Many people do believe in fate of destiny. That is; they consider the fact that everyone has a purpose. Similarly, the main concepts that are embraced in Aeneid’s main concepts are duty and fate. “The Aeneid” is an epically drafted context which has a legendary background of Roman Empire. However, it tells a definite story of the Trojan hero Aeneas. The Trojan hero wanders for years after the fall of Troy, and travels to Italy to battle the Latin’s, action that makes him the ancestor of the Roman Nation. Aeneas' implies the principle conflict is bound by myriad responsibilities within which the greatest is the responsibility of establishing the nationality of Rome (Martin 110). He is engulfed by the objective of safeguarding the destiny of the Romans. Ideally, the protagonist as symbolized in the major chapters of the book “The Aneneid” is faced by a controversial situation that argues against his personal destiny. Ideally, his main and unending concern is bestowed on the welfare of the Trojan people. However, he is also faced by controversial situations that deter expectations and ambitions of being a dedicated leader from his personal interests which include love.
Ideally, the major conflict that is instituted and feasibly identifiable in the book indicates the initial fate in his homeland. First, he is fated to travel out of the ruins of Troy towards (Italy) where he is expected to make the establishment of a race that will be destined to a newly founded Rome. Juno is identified to harbor vengeance feelings against the Trojans. This is one of the conflicting situations that that impede the mission that he has in his travel through an emergent incitation of the Romance situation. The Romans exists between Aeneas and Dido (Martin 175). It is believed that this creates a stampede situation where the leader, Aeneas is forced to choose between his love and his people. The Confucius situation leads to suffering of the fleet that follows him. Descriptively, Dido and Aeneas have a torrid, steamy, as well as, a passionate affair. The horridness of the love affairs facilitates the impact that befalls his men.
Duty bound Aeneas is forced to make hard decisions that are conflicting with objectives, values and objectives within different scenarios within the journey towards forming a strong Rome. One of the personal conflicting issues comes out in the event when some of the people are forced to make choices at the expense of their own happiness. A series of conflicting commences when the Trojan fleet movement towards the Eastern Mediterranean (Martin 180). The goddess name Juno does not concur with the provisional status of Paris favor towards Venus. Her conflicting between the goddess and Venus create a stumbling situation where the goddess decides to complicate the move by Aeneas to create a great Rome territory. In return, she creates a storm. She is entirely against the Trojan people.
On the other side, there are conflicting interests where enemies act in support to a certain group due to the infuriation by another. Ideally, Neptune is completely infuriated by the act of Jones intrusion into his domain. Initially, the goddess named Juno has an unnecessary wrath. First, Neptune ensured that the winds and waters were calm. However, Neptune does not do this because of the good terms that exist between her and the Trojans. However, there was a conflict of interest that happened to work at the advantage of the Trojans.
The situation of Aeneas love that hinders him from performing as expected, there occurs a situation where his mother too does not have the concurrence with him. Due to the complicated situation, Venus and his mother had different standings on Dido. However, after sometimes, the mother encourages him to embrace and gain favor of Dido, who was the Carthage. The conflicting situations were not encroached with any reliable solutions since some of the situations were out of hand.
