Darius Analysis

Author: poem of C.P. Cavafy Type: poem Views: 5

Sponsored Links

The poet Phernazis is composing

the important part of his epic poem.

How Darius, son of Hystaspes,

assumed the kingdom of the Persians. (From him

is descended our glorious king

Mithridates, Dionysus and Eupator). But here

philosophy is needed; he must analyze

the sentiments that Darius must have had:

maybe arrogance and drunkenness; but no -- rather

like an understanding of the vanity of grandeurs.

The poet contemplates the matter deeply.

But he is interrupted by his servant who enters

running, and announces the portendous news.

The war with the Romans has begun.

The bulk of our army has crossed the borders.

The poet is speechless. What a disaster!

No time now for our glorious king

Mithridates, Dionysus and Eupator,

to occupy himself with greek poems.

In the midst of a war -- imagine, greek poems.

Phernazis is impatient. Misfortune!

Just when he was positive that with "Darius"

he would distinguish himself, and shut the mouths

of his critics, the envious ones, for good.

What a delay, what a delay to his plans.

And if it were only a delay, it would still be all right.

But it yet remains to be seen if we have any security

at Amisus. It is not a strongly fortified city.

The Romans are the most horrible enemies.

Can we hold against them

we Cappadocians? It is possible at all?

It is possible to pit ourselves against the legions?

Mighty Gods, protectors of Asia, help us.--

But in all his turmoil and trouble,

the poetic idea too comes and goes persistently--

the most probable, surely, is arrogance and drunkenness;

Darius must have felt arrogance and drunkenness.

Hi David,I explained it in my main , but I'll glaldy tell you more. You can use Clickbank or Amazon Associates (you can double check by signing up, it's free) in A Australia. The good part about Twin Peak Profits is that anyone can do it, dashboard/layout is simple to use and you're told exactly what to do in each step. If that wasn't enough, you also get tons of other resources like training videos. But remember how much you make depends mainly on you, so if YOU want make money and will put in the effort you can do it. I hope that helps,డారియస్

The girl was cutting her hair for her bhroter because he had cancer. She was cutting her own hair because her older bhroter had none. He didn’t have any hair because of the chemotherapy treatment. I felt really bad for the boy who had cancer because he would feel different than others. But of course Allah (STW) treats and cures the cancer. If I figured out I had cancer (god forbid) I would feel like it’s the end of the world. So the hair the girl cut was for her bhroter who had cancer, she could also give the extra hair to others in need. When the girl’s bhroter received her cut hair, he gave her his cap to wear because her hair was cut. We all should say Allhamduellah that we don’t have cancer or any other kind of disease (Allah Kareem). For the people with cancer it's a test from Allah (STW). If they would ask themselves why they had cancer or would they agree with what they have. Remember Allah (STW) is the most generous.
