However, it soon dawns on him that war is brutal and jeopardous, somewhat contradictory to what he visualizes before. The soldier’s wound, the corpses and the flag symbolize Henry’s most wide-eyed innervations, the cruelty of the war as well as Henry’s maturity. The wound, without a doubt, is the most far-reaching symbol of the story. To Henry, wounds are “ a red badge of courage”, it represents the soldier dignity and offers one with great renown.

For one thing, Marlantes says that soldiers achieve a sense of transcendence through fighting by becoming part of something bigger than themselves. He says, “There is a deep savage joy in destruction, a joy that goes beyond ego enhancement”. Now, today’s soldiers rarely fight for food or mates, but they do fight for each other. Moreover, fighting is exciting to humans. It gets the adrenaline pumping.
„He comes from the grave, his body a home of worms and filth. No life in his eyes, no warmth of his skin, no beating of his breast. His soul, as empty and dark as the night sky. He laughs at the blade, spits at the arrow, for they will not harm his flesh. For eternity, he will walk the earth, smelling the sweet blood of the living, feasting upon the bones of the damned.
Ancient Rome is recognized for strength in war and battles, so the ideal citizen would be strong and willing to fight. Hunt explains that in Rome “one man’s loss was another man’s gain” (177). The culture of Ancient Rome was aggressive, as the men were trained to fight and be devoted to their country. “Male elites had to be on guard to defend against and avenge any slights to their personal, family, and state honor” (Hunt 177). In The Aeneid, Virgil writes “Roman, remember by your strength to rule //
The first ring contains those who were violent against their neighbors. The punishment of those within the first ring is swimming in a boiling stream of blood. This boiling stream of blood symbolizes all the blood shed they caused during their lives. The second ring contains those violent against themselves, here their punishment is being encased in thorny trees and being eaten by harpies. Becoming a thorny tree represents how they were harmful to themselves and the harpies symbolize the violence they created towards themselves.
The ancient Mesopotamians believed that god and statue were transposable and in the event that a statue was irreparably damaged, the god was believed to be dead and mourning would commence soon thereafter. The “death” of a god was a devastating occurrence for a city as it implied that the god would no longer be around to protect them, leaving them susceptible to all kinds of tragedy and
Preventive and preemptive war in Utopia, Book II. When we saw the title of the chapter for the first time, we thought that it would deal with how Utopians prevent war, but what More is trying to say goes far away from this. In fact, the chapter is a detailed exposition of casus belli, military strategies and techniques. The meaning of Utopia is connected to America’s discovery, the world that serves as the location of fictional presentations of political ideas. At the same time, “this production means for the author to express genuine and real political views about his own circumstances” (pp. 57, The Ethics of Foreign Policy).
Girls learned their strict gender roles from their mothers, and a book called The Primer ultimately outlined what actions were good and bad for them to do. The girls were expected to do everything that the adult women did at the age of thirteen. This was possible because the women did not get any sort of education, they were expected to stay home and maintain order by taking care of the children, buying and preparing food, directing the servants or slaves, and they did most of the chores. The women were also expected to pass faith down to their children and to be obedient to her father or her husband. Before being married, the women were to be subordinate to their father; likewise, when she was married, her identity and property was transferred to her husband.
The mask which concealed the visage was made so nearly to resemble the countenance of a stiffened corpse that the closest scrutiny must have had difficulty in detecting the cheat. And yet all this might have been endured, if not approved, by the mad revellers around. But the mummer had gone so far as to assume the type of the Red Death. His vesture was dabbled in blood --and his broad brow, with all the features of the face, was besprinkled with the scarlet
Marcus Porcius Cato who was also known as Cato the Elder, was a military tribune in the Second Punic War. He is called "The Elder" to not be confused with his great grandson, Cato the Younger. Cato was born as a Plebian, but had a drive to climb up to the top of Rome's highest offices (McKay, John P.) His main goal was to restore old virtues of Rome that had been lost and forgotten. Cato grew up to be a brilliant leader because of his war skills, humbleness, and political skills.
Research Question: How did the economic methods that were continuous throughout the future used by classical societies from 600 B.C.E.- 600 C.E. develop commerce in the societies and help them create prosperous empires? The Rise of Towns and Manufacturing in Indian society: 600 B.C.E.

In his Germania, Tacitus describes the lands and peoples of Germany. He sometimes praises them, sometimes derides them, but often he writes with an air of casual indifference. Since Tacitus was a Roman, and he wrote the Germania for other Romans, the reader can get a glimpse of Roman society at the time through analysis of Tacitus’s word choice and tone. While Tacitus covers many facets of Germanic culture, he particularly highlights their customs in battle and rather ethical domestic lifestyle, while disparaging their seemingly inherent lazy nature and tendency to fall into drunkenness. In this, the reader learns what values the Romans of the day - or at least Tacitus himself - held in high esteem.
Foreign Invaders caused quite a ruckus in the Roman Empire. It was too large of an empire to be protected, and natural borders weren't doing them much justice. There weren't enough legionnaires to guard frontier boundaries, likewise, the legions weakened. The legionnaires were so concerned with their salaries and control of the throne, they lost focus of their job: to protect Rome. Germanic tribes began to invade Rome and they hit their weak spot.
