Aeneid 9: lines 420 - 437


saevit atrox Volcens nec teli conspicit usquam      420

auctorem nec quo se ardens immittere possit.

'tu tamen interea calido mihi sanguine poenas

persolves amborum' inquit; simul ense recluso

ibat in Euryalum. tum vero exterritus, amens,

conclamat Nisus nec se celare tenebris               425

amplius aut tantum potuit perferre dolorem:

'me, me, adsum qui feci, in me convertite ferrum,

o Rutuli! mea fraus omnis, nihil iste nec ausus

nec potuit; caelum hoc et conscia sidera testor;

tantum infelicem nimium dilexit amicum.'               430

talia dicta dabat, sed viribus ensis adactus

transadigit costas et candida pectora rumpit.

volvitur Euryalus leto, pulchrosque per artus

it cruor inque umeros cervix conlapsa recumbit:

purpureus veluti cum flos succisus aratro               435

languescit moriens, lassove papavera collo

demisere caput pluvia cum forte gravantur.

John Hazel - adjudicator


Some tutor and candidate comments:


“We had great fun preparing and impressed other staff - hearing Korean and Chinese students speaking Latin in Korea is quite something!

Here are the Senior entries , which are from a Y11 lunchtime beginners' Latin club,  It's been good reading Virgil with them!

Enjoy the adjudication - it's a great passage!”

Judy Nesbit, NLCS, Jeju


“The girls really get a lot out of entering.”

Margaret Baird - Malvern St. James


“We didn't have much time to practise, but we enjoyed recording them.”
