PHLEGRAEAN FIELDS THE BURNING EARTH

PHLEGRAEAN FIELDS THE BURNING EARTH

In these places nature shows its rarest and most wonderful phenomena [...]
In these lands, Poets with their fruitful ideas imagined the descent into Avernus; the Elisi Fields; the Stygian Swamp, and Acherusia; the passage of Charon's boat; the quarrels between Ceres and Bacchus; and the Flegrei Fields, where they won the war, which the Giants had moved to the Gods. Here Virgil modeled his admirable sixth book of the Aeneid.

Lorenzo Paladino, 1826
