An example of a stereotypic character traits being displayed in the influence of medieval romantic literature on modern films would be, as stated in Sir Thomas Malory’s Le Morte d’ Arthur, “come on fiercely and slay the traitor” Mordred, for I in no wise trust him”(187). This example represents the stereotypic traits of a King because it shows how kings are looked at to be honorable and his people respected that. The people of England would do anything their King asked which is a common stereotype in modern films such as “Braveheart” (Giles, par 3).

Thomas Paine utilizes pathos during the duration of Crisis No. 1 to make the colonists yearn for their freedom and persuade them to wage war with Britain.

During the speech, Henry immediately has the brilliant idea to appeal to the delegates that are still against going to war with Britain. Patrick Henry flatters his audience as he begins his speech.

Wolsey angrily spouts at the court, “And when he thinks, good easy man, full surely His greatness is a-ripening, nips his root” (lines 7-8). Shakespeare uses a metaphor here to portray how Wolsey views himself. It gives an insight to the haughtiness of Wolsey’s character. The comparison to a plant that was close to ripening, shows that Wolsey believes that he was on his way to greatness. The second part, where Wolsey compares the court’s actions to nipping the root, shows that he is upset at the dismissal and believes the world is against him.

But, come what may, I do adore thee so that danger shall seem sport, and I will go.” (Act 2, Scene 1, Line 40).
By pretending to be another person, Kent can serve King Lear, as he says, “If thou canst serve where thou dost stand condemn'd, / So may it come, thy master, whom thou lovest, / Shall find thee full of labours” (Shakespeare 1.4.5-7). His lies have good ends- to protect the King whom he loves and intends to serve as long as he lives. Similarly, the Fool uses his job as a veneer for telling the truth. He asks the King “why a snail has a / house” and answers his question, “Why, to put 's head in, not to give it away to his / daughters and leave his horns without a case” (Shakespeare 1.5.27-31). The Fool compares Lear to a snail that has made the horrible mistake of trusting Goneril and Regan and giving his kingdom to them.

Modern heroes have not changed. As I was comparing Beowulf and Superman, I realized that they had a lot of similarities. Beowulf and Superman were brave and courageous heroes. They were both strong. These heroes were well liked.
This essay is a comparison between Beowulf and a modern day hero of my choice. I could not think of a specific person to call my hero so I decided to go with any American soldier.
