Similarities Between Apollo And Aphrodite
Both Homeric hymns to Apollo and Aphrodite feature classic mythology that explains various
situations between the god and goddess and the mortals. In particular how each god and goddess
elude mortals into behavior that both favors each party and has negative consequences. Apollo and
Aphrodite have similarities and differences in which they manipulate the humans in the stories that
lead to very different outcomes. A similarity between the manipulation on Apollo's and Aphrodite's
part is that they each have a clear motive before their actions begin and some differences are that
they have very different intentions and methods of the manipulation.
A Similarity of both Apollo and Aphrodite manipulation is the revelations of the motives are
revealed before their actions take place. In the first Homeric Hymn to Aphrodite, the story describes
the beautiful, virgin goddess who falls in love with the mortal, Anchises. Aphrodite eludes the most
powerful Greek god Zeus and in retaliation, Zeus forces Aphrodite to fall in love with a mortal
which eventually leads to her falling in love with Anchises and have sex with him. Aphrodite
intentions are made clear before any actions take place and is described, "And when she saw him,
Aphrodite, lover of laughter, she loved him, and a terrifying desire seized her heart" (Aphrodite 87–
88). Comparing this hymn to the second Homeric Hymn to apollo, the story has similarities to the
story of Aphrodite. For example, Apollo also reveals his

Essay on Fate of the Passionate in Virgil's Aeneid
Virgil's The Aeneid, to this day, remains one of the most influential epics to ever grace the merciless
limitations of manuscript, inspiring, in pop culture as well as literature, an onslaught of themes,
mythology, values, and the general sense of what a hero must be–or do– in order to overcome the
obstacles of the gods and man. Written somewhere between 29 and 19 BC, consisting of twelve
books (although never completely finished), The Aeneid takes us through the turbulent journeys and
prophesied triumphs of Aeneas, a warrior and man bound by piety and destiny. Like usual, in every
great epic, there are many battles: heads gashed open and gore galore; however, to say that this ...

Unfortunately, but not unexpected, Creusa, being left behind in the rear, disappears; and, before he
leaves, she reappears before Aeneas in spirit. It is only then that he realizes that she had been killed
in their hasty withdraw: his first, or so the manuscript reveals to me, loss of heart and love. Now,
relating to Aeneas, and possibly to Virgil, I can't help but feel the pain in Aeneas's reflection on that
particular scene: She spoke and faded into the insubstantial air, leaving me there in tears and longing
to reply. Three times I tried to put my arms around her neck. Three times her phantom melted in my
arms, as weightless as the wind, as light as the flight of sleep. (47) When I left to join the Army, four
or five years ago, I felt the same way about leaving my love behind, my fiancée, and judging by the
words above, regardless of whether or not they are archaic, they hold my memory and pain of
leaving; however, unlike Aeneas, my love didn't die. She just abandoned me when it was time for
me to leave, the ghost of her face lingering in my minds eye and the scent of her perfume forever
embedded within my flesh. As Aeneas continues to explain his journey to Dido, describing his
wanderings, he fails to mention Creusa any further, probably for two reasons: one, Virgil saw that
the particular plot device had served its

Theme Of Family In The Aeneid
Throughout the Aeneid there are several recurring themes that shape the story. One of the biggest
themes is family. Without the idea of family Aeneas has less motivation to go on his journey. The
gods use this against him when attempting to persuade Aeneas to continue embarking on the quest
he has been on. Anchises, Aeneas' father meets with Aeneas as well and gives his perspective on
Aeneas' journey and includes a lot of arguments about family. Anchises has a strong concern for
family as well, and it is evident in the underworld when Aeneas and Anchises meet. Aeneas'
growing concern for his family is evident in lines 847–882. The idea of losing someone or multiple
people is discussed "Vel quae, Tiberine, videbis funeral, cum tumulum praeterlabere recentem!" This
is Anchises asking, " O Tiber when shall thou glide by the fresh made tomb?" Anchises also asks
what funeral rights there are. This stresses that the characters are concerned with death and may
even be foreshadowing a death or multiple in the near future. Additionally, this concern for death
obviously demonstrates the care Aeneas has for his family. Family is often directly discussed in this
passage as well, specifically Anchises, the father of Aeneas, who says, " tum pater Anchises lacrimis
ingressus obortis" / "Then, father Anchises began rising with tears" Virgil introduces Anchises,
Aeneas' father into this passage because Anchises goes on to discuss the journey Aeneas is on, the
dangers of it, and that

Similarities Between Apollo And Aphrodite

  • 1. Similarities Between Apollo And Aphrodite Both Homeric hymns to Apollo and Aphrodite feature classic mythology that explains various situations between the god and goddess and the mortals. In particular how each god and goddess elude mortals into behavior that both favors each party and has negative consequences. Apollo and Aphrodite have similarities and differences in which they manipulate the humans in the stories that lead to very different outcomes. A similarity between the manipulation on Apollo's and Aphrodite's part is that they each have a clear motive before their actions begin and some differences are that they have very different intentions and methods of the manipulation. A Similarity of both Apollo and Aphrodite manipulation is the revelations of the motives are revealed before their actions take place. In the first Homeric Hymn to Aphrodite, the story describes the beautiful, virgin goddess who falls in love with the mortal, Anchises. Aphrodite eludes the most powerful Greek god Zeus and in retaliation, Zeus forces Aphrodite to fall in love with a mortal which eventually leads to her falling in love with Anchises and have sex with him. Aphrodite intentions are made clear before any actions take place and is described, "And when she saw him, Aphrodite, lover of laughter, she loved him, and a terrifying desire seized her heart" (Aphrodite 87– 88). Comparing this hymn to the second Homeric Hymn to apollo, the story has similarities to the story of Aphrodite. For example, Apollo also reveals his ... Get more on HelpWriting.net ...
  • 3. Essay on Fate of the Passionate in Virgil's Aeneid Virgil's The Aeneid, to this day, remains one of the most influential epics to ever grace the merciless limitations of manuscript, inspiring, in pop culture as well as literature, an onslaught of themes, mythology, values, and the general sense of what a hero must be–or do– in order to overcome the obstacles of the gods and man. Written somewhere between 29 and 19 BC, consisting of twelve books (although never completely finished), The Aeneid takes us through the turbulent journeys and prophesied triumphs of Aeneas, a warrior and man bound by piety and destiny. Like usual, in every great epic, there are many battles: heads gashed open and gore galore; however, to say that this ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ... Unfortunately, but not unexpected, Creusa, being left behind in the rear, disappears; and, before he leaves, she reappears before Aeneas in spirit. It is only then that he realizes that she had been killed in their hasty withdraw: his first, or so the manuscript reveals to me, loss of heart and love. Now, relating to Aeneas, and possibly to Virgil, I can't help but feel the pain in Aeneas's reflection on that particular scene: She spoke and faded into the insubstantial air, leaving me there in tears and longing to reply. Three times I tried to put my arms around her neck. Three times her phantom melted in my arms, as weightless as the wind, as light as the flight of sleep. (47) When I left to join the Army, four or five years ago, I felt the same way about leaving my love behind, my fiancée, and judging by the words above, regardless of whether or not they are archaic, they hold my memory and pain of leaving; however, unlike Aeneas, my love didn't die. She just abandoned me when it was time for me to leave, the ghost of her face lingering in my minds eye and the scent of her perfume forever embedded within my flesh.

  • 5. Theme Of Family In The Aeneid Throughout the Aeneid there are several recurring themes that shape the story. One of the biggest themes is family. Without the idea of family Aeneas has less motivation to go on his journey. The gods use this against him when attempting to persuade Aeneas to continue embarking on the quest he has been on. Anchises, Aeneas' father meets with Aeneas as well and gives his perspective on Aeneas' journey and includes a lot of arguments about family. Anchises has a strong concern for family as well, and it is evident in the underworld when Aeneas and Anchises meet. Aeneas' growing concern for his family is evident in lines 847–882. The idea of losing someone or multiple people is discussed "Vel quae, Tiberine, videbis funeral, cum tumulum praeterlabere recentem!" This is Anchises asking, " O Tiber when shall thou glide by the fresh made tomb?" Anchises also asks what funeral rights there are. This stresses that the characters are concerned with death and may even be foreshadowing a death or multiple in the near future. Additionally, this concern for death obviously demonstrates the care Aeneas has for his family. Family is often directly discussed in this passage as well, specifically Anchises, the father of Aeneas, who says, " tum pater Anchises lacrimis ingressus obortis" / "Then, father Anchises began rising with tears" Virgil introduces Anchises, Aeneas' father into this passage because Anchises goes on to discuss the journey Aeneas is on, the dangers of it, and that ...

  • 7. Theme Of Water In The Aeneid The Aeneid presents various themes throughout the course of Aeneas's journeys, but I noticed that particularly in Books I and VI the theme of water is very prevalent and important. First we see when Aeolus stirs up the storm, water causes so much destruction and it is completely out of Aeneas's control. Then as he is crossing over to the underworld, Aeneas encounters Charon and the river of Styx, where the whirlpool is murky, unknown, and dangerous. Overall, water is depicted as a dangerous uncertainty in Aeneas's world. It is extremely powerful and has the potential to do so much damage, however it can also be still and murky. Vergil uses imagery and descriptive diction to enhance the theme of water as perilous and unknown throughout The Aeneid. The theme of water is prevalent from the opening lines of the Aeneid book 1, however it is best expressed through lines 81–130 where we see Aeolus stir up a storm against Aeneas's ships. This idea that the water is unknown, dangerous, and out of people's control is particularly evident throughout this excerpt. "Talia iactanti stridens Aquilone procella velum adversa ferit, fluctusque ad sidera tollit. Franguntur remi; tum prora avertit, et undis dat latus; insequitur cumulo praeruptus aquae mons.

  • 9. Aeneid Character Analysis The Aeneid is an epic poem about the man whose descendants will found Rome. Aeneas, is portrayed as a warrior and leader to his people and, as his name represents, stayed duty–bound to his destiny to get to Italy to found Rome. Aeneas first exhibits many great qualities as a leader, he is probably not a perfect leader but he has the best leadership skills out of all the other characters in the Aeneid. In other words, Aeneas becomes the golden standard for leadership that Virgil portrays. Second, although Aeneas often seems to stray from his path or become disheartened, he remains duty–bound to his task and is readily able to rally his men and make allies. Even though Aeneas makes mistakes or loses heart, he still is able to perform the role of leader quite adequately throughout the Aeneid. Lastly, the point of all of this, what could be argued Virgil is trying to promote with his epic poem, is that being a leader means to be something bigger than one's self. As Aeneas, and Augustus may also, find out is that leadership often involves many sacrifices and hardship. This means that the Aeneid conveys a message of sacrifice for the good of one's country, that it is an honorable duty that must be performed no matter the circumstances or chance of success. Moving on, Aeneas demonstrates an excellent character of leadership throughout the Aeneid, even through flawed behavior does Aeneas showcase his leadership abilities, and all of this ties back to what it means to be a great ...

All three of these works are very similar when it comes to the theme. The theme is obviously the Greek and Roman myth of Aeneas carrying his father, Anchises, on his back. Although the theme is the same on all works of art, there are some minor details that set these figures apart. The first work of art pictured (figure 1), is the vase of "Aeneas carries Anchises" that was made in the 5th century of BCE. In this work of art Aeneas is fully equipped in armor and weapons. He is built strong and sturdy and seems to have no trouble carrying his father on his back. Anchises is also holding a weapon of some sort, only holding on to Aeneas with one arm. Both Aeneas and Anchises are painted to be strong and ready for battle. Many works of art focusing on this particular theme are not depicted this way. ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ...

  • 13. Dido's Common Use Of Love In Aeneid There are two integral pieces of love in Virgil's epic Aeneid: the romantic, lustful love (as felt by Dido for Aeneas) and the grounded, honest, family love (as felt between Aeneas and Anchises). There is a dynamic relationship between the two sides of love which causes each to emphasize the other – an emphasis that is facilitated by Virgil's common use of fire and flame imagery to describe both types of love. Upon analyzing the lustful episode between Dido and Aeneas and the image of Aeneas fleeing troy bearing his father, Anchises, on his back and holding his sons hand (beautifully sculpted by Bernini, see attached), it becomes clear that the love in each situation is very different, despite the common use of the Latin ...

However, because their love will be consummated sexually, this desire could literally be a sense of physical arousal. As Aeneas tells Dido of his destiny to "sail for Italy not of [his] own free will," (IV.499) he begs Dido to release him from the pain that their love causes. So please, no more / Of these appeals that set us both afire. (IV.497–498) Literally, he begs for it to end. He begs for the fire to be put out and the romantic, lustful love to cease. As Aeneas leaves, Dido is overcome with a maddened "fire." From far away I shall come after you / With my black fires, and when cold death has parted / Body from soul I shall be everywhere / A shade to haunt you! (IV.533–536) Dido is now consumed by her own "inward fire" and it causes her to pledge to haunt Aeneas with "black fire," a sign of pure evil. She vows that Aeneas "will pay for this," (IV.536). Noting the transformation from the use of "inward fire" as a medium for "desire" to a more hysterical, crazed type of passion is essential in understanding the ultimate failure of romantic and lustful love in the

Many are directed toward Aeneas, but some are to his relatives and friends. The prophecies shown allow the reader to better understand the situation and also provide insight about Rome. Prophecies are an important key to The Aeneid. Prophecies are very important to Virgil's The Aeneid. Early on, Virgil does not hide what will happen, but instead, he allows the reader insight through many prophecies. In the first few lines, Juno makes the statement "that generations born of Trojan blood would one day overthrow her Tyrian walls." (32). In predicting this, she allows us, the reader, to understand that all of the characters knows what is happening and it is just a matter of time before the Trojans will take over Carthage. The prophecy Virgil projects through Juno is not only a prophecy seen in the book, but Virgil also wants the reader to acknowledge that this prophecy is a representation of what will happen to Rome in the future. Also in Book I, still very near the beginning, another prophecy is seen. During the storm (128), Aeneas is remembering all of the people he knew that died in the battle. He begins to pray for all of them and he asks why his life was not taken too. Aeneas wonders why all of the strong warriors died and his life was spared.

In this epic poem, there are mentions from Virgil's historical context, like the progress of Augustus' rise to power and the tragedies of the Late Republic's civil wars. Virgil lived through the first age of the Roman Empire, amid the rule of the sovereign Octavian, later known as Augustus. Civil war came up between Octavian, Antony, and Lepidus. Octavian and Antony were the only ones remaining by 36 B.C.; they eventually began warring against each other. In 31 B.C., the Battle of Actium ended with Octavian defeating Antony and his ally Cleopatra of Egypt, thereby establishing himself as sole ruler of Rome, making him the first emperor of Ancient Rome.

Relationship Between Father And Fate In The Odyssey Father and Son Relationships Determine Fate and Destiny The Odyssey, by Homer, is one of the most influential texts of Western literature and it is paralleled to The Aeneid, by Virgil. Father and son relationships are very important to Greek culture, as evident in the relationship between Odysseus and Telémakhos in The Odyssey. Hundreds of years after The Odyssey was transcribed, Virgil continued to recognize the importance of the father and son relationship and he incorporated it into The Aeneid by focusing on Anchises and Aeneas. Both epics revolve around and delve into the valued father and son relationship. This relationship is so important to Greek and Roman culture that it has an effect on the idea of fate and destiny. Throughout The Odyssey and The Aeneid, the relationship between the father and son is responsible for determining their fate and destiny. The fate of Odysseus and Anchises is thoroughly influenced by their respective sons. Throughout Odysseus's journey, Odysseus wants to give up because of all the hardships he has to face. His son, Telémakhos, serves as his motivation for coming home and drives his will to live and fight his hardships at sea. At one point, Odysseus considers giving up so he will not need to face "'the sea raging/ under such winds'" anymore (Homer 5.314–315).

Him thereafter did smiling Aphrodite see and love, and measureless desire took hold of her heart" (Classical Myth 198). Zeus picked Anchises to give Aphrodite a taste of her own medicine, and made Aphrodite fall in love with the mortal. Zeus punished Aphrodite because she was causing the gods to fall in love with a bunch of mortal women (theoi). At first glance Aphrodite was "smitten like a kitten" over Anchises. In order for Aphrodite to seduce Anchises's she had to disguise herself as a Phrygian princess. Anchises knew better though when he first met "Aphrodite", he thought that she had to be a goddess.

Scully and Fletcher (1987) reveal various episodes of death that are depicted in a simple manner that appeals to all readers. Since people are ignorant of complex messages and/or will only pay simple attention to written information, Virgil fully exploits this aspect while talking about death. For instance, he says, "At Dido's head she came to rest...And out into the winds her life withdrew" (Virgil, 2008, p. 971). Death is feared by all people. In fact, the mention of death causes alarm and attention. Virgil exploits the simplest way of awakening and pulling the attention and concentration of readers by depicting death in a simple way. For example, leaders that are involved in various wars before their deaths have a secluded magnificent place in the underworld as seen in Aeneas words, "there are souls that go from here...Aloft to upper heaven" (Virgil, 2008, p. 965). This move enhances the war propaganda that leaders can kill their opponents whilst being honored by gods. Death is painted in a way that warrants no attention of the reader. According to Heiny (2013), Virgil also emphasizes reincarnation that people will live again after death. This propaganda on death as not being eternal further simplifies the idea of death. The propaganda is meant to prepare Romans to volunteer in war to channel their energies and life to defending the opponents of their kingdom as seen in Jupiter's words, "What privilege for these, your ships...Shall hulls that mortal hands have made enjoy a right...That only immortals have" (Virgil, 2008, pp. 132–135). People are also persuaded to be good to their families, neighbors, and other citizens in order to have a good place in the underworld and/or during rebirth.

  • 30. Aeneas, The Titular Hero Of Virgil 's Aeneid Aeneas, the titular hero of Virgil's Aeneid, is the flawed Trojan hero sent on a divine quest to found the new Troy and establish the basis for the Roman Empire. Along this journey, he is pushed to his limits both mentally and physically. This strain shows him to be a deeply Roman hero, especially in the values that come forward in his actions and response to tragedy. He embodies two major Roman values: pietas and respect for family, both past and future. One of the most important values that Aeneas embodies is pietas. Pietas is a nigh–untranslatable word that means great devotion and piety, the two words Lombardo uses most in his translation of the Aeneid to indicate this value. Randall Ganiban, in his introduction to the Aeneid states that "Aeneas is placed in such a difficult position because of his pietas – his duty towards his family, state, and the gods (Ganiban, p.15)." Aeneas struggles to balance his sense of duty towards all three and the fact that despite his immortal parentage, he is simply a human man with the weight of the world on his shoulders. He possesses an almost supernatural sense of duty, which is why it is very strange that he finds some of his strongest opposition in the form of the divine. Juno, queen of the gods, violently opposes Aeneas' quest for Rome. This is marked as strange by Virgil: "That she forced a man of faultless devotion / To endure so much hardship" (Aen. 1.14–15, Lombardo). Aeneas is known throughout the land for his ...

Snake Metaphor In The Aeneid Throughout Virgil's Aeneid, there are characters such as Anchises, Creusa, and Dido, whose deaths are relatable to the deaths of heroes in works the audience would be familiar with such as the Odyssey, the Iliad, and The Oresteia. However, Priam's death differs as being relatable to the deaths of other heroes and by Virgil's over–dramatization of Priam's death through incorporating a snake metaphor as well as with the excessive abuse Priam faced on his way to the altar. In other ancient literary works such as the Odyssey, the Iliad, and The Oresteia, the use of a snake references serves to indicate important plot elements. Analyzing the use of the snake metaphor surrounding Priam's death suggests that comparing the snakes between book two and book five highlight the change of fortune for the Trojans and Aeneas, on their journey to Italy. The snake metaphor present in Priam's death serves to dramatize his death. Pyrrhus, like a snake "sloughing its old skin to glisten in its newfound youth," viciously approaches Priam to murder him (Aeneid 2.590–91). By drawing a parallel between the snake, shedding its skin, to Pyrrhus, the audience can believe Pyrrhus as a much stronger, ruthless, and dangerous version of himself. One way Virgil successfully accomplishes this belief is through using the word "glisten[ing]" which symbolizes rebirth, strength, and power.

In the following lines: "I, as Aeneas, our great ancestor / Did from the flames of Troy upon his shoulder / The old Anchises bear, so from the waves of Tiber / Did I the tired Caesar." (1.2.119–122) Cassius uses allusion. Allusion is defined as an expression designed to call something to mind without mentioning it explicitly. Cassius alludes to Aeneas and Anchises, an ancient story from the Iliad in which Brutus would have been familiar. He relates the two events because Anchises was an arrogant man who bragged about his intimate relationship with Aphrodite. She punished him by having Zeus hurl a lightning bolt at his foot. Thereafter he is lame in that foot, so that Aeneas, his son, has to carry him from the flames of Troy just as Cassius carried Caesar from the rough waters of the Tiber river. ...

It is an enduring question, and one that many artists have attempted to answer throughout the centuries. Today however, the focus is on one artist (Virgil), one book (The Aeneid), and one character (Aeneas). According to Aeneas, there are two fundamental kinds of love, passionate love and pious love. With the use of fire imagery, Virgil makes references to these two forms of love. However, he makes it clear that they are very different and are not to be confused with one another.

When Aeneas recounts the story of the fall of Troy, he does so tearfully, because Troy was his home. He does, however, and the picture that follows is famous: he carries his father Anchises on his back, he holds his son Ascanius's hand, and Creusa, his wife, lags behind. Creusa is symbolic of his romantic past as she is lost in the fall of Troy. Anchises is the intellectual past, and Ascanius has the potential to mold the future Rome. Ascanius even sports a "holy" flame on his head, a sure sign of the Gods, convincing Anchises to leave burning Troy with the family. Aeneas is often referred to as pious, and therefore it makes perfect sense then that Aeneas would place his family and home at the top of the list in importance. Even though Troy is gone, Aeneas in part finds a new Troy in Italy for his family and fellow countrymen. There was more to piety than just religion, however. Piety was, after all, family first, then the state, and lastly Gods. As according to Beryl Rawson, "Pietas often focused on the reciprocal relationship between parents and children: they owed each other affection and duty. Aeneas personified this, in his relationships with father Anchises and son Ascanius." There are several mentions of fire and flame imagery, of course. It'd be absurd not to notice.

  • 48. Greek God Research Paper Christianity and Greek mythology show both remarkable similarities and differences. Consequently, much of what we know about both religions is through the gods' use of prophets. Amos is a prophet of the Christian god, Yahweh. Likewise, Anchises is a Greek prophet of the multiple gods of Greek mythology. Amos tells about consequences of sin, justice, God's all–powerfulness and The Day of the Lord. God uses Amos to tell his people that Israel will be judged for the sins they have committed. Amos does not question the job God has imposed upon him. Instead, when God shows himself to Amos and tells him to "prophesy to my people in Israel" (Amos 7:15), Amos follows God's instructions without hesitation. Instead of translating God's message, Amos ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ... Amos tells of a single god, indicating a monotheistic religion. God, named Yahweh, is all knowing, absolute, eternal, singular, above all beings and demands obedience from his people. God is able to rule over the people by instilling fear in them and showing consequences to mal–action. Contrarily, Anchises interacts with multiple gods and goddesses, presenting a polytheistic religion. Some gods are righteous and others are wicked. Unlike Yahweh to Amos, Anchises gods do not always speak directly to him. Anchises must interpret the omens that he is sent. The Greek gods are depicted as more human–like than Yahweh. Additionally, Christianity is depicted as a very serious religion. God determines where your soul will reside for the rest of eternity by your actions on earth. By choosing to follow God's words, a person can decide their own eternal fate. Greek mythology does not deal with life and the afterlife in the same way. Seen in The Aeneid, the gods are not there to doom you for eternity, but to help fulfill your destiny. Also, the dead are not condemned to heaven or hell. The dead can potentially interact with humans on earth, if they are acting for the gods. Both religions do believe in the after life, but regard the severity of earthly decisions very differently. Another difference we can conclude from the men's interactions is the role of prayer. In Christianity, prayer is a personal and singular act. God comes only to Amos to talk; he does not talk to all of Israel. The Greek gods, on the other hand, send signs and great omens to denote their presence. The last similarity that can be assumed from their interactions is the superiority of males to females.

  • 50. The Roman Manifest Destiny? Essay The Roman Manifest Destiny As a work written by a Roman about the Romans, The Aeneid is the product of the Roman perspective. It reveals what the Romans thought themselves to be, and describes where and what the Romans believed they should be. This is shown in the text through vaticinium ex eventu, prophecies describing events the author already has knowledge of. In The Aeneid, these prophecies are respected as destiny by both man and gods, and even when either attempts to contradict them, they immutably fail. The Romans not only desired to be the masters of the world 's peoples, they believed they were destined and obligated to. In writing their own destiny, the Romans envisioned their ultimate success, but not without realistically predicting pain and grief along their path. When Anchises grants Aeneas a glimpse of the Trojans ' fate, he also describes the Roman view of their Manifest Destiny: their justified and inevitable expansion in spite of individual loss. One of the ways the Romans justified their Manifest Destiny was by viewing it as an obligation to the gods, rather than as a selfish desire. After describing the virtues of other peoples, Anchises reminds Aeneas of this duty: "Roman, remember, rule with all your power, the peoples of the earth" (6.981–2).

In the Aeneid, Virgil asserts the importance of one's commitment to duty, and this assertion reveals that ancient Romans valued and admired one's commitment to duty above all other character traits.

Aeneas is forced to explain his reasoning to Dido and sets off to continue on his journey to found Rome. Aeneas' father Anchises passes away before Aeneas and his crew land in Carthage. This loss represents the beginning of a transformational period in Aeneas's life. A served as his mentor, and Aeneas was now forced to adapt in order to guide his people.

During that period Augustus, the emperor, introduced several reforms. His rule had an immeasurable effect on literature. The purpose of which was to revive traditional Roman religion in the state. Therefore, it is evident that he must have had some biblical influences around him while writing the Aeneid. First, we can see his influences come into play by what he writes in book two. It is seen in multiple places in the book where a sacrifice is made. In the Aeneid, sacrifices are mainly made in an attempt to receive help or a blessing from the gods. But the gods on Mount Olympus do not require a great sense of moral values. They will just send help in return for a sacrifice or at the very least, a prayer. However, in the Bible sacrifices are made to atone for one's sins. Also, sacrifices in the Bible are animals, and not people (excluding Abraham and Isaac because in the end he was not actually sacrificed). One of the first main, human sacrifices we see is in book two with Sinon. Sinon was a Greek spy who was captured by the Trojans. They questioned him extensively, and even tortured him for information. He claimed that Odysseus sought to sacrifice him.

In Virgil's Aeneid these gods function in epic as literary vehicles and as characters no less detailed and individual than the people in the poem. In this world where the mortal and the supernatural not only coexist but interweave with one another, the Aeneid follows the mortal Trojans as their world moves from war to peace and as they attempt, often unsuccessfully, to overcome the supernatural obstacles put in their path.

On many occasions, Virgil almost seems to be simply showing off as he shows how the divine elements can be deadly, terrifying but often beautiful too.

Sallust provides an example of this selfishness that Catiline displays a "covetous of others' possessions, he was prodigal of his own; he was violent in his passions. He possessed a certain amount of eloquence, but little discretion. His disordered mind ever craved the monstrous, incredible, gigantic" (5.4–5). Instead of acting for the best of the whole state, Catiline is greedy for what others have as well as spending his own wealth in a reckless and extravagant manner. Sallust goes on to hint that it would be somewhat more acceptable if Catiline were trying to hide his unacceptable behavior and actions but instead his conspicuous manner makes his actions that much worse and unacceptable.

In addition, Virgil's use of the traditional solidifies his later ambiguous portrayal of Aeneas's exit as just another quirk of Virgil's personal vision, thereby affecting the overall Aeneid entirely following Aeneas's meeting with Anchises.

Man's body is of earth–evil and mortal; the soul is of the divine upper aether–pure and immortal" (Lenardon, 324).

Complications In The Homeric Hymn To Apollo And Aphrodite Both homeric hymns to Apollo and Aphrodite feature classic mythology that explains various situations between the god and goddess and the mortals. In particular how each god and goddess eludes mortals into behavior that both favors each party and a has negative consequences. Apollo and Aphrodite have similarities and differences in which they manipulate the humans in the stories that lead to very different outcomes. A similarity between the manipulation on apollo's and aphrodite's part is that they each have a clear motive before there actions begin and some differences are that they have very different intentions and methods of the manipulation. A Similarity of both Apollo and Aphrodite manipulation is the revelations of the motives are revealed before their actions take place. In the first Homeric Hymn to Aphrodite, the story describes the beautiful, virgin goddess who falls in love with the mortal, Anchises. Aphrodite eludes the most powerful Greek god Zeus and in retaliation, Zeus forces aphrodite to have sex with a mortal. Aphrodite intentions are made clear before any actions take place and is described, "And when she saw him, Aphrodite, lover of laughter, she loved him, and a terrifying desire seized her heart" (Aphrodite 87–88). Comparing this hymn to the second Homeric Hymn to apollo, the story has similarities. For example, Apollo also reveals his intentions before manipulating the cretan Sailors, "Apollo thought over in his heart who the priests should be that he would bring in to serve him in rocky Pytho. And while he was thinking about it, he spotted a fast ship on the wine–sea," (Pythian 173). He describes the ship to be the one carrying the sailors and how he decided to make them his priests for his temple in Pytho. This is just one example of how Apollo and Aphrodite manage the situation between them and the mortals. In contrast, both Apollo and Aphrodite approach their situation differently.
