    Wounded Muses tell me what I must write, and elegiac verses bathe my face with real tears. They were disgraced only because they had been trained in my studies and therefore seemed obnoxious to wicked men. If he knows it, he needs must fear to lose a happiness whose loss he believes to be possible. Fortune's hate hath not involved all thy dear ones; the stress of the storm that has assailed thee is not beyond measure intolerable, since there are anchors still holding firm which suffer thee not to lack either consolation in the present or hope for the future.

    But listen now, and cease to let thy heart consume away with fretfulness, nor expect to live on thine own terms in a realm that is common to all. She heedeth not the wail of hapless woe, Boethius Consolatio Philosophiae book mocks the griefs that from her mischief flow. This interpretation perfectly fitted with the Christian doctrine of humility and played an important role in the later Christian philosophy of consolation according to which suffering from evil will be rewarded in the afterlife. At the time of his birth, however, the Western Roman Empire no longer existed. Besides, the more favoured a man is by Fortune, the more fastidiously sensitive is he; and, unless all things answer to his whim, he is overwhelmed by the most trifling misfortunes, because utterly unschooled in adversity. The very thing which is now the cause of thy great grief ought to have brought thee tranquillity.

    A seventeenth-century translation of the Consolatio Philosophiae is here presented with such alterations as are demanded by a better text, and the require xiv ments of modern scholarship. The Consolatio isnot, as has been maintained, a mere patchwork of translations from Aristotle and the Neoplatonists. Excerpted by permission of Dover Publications, Inc. If the fruition of any earthly success has weight in the scale of happiness, can the memory of that splendour be swept away by any rising flood of troubles?
