VITAL DESTINIES

***

Aeneas, Dante

Both have vital destinies

So hard to achieve

***

NOTE: Aeneas’ destiny is to lead the surviving Trojans to Italy, where they will become important ancestors of the Romans. He succeeded in achieving his destiny, despite much difficulty. Dante’s hard-to-achieve destiny is writing The Divine Comedy.
