The Sea

Its poems also they can be important in the direction of raising aspects of the life of the warlike, certainly layer richest and powerful aristocracy of the society, to who fit to take the excellent decisions in regards to the collective. To the homrica war they corresponded ideas, values and behaviors that were essentially aristocratic. The warlike activity if did not restrict looks to it to defeat enemy armies, but the one was identified closely with the aristocratic code of values that served: the war is a way in direction to prestige and the glorificao in the battlefield, attribute of the individual heroicidade that if conquest for the bravery and the honor. Not necessarily the victory, but the virile and deloused delivery that converges to the death, when if defends bravely the values and the ancestry, is not of somenos importance to grant the regozijante glory of the battle. The words of Homero reflect this form to fight, as in it teaches the aspiration to them of Heitor during the War of Troy: ' ' Shooting on it the land, they will raise a tomb on the edges of the immense Helesponto. Thus, in the future, despite distant, when the sea is crossed, it will be exclamar: ' ' There it forbids the tomb of a warrior dead long ago, of a valoroso that was died arrostando itself with the Heitor&#039 brilliant; '. Thus they will speak, and my glory never perecer' '. Thus, we perceive that the way to fight for itself suffered considerable alterations in the Archaic period, together to a series of social transformations and deep politics, not rare tumultuous and explosive. It does not have more space for individual herosmos; the glory already does not belong exclusively to the individual. The war is planned of coordinate and joint form, of form that all and each one participate in its position: ' ' If they yield is the end of the courage (aret) of todos' ' (Tirteu, I break up II, 11-14), since also the life of each one depends on its friend.
