Prof Knox of the classics dies at 95

Holed up in an abandoned villa, he discovered a bound copy of Virgil and opened it to a section of the first Georgic that begins, “Here right and wrong are reversed; so many wars in the world, so many faces of evil.”

More you study the classics more you are convinced all thoughts have been thought wars have been fought . Question remains why are we still fighting even in the atomic age.

Virgil had history foretold .

This is going on after pearl harbor,hiroshima and nagasaki,9/11 ,partition of India,chinese cultural revolution,Conquests and other wars.Taliban,Korean war,Gulags,concentration camps and other miseries.11/26 and 7/11 .
