What's up with Line 872 of Aeneid Book 10

It's in parenthesis, and it's not in any translations apart from the Blue book. It's either added or it could be an apostrophe by the pastoral poet himself.

What version of the text are you looking at?

Does it go 'et furiis agitatus amor, et conscia virtus'?

2011: University...whichever will take me

T]he more people try to relax you with their shallow words, the more your stress-o-metre should be rising. The more they lie to you with their bullsh$% [sic], know [y]ou've obviously become a marker to the world saying "my intelligence is beyond redemption“.

Sure does. Do you have it in your edition?

It carries on from previous lines as i have it:

'...aestuat ingens
uno in corde pudor mixtoque insania iuctu,
et furiis agitatus amor, et conscia virtus.'

So merely describes Mezentius state of mind as he went to try and avenge his son's death. Only real technique there is a bit of assonance which make various elements of the passage stand out.

Good luck tomorrow :)

according to the leob, the line at 10.872 isn't there in all manuscripts, but has been copied from 12.668 in three of them, which is the et furiis line you have.
