Live in the future for as many years (Book 3, lines 47-48) Structure of Book 4 The Bees- Selfless Dedication to the Common Good I will show you a spectacle To marvel at, a world in miniature, Gallant commanders and the institutions Of a whole nation, its character,

pursuits, Communities and warfare. Little the scale To work on, yet not little is the glory (p. 124, lines 3-7) Alone they hold their progeny in common, Alone they share the housing of their city, Passing their lives under exalted laws,

Alone they recognize a fatherland And the sanctity of a home, and provident For coming winter set to work in summer And store their products for the common good. (p. 129, lines 154-57) The Bees: Dedication to Home and to King [The king] is the guardian

Of all their works, him they admire, surround him In cheering crowds and flock to form his escort, Carry him shoulder-high, expose their bodies In battle to protect him, and there seek Through wounds a death with glory. (p. 131, lines 215-18)

They forbear to indulge In copulation or to enervate Their bodies in Venus ways (p. 130, lines 197-99) The Bees- The Relationship with the Human These ardent passions and these prodigious contests A little handful of dust will lay to rest. (p. 127, line 87)

But when you have recalled from the field of battle Both captains, single out the inferior And put him to death, for fear his wasteful presence (p. 127, line 88-89) But if the swarm is aimless, gadding about In the air, disdainful of the cells and

leaving Its quarters to get cold, you must intervene To check their giddy spirits from idle play. To check them is no great task: just take the kings And tear their wings off. (p. 127, lines 103-05) The Aristaeus Story

Epyllions Aristaeus Cyrene Proteus Orpheus Eurydice The Bugonia method Orpheus and Eurydice Orpheus, she cried, we

are ruined, you and I! What utter madness is this? See, once again The cruel Fates are calling me back and darkness Falls on my swimming eyes. Goodbye for ever. I am borne away wrapped in an endless night, Stretching to you, no longer yours, these

hands, These helpless hands. (pg. 141, lines 494-98) Conclusions Themes in Roman History Themes in Virgil Republic-Monarchy Democracy-Dictatorship
