However, when Ariel saves Prince Eric and falls in love with him, the King is furious and burns her collection of artefacts to assure she plays the stereotypical female role, instead, of trying to be a hero because it is an animus trait. The roles of gender as a social construction are evident because men want solutions to conflicts that arise. King Triton could have let Ariel live her dream life earlier in the film by giving her legs with his trident, though he did not want her to go near humans. The King is the only one with a trident, proving the lack of power women have because he can do anything and make the female puppets to please him. For instance, King Triton is furious when Ariel goes missing during the concert and forbids her from going to shore.

Although described as a rather large man, Lennie’s role between the two men is very childlike.

Lennie is also fairly unintelligent and blindly loyal to George. This loyalty is seen when George tells Lennie to jump into a river, and Lennie obeys even though he is unable to swim.
Analysis of Piggy in Lord of the Flies Though physically vulnerable and socially inept, Piggy stands as the voice of reason and is the last sense of rationality and innocence among the boys. Though Piggy shows signs of low self esteem and is frequently made fun of, he is intelligent and good natured. Though he acts as Ralph’s advisor and is the most intelligent of the boys, he is often overlooked and his comments are often disregarded.

The last character to be evaluated in Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales is the Parson. When closely exanimating his character, no flaw can be found.

There is nothing in his heart but love for God and others.
