    Virgil’s goal in fleshing out Aeneas’ character was to create a new kind of hero for a new Roman age—one that could hold his own on the battlefield, but is also an all-around good man. Do you believe that Aeneas as he is presented in the Aeneid is a “good man”? Should we answer this question based solely on what it meant to be good in Virgil’s time, or is the answer the same no matter what standards you use?
