Not only did the Huns leave a lasting impression on Rome by demolishing numerous communities and constructions, but the destruction was firmly imprinted into the minds of the Romans and European history was significantly altered as well. Attila led his army in a multitude of battles, the majority of encounters situated in the Eastern and Western Empires of Rome. Most of the crusades were embarked upon without any single unified objective. The Huns could not have found any one person that surpassed Attila, in regards to his leadership abilities. His brutal, militaristic perspective in conjunction with his diplomacy produced the ideal ruler.
He thought that the veteran mercenaries were a potential threat, so he had them go to the city of Messana to attack the Campanians. While they advanced he had the rest of the army withdraw while they were slaughtered. He led the army to defeat the enemy in the plain of Mylae, capturing their leaders and ending the aggressive behavior of the Mamertines. Hiero went back to Syracruse and was seen by the allies as king. Mamertimes were defeated on their territory, so they appealed to Rome and to the Carthaginians.
In this extract from “Nineteen Eighty-Four” Orwell conveys the horrific nature of “the party’s” control over Winston and the whole of Oceania. It robs the individual of his uniqueness and humanity through various methods, generally involving violence or psychological conditioning. The passage I’ve chosen is crucial to understanding “the party’s” reasoning behind their actions, and how deluded their ideals really are. George Orwell wanted to make his point clearly, that if we allow a dictatorship and totalitarian society to form then we will be lost as a race and as individuals. Up until this moment in the novel, Winston has kept his values and beliefs from the party, and has not betrayed Julia.

This is because Louis’ personal actions that he took betrayed people and led them to disillusionment against him as they wanted to press for a trial for the king. Louis’ decision to dismiss Necker again caused a negative outcome which can be seen when the third estate stormed the Bastille in 1789. This had a huge impact on France and changed the attitudes and ideology of the people involved or who supported it. Prior to 1792 we can see how Louis’ actions showed why there was a republican emergence. One event which is significant to emphasise this was the calling of the Estate general in 1789.
Limited resources, population growth and to some extent, differing ideologies that originated from the polis states conflicting economic and socio-political concepts are elements of necessity that continuously influenced the war culture of the ancient Greek worlds. Three basic elements define war; ‘violence, legitimacy and legality’. Nieberg states that ‘all wars are violent’ and are founded on the supposition that force is required to attain a preferred goal; at times lethal force is applied. As such, war must be validated. In the antiquity of Greece war was a fundamental concept to socio-political
Humans evolved from another animal and opposing to that is like opposing to the simple mathematical equation two times two equals four. The Underground Man says that you can deny it but it still is factual. With this passage and ultimately with Darwin’s findings, humans dropped in their own previous image and thought of themselves. Dostoevsky criticizes the self-importance and base pride that humanity has, but he refuses to accept the walls of mathematics. It is in this passage that most clearly Dostoevsky’s ideals can be seen, he sees that humanity is developing in such a way that there will not be any true humanity.
Revenge, is one of the major themes that have affected not only the reader but also the story lines of innumerable books written around the world. The thirst for revenge is a massive amount of anger induced into a person by a wrong doing of another which leads the person to the other either physically or verbally assault the other. It is one such theme that has played a vital role in these two plays. Oedipus Tyrannus is by Sophocles a Greek writer and Blood Wedding a Spanish play by Federico Garcia Lorca who himself felt the swords of revenge as he was assassinated. Both Lorca and Sophocles have used revenge as a tool in their works to and construct and interpret the storyline and the characters.
Brave New World by Aldous Huxley and 1984 by George Orwell were written by men who witnessed war first hand on a global scale. Disturbed and frightened by what they saw, Huxley and Orwell both went on to write powerful pieces that illustrated their visions and fears of our future. By using carefully selected diction and imagery to illustrate their ideas, these men agreed that there would be a day when power would fall into the wrong hands, and future rulers would enslave the world to abide by their ideas and beliefs. Thus wiping out any form of democracy and voice. Great examples of this is when Orwell uses imagery to describe the Big Brother(much like Nazi Gestapo) and when Huxley uses imagery to describe the control of children and their births.
