  • In The Once And Future King, The Portrayal Of The Middle Ages Is Conceived As That Of - 684 words
    In The Once and Future King, the portrayal of the Middle Ages is conceived as that of magnificent castles, beautiful clothing, great kings and queens- everything and everyone perfect. No proof of the dirty, unjust, horrible circumstances that all people lived by- even the nobility- existed throughout the entire novel. The people and places in The Once and Future King are so backward that the story could be described as a fairy tale. Camelot, for one, would not have been so gorgeously described, and looked upon as a majestic land. Towns back then were not pretty. Dirt thrived in cities; there were diseases and crud everywhere. Camelot was also depicted as being in order, and just to everyone. ...

  • The Once And Future King Arthurs Failure - 1,087 words
    The Once and Future King - Arthur's Failure The Once and Future King - Arthur's Failure "He was only a man who had meant well, who had been spurred along the course of thinking by an eccentric necromancer with a weakness for humanity. Justice had been his last attempt-to do nothing which was not just. But it had ended in failure" (White, OAFK 634). The"he" in this passage refers to King Arthur, the main character in T.H. White's The Once and Future King and Book of Merlyn, who failed in his attempt to unite England due to the mistakes made by him and those close to him. Arthur, betrayed by those close to him, not properly educated on the greedy, selfish, and violent heart of man, failed in h ...

  • A Holy Nation - 1,915 words
    A Holy Nation A Holy Nation After creating the world, a paradise for human kind, God is forced to banish Adam and Eve because they disobey His orders to not eat fruit from the tree of wisdom. This results ultimately in the fall of man to earth. Immediately from the beginning of his time on Earth, man chooses not to follow the path set before him by God but instead spreads evil throughout the world. Therefore, the inherent problem humans face is the pressure to judge between good and evil, the need to aspire to be like God. God's first solution to this problem was to flood the world killing everyone, but those on Noah's arch. God realizes, however, that this is not an answer to the problem th ...

  • Becoming A Knight - 1,127 words
    ... g knight had to either join one of the great military orders, such as the Knights Templars, or hire out to a richer noble as a member of his private army. As a man-at-arms, he could always hope to make his fortune by getting his share of the profit, that was sometimes won in battle. He could also hope to get money by capturing a rich noble in combat and holding him in for ransom. It is obvious that knighthood was not easy for those who were not secure financially, and those who did not have a desire to protect the weak, aid the poor, seek justice, or honor pure womanhood. A knight had to agree to live by this code during his quest in becoming a knight. The many obligations of knighthood ...

  • Best Hamlet Paper Ever - 1,882 words
    Best Hamlet Paper Ever One of the most unique things about the play Hamlet (with Hamlet playing the main character) is the way relationships between the main and lesser characters have not changed from Shakespeares time period in which he wrote this play to the modern dilemmas of today. The character Hamlet relates through individualism of self to others in the play and Shakespeare uses this confusion of self and nature thus assuring many types of readers who can relate to his Hamlet characterization. Hamlet portrays himself with all his human flaws, but it is this humanity that makes him distinctive from everyone else in the story. In addition, all of Hamlets waking hours are preoccupied wi ...

  • Chevalier - 685 words
    CHEVALIER The middle ages is the period between antiquity and the Renaissance, dated between 500 and 1500 A.D. Chivalry was the code of values for the true knight. During these times there were a great number of kingdoms and all of them needed protection, so many men became knights. The word chivalry comes from the French word for knight, chevalier, which comes from the Old French word for militia, chevalerie. Chivalry's best example is a christian knight. Roland from Roland and Arthur from The Once and Future King were good examples of this. An ideal man for the Medieval Cosmos is the Christian knight. War was one of the knight's strengths.

    Hamlet One of the most unique elements of the Hamlet character is that he is so human. Many types of readers can identify with him. Hamlet is imperfect, and he is fretful. Hamlet has human properties, and it is his humanity that I intend to explore. Indeed it is these human qualities and imperfections that make his story so tragic. Another tragic part of the play is the plays irony. Irony is an important tool in the hands of the playwright to achieve both comical and/or dramatic effect. There is usually little reason for a tragedy to be funny, so Shakespeare has used this tool to add more tragedy to the play. I will investigate the nature of this irony.

  • Hamlet Is One Of Shakespeares Most Analysed Plays The Danish Prince Is Developed Into A Mysterious And Fascinating Man A Phil - 1,390 words
    Hamlet is one of Shakespeares most analysed plays. The Danish prince is developed into a mysterious and fascinating man. A philosopher and a fencer, he is a man disgusted with the rottenness of life around him and is obligated to set things right. Under the guise of madness he attempts to achieve his ends; yet there is much to puzzle over. Was Hamlet really such a good actor that he could fool everyone into believing in his madness or was he truly mad? And, why did he wait so long to carry out his revenge? Hamlet thinks too much and this drove him to an insanity that was not feigned. "... and the devil hath power/ To assume a pleasing shape..." The ghost provides Hamlet with a dilemma. Super ...

  • Henry Iv - 1,449 words
    Henry IV One of the most important aspects of 1 Henry IV is the development and transgressions of Hal who is the Prince of Wales and heir to the throne. The play's focus on the family reminds us that the struggles England endured through its growth were largely struggles inside the royal family. Hal's character is at a point where he is unable to define who he will be; a responsible part of the monarch, as his father would like to see, or a rogue as is John Falstaff. Throughout the play the prince keeps company with Falstaff, who is indeed a knight but hardly acts as one would hope. He lies, robs travellers and frequents the bar and whorehouse owned by Mistress Quickly. By scene iv of the fi ...

  • King Arthur - 512 words
    King Arthur 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 in real life to everyday people. 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 Pellinores appearance. But as the old saying goes "Dont 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 t ...

  • King Carol Ii - 1,351 words
    King Carol Ii The country I chose for my internet project is Romania and the subject dealt with is the reign of King Carol II. In all my findings in the different web sites searched they all portrayed him as the most disputed among the four Kings of Romania. Although not a particularly good leader for Romania he played a very important part in Romania's history during a very turbulent time period. His controversial reign ultimately gave rise to a personal, corporatist dictatorship. Much of his life was caught in turmoil and his domestic life was a constant source of scandal. The oldest son of King Ferdinand I, Carol was born on October 3rd, 1893 at Sinaia, being the first Romanian King to be ...

  • Merlin - 1,112 words
    Merlin Throughout the ages Merlin has been depicted as a druid, bard, necromancer, magician and prophet. Though we may never know if any of his fictitious interpretations are truthful, we speculate he was nothing more than a Celtic bard who lived in the 500's near Solway Frith. It is said that this strange poet, going under the alias of Myrddin, was a madman and a prophet. Myrddin's claim to fame was creating so much tension between the British chieftains of his time that they fought each other in the Battle of Arderydd. After the battle Myrddin supposedly goes insane and wanders into the forest of Celidon. He is later found dead on a riverbank nearby. The mythical Merlin has a far deeper st ...
