Shakespeare’s play, Henry V, portrays the newly crowned king of England, King Henry V, as a committed, fearless, and relentless leader. France is England’s archenemy and their relationship only worsens after the Dauphin delivers a mocking message to England’s new king. The Dauphin frequently ridicules the English and King Henry, whereas, the King of France, Charles VI, does not underestimate Henry and his people as his son does. (Source B) Throughout the play, the two leaders display their differences in terms of personality, leadership, communication skills, and ethics. When Henry V first claimed the throne, England was in a state of disorder and dismay after endless wars.
He also wears the same clothing as his father, but made of a different, more colorful and elaborate fabric. Charles the Bold is visually the heir to the Burgundian throne, just by the way he mimics his father. The presentation of Charles as essentially a miniature Philip the Good assures the viewer that Charles will not stray from his father’s methods of diplomacy. Charles appears to be in motion, as do others in the miniature. He leans towards the knight in green, shifting his weight onto his left foot.
Shakespeare characterises Henry as a person who is both politically manipulative yet remorseful as shown through the religious allusion , “Our holy purpose to Jerusalem,” as he tries to salvage dignity after the death of Richard II after his ascension to the throne as king. At Henry’s camp in Shrewsbury, Worcester remarks on Henry’s manipulative nature, this create a deeper understanding of Henry’s character as the audience begins to realise that there is more to his character. Shakespeare makes a comment, specifically with the symbolism of Hal representing Henry, “I do. I will,” regarding how Elizabeth reacts to this awareness by reducing the numbers in her council down to eleven by 1597. This comprised of only her most trusted and valued advisers, and thus minimising the corruption that bled through parliament.
Creon cares extremely about his country of Thebes and creates his own laws. He mentions that, “There's been a group of grumblers in this town: men who can hardly abide by my rule, who nod and whisper, chafing beneath my law, who are not in love with it at all,” (Sophocles, 203). He speaks these words with anger towards whoever disobeys him. His extreme love for his country shows his noble stature which causes him to punish those who do not love Thebes as passionately as he does. Creon has the appearance of good, but when he chooses to not bury Polyneices, which goes against the beliefs of the Gods by not honoring him, he shows his tragic flaw.
As Creon is being introduced to the chorus he states that he will not bury Polynices, and he has brainwashed his court of public opinion so much they add to his overweening pride by saying “Your will is law” (132 Sophocles). He tells the public what he says is what goes. This is incredibly arrogant even as a king, but they continue to feed to him his hubirs. Michael Clayton considers himself a fixer or janitor. Early on His job is to fix and clean up anything and everything.
The role that King Louis XIV plays in Tartuffe, although not a character himself, affects the whole outcome of the play. King Louis XIV was an absolute monarch and was responsible for restoring order in society. The age of reason, 1660-1805, was a time to restore order while finding humor in those who stray away from order. King Louis was responsible for ensuring the safety and order of the country, and we come to learn that his power spreads much further than suspected. By divine right and being an offstage presence, King Louis XIV has the ability to control and assist everyone, whether it is warranted or not.
The issue in Marbury VS Madison originated when John Adams named forty-two justices before he left office. This was done to keep a check on the anti-federalist once Thomas Jefferson was elected. The ant-federalist were outrage, resulting in Thomas Jefferson deciding to not honor the commissions. The reasoning Jefferson gave was that “they had not been delivered by the end of Adam’s term.” This was a result of John Marshall failure to deliver them before Adams had left the presidency. Marbury decided to bring the case forward.
“The problem with socialism is that you eventually run out of other people’s money.” I believe Margaret Thatcher is onto something here. Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s twelve-year stint as president was plagued with socialist tendencies and departures from the Constitution. In their book, FDR Goes to War: How Expanded Executive Power, Spiraling National Debt, and Restricted Civil Liberties Shaped Wartime America, Burt and Anita Folsom address the issues with the “larger than life” president FDR and the administration he created. The author’s bias is found in phrases like, “Franklin Roosevelt wanted above all to stay in office” and The president had a tendency to think in terms of right and wrong, instead of legal and illegal. Because he thought that his motives were always good for the things he wanted to do, he found difficulty in thinking that there could be legal limitations on them.
The Federalist party is a stronger party for presidency because it stays neutral in foreign affairs, has a strong government, and is able to fix national debt problems. The Federalists stayed neutral in foreign affairs. They wanted to remain in peace with countries.“A new nation was developed and it stayed in peace for more than one century” (Document 2). Jefferson wanted the United States to remain neutral with the countries. The Federalists also wanted an alliance with Great Britain because they liked the way Great Britain saw radicalism in the French Revolution.
Prospero is the fundamental piece in the play concerning governance because he used to be the Duke of Milan, but loses his title to his brother Antonio when he devotes too much of his time learning magic rather than ruling his people and seeing his obligations through: “The government I cast upon my brother, [a]nd to my state grew stranger, being transported [a]nd rapt in secret studies,” (p.10). This is also the cause of Prospero and his infant
