...Aeneid differs from the preceding epics Iliad and Odyssey of Homer in the sense that the epic hero Aeneas is a god-fearing man whose exploits are motivated by his desire to help others rather by his personal need and interest. Whether the plot of Aeneid is driven more by the gods or by human characters is quite a tough issue to address. Moreover, could Aeneas have willed it to Italy or was forced by the gods and the circumstances around him is another difficult thing to prove. However, it appears that the epic has given us enough hints that Aeneas has the will to pursue his mission as well as that the gods also play a vital role...

During the Homeric times, a hero was one who possessed divine powers, fame, honor and one who killed many people through war.

After escaping Troy, as it was eventually razed to the ground by the Greeks, Aeneas fled with his family to Italy to start anew. Even when he is leaving Troy, Aeneas is projected as an epitome of filial piety as he carries his frail father on his back and escorts him to safety.
