    Being 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 a

Her daughter off to an ambitious neighbouring king and her father is plagued with indecision But when a fleet of foreign warships sails into the mouth of the river Tiber Lavinia knows her destiny is calli I 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 unmitigated love for this book Absence makes the heart grow fonder And reconnecting with Le Guin s writing made my heart singThe story itself follows Virgil s Aeneid but only the part when he lands in Italy near ish Rome and settles there fights a war and marries a Latin girl named Lavinia The story is told from Lavinia s perspective and the conceit that she is someone the Poet created and to whom he gave very little time in the Aeneid She is self aware which makes for an interesting twist in the story She s filling in the details the structure and what Aeneas does are all set The beginning and the end before and after Aeneas are perhaps the most interesting parts for me but I enjoyed the middle just as well That this book is soooo good is no surprise to me She could ve written a grocery list and I d love it but I do wonder why this didn t get many awards Just the Locus award as far as I can tell
