In addition to the romantic love that Spencer and the Redcrosse Knight invent, one also must consider the love for faith and God. Throughout the book, most of the problems that Spencer and the Redcrosse night with inventing love stem from the fact that they are doing it in a physical sense.

She proceeded to give England 45 years of strong government, moderate religious policies, and unexplained prosperity. Elizabeth was ...

Queen Victoria - 783 words
Queen Victoria was one of the greatest women ever to sit on the throne of England. Her long reign lasted from 1837 to 1901. Her efforts during these years changed England very much. Ironically, Queen Victoria was never meant to reign England. Her seat on the throne came about in an unusual way. After the death of Queen Victoria's uncle, King George IV, the throne was meant to be passed on to one of George III's grandchildren. However, no one in the royal family had given birth to any legitimate children except for the Duke of Kent, Victoria's father. So at the age of 18, Victoria, daughter of Duke Edward of Kent, became Queen Victoria of England. This was due to a distant relation to the Que ...

Queen Elizabeth I - 727 words
Elizabeth I was born in 1533 to Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn. Although she entertained many marriage proposals and flirted incessantly, she never married or had children. Elizabeth, the last of the Tudors, died at seventy years of age after a very successful forty-four year reign. Elizabeth inherited a tattered realm: dissension between Catholics and Protestants tore at the very foundation of society; the royal treasury had been bled dry by Mary and her advisors, Mary's loss of Calais left England with no continental possessions for the first time since the arrival of the Normans in 1066 and many (mainly Catholics) doubted Elizabeth's claim to the throne. Continental affairs added to the probl ...

Macbeth Is A Butcher And Lady Macbeth Is A Fiend-like Queen - 1,488 words
In Shakespeares tragedy Macbeth, the following statement can be applied, Macbeth is a butcher and Lady Macbeth is a fiend-like queen. This is a true statement as many occurrences involving Macbeth and Lady Macbeth portray them in this way. A butcher can be defined as someone who kills or has people killed needlessly or brutally. The term butcher used in this way describes Macbeth to some extent. During the play, Macbeth is involved in the murder of many people, including King Duncan, Banquo, and Macduffs wife and children. A fiend can be described as a very wicked or cruel person, or one who causes mischief and annoyance. This can be applied to Lady Macbeth, who had only her own intentions a ...

The Macbeths - "this Dead Butcher And His Fiend-like Queen" - 1,039 words
H2>"this dead butcher and his fiend-like queen". Is this a fair comment on the characters of the Macbeths? Malcolm said this. There is bias. Macbeth kills his father Duncan. Malcolm should be king instead of Macbeth. Macbeth seizes power by force. Also, Macbeth brings chaos and destruction to Scotland (his homeland). Therefore, Malcolm makes a subjective comment on the Macbeths that they are "butcher" and "fiend-like queen". However, it contains some truth in it. Macbeth did murder Duncan and Banquo. In order to consolidate his power, he kills Macduff's wife and son and all the people in the Castle of Fife .At this point, he is a "butcher". For Lady Macbeth, she did persuade Macbeth to kill ...

Is Macbeth A Butcher And Lady Macbeth A Fiend Like Queen? - 683 words
Malcolm calls Macbeth a butcher, someone who kills without a conscience and without a reason. He also describes Lady Macbeth as a fiend like queen which means one with only evil in her character. Neither Macbeth nor Lady Macbeth fit these descriptions. These descriptions are too simplistic but both characters are more complex. Macbeth at the beginning of the play was not a butcher. He killed many enemies in the war but not one in cold blood. Macbeth was a highly regarded kinsman and Thane. For brave Macbeth, well he deserves that name. O valiant cousin, worthy gentleman. In the war against Norway, Macbeth presented himself as noble Macbeth, brave Macbeth and valiant cousin to King Duncan. Cl ...

Book Review Of "the Queen's Own Fool" - 721 words
I think, Majesty, that all uncles have some things in common, whether they are nobles, priests, or showmen. And what is that, my Jardinire? asked the queen. They do not like girls who talk too much. But that is exactly why I want you here, she said, lifting one finger. To talk and talk and talk as much as you please. Even if it is all nonsense? Especially then. Throw together a fool, a queen, and a lot of sneaky citizens, and what do you end up with? An amazing story that makes a book I just cant put down! Luckily for me Jane Yolen and Robert Harris decided to write it, and it is called Queens Own Fool. Queens Own Fool is a wonderful work of historical fiction. Set in the time of Mary, Queen ...

Macbeth - A Dead Butcher And His Fiend-like Queen" - 1,233 words
How accurate an analysis is this of the two main characters? Look at their development throughout the play. A dead butcher and his fiend-like queen is spoken by Malcolm on line 98 in Act 5 Scene 7 as Malcolm announces the beginning of a new reign, just after he has defeated Macbeth at his castle. Malcolm uses it to describe and sum up Macbeth and his wifes reign over Scotland. My first impression of this question after reading the book is that this is a fair representation of Macbeth and Lady Macbeth, mainly because of the atrocious murders that took place. Both characters come across as evil people and I think that this quote reflects that. By the end of the play, Macbeth has been given thi ...
