Annotations[edit | edit source]

haud ignarus malorum miseris succurrere disco     (Latin) Not at all unacquainted with misfortunes, I learn to succour the wretched.[1] The narrator (Bloom?) has adapted a line (1:630) from Virgil's epic poem the Aeneid:[2] Non ignara mali, miseris succurrere disco (Not unacquainted with misfortune, I learn to succour the wretched). Dido says this to Aeneas.
