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 in the development of the plot.Without Aeneas or without the gods' intervention, there would never be an excellent epic called Aeneid; one that would be transmitted from generation to generation and one that comes to us as a piece of inspiration, information and entertainment. Aeneid is seen as a man's journey and exploits under the divine guidance and intervention.Aeneas is one of the survivors of the Trojan War. Humanly speaking, he must have questioned his fate why he was not one of those who died. Being left behind in the ravages of war and being summoned to leave and look for Latium and to found another country is a tall order for him. He must have missed his wife, his father, his family and friends. His mourning may have also increased with depression, for the Troy lies in ruins and hopelessness and that destruction abound everywhere. However, his deep sense of responsibility and accountability must have weighed greater, for he, along with the remnants of war, set out to seek for the unknown country.His first destination, Carthage, became his first and one of his greatest tests.
