VIRGIL- AENEID, LIB. I., II., or III.

PART I. Translate into English :-
Atque utinam his potius nugis tota illa dedisset
Tempora saevitiae, claras quibus abstulit urbi
Illustresque animas impune et vindice nullo !

Quique cruore
Saepe Phrygum maduit, domini nunc caede madebit,
Ne quisquam Ajacem possit superare, nisi Ajax.
Ille e concilio multis cum millibus ibat
Ad tumulum, magna medius comitante caterva.

Also ONE ONLY of the following passages :-
(A.) For those oNLY who are examined in Book I.
Tum foribus divae, media testudine templi,
Septa armis solioque alte subnixa resedit.
Jura dabat legesque viris, operumque laborem
Partibus aequabat justis, aut sorte trahebat;
Quum subito Aeneas concursu accedere magno
Anthea Sergestumque videt fortemque Cloanthum.
Teucrorumque alios, ater quos aequore turbo
Dispulerat, penitusque alias avexerat oras.

(B.) For those only who are examined in Book II.
Tunc etiam fatis aperit Cassandra futuris
Ora, dei jussu non unquam credita Teucris.
Nos delubra deum miseri, quibus ultimus esset
Ille dies, festa yelamus fronde per urbem.
Vertitur interea coelum, et ruit oceano nox,
Involvens umbra magna terramque polumque,
Myrmidonumque dolos ; fusi per moenia Teucri
Conticuere ; sopor fessos complectitur artus.
