Chapter 6 | Book VI: Hector and Andromache | Free Audiobook The Iliad, together with the Odyssey, is one of two ancient Greek epic poems traditionally attributed to Homer. The poem is commonly dated to the 8th or 7th century BC, and many scholars believe it is the oldest extant work of literature in the Greek language, making it the first work of European literature. The existence of a single author for the poems is disputed as the poems themselves show evidence of a long oral tradition and hence, multiple authors. The poem concerns events during the tenth and final year in the siege of the city of Iliun, or Troy, by the Greeks. (Summary adapted from Wikipedia by Karen Merline.)

Chapter 4 | 04 - Canto IV | Free Audiobook Camões (1524-1580) é o maior poeta da nossa língua, e Os Lusíadas a sua obra maior. Publicada em 1572, é poema épico em dez cantos, narrando os feitos dos Portugueses em suas guerras e descobertas marítimas, em uma visão maravilhosa e exaltada, grandiosa e de comovente patriotismo. Apesar das barreiras que se põem ao leitor moderno, as referências mitológicas às vezes recônditas, as menções a episódios e personagens históricos menos conhecidos, a sua modernidade é surpreendente e a pessoa do poeta se impõe admirável, concreta e única em sua genialidade. A força da linguagem, a beleza dos seus versos, desafia qualquer comentário. (Summary by zaaf)Camões (1524-1580) is considered Portugal's greatest poet, and Os Lusiadas, his masterpiece. Published in 1572, this epic poem in ten cantos sings of the deeds of the Portuguese in their warfare and overseas discoveries, in an exalted vision of wonder, grandiloquence and moving patriotism. Once the obvious obstacles to the modern reader are surmounted, such as arcane mythological references or mentions to lesser known historic passages and characters, the modernity of this work may be surprising, and the author's persona emerges in his unique, concrete and admirable geniality. The strength of his diction and the beauty of his verses simply defy words. (Summary translated by Leni)

Chapter 67 | Canto trigésimo tercero del purgatorio | Free Audiobook A la mitad del viaje de nuestra vida, me encontré en una selva oscura por haberme apartado del camino recto. ¡Ah! ¡Cuan penoso me sería decir lo salvaje, áspera y espesa que era esta selva, cuyo recuerdo renueva mi temor! Era tan triste que la muerte no lo es tanto. Pero para hablar del bien que alli encontré, revelaré las demás cosas que he visto... (del Canto primero del infierno). Manuel Aranda y Sanjuan (1845-1900) ha sido un prolífico traductor de obras técnicas, pero también literarias. Entre estas últimas se cuentan Orlando furioso, de Lodovico Ariosto, y La comedia humana, de Honoré de Balzac. Su traducción en prosa de la Divina Comedia de Dante ha sido durante decenios "la traducción" por antonomasia en lengua española. ( Tux)

Chapter 7 | Erato - Dorothea | Free Audiobook There are few modern poems of any country so perfect in their kind as the "Hermann and Dorothea" of Goethe. In clearness of characterization, in unity of tone, in the adjustment of background and foreground, in the conduct of the narrative, it conforms admirably to the strict canons of art; yet it preserves a freshness and spontaneity in its emotional appeal that are rare in works of so classical a perfection in form.The basis of the poem is a historical incident. In the year 1731 the Archbishop of Salzburg drove out of his diocese a thousand Protestants, who took refuge in South Germany, and among whom was a girl who became the bride of the son of a rich burgher. The occasion of the girl's exile was changed by Goethe to more recent times, and in the poem she is represented as a German from the west bank of the Rhine fleeing from the turmoil caused by the French Revolution. The political element is not a mere background, but is woven into the plot with consummate skill, being used, at one point, for example, in the characterization of Dorothea, who before the time of her appearance in the poem has been deprived of her first betrothed by the guillotine; and, at another, in furnishing a telling contrast between the revolutionary uproar in France and the settled peace of the German village.The characters of the father and the minister Goethe took over from the original incident, the mother he invented, and the apothecary he made to stand for a group of friends. But all of these persons, as well as the two lovers, are recreated, and this so skillfully that while they are made notably familiar to us as individuals, they are no less significant as permanent types of human nature. The hexameter measure which he employed, and which is retained in the present translation, he handled with such charm that it has since seemed the natural verse for the domestic idyl—witness the obvious imitation of this, as of other features of the poem, in Longfellow's "Evangeline."Taken as a whole, with its beauty of form, its sentiment, tender yet restrained, and the compelling pathos of its story, "Hermann and Dorothea" appeals to a wider public than perhaps any other product of its author. - Summary by Introduction of the book

Homer's Odyssey is one of the work that I started a few years ago on my website, Projet Homere (Homer Project (For the Greek language as a whole)) - http://www.projethomere.com

The Odyssey is one of Homer's two major works and at the same time European literature, so I am convinced that it is important that ancient Greek literary works be recorded by Greek voices.

Chapter 17 | Livre 11. Première partie | Free Audiobook Comme Virgile a développé l’épopée à célébrer l’origine de sa propre patrie, Milton l’a adaptée encore plus pour raconter l’origine du mal et le remède à la chute de l’homme; c’est ce sujet qu’il appelle “des choses qui n’ont encore été tentées ni en prose ni en vers.” L’auteur continue à combiner l’innovation et la tradition quand il débute le premier livre “in medias res” avec la visite au monde infernal (cf. Odyssée livre 11, l’Enéide livre 6), car la malice de Satan est le principe déterminant de l’action négative. Mais au centre du poème se trouve le triomphe du Fils de Dieu sur les anges rebelles, ce qui neutralise le projet nocif de Satan. Ce dessein de la conquête du mal par le bien se présage dans les deux conseils d’état: En enfer Satan s’engage à trouver et ruiner la nouvelle création lorsqu’au ciel le Fils s’offre comme sacrifice pour sauver l’homme avant que Satan ne l’ait corrompu.
Après ces préliminaires, nous voyons Eden et “nos premiers parents.” Satan, découvert en train de les épier, est expulsé du jardin. Puis Dieu charge un ange d’expliquer à Adam et Ève l’histoire de la guerre au ciel, où a commencé le danger imminent. À la demande d’Adam, l’ange raconte la création du monde visible et surtout le développement naturel: Toute croissance se déroule de l’assimilation de la nourriture; le mangeur épure la pâture, non pas vice versa.
Cependant, Satan, qui rentre dans le paradis sous forme de serpent, apprend à Ève à escroquer l’évolution: Il a trouvé un fruit magique qui peut la douer d’une puissance prodigieuse. Il prétend que ce fruit lui ait conféré et la raison et l’usage de la parole. Ève, qui imagine qu’Adam vient de sous-estimer sa fortitude morale, se permet d’oublier sa leçon récente et elle succombe à cette tentation. Puis, Adam, incapable d’imaginer la vie sans Ève (et sans avoir examiné des alternatives au péché), reçoit le fruit de sa femme et le goûte, lui aussi.
Néanmoins, le triomphe de Satan est éphémère, car malgré une nouvelle grand-route qui relie l’enfer au monde de l’homme, lui et ses disciples souffrent l’humiliation d’une annuelle métamorphose involontaire en serpents.
Quels que soient leurs motifs, Adam et Ève, tous les deux, ont désobéi au seul commandement de leur Créateur, et tous les deux sont condamnés à la mortalité et à l’expulsion du jardin. Cependant, avant qu’ils ne partent, Dieu leur accorde encore une leçon d’histoire, cette fois de l’avenir: le progrès du péché, l’avènement du Sauveur, et la croissance de l’église.
La prose de Chateaubriand accorde avec la syntaxe de l’original assez bien, mais l’aspiration du traducteur à la clarté l’amene à l’occasion d’anéantir certains effets subtils de l’auteur.(Thomas Copeland)

Chapter 3 | Book 3 | Free Audiobook Paradise Regained is a poem by the 17th century English poet John Milton, published in 1671. It is connected by name to his earlier and more famous epic poem Paradise Lost, with which it shares similar theological themes. Based on the Gospel of Luke's version of the Temptation of Christ, Paradise Regained is more thoughtful in writing style, and thrives upon the imagery of Jesus' perfection in contrast to the shame of Satan. (Summary from Wikipedia)

Ève, qui imagine qu’Adam vient de sous-estimer sa fortitude morale, se permet d’oublier sa leçon récente et elle succombe à cette tentation. Puis, Adam, incapable d’imaginer la vie sans Ève (et sans avoir examiné des alternatives au péché), reçoit le fruit de sa femme et le goûte, lui aussi.
Néanmoins, le triomphe de Satan est éphémère, car malgré une nouvelle grand-route qui relie l’enfer au monde de l’homme, lui et ses disciples souffrent l’humiliation d’une annuelle métamorphose involontaire en serpents.
Quels que soient leurs motifs, Adam et Ève, tous les deux, ont désobéi au seul commandement de leur Créateur, et tous les deux sont condamnés à la mortalité et à l’expulsion du jardin. Cependant, avant qu’ils ne partent, Dieu leur accorde encore une leçon d’histoire, cette fois de l’avenir: le progrès du péché, l’avènement du Sauveur, et la croissance de l’église.
La prose de Chateaubriand accorde avec la syntaxe de l’original assez bien, mais l’aspiration du traducteur à la clarté l’amene à l’occasion d’anéantir certains effets subtils de l’auteur.(Thomas Copeland)

Chapter 68 | Faerie Queene VI.viii | Free Audiobook Spenser planned a 24-book romance-epic consisting of two parts, of which he completed half of the first. The first twelve books were to illustrate the development of virtues within the individual soul, and the second twelve were to depict the application of these moral virtues to remedying evils that afflict the world. Each of the first set of quests was to begin at the court of the Fairy Queen, Gloriana, and the knights were to return thither after having defeated some foe representing a personal weakness. Having thus proved themselves, they were qualified to undertake the second quests, in the world. The neat plan becomes somewhat muddled by Book 3, which nevertheless contains the philosophical core of the poem's allegorical structure: the Platonic notion that love (grace) unifies the cosmos and draws the will, through the pursuit of beauty, into virtuous action, returning to God at last in worship. The plot structure of the poem is rich and complex, with many strands interlinked and overlapping, each replete with allegorical significance. (Summary by Thomas Copeland)

Chapter 18 | Book XVIII: The shield of Achilles | Free Audiobook The Iliad, together with the Odyssey, is one of two ancient Greek epic poems traditionally attributed to Homer. The poem is commonly dated to the 8th or 7th century BC, and many scholars believe it is the oldest extant work of literature in the Greek language, making it the first work of European literature. The existence of a single author for the poems is disputed as the poems themselves show evidence of a long oral tradition and hence, multiple authors. The poem concerns events during the tenth and final year in the siege of the city of Iliun, or Troy, by the Greeks. (Summary adapted from Wikipedia by Karen Merline.)

Chapter 1 | 01 - Canto XIII | Free Audiobook These are the last four Cantos of his mock epic that Byron completed in the year before his death at the age of 36 in Messolonghi, Greece, where he had gone to fight for the nationalists against the Ottoman Empire. Juan, now in England, is invited to spend the autumn with a hunting party at the ancient country seat of Lord Henry and Lady Adeline Amundeville. There, he meets the most intriguing of the Byronic heroines, Aurora Raby, and is visited by a ghost with ample breasts (!). That is the narrative outline but hardly the focus of the last Cantos. Byron is more interested satirizing the frailty of faith, the fecklessness of the English aristocracy, the futility of English pastimes and the fawning of elected Members of Parliament over their middle-class constituents. Booze, banquets, belles and bishops are given the Byronic treatment, while his spleen is reserved for his critics and for "tyranny". (Summary by Peter Gallagher)

Following a string of defeats at the hands of the invading Danes, a vision from heaven in the river island of Athelney fills Alfred with joy and hope. Though it gives no promise of victory in the coming struggle, it inspires him to rally his chieftains for a last stand against the invading hordes. His adventures lead throughout the country as he gathers his men, and take him through the Danish camps disguised as a minstrel before culminating in the Battle of Ethandune and the prophesying of the enemy's subtle return in the ages to come.

Chapter 5 | Bk 03: Sea Wanderings and Strange Meetings, pt 1 | Free Audiobook The Aeneid is a Latin epic written by Virgil in the 1st century BC that tells the legendary story of Aeneas, a Trojan who traveled to Italy, where he became the ancestor of the Romans. The first six of the poem’s twelve books tell the story of Aeneas’ wanderings from Troy to Italy, and the poem’s second half treats the Trojans’ ultimately victorious war upon the Latins, under whose name Aeneas and his Trojan followers are destined to be subsumed. The poem was commissioned from Vergil by the Emperor Augustus to glorify Rome. Several critics think that the hero Aeneas’ abandonment of the Cartheginian Queen Dido, is meant as a statement of how Augustus’ enemy, Mark Anthony, should have behaved with the Egyptian Queen Cleopatra.

Chapter 2 | Book 1, 560-960 | Free Audiobook The Achilleid is the third and unfinished work by the Roman poet Publius Papinius Statius. In its introduction, it promises to present the life of the hero Achilles from his youth as a pupil under the centaur Chiron to his death at Troy. The author died however before writing most of the poem, leaving only one and a half books completed. The part that remains though holds interest for being unusual, bringing an account of the hero's early life and an episode in which his mother, Thetis, disguised him as a girl on the island of Scyros before he joined the Greek expedition against Troy.

Chapter 4 | Book IV: A quarrel in Olympus | Free Audiobook The Iliad, together with the Odyssey, is one of two ancient Greek epic poems traditionally attributed to Homer. The poem is commonly dated to the 8th or 7th century BC, and many scholars believe it is the oldest extant work of literature in the Greek language, making it the first work of European literature. The existence of a single author for the poems is disputed as the poems themselves show evidence of a long oral tradition and hence, multiple authors. The poem concerns events during the tenth and final year in the siege of the city of Iliun, or Troy, by the Greeks. (Summary adapted from Wikipedia by Karen Merline.)

Chapter 10 | 10 - Canto X | Free Audiobook Camões (1524-1580) é o maior poeta da nossa língua, e Os Lusíadas a sua obra maior. Publicada em 1572, é poema épico em dez cantos, narrando os feitos dos Portugueses em suas guerras e descobertas marítimas, em uma visão maravilhosa e exaltada, grandiosa e de comovente patriotismo. Apesar das barreiras que se põem ao leitor moderno, as referências mitológicas às vezes recônditas, as menções a episódios e personagens históricos menos conhecidos, a sua modernidade é surpreendente e a pessoa do poeta se impõe admirável, concreta e única em sua genialidade. A força da linguagem, a beleza dos seus versos, desafia qualquer comentário. (Summary by zaaf)Camões (1524-1580) is considered Portugal's greatest poet, and Os Lusiadas, his masterpiece. Published in 1572, this epic poem in ten cantos sings of the deeds of the Portuguese in their warfare and overseas discoveries, in an exalted vision of wonder, grandiloquence and moving patriotism. Once the obvious obstacles to the modern reader are surmounted, such as arcane mythological references or mentions to lesser known historic passages and characters, the modernity of this work may be surprising, and the author's persona emerges in his unique, concrete and admirable geniality. The strength of his diction and the beauty of his verses simply defy words. (Summary translated by Leni)

Chapter 9 | Livre 6. Première partie | Free Audiobook Comme Virgile a développé l’épopée à célébrer l’origine de sa propre patrie, Milton l’a adaptée encore plus pour raconter l’origine du mal et le remède à la chute de l’homme; c’est ce sujet qu’il appelle “des choses qui n’ont encore été tentées ni en prose ni en vers.” L’auteur continue à combiner l’innovation et la tradition quand il débute le premier livre “in medias res” avec la visite au monde infernal (cf. Odyssée livre 11, l’Enéide livre 6), car la malice de Satan est le principe déterminant de l’action négative. Mais au centre du poème se trouve le triomphe du Fils de Dieu sur les anges rebelles, ce qui neutralise le projet nocif de Satan. Ce dessein de la conquête du mal par le bien se présage dans les deux conseils d’état: En enfer Satan s’engage à trouver et ruiner la nouvelle création lorsqu’au ciel le Fils s’offre comme sacrifice pour sauver l’homme avant que Satan ne l’ait corrompu.
Après ces préliminaires, nous voyons Eden et “nos premiers parents.” Satan, découvert en train de les épier, est expulsé du jardin. Puis Dieu charge un ange d’expliquer à Adam et Ève l’histoire de la guerre au ciel, où a commencé le danger imminent. À la demande d’Adam, l’ange raconte la création du monde visible et surtout le développement naturel: Toute croissance se déroule de l’assimilation de la nourriture; le mangeur épure la pâture, non pas vice versa.
Cependant, Satan, qui rentre dans le paradis sous forme de serpent, apprend à Ève à escroquer l’évolution: Il a trouvé un fruit magique qui peut la douer d’une puissance prodigieuse. Il prétend que ce fruit lui ait conféré et la raison et l’usage de la parole. Ève, qui imagine qu’Adam vient de sous-estimer sa fortitude morale, se permet d’oublier sa leçon récente et elle succombe à cette tentation. Puis, Adam, incapable d’imaginer la vie sans Ève (et sans avoir examiné des alternatives au péché), reçoit le fruit de sa femme et le goûte, lui aussi.
Néanmoins, le triomphe de Satan est éphémère, car malgré une nouvelle grand-route qui relie l’enfer au monde de l’homme, lui et ses disciples souffrent l’humiliation d’une annuelle métamorphose involontaire en serpents.
Quels que soient leurs motifs, Adam et Ève, tous les deux, ont désobéi au seul commandement de leur Créateur, et tous les deux sont condamnés à la mortalité et à l’expulsion du jardin. Cependant, avant qu’ils ne partent, Dieu leur accorde encore une leçon d’histoire, cette fois de l’avenir: le progrès du péché, l’avènement du Sauveur, et la croissance de l’église.
La prose de Chateaubriand accorde avec la syntaxe de l’original assez bien, mais l’aspiration du traducteur à la clarté l’amene à l’occasion d’anéantir certains effets subtils de l’auteur.(Thomas Copeland)

Chapter 66 | Faerie Queene VI.vi | Free Audiobook Spenser planned a 24-book romance-epic consisting of two parts, of which he completed half of the first. The first twelve books were to illustrate the development of virtues within the individual soul, and the second twelve were to depict the application of these moral virtues to remedying evils that afflict the world. Each of the first set of quests was to begin at the court of the Fairy Queen, Gloriana, and the knights were to return thither after having defeated some foe representing a personal weakness. Having thus proved themselves, they were qualified to undertake the second quests, in the world. The neat plan becomes somewhat muddled by Book 3, which nevertheless contains the philosophical core of the poem's allegorical structure: the Platonic notion that love (grace) unifies the cosmos and draws the will, through the pursuit of beauty, into virtuous action, returning to God at last in worship. The plot structure of the poem is rich and complex, with many strands interlinked and overlapping, each replete with allegorical significance. (Summary by Thomas Copeland)

Chapter 8 - The book of Religion by Devotion to the One Supreme God This work is a unique rendering of the Bagavad Gita by a well known poet.

It has been cast into flexible blank verse by Sir Arnold, changing into lyrical measures where the text itself similarly breaks. In his autobiography, Gandhi has called this work the book par excellence for the Knowledge of Truth and that it afforded him invaluable help in his moments of gloom. (Summary by Jothi)

Chapter 1 | Faerie Queene I.i | Free Audiobook Spenser planned a 24-book romance-epic consisting of two parts, of which he completed half of the first. The first twelve books were to illustrate the development of virtues within the individual soul, and the second twelve were to depict the application of these moral virtues to remedying evils that afflict the world. Each of the first set of quests was to begin at the court of the Fairy Queen, Gloriana, and the knights were to return thither after having defeated some foe representing a personal weakness. Having thus proved themselves, they were qualified to undertake the second quests, in the world. The neat plan becomes somewhat muddled by Book 3, which nevertheless contains the philosophical core of the poem's allegorical structure: the Platonic notion that love (grace) unifies the cosmos and draws the will, through the pursuit of beauty, into virtuous action, returning to God at last in worship. The plot structure of the poem is rich and complex, with many strands interlinked and overlapping, each replete with allegorical significance. (Summary by Thomas Copeland)

Chapter 1 | Calliope Fate and Sympathy - Hermann and Dorothea | Free Audiobook There are few modern poems of any country so perfect in their kind as the "Hermann and Dorothea" of Goethe. In clearness of characterization, in unity of tone, in the adjustment of background and foreground, in the conduct of the narrative, it conforms admirably to the strict canons of art; yet it preserves a freshness and spontaneity in its emotional appeal that are rare in works of so classical a perfection in form.The basis of the poem is a historical incident. In the year 1731 the Archbishop of Salzburg drove out of his diocese a thousand Protestants, who took refuge in South Germany, and among whom was a girl who became the bride of the son of a rich burgher. The occasion of the girl's exile was changed by Goethe to more recent times, and in the poem she is represented as a German from the west bank of the Rhine fleeing from the turmoil caused by the French Revolution. The political element is not a mere background, but is woven into the plot with consummate skill, being used, at one point, for example, in the characterization of Dorothea, who before the time of her appearance in the poem has been deprived of her first betrothed by the guillotine; and, at another, in furnishing a telling contrast between the revolutionary uproar in France and the settled peace of the German village.The characters of the father and the minister Goethe took over from the original incident, the mother he invented, and the apothecary he made to stand for a group of friends. But all of these persons, as well as the two lovers, are recreated, and this so skillfully that while they are made notably familiar to us as individuals, they are no less significant as permanent types of human nature. The hexameter measure which he employed, and which is retained in the present translation, he handled with such charm that it has since seemed the natural verse for the domestic idyl—witness the obvious imitation of this, as of other features of the poem, in Longfellow's "Evangeline."Taken as a whole, with its beauty of form, its sentiment, tender yet restrained, and the compelling pathos of its story, "Hermann and Dorothea" appeals to a wider public than perhaps any other product of its author. - Summary by Introduction of the book

Chapter 5 | Book V: The exploits of Diomed | Free Audiobook The Iliad, together with the Odyssey, is one of two ancient Greek epic poems traditionally attributed to Homer. The poem is commonly dated to the 8th or 7th century BC, and many scholars believe it is the oldest extant work of literature in the Greek language, making it the first work of European literature. The existence of a single author for the poems is disputed as the poems themselves show evidence of a long oral tradition and hence, multiple authors. The poem concerns events during the tenth and final year in the siege of the city of Iliun, or Troy, by the Greeks. (Summary adapted from Wikipedia by Karen Merline.)

Chapter 11 | Livre 7 | Free Audiobook Comme Virgile a développé l’épopée à célébrer l’origine de sa propre patrie, Milton l’a adaptée encore plus pour raconter l’origine du mal et le remède à la chute de l’homme; c’est ce sujet qu’il appelle “des choses qui n’ont encore été tentées ni en prose ni en vers.” L’auteur continue à combiner l’innovation et la tradition quand il débute le premier livre “in medias res” avec la visite au monde infernal (cf. Odyssée livre 11, l’Enéide livre 6), car la malice de Satan est le principe déterminant de l’action négative. Mais au centre du poème se trouve le triomphe du Fils de Dieu sur les anges rebelles, ce qui neutralise le projet nocif de Satan. Ce dessein de la conquête du mal par le bien se présage dans les deux conseils d’état: En enfer Satan s’engage à trouver et ruiner la nouvelle création lorsqu’au ciel le Fils s’offre comme sacrifice pour sauver l’homme avant que Satan ne l’ait corrompu.
Après ces préliminaires, nous voyons Eden et “nos premiers parents.” Satan, découvert en train de les épier, est expulsé du jardin. Puis Dieu charge un ange d’expliquer à Adam et Ève l’histoire de la guerre au ciel, où a commencé le danger imminent. À la demande d’Adam, l’ange raconte la création du monde visible et surtout le développement naturel: Toute croissance se déroule de l’assimilation de la nourriture; le mangeur épure la pâture, non pas vice versa.
Cependant, Satan, qui rentre dans le paradis sous forme de serpent, apprend à Ève à escroquer l’évolution: Il a trouvé un fruit magique qui peut la douer d’une puissance prodigieuse. Il prétend que ce fruit lui ait conféré et la raison et l’usage de la parole. Ève, qui imagine qu’Adam vient de sous-estimer sa fortitude morale, se permet d’oublier sa leçon récente et elle succombe à cette tentation. Puis, Adam, incapable d’imaginer la vie sans Ève (et sans avoir examiné des alternatives au péché), reçoit le fruit de sa femme et le goûte, lui aussi.
Néanmoins, le triomphe de Satan est éphémère, car malgré une nouvelle grand-route qui relie l’enfer au monde de l’homme, lui et ses disciples souffrent l’humiliation d’une annuelle métamorphose involontaire en serpents.
Quels que soient leurs motifs, Adam et Ève, tous les deux, ont désobéi au seul commandement de leur Créateur, et tous les deux sont condamnés à la mortalité et à l’expulsion du jardin. Cependant, avant qu’ils ne partent, Dieu leur accorde encore une leçon d’histoire, cette fois de l’avenir: le progrès du péché, l’avènement du Sauveur, et la croissance de l’église.
La prose de Chateaubriand accorde avec la syntaxe de l’original assez bien, mais l’aspiration du traducteur à la clarté l’amene à l’occasion d’anéantir certains effets subtils de l’auteur.(Thomas Copeland)

Chapter 4 | 04 - Canto XVI | Free Audiobook These are the last four Cantos of his mock epic that Byron completed in the year before his death at the age of 36 in Messolonghi, Greece, where he had gone to fight for the nationalists against the Ottoman Empire. Juan, now in England, is invited to spend the autumn with a hunting party at the ancient country seat of Lord Henry and Lady Adeline Amundeville. There, he meets the most intriguing of the Byronic heroines, Aurora Raby, and is visited by a ghost with ample breasts (!). That is the narrative outline but hardly the focus of the last Cantos. Byron is more interested satirizing the frailty of faith, the fecklessness of the English aristocracy, the futility of English pastimes and the fawning of elected Members of Parliament over their middle-class constituents. Booze, banquets, belles and bishops are given the Byronic treatment, while his spleen is reserved for his critics and for "tyranny". (Summary by Peter Gallagher)

It is faithful to the text and yet does not read like a translation.The Sanskrit original is written in the Anushtubh metre. It has been cast into flexible blank verse by Sir Arnold, changing into lyrical measures where the text itself similarly breaks. In his autobiography, Gandhi has called this work the book par excellence for the Knowledge of Truth and that it afforded him invaluable help in his moments of gloom. (Summary by Jothi)
