Vergilius (70 B.C.E. - 19 B.C.E.) - in English Virgil or Vergil, Latin in full Publius Vergilius Maro The greatest Roman poet, called by Tennyson "wielder of the stateliest measure ever moulded by the lips of man." Virgil is known for his epic, the AENEID (written about 29 B.C.E., unfinished), which had taken as its literary model Homer's epic poems Iliad and Odyssey. The tale depicts Aeneas's search for a new homeland and his war to found a city. This archetypical character was given much later form in those Western heroes familiar from the books of Owen Wister and Louis L'Amour "It is easy to go down into Hell; night and day, the gates of dark Death stand wide; but to climb back again, to retrace one's steps to the upper air - there's the rub, the task." (from Aeneid After the battle of Philippi in 42 B.C.E., Virgil’s property in Cisalpine Gaul, or else his father's, was confiscated for veterans. "I leave my father's fields and my sweet ploughlands, / an exile from my native soil," wrote Virgil later in ECLOGUES. According to some sources the property was afterwards restored at the command of Octavian (later styled Augustus). In the following years Virgil spent most of his time in Campania and Sicily, but he also had a house in Rome. During the reign of emperor Augustus, Virgil became a member of his court circle and was advanced by a minister, Maecenas, patron of the arts and close friend to the poet

Virgil's Role in the Divine Comedy
In Dante's famous work, this historical figure of Virgil guides Dante on his pilgrimage through hell, purgatory, and heaven. But besides this basic function, what other roles does Virgil play in the Divine Comedy A Guide
First and foremost, on a very schematic level, Virgil is a guide. In a certain sense, Dante uses the figure of Virgil to support his fantastical journey - to answer questions to ground his narrative in a kind of familiarity. A shade native of Limbo, he has been sent on a divinely-ordained mission to steer Dante through hell and Purgatory to Beatrice. In the first two canticles, and in Inferno in particular, Virgil is in his element. He knows the ins and outs of these otherwordly realms. He knows to throw dirt in Cerberus' face to get around the watchdog, he knows to call Geryon for transportation, he even knows that Lucifer presents very little physical threat to the two travelers, and he is always explaining things to Dante. For two canticles he rarely lets Dante leave his side. In this very basic sense, Virgil is a guide: protective, gently explanatory, alert, cautious, savvy, and trustworthy.

Virgil (October 15, 70 BC-May 25, 19 BC) was a Roman poet , tour guide of the underworld, and Nike spokesperson. He became famous for his work documenting the life of basketball legend- Aeneas and being Emperor Augustus 's tame in-house bard. Also he was black and always had a witty comeback.

In the ancient world, anyone who was unemployed was either a philosopher or a poet. Virgil was a poet because philosophers still had to teach two classes a week at the forum. Work of any kind was abhorrent to Virgil. In 1982 the BBC conducted a vote to discover the 100 Laziest People of All Time , and the British public voted Virgil into 6th place. Recent archaelogical studies have shown that Virgil was a Nigger, and preffered to be called as such. In the Aeneid, he clearly states that Niggers are inferior, and this was the message he was trying to spread to the world.

Virgil Thomson
Virgil Thomson (November 25, 1896 - September 30, 1989), born in Kansas City and long resident in Paris and New York, is one of the few true modernists in America, since most of our moderns turn out Romantics in Disguise. Over and over, he demonstrates that nobody knows more about modern Europe, in pieces that taught Europe a lot about the U.S. and the U.S. a lot about Europe. He's an adept in two arts, for he also happens to be a major American prose writer, specializing in music criticism. For sheer pleasure, check out the Virgil Thomson Reader Thomson's music is almost disconcertingly spare and direct. In the consciously American pieces especially, there is a kind of aural equivalent to Cubist collage, as ragtime, waltzes, tangos, two-steps, fiddle tunes, and hymns get pasted into the texture.

Virgil Thomson
Composer, critic
Composer Virgil Thomson began his musical training at age five, and by his twelfth year he was performing professionally on both piano and organ. In the mid-1920s he settled in Paris, where he began to compose original works. There he also became part of a cosmopolitan group of avant-garde musicians, writers, and painters then dominating the cultural life of the city. A close friend was the expatriate American writer Gertrude Stein, who wrote the librettos for his operas Four Saints in Three Acts and The Mother of Us All , the latter based on the life of suffragist Susan B. Anthony. By the late 1930s, Thomson was writing music for movies, and in 1948 his score for the film Louisiana Story won a Pulitzer Prize. Thomson was also a major spokesman for the new directions of twentieth-century music as critic for the New York Herald-Tribune from 1940 to 1954. Alice Neel painted many of her colleagues in the world of arts and letters, particularly those in New York City, her home for many years. As she painted, Neel sometimes exaggerated the effect that the body or expression of her sitter had on her own mind. After Thomson's sitting, she wrote, "When I painted the trousers I must confess I thought of elephants so that is the color they really are."

VIRGIL GARNETT THOMSON
A s America celebrates the centenary of Virgil Thomson's birth in 1896 with revivals of his works and a new biography in preparation, there is increasing awareness of what a musician's musician this composer and critic truly was. As a composer he created over 150 compositions which skillfully melded indigenous and cosmopolitan influences, while as a writer and lecturer, he devoted himself energetically to elevating musical standards and taste, to creating a wider public for classical music, and to creating a legacy of some of the most elegant, urbane, and intelligent prose that modern music journalism has witnessed.
Returning to Harvard in 1922, he took his degree in 1923. For the next three years he commuted between New York and Boston where he served as organist for the King's Chapel, and he began to contribute serious music journalism to publications like Mencken's American Mercury and Vanity Fair. It was not long, however, before Europe would once again exert its siren call, and for the next sixteen years he would cross the Atlantic frequently. In 1927 he journeyed to Spain to collaborate with Gertrude Stein on their opera, FOUR SAINTS IN THREE ACTS, which they completed in 1928. That same year also produced his SYMPHONY ON A HYMN TUNE, as well as the first of a genre he can be credited with inventing: the musical portrait.
