A hero should always do well for his followers; Richard only proved to be loyal to himself. He abused his people by saying he was “enforced to farm our royal realm, the revenue whereof shall furnish us” (1.4.45-46). King Richard taxed the poor to fund his luxuries and wars, without thinking of how it affected his people. He thought like a man instead of a king and this lead him to not only losing his title, but his credibility. Instead of becoming a tragic hero, he became a tragic fool; not only did he abdicate his throne, because he could not handle the pressure, he showed that was not fit to be a king, even if he was born for it.
. Darry has never really gotten over not going to college” (Hinton 109). Basically, anybody would choose to finish a career over a more strenuous life of arduous occupations. Of course, Darry would have chosen college over two jobs, but because of his compassion towards the gang, he would choose them over anything. Not only did the gang prevent him from finishing his studies, but from overall becoming a high-class man; as Ponyboy had announced to the rest of his
Although he had a profound legacy William the Conqueror’s early life had many conflicts, William the Conqueror’s had to show how worthy of an opponent he is and his death was unexpected, but even through the cold grasp death, he still lives on. William the Conqueror faced many challenges during his rise to power. The challenges he faced started the day he was born, “He was born in Falaise in 1028- his parents were unmarried” (Lords and Ladies). This posed a problem because being a child of an unmarried couple made you illegitimate and a mistake rather than a new life brought into the world. Being illegitimate did not stop William from being duke because he
“His life had been ruled by a great passion”, the drive from being unlike Unoka set Okonkwo’s goal “to become one of the lords of the clan” but because of him being expelled he couldn’t “[achieve] it” (131). Okonkwo’s fear of being like his father came crashing down as he left Umuofia and lost all the titles he had worked for. He was forcefully reverted to his original identity, having nothing. This experience showed Okonkwo that no matter how hard he worked he could always end back in the position that Unoka was in because that is where everyone
In medieval England, social status and rank are very important in everyday life. There are some things a person is obligated to do because of his/her social rank, and some things a person is forbidden to do because of his/her social class. In the movie, the Knight’s Tale there is a very good example of how social classes can not do certain things beyond their class. William Thatcher, for example cannot technically be a knight by birth because he is born into the lower social class. His father had to give him up as a child into an apprenticeship sort of so he could have a better life.
The major values that they challenge are respecting your elders and the value of the land. They did not respect their father’s wishes, especially the third son. Wang Lung’s third son became a soldier even though his father had disapproved of it and he was resistant. They are more interested in the money because they did not grow up poor and ??. At the end of the novel, when they want to sell the land is when I believe that is when they challenge practices.
One of the first conflicts we see is the main character Huck against his father Pap Finn. Pap Finn’s mere existence caused fear in Huck. Although there is no argument that was he was very unsuited to raise a child. it just so happens that even had to go as far as faking his own death to get away from him. Another example of man vs. man in the book was Huck vs. the duke and dauphin.
Tom doesn’t know how to deal with royal business, so they think the prince is losing his mind. Finally, Edward is back to his palace and proves that he is the king. Also, he does two more things. He gives Tom a big job in the palace and helps Miles to get his wealth back and the opportunity to sits down when everyone is standing for the king. A major theme of the novel that is not everything we want to have is what we like.
He tried to play the part just so he could get a job, but when his character is really broken down, it is easy to see what kind of a person he really is. The people were not sure that he was in Military, or anything else about him. The only evidence that lent to his story of coming from the military was how he went about his killing spree. He had a very militaristic way of doing things, but it was still never proved he came from the military. He simply was an out of place person in the wrong community for him.
He ruled each land according to its own traditions and customs. This made his entire empire weaker because they were not fully united. Another obstacle that Charles V faced was the fact that he had no ambition to extend his influence using military force. He collected wealth to maintain an army, but it was only used to put out rebellions and uprisings within the areas he already controlled. The final obstacle that Charles V faced was more of an outside push factor.

In the book Crispin, the author writes about a nameless boy in medieval times who is treated quite poorly throughout his life. The boy does not know his real name and is always referred to as “Asta’s Boy.” I think that Avi chose to write about a poor peasant boy rather than a lord or prince because he wanted to show the audience that even in medieval times, people were treated by where they were on the class poll. Nobody tends to pay any mind to the ones that really struggle because they’re too busy paying mind to the people who are higher up and more important in the eyes of society. In the book, the boy, also known as “Asta’s son” is treated poorly by the people of his village and by his master, John Aycliffe because of his mother and because
Stanislavsky didn 't want to just be an actor he wanted to be able to take his ideas and expand on then and to do this he researched and took on various new ideas and theories in order to expand his own knowledge of drama and acting.
