We’ll go, and at his feet kneel down, With joy to thank him for his goodness shown; And this first duty done, with honours due, We’ll then attend upon another, too. With wedded happiness reward Valere, And crown a lover noble and sincere. ( Tartuffe, 5.7.97-102) King Louis XIV’s favor was strongly important to Molière when he wrote Tartuffe. Therefore, within the play he put his best efforts in showing his admiration towards him. Despite the King is not physically a character in the play, he counts for a lot.
As the great American author Mario Puzo one said, “The strength of a family, like the strength of an army, lies in its loyalty to each other.”This is saying that loyalty gives people the ability to work together and succeed in anything they set out to do. In The Odyssey, written by Homer and translated by Robert Fagles, they really learn the power on relying on one another and seeing why loyalty is so really important in life and so nothing can get in the way to succeed in life. And as the story is going through the journeys of Odysseus he learns different way to get all the tasks and challenges done and still try to find a way home to get back to his wife and his only child. Even though he does put his crew in some unpromising situations,
Despite how “The Voice” comes across to some of the faculty, Owen is simply trying to make a difference at the school and give the students a voice: “The Voice was our voice; he championed our causes; he made us proud of ourselves in the atmosphere that belittled and intimidated us,” (290).

I’LL NEVER LEAVE YOU,” (267). Owen is extremely demanding.

Glory is the prime motivation for Beowulf in his story. Beowulf wants to be remembered for the great deeds he has done in his lifetime, like Hrothgar. Hrothgar, the king has earned his glory in his youth. “To Hrothgar was given such glory of war, such honor of combat, that all his kin obeyed him gladly…” (Part 1) Hrothgar is now old and unable to protect his kingdom, and Beowulf decides that he will step in and help because of the glory it will give him. To defeat the monster is a great way to get his name out there and be known world wide.
In the epic novel The Odyssey by Homer, the audience becomes familiar with the main character Odysseus in such a way that one can create a detailed character sketch of Odysseus.
