King Arthur was a very powerful and intelligent king. From childhood, he learned many virtues and lessons, but he didn’t know that the lessons he was learning had to do with becoming a great leader. Ben Carson is very similar to king Arthur in many ways. Ben learned several things from childhood as well as from reading literature of the world around him which made him a great man later on in life. I will be talking about Ben Carson and why he is a great reincarnation of King Arthur.
Throughout the novel, Ralph displays traits of his ability to assess, prioritize, and lead in a selfless manner. Ralph’s clear ability to assess situations and make the best decisions for the group allow him to be a great leader for all.

Great leaders consider all the variables and all the things that could happen before making an informed decision. Ralph makes decisions after considering everything.
Childhood Killing someone for something that happened 36 years ago as a child might sound absurd, but it might not be. In “The Utterly Perfect Murder” by Ray Bradbury, a man named Doug wakes up in the middle of the night to kill his childhood “friend”, Ralph. He does not know why it took him 36 years for it to come to him, but he decides that it needs to be done. So he gets on a train, leaving his family behind. However, when Doug arrives at Ralph’s house he decides not to kill him because of the physical and mental state Ralph has deteriorated to.
Any man who allows his crew to tie him up on a wooden pole of a ship must be dedicated. In Ithaca, though Odysseus has not seen his beloved wife for twenty years, he cannot reveal his identity. Instead, he must disguise himself as a beggar in order to make sure the suitors will not kill his son and him. This shows Odysseus’ dedication to keep following his plans and to be a good leader for Telemachus. Odysseus then passes his wife’s tests and kills all the suitors.
Hamlet’s friend came to him telling him that he saw the ghost of his dad. The next night Hamlet was on lookout for the ghost. The ghost told him that Claudius killed him by putting poison in his ear. Hamlet accidentally killed Polonius thinking it was Claudius; he also killed Laertes (Polonius’s son). Did Hamlet have a reason for his actions?
Through this quote, the audience is able to see that by Hamlet relying on fate and fortune, he was able to kill Polonius and should he continue to let fate take control, he would eventually avenge his father’s death. Likewise, in Ordinary People, after Conrad had blamed himself for letting his brother die for over a year, Conrad realizes that Buck’s drowning was not his fault. Conrad says, “And so he had been…Not since the summer before last and an unexpected July storm on Lake Michigan…It is chance and not perfection that rules the world.” (Guest 90). Conrad’s statement is extremely important because here he realizes that it didn’t matter how amazing of a person he was, he had no control over what happened on the lake and there was nothing he could do to prevent it. He accepts that he wasn’t responsible for his brother’s death, fate was.
Each protagonist future’s changed as they both lose those who were close to them. King Hamlet when he was still alive and after death influenced Hamlet as his father.

HAMLET’S JUSTICE In Shakespeare’s jam packed tragedy, Hamlet, Hamlet seeks justice for his father whom was slain by his own brother, Claudius. Hamlet defines justice as avenging his father’s death. His view on justice is seen as just an eye for eye type of ‘justice’. He learned that his father had been slain by his own family told by ‘King Hamlet’s Ghost’ and he’s ordered to go accomplish this
The inspiration that motivates someone can come from anything and anyone, and in Shakespeare’s Hamlet, there is a particular focus on both comparing one’s ideas to another and drawing inspiration from surrounding people. Young Prince Hamlet, desperate to fulfill his dead father’s unfinished revenge, took inspiration from a variety of sources. Mostly, it is other influential people in his life like the ghost of his father, the first actor, and his foil Fortinbras. In the second and fifth soliloquy, Hamlet characterizes himself as devoted compared to the others around him, and it highlights his desire to uphold his honor through these comparisons; these soliloquies strongly show Hamlet comparing himself to others and drawing inspiration from them and their differences to motivate him further in taking revenge for his father. Hamlet is characterized as indecisive but willing to go through with the revenge in
By committing murder and marrying the Queen he became the king of Denmark. He is a very intelligent guy and most likely everything he thought of, including his plan took years to execute. At different stages of the play, Claudius manipulates different characters in ways to benefits himself. The first scene in which we sees Claudius using words to manipulate the truth and the people around him is in Act 1 Scene 2. Everyone except Hamlet has moved on from the death of the late king Hamlet.
Even if I had not read this story before, I would have picked up on the fact that this singular point would be a catalyst to the rest of the plot. 2. At the beginning of the novel, Tom describes himself as a very tolerant man who often moves people who generally keep to themselves to open up to him without much effort. Tom prides himself on reserving his judgment of others until he takes time to observe and get to know them. This is a quality he is obviously proud of as he makes a point to describe his habits surrounding this quality in depth.
I do not just think twice when making a decision, I think many times before I decide what is the best choice to make. Since Slim has the respect of everyone on the ranch, I imagine he has to think deeply when he makes a decision as well. Slim and I share many qualities that have become core parts of our personalities. Reading the novel, Of Mice and Men, has gifted me with incredible characters, some more well-mannered than others, who I can relate to on a personal level. George, Lennie, and Slim, specifically, are the characters I can relate to the most and I am happy to have been given this book to
