This tale is based on the Celtic Sovereignty myth about a king marrying a goddess who initially appeared to be hideous, but with the willing kiss from the king, turned into a beautiful woman. In Sir Gawain, the knight is being tested to see if he will choose virtue and chastity or the beauty and promiscuity of the Lady of the Castle. If Sir Gawain had his way with the Lady of the Castle, he would have been killed because like the animal hunts, Gawain is prey to the Lady, who puts his chivalry, loyalty, and chastity to the test by trying to seduce him. Through this romantic litmus test, Sir Gawain is being tested to see if his moral values can withhold challenges such as the temptation of beauty. Morgan Le Fay creates this challenge to test Arthur’s knights and how strong their principles are.

Well Lady Macbeth, who is dead set on having absolute power, disagrees with that. She convinces Macbeth to kill, to cover up the murders, and tries to convince him that these murders will get them to the top. Lady Macbeth calls upon the witches and states, “unsex me here, and fill me from the crown to the toe top-full of direst cruelty” (Macbeth Act 1 Scene 5 lines 31 and 31). This shows that while in the pursuit of power, Lady Macbeth wanted it so much that she asked the witches to “unsex” her and make her more like man. But along with that you see the theme of gender roles are uncertain which ties into Lady Macbeth leading Macbeth in this pursuit of power, also giving him the ambition that she wants him to
The book “A Court of Thorns and Roses” is a boring story. I actually wanted to continue reading to see if anything interesting would happen but to no avail. The story is about Feyre, a mortal, who hunts for her poor family. She kills a fairy while hunting for food one day, which in this story fairies are the dominate species, and is forced to live in the kingdom of because of a treaty, leaving her family behind. I thought this was interesting, then i found out this book is actually retelling of the classic Beauty and The Beast, so of course i was intrigued.
Although this small change does not affect the fact that the White Witch has changed someone into stones, it can show different degree of the evilness in the heart of the White Witch. When she killed only the Fox in the movie, we can illustrate this as rage and fury when she heard about Father Christmas. However, when she turned groups of Narnians into statues, we can explain this further to her detest and abomination towards Narnians. She regards Narnians as obstacles for her to become the real queen of the realm. Besides, when she heard about Father Christmas, she was reminded of the alliance of Father Christmas and the Narnians, she even has grown a higher level of desire to kill more Narnians before Father Christmas has come.

Lady Macbeth showed the audience how far she was willing to go for her own power, by both calling upon the spirits to enable herself to get out of her role and influencing her husband to take action. She is ultimately the cataclysm that fanned the flames to her husband’s ambition and drive, and it is her own power that turned Macbeth into a vicious tyrant. In a way, Lady Macbeth truly was a witch because she succeeded in not only getting more power for herself, but for her husband too, and in the end her powers ended up destroying them
This implies that the love between the characters has been ‘destroyed’. However, the idea of the magical item bringing destruction to the beholder signifies foreshadowing. It foreshadows Desdemona’s death and the rest damage it causes. The magical handkerchief refers back to a quote said by Brabantio in Act 1, where he claims that Othello has bewitched his daughter into falling in love and marrying him. The quote above supports Brabantio’s theory as Othello himself has stated that he gave Desdemona a magical item as a token of his
