"This is not the workof mortal hands or skillful art; my crafthas not saved you, Aeneas: here there isa greater one - a god- who sends you backto greater labors."Virgil, 1926 line 575-9
The author uses Homeric quote to acknowledge gods power. And according to him, god`s power supersedes the mortal hands. He therefore compares human works to that of the god`s in order to enable people see the omniscient and supernatural power associated with gods.
"Both wife and sister to me, and much loved,as you supposed (your judgment is not wrong),the power of Troy has been sustained by Venus,not by the fighting men's keen hands in battle,not by their stubborn souls, patient in battle."Virgil, 1926 line 834-8
