Thesis:
In Virgil’s The Aeneid, the Gods and Goddesses play a vital role in determining the destiny of mortals, including the protagonist Aeneas.
Love and war are two potent elements that can be incorporated into a narrative. Combined with the presence of gods and goddesses, this story becomes my favorite of the works we have read so far together as a class. Love and war are two potent elements that can be incorporated into a narrative. My objective is to gain a more in-depth comprehension of the conditions that gave rise to the gods and goddesses playing a role in the lives of humans, as well as the motivations that drive them to do so with such zeal to have a better grasp on the circumstances that led to their involvement.
