    what does this mean?

    We have talked at length about the rage of Juno in the Aeneid. Ovid similarly bases his collection of “disastrous love affairs” in the Metamorphoses on the rage of love and desire. One could thus argue convincingly that the most influential Roman poets viewed gods and goddesses in a more pessimistic manner than their Greek counterparts. Citing one example from each writer (Virgil and Ovid), discuss what you find to be a disconcerting moment of divine irrationality

    what does the paragraph mean, in a simplest form? i've really struggling with this all day

    Romans view their gods as emotionally unstable. Take one example from Ovid and one example from Vergil that highlights the irrationality of Roman gods.
