9780156033688: Lavinia

From a masterful writer of myth and fantasy, a beautiful reimagining of one of the most pivotal characters in Virgil's Aeneid

As the story goes, Virgil's hero fights to claim the king's daughter, Lavinia, with whom he is destined to build an empire. Lavinia herself never speaks a word. Now, Ursula K. Le Guin gives Lavinia a voice in a novel that takes us to the half-wild world of ancient Italy. Lavinia grows up knowing nothing but peace and freedom until her suitors arrive. Her mother wants her to marry handsome, ambitious Turnus. But omens and prophecies spoken by the sacred springs say she must marry a foreigner, that she will be the cause of a bitter war, and that her husband will not live long. When a fleet of Trojan ships sails up the Tiber, Lavinia decides to take her destiny into her own hands and tells us the story of her life--and her life's greatest love.

Review:

Praise for LAVINIA"[A] work of immeasurable merit, LAVINIA ranks with Robert Graves' inestimable"I, Claudius"as a perfect tale of a vastly imperfect time. Brilliant."--Baltimore Sun"The inspired novelist has turned back toward the past...and written one of the finest novels she has ever made."--Chicago Tribune"[LAVINIA] is a poem in the form of a novel, an elegant echo chamber for a canonical work, a reading of an epic poem, and a rewriting of that poem..."--Los Angeles Times""
