    The Aeneid Courtesy of Sparknotes: Study Questions 1. How negatively does Aeneas’s abandonment of Dido reflect on his character? Though Aeneas cannot resist the will of the gods or fate, which demands that he leave Carthage, the manner in which he leaves Dido is not beyond contempt. We know from other passages that Aeneas is not a character without compassion, yet if Aeneas feels genuine sympathy for the lover he is about to abandon, he fails to express it well. He speaks formally and...

    One of the Aeneid's main themes is that for both gods and mortals, fate always wins in the end. The direction and destination of Aeneas's course are preordained, and his various sufferings and glories in battle and at sea over the course of the epic merely postpone this unchangeable destiny. Aeneas is destined to settle in Italy, and not even the unbridled wrath of Juno can prevent this outcome. Jupiter, whose unalterable will is closely identified with fate because he is the highest of the...
