  25. 25. Villa usibus capax, non sumptuosa tutela. 4 Cuius in prima parte atrium frugi, nec tamen sordidum; deinde porticus in D litterae similitudinem circumactae, quibus parvola sed festiva area includitur. Egregium hac adversus tempestates receptaculum; nam specularibus ac multo magis imminentibus rectis muniuntur. 5 Est contra medias cavaedium hilare, mox triclinium satis pulchrum, quod in litus excurrit ac si quando Africo mare impulsum est, fractis iam et novissimis fluctibus leviter alluitur. Undique valvas aut fenestras non minores valvis habet atque ita a lateribus a fronte quasi tria maria prospectat; a tergo cavaedium porticum aream porticum rursus, mox atrium silvas et longinquos respicit montes. 6 Huius a laeva retractius paulo cubiculum est amplum, deinde aliud minus quod altera fenestra admittit orientem, occidentem altera retinet; hac et subiacens mare longius quidem sed securius intuetur. 7 Huius cubiculi et triclinii illius obiectu includitur angulus, qui purissimum solem continet et accendit.

  31. 31. Horace, Satires ii.6 Hoc erat in votis: modus agri non ita magnus, hortus ubi et tecto vicinus iugis aquae fons et paulum silvae super his foret. auctius atque di melius fecere. bene est. nil amplius oro, Maia nate, nisi ut propria haec mihi munera faxis. 5 si neque maiorem feci ratione mala rem nec sum facturus vitio culpave minorem, si veneror stultus nihil horum 'o si angulus ille proximus accedat, qui nunc denormat agellum!' 'o si urnam argenti fors quae mihi monstret, ut illi, 10 thesauro invento qui mercennarius agrum illum ipsum mercatus aravit, dives amico Hercule!', si quod adest gratum iuvat, hac prece te oro: pingue pecus domino facias et cetera praeter ingenium, utque soles, custos mihi maximus adsis. 15 ergo ubi me in montes et in arcem ex urbe removi, quid prius inlustrem saturis musaque pedestri? nec mala me ambitio perdit nec plumbeus auster autumnusque gravis, Libitinae quaestus acerbae. Matutine pater, seu Iane libentius audis, 20 unde homines operum primos vitaeque labores instituunt—sic dis placitum—, tu carminis esto principium. Romae sponsorem me rapis: 'eia, ne prior officio quisquam respondeat, urge.' sive aquilo radit terras seu bruma nivalem 25 interiore diem gyro trahit, ire necesse est. postmodo quod mi obsit clare certumque locuto luctandum in turba et facienda iniuria tardis. 'quid tibi vis, insane?' et 'quam rem agis?' inprobus urget iratis precibus, 'tu pulses omne quod obstat, 30 ad Maecenatem memori si mente recurras.'
  32. 32. Villa Project Afterlife Grade 9
  33. 33. Villa As Bucolic Ideal Golden Age Latin Poetry - The Country Villa as Prelapsarian Retreat from the Corrupt City
  34. 34. Horace, Odes 3.13 Velox amoenum saepe Lucretilem mutat Lycaeo Faunus et igneam In swift passage Faunus often changes defendit aestatem capellis Lycaeus for fair Lucretilis, and wards off usque meis pluviosque ventos. from my goats the fiery heat and rainy winds during all his stay. impune tutum per nemus arbutos quaerunt latentes et thyma deviae Harmlessly through safe thickets do the roaming olentis uxores mariti, consorts of the rank he-goat hunt the hiding arbutus nec viridis metuunt colubras and thyme. Nor do the kids have fear of poisonous snakes or of the wolf, the war god's favourite, nec Martialis haediliae lupos, utcumque dulci, Tyndari, fistula when once, O Tyndaris, sloping Ustica's valles et Vsticae cubantis vales and smooth-worn rocks have echoed levia personuere saxa. with the sweet pipe. di me tuentur, dis pietas mea et Musa cordi est. Hic tibi copia The gods are my protection; to the gods both manabit ad plenum benigno my devotion and ruris honorum opulenta cornu. my muse are dear. hic in reducta valle Caniculae vitabis aestus, et fide Teia In this spot shall rich abundance of the glories of the field flow dices laborantis in uno to the full for thee from bounteous horn. Here in retired valley Penelopen vitreamque Circen; shalt thou escape the dog-star's heat, and sing on Teian lyre Penelope and Circe of the glassy sea, enamoured of the self-same hero. hic innocentis pocula Lesbii duces sub umbra, nec Semeleius Here shalt thou quaff bowls of harmless cum Marte confundet Thyoneus Mellow wine beneath the shade, nor shall Thyoneus, proelia, nec metues protervum child of Semele, engage in broils with Mars. Nor shalt thou, watched with jealous eye, fear the suspecta Cyrum, ne male dispari incontinentes iniciat manus wanton Cyrus, lest he lay rude hands on et scindat haerentem coronam thee, a partner ill-suited to his cruel ways, or crinibus inmeritamque vestem. lest he rend the garland clinging to thy locks, or thy unoffending robe.
  35. 35. Villa as Socio-Political Entity As boys deepen their understanding of Roman history, they learn that these villas were only made possible when the wealthy pushed poorer farmers off their land and into the crowded cities The “villa,” then becomes a symbol, the abuse of power by the wealthy, the dislocation of the poor, the subsequent political unrest generated by these Country Pleasure Palaces
  36. 36. Study of Julius Caesar in 9th Grade Studying Caesar and reading his commentaries on the Civil War, the boys are able to see how the massive disparities between the Upper and Lower classes resulted in turbulent, political urest Boys are also able to read, in Caesar’s own words, how he manipulated the political situation to become dictator for life, thus ending the Republic
