...Aeneid. If we are to analyze why Aeneas never wavered in his trust in his destiny, we have to acknowledge that in the story, he was to found the city of Rome where other Trojan survivors were to build and start a new life once again. Knowing this, we can find the source of Aeneas persistent adherence to his destiny from his concern of the welfare of the collective and fraternal love. Love and loyalty was characteristic of Aeneas and other Trojans. Thus, he had no room for doubt because if he did so, he places all of his comrades to uncertainty. (Otis, 1964; Heinze, 1993) We...

Many Medieval texts, such as Everyman and The Canterbury Tales can also be examined to learn about the values of the times. The classical hero and medieval pilgrim, however, are vastly contrasting in their values. Through the examination of fictional and historical figures from both of these eras, we can discern that the hero figures were conquerors, usually seeking their own glory and gain, while the life of a medieval pilgrim tended to be self-sacrificing in the pursuit of worshipping and honoring God... /Roman/Texts/Plutarch/Lives/Alexander*/3.html> Thucydides, “Pericles’...
