Did you translate that? I like his translation. I enjoy reading Middle English, I became fascinated with it when I was 11.marcus said:hey Evo, here's a literal translation as a check:
and now dank night overwhelms the heaven,
when the declining of the bright stars
to sleep and rest persuades our appetite;
but since thou hast such pleasure and delight
to know our chance, and fall of Troy in war,
and shortly the last end thereof would hear...
I did not know of Gavin Douglas or this 1513 translation of
the Aeneid. Glad you flagged it.
I forgot to post the link for the poem, it is just an excerpt though.
