One example of this is seen in comparing Lancelot’s story in Le Morte d’Arthur, written by Thomas Malory and “Lancelot” written by Edwin Arlington Robinson. Le Morte d’Arthur was written by Thomas Malory around 1485 and is one of the first publications that explains the Arthurian character Lancelot.

This may have been prevented if McMurphy would have stood up for Cheswick against Nurse Ratched but he didn't. Therefore this shows McMurphy has tremendous power now in the ward and Nurse Ratched knows it. That’s you can say Nurse Ratched fears McMurphy because he's not like the rest of the patients that she can control McMurphy is different. For my third and final example is how McMurphy organizes the Deep Sea Fishing trip and just needs one more man for the trip.

I think shakespeare is exploring the fact that many people are not born a blank slate. The evil that takes over hamlets life is partially because of the death of his father, but mostly just because of the cunning person he is. He loves to lure people in an feel welcome, and then can easily mess things up. I think killing polonius will not have that much effect on his character later in the play. This was what he had to do in his mind to fix his own issues.- REVENGE/MORAL CORRUPTION

After Beowulf and Grendel’s outcome, Unferth realizes he was wrong and even offers a truce, by giving him a sword, Hrunting, and supporting him against his next great battle. Beowulf stood up for himself, went out and defeated Grendel, and saved the mead hall, while proving Unferth wrong.
Have you ever wondered if chivalry was still alive today? For those of you who don’t know what chivalry is, chivalry is the act of religion, moral, and social code.

In my opinion, the beatings that occur within the story tears the family apart in an interesting manner.
