    Kindle Ursula K. Le Guin ☆ Lavinia PDF/EPUB ↠ ☆ lavinia mobile, Lavinia PDF/EPUBDNF at page 180I’m sad I thought I’d love this but there doesn’t seem to be anything different in here than is in The Aeneid It’s just from Lavinia’s perspective but all the events are the same and I’m bored 😑

    Kindle Ursula K. Le Guin ☆ Lavinia PDF/EPUB ↠ ☆ lavinia mobile, Lavinia PDF/EPUBI thought this book was boring There I said it Even though it had passion war bloodshed royal intrigue suicide I found it boring and it was difficult for me to convince myself to continue reading it I am a classic history buff which this novel has loads of but it still couldn't grip my interest The tone of the book was uiet and ghostly very in the past so I never felt anything immediate It was a story told by someone who remembered facts places names etc and spoke of emotion but I never felt it I think this book was well reviewed so I am sure many people would have a different experience I was just not that keen on it

    Kindle Ursula K. Le Guin ☆ Lavinia PDF/EPUB ↠ ☆ lavinia mobile, Lavinia PDF/EPUB“I am not the feminine voice you may have expected”When my father told me that Ursula LeGuin had put out a new novel I was as I usually am ecstatic LeGuin is one of my all time favorite authors and I can’t think of time when she’s written something that has somehow failed to engage entertain or intrigue me The fact that she was apparently riffing off Virgil’s Aeneid was just icing on the cake for this poor excuse for a classical studies majorWhen the book arrived I found myself looking at the cover and suddenly wondering what the heck this book was about As much as I tried I could not remember the character of Lavinia from my previous readings of the Aeneid in the slightest the best I could do was to temporarily confuse her with Dido My guilt at my poor powers of memory was a bit assuaged when after some

    Kindle Ursula K. Le Guin ☆ Lavinia PDF/EPUB ↠ ☆ lavinia mobile, Lavinia PDF/EPUBIt's interesting to contrast this with Margaret Atwood's Penelopiad Both explore one of the Big Classics The Aeneid in LeGuin's case the Odyssey in Atwood's from a female character's perspective LeGuin and Atwood are both stellar writers but I enjoyed Lavinia vastly LeGuin seems to have a real affection for her characters and that makes for a warmer humane book You can't tackle such a project without exploring the constraints placed on women in ancient times but again the authors take two very different approaches Atwood focuses on the oppression of women but LeGuin who has always shown an appreciation for the beauties of everyday life convincingly explores how women could find fulfillment and power within the roles allowed them

    Kindle Ursula K. Le Guin ☆ Lavinia PDF/EPUB ↠ ☆ lavinia mobile, Lavinia PDF/EPUBBack when I studied Latin we were given bits of Virgil's Aeneid to translate I always found it to be a chore as poetry is challenging to translate than textbook translating exercises like Roma est in Italia Still I thought I knew the piece sufficiently until hearing that Ursula Le Guin had written a book about a character from Aeneid but having no idea who Lavinia was Having now read Aeneid in its translated entirety I can't really fault myself for not remembering Lavinia She has no spoken lines no characterization and her function in the story is simply to be the prize of uarreling factions In other words hers was a story that benefited greatly from being told with care and respectPart of the brilliance in Le Guin's book lies in her ability to seamlessly weave a rich and detailed story for Lavinia in the greater fabric of Virgil's epic Le Guin makes the strange world of Bronze Age Italy a place one can feel

    Kindle Ursula K. Le Guin ☆ Lavinia PDF/EPUB ↠ ☆ lavinia mobile, Lavinia PDF/EPUB Oh never and forever aren't for mortals loveLe Guin writes wonderful women and stories that honor them Lavinia is a whole book written from the perspective of a character that never utters a word in Vergil's epic The Aeneid It tells of all the life that happens between the glorious battles the farming the herding hunting and reading of the auspices

    Kindle Ursula K. Le Guin ☆ Lavinia PDF/EPUB ↠ ☆ lavinia mobile, Lavinia PDF/EPUBI think I'm incapable of disliking a Le Guin book So 5 stars it isI'm not a huge fan of the retelling of mythological stories and the like from the stand point of a woman But this was written by Le Guin and here I am I have had this on my shelf since shortly after it was written I bought it in hardcover in Missoula where my brother lives But the real reason that I've waited so long to read it is because I only discovered UKL in my early to mid twenties Back then she was already 60 something and after I devoured uite a lot of her core oeuvre I realized that if I read all of it I may have uite a lot of my own life during which I wouldn't have a new' Le Guin to read So I've been hoarding her books for the past 15 20 years Now I only have 2 novels to read plus a couple short story collections her older poetry collections and most of her non fiction So what does this have to do with this book? Not much I suppose but it may explain my unm

    Kindle Ursula K. Le Guin ☆ Lavinia PDF/EPUB ↠ ☆ lavinia mobile, Lavinia PDF/EPUBBeing a lady classicist often reuires willful acts of cognitive dissonance It's not just that nearly all your extant source material was written by men about men for men it's also that Greek and Roman culture particularly the culture portrayed in the great epics the Iliad the Odyssey and the Aeneid is brutally testosterone fueled and flagrantly anti woman In epic the worst women are pure unadulterated evil monsters like Scylla Charybdis and the Sirens Slightly less evil are those who use their sexual wiles to distract men from their noble purposes Circe Calypso Dido And good women are those who simply shut the fuck up bear legitimate children and get out of th

    Kindle Ursula K. Le Guin ☆ Lavinia PDF/EPUB ↠ ☆ lavinia mobile, Lavinia PDF/EPUB In truth he gave me nothing but a name and I have filled it with myself Yet without him would I even have a name? I have never blamed him Even a poet cannot get everything rightIf you were looking for a uote do describe the central concern of this book the above might do itI was deeply moved by this book and the tale it weaves and the respect with which it treats its characters and subjects like love fate and the power of stories I love its intertextuality and how much it is in conversation with its source text and other works and how vividly a picture it painted of pre Roman Italy Le Guin unsurprisingly really did her research and brought it to bear masterfullyI thought this might be a 5 star read in the beginning but there was a part in the middle that made me tend towar
