Umm,Virgil wrote this piece because he was ordered to by Imperator Augustus/Octavius Caesar

Although I have only started to read the Aeneid in college, I have to admit this is the the second piece of literature I have come across as being emotional and moving. Although Virgil was not really writing to honour the Romans, I personally feel that he felt emotional anguish, which has been realted in his word in the Aeneid. We may never know why Virgil wrote such an eccentric piece, but it still makes men cry today, and feel empathy towards the purpose of his writing a piece.
