Cupid falls short of his undirected mind, and is passionately in love with psyche, and psyche is more responsive and devoted to Cupid without doubt (Apuleius and Kenney). The passionate love in psyche is not mad, but is shown to be calculative, of divine qualities, and unafraid of the consequences, whatever they may be, thus despising death. Venus, getting annoyed over her declining popularity, orders her to perform three tasks. These tasks were set up by Venus to have psyche fail and let her be alone without cupid. The love depicted in this narrative is heavenly and of divine qualities, as psyche goes to all extents of embracing danger to fulfil the tasks, all in anticipation of being eternally united with cupid. Psyche wins all tasks, undergoing life-risking attempts, indicating the divineness with which she loved, though being herself a mortal. She could get through the difficult tasks only because of her denial to subjugate blindly to Eros and have it enacted through her actions.
She instead made it a challenge and accepted all calls as fate and managed to conquer them all with her sheer will. This will come from nothing else, but her intensity and belief in her love for cupid that she was certain of winning and failure or fate losing.Virgil shows Eros as one which is to be shunned and rejected on an outright basis, because of the tragic ends that it generates, leaving lovers to be disunited for ever. Eros is to be rejected to avoid the destructive outcome, and thus it is projected as a destructive feeling or aspect of life. Ovid, through many tales, reflects the impact of Eros on the female psyche where it not only destroys the lovers, but also being the sole reason for such a fate. Ovid considers Eros as a cosmic force connecting people, while Virgil takes it as a distraction in one’s duty. Apuleius is the only one who considers its divine qualities which he articulately depicts in the tale of Cupid and Psyche. Psyche wins because of her unwavering belief in Eros.
