You will see the trials that he faced and may find that Sir Gawain’s decisions turned out for the better for him. You may also think that some events that happened are confusing, but if you keep reading you will see how it falls into place. Sir Gawain always tried to live by his morals of chivalry, loyalty, and honesty, but you will see in this story how times can be tempting; for instance, Sir Gawain showed his loyalty to King Arthur by standing in place of the king for the challenge of the Green Knight; Sir Gawain also restrained from sexual advances from the king’s wife; including, Sir Gawain’s honesty about the gift he received from the king’s wife. Sir Gawain accepts the challenge for King Arthur. One day King Arthur and his knights were gathered to celebrate Christmas and the New Year, when suddenly, an enormous, fully green man arrives at court named the Green Knight.
However, Hotspur’s violent, power-hungry, and domineering nature imply he is after the throne to gain more honor and boost his ego. These flawed characteristics are apparent in the way he treats his wife, “Away! Away, you trifler. Love, I love thee not. I care not for thee, Kate.” (Henry 2.3.82-84) This shows how Hotspur is obsessed with the idea of power and control and will go off on his innocent, neglected wife who only wants love from her husband.
Another flaw of Elster is he doesn't have any remorse ruining someone's life. For instance, he hired Judy so she would pretend to be his wife, given him the perfect opportunity to kill his Madeliene. He later on tricked Judy by taking all of the money and traumatized Scottie for life after he witnessed the love of his life die for the second time. For this character the only motivation for killing his wife is money. His wife came from a rich family, and he wanted to possess all her wealth.
Although Emilia eventually does stand up to her husband, she is obedient in a very plot-advancing way when she obtains and loyally passes along the symbolic handkerchief, token of Othello and Desdemona’s love, to the cunning and evil Iago. It was a task that fulfilled his ongoing request to obtain “that which so often you [Iago] did bid me [Emilia] steal,” and for that reason, shows how Emilia remained loyal in obeying Iago (3.3.354). Shakespeare even takes the paralleled obedience a bit further when Emilia ends an aside with her motive of taking the handkerchief for no other reason than “to please his [Iago’s] fantasy” (3.3.343). Despite Iago’s relentless abuse, there is still a part of Emilia that wants to please him and serve his desires, possibly earning affection in return, much in the same way as Desdemona states her desire at the beginning of this scene to “not now displease” her husband
From fearing him to thinking he is a good person, Dally and Pony are now friends. As I said earlier, Pony's beginning relationship with Dally was fear. He saw Dally as the toughest and meanest of the gang and therefore Pony feared him. However, as the story unfolds Pony starts seeing Dally as kind and caring.

Proving Gatsby being delusional and stubborn to believe he could reshape the past so that he could relight his relationship with Daisy, even if she married to Tom and also had a daughter.

She only does this because her husband tells her to so it didn’t cause her pain or guilt.

Iago’s plans on making Othello jealous were working. He progressively gets angrier with Desdemona and he eventually ended up killing her due to his intense jealousy. After the word gets out that Iago made the whole thing up, Othello’s heart sank and he was filled with guilt for the loss of his beloved
Power razes all of its enemies to the ground, and its enemies are ignorant of its presence.Power negatively affects others by turning someone with power on their allies, making the owner paranoid, and diminishing common sense.In Antigone, King Creon turned on his own niece in order to preserve his self-serving law. Power turns the holder onto their allies. Creon created fear in the hearts of his own sentries who selflessly worked hours keeping him safe. After gambling for the right to deliver the news, a lone sentry brazenly travels to tell Creon the news and after being berated says, “you have seen the last of me here…” and briskly walks off (scene I lines 160-163). Creon has disrupted the feeling of trust by misplacing fear in the hearts of the sentry because he wanted his edict to be all-powerful.
This shows that to people money matters so much they would go to measures of spending massive amounts of money to gain what they desire most. Second, Myrtle's desire for money compelled her to cheat on George and go for Tom because he's rich. This shows that people with a crave for money would go so far as to be unfaithful to their spouse. Finally, Daisy "began to cry stormily" at Gatsby's "beautiful shirts," (Fitzgerald chapter 5 pg 92) because she heavily admires and is impressed with his fortune. People who get emotional and get overwhelmed by someone's wealth must extremely admire them.
It is a key element in the knight’s story but how he had lust for this women and he used his power to take advantage of her. In the pardoner’s tale, lust shows up when three friends sacrifice their relationship with each other over their lust for riches. Geoffrey Chaucer says in the pardoner’s tale “Divided equally of course, dear friend. Then we can ratify our lusts and full the day with dicing at our own sweet will.” This means that all the friends care about is money, which in the end they betray eachother for, so the lust caused the friends to kill one another. By Chaucer saying “This these miscreants agreed to slay the third and youngest, as you heard me say.” This is a key point in the story because what Geoffrey Chaucer is trying to say is that money is the root of all evil because it caused three friends to end each other’s lives.
He is raising his children in a modern way than what is traditionally used in the setting of the story. He treats his kids as adults and tries his best to honestly answer any questions they have.

In other words she looked to be a merchant boy, on the cusp of manhood.
