“Tell me, Muse, how it all began. Why was Juno so outraged?” This famous quote happens within the first page of the Aeneid and will be the first of many times the Gods appear and interfere during Aeneas’s story. Without the Gods adjusting events to their liking or showing up to the characters and guiding them on what to do in a particular situation, Aeneas’s tale and journey would have been significantly different. This paper will argue that Virgil’s Aeneid presents the Gods as a vital and irreplaceable role within Aeneas’s story.

Epic verse is one of the most punctual types of writing started as an oral portrayal depicting a progression of legendary or historic occasions. Inevitably, these stories were composed down and read so anyone might hear to an audience.

The epic poem “Aeneid” and was created by great poet Vergil during the reign of Emperor Augustus. Like other leaders, Augustus used from these poets to spread the Roman ideology around the Empire, and within this Roman culture, and lifestyle was dictated to whole nation (Stearns, 2011, p. 152). Additionally, for centuries Virgil himself had an irrefutable impact on Romanization process because his manuscripts were used as the textbooks in Roman schools to teach the Roman culture, especially Roman language for a long period of time. Thus, as we see Romans also benefited from literature in the education system, and they used this kind of tactics to manipulate whole Rome. As the support of this point we should look the great Roman historian Tacitus’ words: “Agricola was also thoughtful to provide a liberal education for the sons of the chieftains…and his efforts gave successive result, those who were against the Latin language now became the fluent speakers” (Agricola, 21).
The points the author made, he made well, in a way that you could clearly understand what he was saying, that is for the majority of the time. He was very organized in writing and in research.

If one did not know that Maimonides was the name of a man, Abraham Joshua Heschel wrote, one would assume it was the name of a university. The writings and achievements of this twelfthcentury Jewish sage seem to cover an impossibly large number of activities. Maimonides was the first person to write a systematic code of all Jewish law, the Mishneh Torah; he produced one of the great philosophic statements of Judaism, The Guide to the Perplexed; published a commentary on the entire Mishna; served as physician to the sultan of Egypt; wrote numerous books on medicine; and, in his "spare time," served as leader of Cairo 's Jewish community. It is hardly surprising that when Shmuel ibn Tibbon, the Hebrew translator of The Guide to the Perplexed

He wrote down his oppositions of Britain’s governing of the colonies. He impressed George Washington so much with, not just his combat skills, but, his skills with the pen that he made Hamilton his writing correspondent during the American Revolution war.
