In this highly praised new translation of Boethius's The Consolation of Philosophy, David R. Slavitt presents a graceful, accessible, and modern version for both longtime admirers of one of the great masterpieces of philosophical literature and those encountering it for the first time. Slavitt preserves the distinction between the alternating verse and prose sections in the Latin original, allowing us to appreciate the Menippian parallels between the discourses of literary and logical inquiry. His prose translations are lively and colloquial, conveying the argumentative, occasionally bantering tone of the original, while his verse translations restore the beauty and power of Boethius's poetry. The result is a major contribution to the art of translation. Those less familiar with Consolation may remember it was written under a death sentence. Boethius (c. 480-524), an Imperial official under Theodoric, Ostrogoth ruler of Rome, found himself, in a time of political paranoia, denounced, arrested, and then executed two years later without a trial. Composed while its author was imprisoned, cut off from family and friends, it remains one of Western literature's most eloquent meditations on the transitory nature of earthly belongings, and the superiority of things of the mind. In an artful combination of verse and prose, Slavitt captures the energy and passion of the original. And in an introduction intended for the general reader, Seth Lerer places Boethius's life and achievement in context.… (mere)

This was a great philosophy book by an extremely keen and agile mind that explores many topics. The format is good, the wisdom is plentiful, and the overall writing is strong. This is a great book for those interested in classics and those who are intrigued by philosophy.

4 stars! ( )

The Penguin Classics translation by Victor Watts has a very helpful introduction and footnotes. Books I and II held my interest, but by the time I got to Book V and the arguments about divine perception of time it was a struggle to keep my mind from wandering. ( )

> « La Consolation de la Philosophie », Traduit du latin par MC., 1771 - 250 p. - Éd. Nataraj
Ce livre, écrit au VIe siècle dans une prison romaine peu avant la mise à mort de son auteur, est un classique de la Sophia. --Revue 3e millénaire, Hiver 1997

One of C.S. Lewis' favorite books. I gave a copy to my father as a Christmas gift in 2007.

I enjoyed first half of the Book, especially the poetic part.

However, In the later part of his book, he dabbles in theological knots. I would recommend this to someone who enjoys Aurelius, or thinks highly of Stoic philosophy.

To my Surprise, Boethius doesn't talk about the person of Christ, maybe because he just wanted to write philosophy for consolation.

"'The Consolation of Philosophy', composed in jail, here inspires a former prisoner [in Lebanon] to write a moving preface [to the Folio edition].

While I was thus mutely pondering within myself, and recording my sorrowful complainings with my pen, it seemed to me that there appeared above my head a woman of a countenance exceeding venerable.
