    Why does each thing on the earth war against each other thing? Why does each small thing in the world have to fight against the world itself? Why does a fly have to fight the whole universe? Why does a dandelion have to fight the whole universe? For the same reason that I had to be alone in the dreadful Council of the Days. So that each thing that obeys law may have the glory and isolation of the anarchist.

    Study Of Helen ~ Gustave Moreau

     
  5. Appalled now by her fate, poor Dido prayed
    For death; she wished to see the sky no longer.
    Other things also drove her from the daylight:
    Her gifts on incense-burning altars rotted,
    Horrible to describe: wine turned to black
    And filthy gore the second that she poured it.
    No one was told. Her sister did not know it.
    There stood inside her home a marble shrine
    To her late husband: there she worshiped him,
    Spreading white fleece and hanging holy wreaths.
    She thought she heard his voice there, echoing, calling.
    When the night’s darkness covered all the earth,
    She listened to a lone owl on the rooftree
    Whose song of death kept trailing into sobs.
    Many grim warnings of the long-dead seers
    Panicked her too. In dreams a fierce Aeneas
    Chased her. She raved in fear or was abandoned,
    Friendless, forever walking a long road,
    Seeking her Tyrians in a lifeless land.
    It was like Pentheus seeing bands of Furies,
    And a pair of Thebes, and a sun split in two;
    As in a play the son of Agamemnon
    Runs from his mother’s torches and black snakes
    While vengeful demons lurk outside the door.
    Madness and grief filled her defeated heart,
    And she chose death.
    Vergil, The Aeneid (trans. Sarah Ruden)

In 1968 Italo Calvino published 14 reasons why we should read the classics, and his list still feels relevant. After all, “a classic is a book that has never finished saying what it has to say.”
