english hs aeneid question
posted by jake .
can someone tell me the reason why Aphrodite and Hera were feuding? was it because they didn't want Aeneas to make to Italy?
Aphrodite and Hera often feud because Aphrodite is the symbol of love and Hera is the symbol of war. In mythology they often used to portray conflict.
so they fought in Aeneid because they always do?
... and because Vergil wrote this to emphasize a connection between the classical Greek culture and the new Roman culture.
