King Arthur - 500 words
The uglier the truth the truer the friend is a statement that has been echoed throughout the history of time. In "Camelot", King Arthur experienced this quotation first hand. Even though "Camelot" is a fictional movie, the same situation that befell King Arthur really occurs Just by looking at Pellinore, you would not think that he was a trustworthy man. Dirty, hair uncombed, dingy clothes are all words that could be used to describe Pellinore's appearance. But as the old saying goes "Don't judge a book by its cover" and you should not judge Pellinore by his looks. King Arthur had so many "Yes men" in his court, that he could not depend on them to tell him the truth because they were to worr ...

It is believed by many scholars who have long studied the Arthurian legend that Camelot and the others were real in a sense at some point in time, and over the last 500 years their actual deeds developed into the legendary tales that a ...

Macbeth Vs Lord Of The Flies - 1,043 words
History has shown lifes mercilessness with the strongest surviving. In this game of survival, dishonorable tactics are used to climb the ladder swiftly with aspirations of attaining the pinnacle of power. Honesty and morals must be a mere memory if personal profits are to be achieved at a rapid pace.

Falstaff + Hotspur = Prince Hal: Their Actions On The Battlefield - 1,104 words
Sir John Falstaff has a number of functions in 1 Henry IV, the most obvious as a clownish figure providing comic relief. His many lies and exaggerations entertain because of the wit and cleverness he employs to save himself from paying debts and answering for crimes. He in many ways represents an everyman--a sinner with little shame or honor, who nonetheless maintains at least an outward concern for honor and appearances. 'If sack and sugar be a fault, God help the wicked! If to be old and merry be a sin, then many an old host that I know is damn'd. . . . [Banish the others] but for sweet Jack Falstaff, kind Jack Falstaff, true Jack Falstaff, valiant Jack Falstaff . . . banish plump Jack, an ...

Hamlet, Laertes And Fortinbras - 1,130 words
Hamlet, Fortinbras and Leartes are all very different people with different lives, but as these men interact in the play we learn that there are many circumstances surrounding them that mysteriously connect them. All three of these characters had some reason to avenge some circumstance in their life, but they all had a very different way of conquering the object of their hatred. Fortinbras Fortinbras had levied an army to attack and conquer Denmark. Though son of the late King of Norway, the crown of Norway had gone to his uncle, just as the crown of Denmark had gone to Hamlet's uncle. This shows that in the world of the play it was not unusual for brothers to late kings to be elected to the ...

Macbeth's Manipulation - 936 words
When we first hear about Macbeth from the sergeants report, we are led to believe that he is very much a person who does only what he believes is right. Furthermore, when he first appears in the play, his fellow nobleman, Banquo, accompanies him. Given this, we would think that he does what is right, and makes all his own decisions. However this belief is proven wrong. Although Macbeth starts off as a loyal subject of Duncan, he is ambitious and this is a weakness, which allows him to be manipulated by a few factors in the play. From the beginning of act 1 scene 5 till the murder of Duncan in act 2 scene 2, it is evident that Lady Macbeth manipulates and convinces Macbeth into murdering Dunc ...

... and prestige, More argued for communal property rather than private property. If private properties were eliminated and all were made equal citizens, competition would cease as there would be no scope for [inequalities and injustices] in such a society (80). If all persons were set equal than corrupt rulers would also be an improbability, for one cannot subvert or overpower one who is on equal footing with oneself. He contended that human nature is itself good and should be a unifying force among persons throughout the world; a morality is inherent within man which if not corrupted by society and poor laws is a law unto itself which can preserve order, and promote justice and equality ( ...

The Fall Of Hektor In The Illiad - 1,086 words
A big question that on everyones mind while reading the Iliad is: Who is the real hero of the epic? There are so many possibilities and yet each of those characters has one sort of fault or another. I believe that Hektor is the real hero of the Iliad. He is the one character that stands out, to me, and shows qualities of being noble, wise and a true friend. Unfortunately heroes have their mistakes and downfall. I am here to explain why Hektor is one of the heros but not the main hero. He cannot be the main hero because of his errors, his downfall that lead to his death. Hektor is the prince of Troy and son of Priam and Hekuba. He is the unquestionable commander of all the Trojan and allied f ...
