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). Another example would be on pg. 39 in the article “About Beowulf”, he was described as a young warrior of great strength and courage” fighting off Grendel, a “bloodthirsty foe”.
In December of 1776, Thomas Paine rose before the colonists and strove to sway them to form a militia (DeStefano). Paine knew that America needed their independence and he would stop at nothing to convince all others likewise. “Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph” (Paine). This quote, from Crisis No. 1 by Thomas Paine, is just one piece of the numerable persuasive techniques he uses throughout his speech.
The article titled "Julius Caesar" was once written by William Shakespeare in 1599 which spoke the tragic story of Julius Caesar, an ordinary man whom was rising to the top to become a king who life suddenly took an unpredicted turn.

Sarimento attempts to describe Facundo as a villainous outlaw, but moves Facundo character description from being a brutal tyrant to an honest and intellectual ruler. In “A Portrait of Facundo” towards the end of the fifth paragraph he proclaims “He substituted terror for patriotism and self-sacrifice” this entails that Facundo no longer was evil but patriotic and self-discerning. Also Sarimento allows the readers opinion to change. After the seventh paragraph Sarimento provides ab abundant amount of examples to Facundo’s wit. In one way Sarimento presents Facundo giving orders to whip a gaucho because he believes the gaucho is lying about thiefing “ The lashes extorted from the gaucho the confession that he had stolen a yoke of oxen” This
Henry’s use of rhetorical devices as means of persuasion were the key aspects of his speech and helped convince the colonists to fight back. 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. His use of neutral wording encourages the audience to hear him out through the rest of the speech. By acknowledging that there are other sides to this argument, the delegates are more inclined to hear him out after he says this quotation: “...of the very worthy gentlemen who have just addressed the House”(Henry).
Shakespeare is known for metaphors and intense figurative language and this play is no different. 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.
In the script Twelfth Night by Shakespeare one of the characters named Antonio is seen as a very kind, loyal and generous man. The first sign of this is when Antonio says “The gentleness of all the gods go with thee! I have many enemies in Orsino’s court, else would I very shortly see thee there. But, come what may, I do adore thee so that danger shall seem sport, and I will go.” (Act 2, Scene 1, Line 40). He’s saying that he hopes for the best for Sebastian and because he has so many enemies in Orsino’s court he’s not able to go with him.
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.
