ELYSSA'S BOX - the elegiac approach

Aeneas set course resolutely. As he sailed the Troyens looked back to walled Carthage, now aglow with tragic Dido'd flames. They knew how bitter are the agonies when intense love is outraged and the knowledge started a train of thought sombre with presentiment.

after Virgil, The Aeneid V 1-7, translated by W.F. Jackson Knight
