...Augustus himself, and that the political character of Aeneid signified the final politicization of heroic epics that began with Alexander’s appropriation of image of Achilles (Quint, 1993, p. 8). The second source, Virgil's gaze: Nation and poetry in the Aeneid, authored by Reed (2007), explores Aeneid from the standpoint of its character as a form of Roman foundational myth, itself appropriated from Hellenistic culture. Reed (2007) argues that Aeneid aimed at creating an image of coherent Roman national identity, which was achieved through organization of mythological ‘facts’ within an ethnic ideological framework (p. 1).

This was done to challenge the humankind, to show that the wild and brute can care and demonstrate love as well. The metaphor is used to make humankind think of...
