The first 11 lines of Book I of the Aeneid lay out the fundamental themes of the poem to come. In it, the narrator addresses Aeneas' trials, his status as a veteran and wanderer and his destiny as the father of the Roman race. Juno is named as the agent responsible for his trials, on account of her "unforgetting anger". In a well-reasoned essay, explain whether the narrator's (and, we assume, Vergil's) voice is one that displays a healthy and reverent respect for the gods or an anxious despair about the terrible and absolute power of divine figures.
