In this case both definitions are applicable; one to each story. 5In Lanval this evil is shown through Queen Guenevere when she offers herself to Lanval despite her being married to King Henry and Lanval being a knight in service of King Henry (lines 261-274); she attempts and fails to corrupt him but her intent is still there. Lanval however politely refuses her because this would obviously be treason and his heart is already taken so he won’t betray his king nor his love. When this happens the Queen gets angry and lies to the king. She tells him that Lanval has come onto him and that when she refused him he insulted her by saying that the lowliest in his lover’s court is many times lovelier than the queen.

This holiday became known as Hanukkah which takes place in December, and is celebrated for eight days. (Kostenberger, Kellum, and Quarles, 2009, 70) Under Judas, the Jews regained religious
With the people knowing that the government, didn't want the people to know what she had done, she was hated even more (Shephard et al. 100-111). By this time the damage had been done, rumors blew up, saying that Marie had wasted 1.6 million livres on a necklace (Shephard et al. 100-111). Without the support of her people, she brought down the king's reputation, and this combined with an already unstable revolution brewing is a recipe for
In Prom Dreams and Prom Reality, Zlatunich states that, “Prom magazines define the prom as an event that requires girls to invest time and money in order to achieve success” (357). This correlates to how the most popular ideals emphasized in the magazines from the study above are about what to buy whether it is a dress, makeup, heels, or accessories. In order to achieve the perfection magazines describe of prom, the companies are able to abuse their influence to convince young girls to buy the products advertised. A common theme amongst all of the magazines in the study above is that, besides the prom dress company advertisements, products that readers are instructed to buy are not explicitly listed. For example, instead of having a list of the top ten products to buy for a hairstyle, the magazine would show multiple hairstyles and list the products needed to buy to complete the look.
Lady Macbeth reprimands Macbeth’s manhood and his courage in order to persuade Macbeth into accompanying her with the task of King Duncan’s murder. Originally, Macbeth decides against the murder and betrayal of King Duncan, however when he orders Lady Macbeth to “proceed no farther in this business” (I.vii.33), she is utterly appalled. Moreover, Lady Macbeth challenges Macbeth’s courage and calls him a coward, who would give up “the ornament of his life” (I.vii.45) due to his gutless nature. Furthermore, Lady Macbeth emasculates Macbeth in her speech, when she says, “When you durst do it, then you were a man”. Lady Macbeth claims Macbeth was a man, when he made the promise to kill King Duncan for the sake of their ambition, and now as he has
Cutting Queen Margaret seems to not be appropriate because her main role is condemning Richard and emphasizing how Richard III continues to be the villain through out the play. There are many instances through out the play that Richard deems himself the villainous character. The audience does not seem to need any more affirmation of how manipulative Richard is. In Act I Scene I, Richard and Elizabeth began arguing because Richard accused Elizabeth and her Kinsmen of hoping that Edward will die soon. As they are arguing Queen Margaret walks into the scene where Richard and Elizabeth arguing and, out of bitterness, she decides to express her discontent.
The quote ‘thou wouldst be great, art not without ambition, but without the illness should attend it ' demonstrates how Lady Macbeth takes advantage over her husband 's lack of courage and ambition to manipulate him into thinking that his not man enough and has to prove himself as a man to her. This is significant as Macbeth was known by the whole kingdom to being a brave and courageous soldier but clearly Lady Macbeth didn 't notice that in her husband; so out of helplessness, Macbeth was provoked into proving himself to her, thus murdering King Duncan. In addition, Lady Macbeth has a list of different qualities which women in 16th Century weren 't supposed to have, which tested the stereotypical Tudor woman. This quote from Lady Macbeth could also be a indication of her reassuring herself that and telling herself that even though she’s a woman and society is stopping her from choosing her own destiny she can still do anything she desires if she’s confident enough and has the ambition and will power
When they first meet, Catherine is of a higher part of society. With appalling behavior, she mistakes Hareton as a “servant [of Wuthering Heights]” (183). Insulted by her mistake, Hareton sends her away from Wuthering Heights, but not before throwing an insult back, and calls her “[a] saucy witch!” (184).

[or if he is] so stupid... not [to] understand [her]” (207).

In uttering these words, Lady Macbeth accuses her husband of being too feminine. She notices that he is too feminine and humane to kill the king. Even though they are quite powerful already in society, the Macbeths believe they are still somehow without purpose. Their marriage itself is an obvious indication of this as neither seems content with the qualities of the other. Lady Macbeth especially expressed criticism towards her husband for her wants in him.
