Thane Of Cawdor Hail To Thee Thane
1,110 wordsMany people rely on appearance to make a judgment. Never judge a book by its cover. Judging a book by its cover will lead to disappointment. In the play, Macbeth, there are many victims to appearance. Duncan believed his nobles are loyal but in reality, they were scheming against him, Malcolm had made himself appear like a bad person to Macduff, but in reality he is the opposite, a good trusting man, and the last victim to judgment is Macbeth, who trusted the witches but they tricked him, in the...

King Of England Back To England
2,626 wordsFor the English people, King Cnut's reign from 1017 to 1035 was much like the month of March, in like a lion and out like a lamb. 1 Crowned in the turmoil of war and conquest, Cnut quickly established an era of peace and prosperity.
