spare thy fears, Cytherea, for unmoved Thy people's fates remain for thee ; and thou Shalt see Lavinium and its promised walls, And to the stars of heaven shalt bear sublime The noble-souled Tineas ; nor do I turn From my intent.
And shall subdue the fierce and hostile tribes. And give them laws, and manners, and walled towns.

Free from all thy cares,. The dreadful gates of war Will then be shut with iron bolts and bars. The wicked Furor on his cruel arms. Bound with a hundred brazen knots behind, Will sit within, and rage with bloody mouth. Through the vast air with rowing wings he flies. And quickly alighted on the Lybian coasts. Beneath a hollovi: rock m With overhanging woods he hid his fleet.
Shut in around by trees and gloomy shades. Then forth he goes, accompanied alone By Achates ; in his hand two broad-tipped spears. To him then, in the middle of a wood. Appeared his mother, with a virgin. Bare to the knee she stood. Her flowing robe was gathered in a knot. Thy voice, are not a mortal's ; surely then A goddess, — Phoebus' sister, or a nymph.
O, be propitious! On what shores, we are cast; for ignorant Alike of men and places here we stray, 20 The u! Driven hither by the winds and by the waves ; And on thy altars many victims slain 43s We '11 ofFer thee!

Long is the story of her wrongs, and long 44s Its windings ; but the chief events I '11 tell. Sychasus was her spouse, of all Phoenicians The wealthiest in lands, and greatly loved By her, unhappy. But Pygmalion, Her brother, ruled in Tyre ; a monster he Of crime. A feud arose between the two. Regardless of his sister's wedded love.

An unknown heap of silver and of gold. Thus moved. Dido prepared for flight, and chose Companions. They seized upon some ships, ready by chance. And loaded them with treasure; and the wealth Of covetous Pygmalion was conveyed Away across the sea. A woman led 47s The enterprise. From what shores do ye come? And whither are ye going?

Why not join hand With hand, and real language hear and speak? But Venus with a mist Obscured them, walking, and around their forms Wove a thick veil, lest any should perceive Or harm them, or delay, or seek to know Why they had come.
But she herself on high Her way to Paphos took, and saw again With joy her seats, and saw her temples, where A hundred altars stand, and glow with sweet Sabaean incense, and with fresh-culled flowers. Following their pathway then they hastened on And now a hill ascended, which o'erlooked The city and its towers. Some choose a spot For building, and a furrow trace around. And forms of law and magistrates they make. And choose a reverend senate. Others here Are scooping docks ; and others still lay down The large foundations of a theatre.
And cut huge columns from the quarried rocks. The lofty ornaments for future scenes. As in the early summer when the bees Toil in the sunshine through the flowery fields,. Distending them with nectar sweet ; or take The loads of those that come ; or forming lines. Expel the lazy drones ; the work grows warm, 56s And all the honey smells of fragrant thyme.
First to this place, by waves and tempest tossed. The Carthaginians from the earth dug up 57s An omen royal Juno had foretold That they shoiild find, a noble horse's head ; Thus intimating that this race would shine. Famous in war, and furnished with supplies. For ages. Here the great Sidonian queen A temple built to Juno, rich in gifts. And in the presence of the goddess blessed. A brazen threshold rose above the steps. With brazen posts connecting, and the hinge Creaked upon brazen doors.
For while he waits The coming of the queen, and looks around At every object in the spacious temple. And on the city's fortune wondering. And skill and labor of the artisans. The Atridffi there he sees. And Priam, and Achilles, foe to both. Achates, and what land on earth Is not replete with stories of our woes? And mortal sufferings move their thoughts and tears. Banish all fear!
This fame some safety brings. The Phrygians there, and crested Achilles urged His chariot on. Here Troilus he sees, the unhappy youth Flying, his shield lost, in unequal fight Met by Achilles ; now by his horses whirled. Meanwhile the Trojan women to the shrine Of unpropitious Pallas go, with hair Unbound, wearing the peplus, suppliant all And sad, and beat their breasts.
Three times Achilles round the walls of Troy Had dragged the lifeless Hector, and his corpse Was bartering for gold. Also himself he saw, mixed with the chiefs Of Greece, and the Eastern forces, and the arms Of swarthy Memnon. Penthesilea next, Raging, led on the Amazonian bands. With crescent bucklers, eager in the fight ; A golden girdle 'neath her naked breast ; — A maiden warrior, daring to contend With men!
While thus yEneas wondering views These things, and stands with a bewildered gaze. Dido the queen in all her loveliness Has come into the temple, a great band Of warrior youths attending on her steps. And busy with her future sovereignty. And raised upon a lofty throne, she sat.
To administer the laws and rights to all. With a great multitude surrounding them, Antheus, Sergestus, and the strong Cloanthus, And other Trojans, whom the frowning storm Had scattered on the sea, or carried off To other coasts. Astonished he stood there. As did Achates, struck with joy and fear. But the uncertain issue troubled them. And with just rule to curb the haughty tribes, We, miserable Trojans, tossed about By storms upon the seas, appeal to thee.
Defend our galleys from the dreadful flames ; Spare a devout and unoffending race. And take a nearer view of our affairs. No such hostile mind is ours ; Nor can we, vanquished, entertain such pride. There is a place, by Greeks Hesperia called ; An ancient land it is, potent in arms. Now, their descendants, it is said. Call it Italia, from their leader's name.
And overpowered by the drenching brine. Across the sea, and over pathless rocks ; Hither we few have floated to your shores. Permitting such a custom, — to refuse Its sea-coast's barren hospitalities. And stir up war on us, forbid to set Our feet upon the first shore that we see! In the Sicilian lands there are fields for us, And cities ; and renowned Acestes there Derives his lineage from the Trojan blood.
Suffer us but to draw on shore our fleet Shattered by winds, and from the woods to choose 7m New timbers and new oars, if so we may. Holding our course to Italy, our friends And king restored, joyfully yet attain That land and Latium. But if our chief hope Is gone, — if thee, best father of our race, 7»s The Lybian sea ingulfs, nor hope remains Of young lulus, — we may seek at least The straits of Sicily, the seats prepared In King Acestes' realm, from which we came.
Then briefly Dido spoke, with downcast eyes : — " Trojans, dismiss your fears, banish your cares. Experience hard, and my new kingdom's needs Force me to use such measures, and to guard 73s My boundaries far and wide. But who knows not Eneas' race, and Troy, — her valorous deeds.
Her men, and devastations of her war? With help from my resources. Or if here 74s On equal terms with us ye would remain. The city which I build is yours. Draw up Your ships. Trojans and Tyrians from me Shall no distinction know. I to the coasts Will send sure messengers, and give commands To search the farthest parts of Lybia, If, wrecked, he wanders in some wood or town. But first Achates urged iEneas thus : " O thou of birth divine.
What wish is this that rises in thy mind? We saw the sea ingulf; but all the rest Accords with what thy mother's words foretold," Scarce had he spoken, when the veiling cloud Suddenly broke, dissolving into air. With countenance and shoulders like a god. For she herself, his mother, on her son Had breathed a glory in his locks, and light Of radiant youth, and splendor in his eyes.
Or gives the silver or the Parian stone Setting of yellow gold. Then to the queen. O thou who alone hast pitied our woes, — The unutterable sufferings of our Troy! Who to us, a remnant from the Greeks, long tossed On sea and land, by much disaster worn, And wanting everything, dost give a share Of city and home ; — it is not in our power, O Dido!
To give thee worthy thanks. If anywhere What times so blest As those that bear thee? While the rivers to the sea Shall run, — while mountain shadows move around Their sides, — and while the heavens shall feed the stars. So long thy honor, and thy name and praise Shall last, whatever lands may call me hence. Dumb with amazement at first sight of him And his hard lot, Sidonian Dido stood, And thus began : " O thou of birth divine. What destiny pursues thee through a course Of so much peril?
On these savage coasts What power has thrown thee? And I indeed recall that Teucer came To Sidon, from his native land expelled. He held ; and from that day were known to me The Trojan city's fortunes, and thy name. And the Pelasgian kings. Thy enemy Himself the Trojan nation loudly praised, And deemed himself descended from their line. Come then, O warriors, enter our abodes!
I also from calamities like yours Have suffered much, till here I set my feet. She leads iEneas to the royal courts ; And in the temples of the gods, commands A sacrifice. And of fat lambs a hundred, with their dams. Such were her gifts, for joyous feasts designed. And records of ancestral deeds, engraved In gold, in a long series of events Traced step by step from ancient lineage down. Gifts too, that from the wreck of Troy were snatched. He orders him to bring; a mantle stiff With figures and with gold ; also a veil With saffron-hued acanthus broidered round ; — 84s The Grecian Helen's ornaments, the rare And wondrous gifts her mother Leda gave.
And which her daughter from Mycenae brought To Troy, seeking illicit marriage rites. Also the sceptre Ilione once had borne, Eldest of Priam's daughters ; — and with these A beaded necklace, and a diadem Double with gems and gold. Hastening for these. Achates to the ships pursued his way. But Cytherea in her breast revolves ssj New arts and new designs ; that Cupid, changed In face and form, may pass for Ascanius, Inflame with gifts the ardent queen, and send The fire of love through all her glowing limbs.
For she the dubious faith and double tongues seo Of Tyrians fears. Fierce Juno vexes her; And with the night her troubled thoughts return. Then to the winged god of love she speaks : " O son, who art my strength, my mighty power ; Son, who alone the dread Typhoean bolts Of the great father dost despise ; to thee I fly, and suppliant demand thy aid.
How by fell Juno's hate, on every coast Thy brother iEneas is driven about the seas. Thou knowest, and often sorrowest for our grief. At such a turning-point in these affairs She will not pause. Therefore I meditate How I beforehand may possess this queen. And gird her round with flames, lest she should change By influence of any deity. The princely boy This is my cherished plan prepares to go To Carthage, at the summons of his sire.
With gifts from seas and from the flames of Troy Rescued. Him, having lulled in deepest sleep, 8S5 I shall conceal on high Cythera's top. Or on Idalium, my sacred seat. Lest he should know our wiles, or thwart our schemes. And when the joyous Dido takes thee up Upon her lap, amid the royal feast.
When the Lyasan wine is foaming high ; When she embraces thee with kisses soft, — Then breathe into her heart thy hidden fire. Beguiling her with poison. And smiling imitates lulus' gait. To the high Idalian groves, where breathing soft. Sweet-marjoram beds with perfume and with shade Embrace him sleeping. And now Cupid went, 90s Obeying her behest, the royal gifts Conveying to the Tyrians, and led on, Well pleased to have Achates for his guide.
When he arrived, upon a golden couch With sumptuous tapestry, the queen reclined In state within the middle of the hall. And now iEneas, now the Trojan youths Assemble, and on purple couches lie. Then water for their hands the servants bring, And bread from baskets, and around supply Towels with nap well shorn. Within are seen Fifty maid-servants, who in long array Attend the hearths, and with burnt sacrifice Enlarge the influence of the household gods ; A hundred others too, of equal age, Who serve the dishes, and who fill the cups.
And crowds of Tyrians also come, and throng The festive rooms, invited to recline Upon the embroidered couches. Much they admire The gifts iEneas brought ; lulus too, Book 41 The glowing beauty of the godlike face, And simulated speech ; the cloak, the veil With safFron-hued acanthus broidered round. Moved by the boy and by his gifts alike.
He, having hung about Eneas' neck. Locked in a fond embrace, and the deep love Of his false father satisfied, then seeks 93s The queen ; she with her eyes and all her heart Clings to him, fondles him upon her lap ; — Nor knows, unhappy one, how great the god Who presses on her breast. And unaccustomed motions of her heart. When in the feast there came a pause, the plates Removed, large bowls are set, the wines are crowned ; The rooms are filled with noise ; the spacious halls Resound with voices.
O'erlaid with gold, hang lighted lamps, and night Is vanquished by the torches' blaze. As Belus did, and his descendants all. Then silence hushed the rooms, while thus the queen : — " O Jove, — for thou, 't is said, dost give the laws 9ss Of guests and hosts alike, — be it thy will. That this may be a joyful day to all, Tyrians and Trojans, in remembrance held By our descendants. Bacchus, giver of joy. Be present ; and, propitious Juno, smile!
And, with a bantering tone, to Bitias gave. And from the full gold drenched himself with wine. Then followed other guests of lordly rank. Long-haired lopas with his golden lyre Pours out with ringing voice what Atlas taught. The Tyrians shout. Redoubling their applause ; the Trojans join. Thus did the unhappy queen prolong the night With varied converse, drinking in the while Long draughts of love : and much of Priam asked And much of Hector ; how equipped in arms Aurora's son had come ; how looked the steeds Of Diomed ; how large Achilles stood.
And all thy people's sad mishaps, and all Thy voyages ; for now the seventh year Bears thee still wandering over land and sea. LL silent sat, with looks intent ; when thus iEneas from his lofty couch began. O queen, thou dost command me to renew A grief unutterable ; how the Greeks O'erturned the power and lamentable realm s Of Troy : the afflicting scenes that I myself Beheld, and a great part of which I was.
Who of the Myrmidons or Dolopes, Or of the hard Ulysses' soldiery. Can, speaking of such things, refrain from tears? And all the sinking stars persuade to sleep. Still, if there be such earnest wish to hear Our sad disasters, and in brief to know The last expiring sufferings of Troy, is Though my soul shudders at the memory. And in its grief shrinks back, I will begin. Book This they pretend to be A votive offering for their safe return. The isle of Tenedos lies full in sight. Well known to fame, and in resources rich.
And here our foes upon the desert coast Conceal themselves, while we suppose them gone. Returning to Mycenae with the wind. Therefore all Troy her long grief throws aside ; 35 The gates stand open ; and we go to see With joy the Doric camps, the abandoned posts. And the deserted shore. The Dolopes Were here, and here the fierce Achilles camped ; Here lay their fleet ; and here were battles fought.
Some at the virgin Pallas' fatal gift Astonished stare, and the huge horse's size Admire. And place it in the citadel, — thus moved 4s By treacherous design ; or else the fates Of Troy so ordered it. So the uncertain crowd divided stood With views conflicting.
First, in front of all. Attended by a numerous throng of men, s5 Laocoon from the citadel runs down. Impetuously, and from a distance cries : " O wretched men! What madness, citizens. Is this? Believe ye then our foes are gone? Or is it thus Ulysses has been known? Book II. And overlook our houses, and descend 65 Upon our city ; or some other guile Is lurking. Trojans, do not trust this horse.
Quivering 'neath the blow It stood, and all the caverns of its womb Resounded with a roar. And if the fates Divine had favored, and a serious mind been ours, is He would have then impelled us to destroy With arms the hiding-places of the Greeks ; And Troy would now be standing, and thou saved, O lofty citadel of Priam!
Lo, Meanwhile the Trojan shepherds with loud cries so Dragged to the king a young man tightly bound With hands behind his back, who, quite unknown To them, surrendered of his own accord ; With the design to open to the Greeks The gates of Troy, and, resolute of will, 85 Either to use deceit, or encounter death. Eager to see, from every quarter rush, In a tumultuous throng, the Trojan youths.
And vie in insults on the captive. For while he stood. Troubled, defenceless, in the sight of all. And gazed around upon the Trojan bands ; " Alas," he said, " what land now, or what sea Can harbor me? Or what remains for me, 9s Unhappy wretch, for whom there is no place Among the Greeks, and upon whom besides The vengeful Trojans seek a bloody death! And every violent impulse checked at once. He, Fear at length laid aside, addressed us thus : — "To thee, O king, whatever the result May be, I will confess the truth entire ; Nor shall deny I am by birth a Greek.
This first. For if Sinon has been wretched made By fortune hard, not therefore was he made Book In conversation thou no Perchance hast heard the name and famous deeds Of Palamedes, of the line of Belus ; Whom, innocent, accused of treachery, And by false witnesses, the Greeks condemned To death, because he had opposed the war.
My father, who was poor, and near of kin. Sent me as his companion to the war To attend him, from the earliest years of youth. As long as he stood firm in princely power, And flourished in the councils of the kings, I too somewhat of name and honor bore. But afterward, — I speak of things well known, — When by the plausible Ulysses' hate. Afflicted and indignant at the fate Of him, my guiltless friend. Nor did I hold My peace, fool that I was, but vowed revenge. Hence came ruin's first plague-spot.
For from this time, with accusations new Ulysses ever sought to frighten me, 13s And spread ambiguous rumors through the crowd ; And, conscious of his guilt, sought armed defence. Nor did he rest, until by Calchas' means — But why should I recall these painful themes In vain? And to hear this is proof enough for you? Now then at once inflict your punishment.
Ulysses wishes this, and Atreus' sons Will well reward it. He tremblingly went on, with words of guile : — " Full oft the Greeks sought to contrive their flight, And, weary of long war, abandon Troy. Would that they had! Oft did the tempest rough Upon the sea prevent, and southern winds Deter them going; and especially When now this horse stood there, with wooden beams iss Constructed, — then through all the sky the clouds Book Even so through blood must your return be sought.
Propitiating heaven with Grecian life. Forth then Ulysses drags into the midst. With loud uproar, Calchas the priest, and asks What in such case the deities might will. And many persons now presaged to me This artful schemer's cruel wickedness. And quietly foresaw the event to come. The priest for ten days held his peace, and still 17s Refused, dissembling, to name any one. As doomed to death. At length reluctantly Driven by the clamors of the Ithacan, He breaks his silence, and, as was agreed.
He destines me to the altar. All assent. And what each one was fearing for himself. Turned to the ruin of one wretched man. They patiently endure. And now had come The dreadful day, the sacred rites prepared. The salted meal, the fillets round my brows : — I broke away from death ; I snapped my chains ; And in a miry swamp I lay all night Hidden, and screened from view by long marsh grass. Till they should spread if haply so they should Their sails unto the wind. But now for me , There is no hope to see my native land.
Nor my sweet children, nor my father dear. Whom they will yet, perhaps, for my escape. Demand for punishment, and this offence- Of mine will expiate by the death of those Unhappy ones. Therefore I thee entreat. By the supernal powers, and deities Conscious of truth, — by unviolated faith, — If such there be remaining still with man, — Pity these woes of mine, — pity a soul aoo Deserving not such sufferings as these.
And freely pitied him. Priam himself Book I I. Henceforth forget the Greeks whom thou hast lost ; Be one of us ; and truly tell the things That I shall ask of thee. With what design Have they constructed this gigantic horse? What do they intend? Is it religious in its aim, or is 't An engine framed for war? The man, Skilled in deceit and Grecian artifice. Raised his unfettered hands toward the stars.
In your inviolable divinity! If any they conceal! Nor am I now Bound by my country's laws. Only do thou Remain true to thy promise, and, Troy saved, Keep faith with me, if I disclose the truth. And largely pay thee back what thou hast done. They snatched away the sacred effigy. And with their bloody hands presumed to touch The virgin fillets of the goddess : — then.
E'en from that time, the Greeks began to lose Their hopes, which, slipping backward, flowed away, — Their strength all broken, and the deity Averse. Nor did Tritonia indicate These things by doubtful prodigies ; for scarce Had they deposited within their camp The image, when from her wide-open eyes Flashed gleaming flames, and through her limbs salt sweat Exuded ; and three times from off the ground — Wonderful to relate!
And brought the goddess back, now borne away By them, in their curved ships, across the sea. Arms they prepare to bring, and guardian gods ; And, the sea crossed again, will soon be here. Thus Calchas read the omens ; and so warned.
They built in place of the Palladium, And of the violated deity. This image, to atone for their foul crime. And so protect you with the ancient faith. In mighty war, and our posterity Experience these fates. Here another dire event More dreadful far befalls, disturbing us. Wretched and unprepared, with gloomy thoughts. Laocoon, chosen Neptune's priest by lot, A huge bull at the solemn altars there Was sacrificing, when behold,- two snakes — I shudder as I tell — from Tenedos Come gliding on the deep, with rings immense.
Pressing upon the sea, and side by side Toward the shore they move with necks erect. And bloody crests that tower above the waves ; Their other parts behind sweeping the sea. With huge backs winding on in sinuous folds.
A noise of foaming brine is heard. We, pale with terror, fly. But they with steady pace Laoco5n seek. And bites into their miserable limbs. Then him, as he with help and weapons comes. They seize, and bind him in their mighty spires; Twice round the middle, twice around his neck, 30s Twisting, with scaly backs, they raise on high Their heads and lofty necks.
He with his hands Strains to untwine the knots, his fillets wet With gore and poison black. His dreadful shrieks Rise to. But they. The dragons, slip away to the lofty shrine And citadel of cruel Pallas. There, Beneath the goddess' feet and orbed shield, They hide. Then verily a new fear creeps Into the trembling hearts of all.
Against the horse. And now all cry aloud To take the image to its rightful seat. Arid supplicate the goddess. We divide The walls, and open lay the battlements. All for the work prepare. The terrible machine Passes the walls, filled full with armed men. Onward it moves. And threatening glides into the city's midst. Alas, my country 1 Ilium, home of gods 1 Dardanian battlements renowned in war! Four times, e'en at the threshold of the gate, 33s It stopped : four times we heard the noise of arms Ring from the depths within.
Yet on we press. Thoughtless of omens, blind with furious zeal. And in the sacred citadel we lodge The fatal monster. And now Cassandra opes Her lips, — that by the deity's command Should never be believed by Trojan ears, — And prophesies to us our future fates. We, miserable, unto whom this day Book II. And now the Grecian hosts were moving on From Tenedos, their ships in order ranged.
Beneath the friendly silence of the moon. Toward the well-known shores, soon as appeared 35s The blazing signal from the royal ship. Defended by the adverse deities, Sinon unbars the wooden prison doors. And secretly lets loose the hidden Greeks. The horse stands open wide, and to the air Restores them. Joyful from the hollow wood They leap, — Tisandrus, Sthenelus, their chiefs. And fierce Ulysses, sliding down a rope. And with them Acamas and Thoas come.
And Peleus' offspring, Neoptolemus, 36s Machaon leading ; Menelaus too. And e'en Epeus, inventor of the fraud. They invade the city sunk in sleep and wine. The guards are slain ; their comrades they receive With opened gates, and join the expectant bands.
Then in my dreams, behold, Hector appeared. Distinctly present ; very sad he was, And weeping floods of tears. So once he looked. Dragged by the chariot wheels, and black with dust And blood, his swollen feet pierced through with thongs. Ah me, that face! How changed he was from him. But now the squalid beard he wore, and hair Matted with blood, and the wounds he took when dragged Around the city's walls.
Weeping m'yself, 38s I seemed to address him of my own accord. And to draw out these melancholy words : — " O light of Troy! Why hast thou stayed so long? And from what shores, O long-expected Hector, dost thou come.? Behold thee here? What undeserved cause Distorts thy face serene? And why these wounds? Thou goddess-born," he said, " fly from these flames! The enemy holds the walls. Troy rushes down From her high pinnacle. Enough is done For Priam and our country.
If right hand Could have defended Troy, minp 't would have been That so defended, Troy to thee commends Her sacred rites and household gods. These take, Companions of thy fates. With these go seek The mighty city thou one day shalt found At last, after thy wanderings o'er the sea. Meanwhile, with many a lamentable cry The city is confused.
And more and more. Although my sire Anchises' house stood far Away, hid and secluded 'mid the trees, The noise grew loud, and all the horrible clang Of arms increased. Starting from sleep, I gain With swift ascent the house-top's loftiest verge. And stand and listen with arrected ears.
Swollen to a rapid torrent, floods the fields. Bewildered by the rushing noise below. Then verily the false faith of the Greeks Is manifest, — their treacherous arts revealed. The broad Sigean waves reflect The fiery glow. And shouts of men are heard. And blare of trumpets. Wildly I seize my arms ; — Although for arms there seemed but little use. Comes hurrying by, and bearing in his hands The sacred vessels and the vanquished gods ; He leads his little grandson by the hand, And wildly to my threshold bends his steps.
On what citadel Do we now seize? Trojans no more are we. Gone now Is Troy, and all our glory! Cruel Jove To Argos now transfers the imperial rule. O'er all the burning town the Greeks hold sway. The towering horse stands in the city's midst, And pours out armed men.
