The truth is that in our society education is highly important to have stability in life, so it makes sense that his parent were worried when he said he did not want to go to college. If I was in their place, I too would have wanted the best for McCandless and insisted he get a good education. I do think that McCandless is admirable for following his own path and not worrying about society's standards. At the same time, he seems a bit selfish despite his charity. He seems like he wants to impose his views on others because he thinks he is right, and when people do not completely agree, he cuts them out of his life.
Troy doesn’t want to admit it to Bono that he is cheating because in the beginning he is denying it. He says he is just being friendly with the other woman, Alberta, and that he is like that with all the women.

Lear believes that his daughter does not care for him and so takes away her inheritance, while Claudio believes that his betrothed has been unfaithful and so shames her on their wedding day. The final similarity is Shakespeare’s use of ‘funny characters,’ those whose value seems to be nothing more than to provide the audience, usually the groundlings, with same base form of amusement. Lear has his jester, and the maid Margaret plays the part in Much Ado. However, often these characters will be given deeply philosophical lines and essential parts in the furthering of the plot, which go unseen by the average, non-academic viewer. “While we might think little of the buffoonery of a Nick Bottom or the witticisms of a Feste, Shakespeare, his contemporaries in the early modern professional theatre and especially his audiences, valued clowning highly – and scrutinised it carefully in its
