The tolerance to break this is accepted more or less among people, and their success makes other hard-working people in to believing the same. Although the official rules, kings and leaders, in this case Macbeth, can believe that dishonesty sometimes can be a tolerated method by helping themselves and the ones that surrounds them to success. Macbeth faces a hard time standing up to his very own decisions and listens to lady Macbeth that eventually makes him want to live up to her expectations. This destroys his personality quickly and gets very paranoid that makes him corrupt and disloyal. When Macbeth achieved the position as a king in such random matter and surprisingly for both Macbeth and Lady Macbeth, the lack of preparations not just physically, but mentally has very big consequences.
Unlike the mentors in Romeo and Juliet, good mentors “[teach] the mentee to develop their own strengths, beliefs, and personal attributes”(Loretto). Shakespeare’s play, Romeo and Juliet, had a shocking turn of events that were led by the decisions of the mentors. In Romeo and Juliet, Romeo and Juliet’s parents are in an ancient grudge with each other, so Romeo and Juliet are star-crossed lovers. Some events of fate and the tragic flaws of the characters lead to the tragic deaths of Romeo and Juliet. While some may argue that Romeo and Juliet’s personalities are responsible for the deaths of Romeo and Juliet, it is actually the mentors’ fault because of the encouraged marriage, the complicated plan, and thoughtless consequences.
And to top it all off, he represents one who jokes too often can be one to joke his way to untimely death. Although all of these factors may not be agreed with among others, I will prove my reasoning for such that Mercutio stand for, outsetting with disliking both houses, continuing with the fate, and ceasing with the joker who joked his way to death. First, to begin with how Mercutio stands as a mediator in Romeo and Juliet. He does not approve of either house, and although he is Romeo’s friend he likely wouldn’t side with his house when given the decision of which house he’d rather follow, in fact, he undoubtedly wouldn’t choose either, he is
The Pardoner tells a story of three men who come to pay for indulging in the sin of greed, while the Wife of Bath recounts a story of questionable morality involving a knight struggling for redemption after breaking his code of honor. Though The Canterbury Tales presents two sound stories, “The Pardoner’s Tale” is clearly better story based on its adherence to the central plot, its use of personification, and its moral. Firstly, “The Pardoner’s Tale” had fewer digressions from the main plot and thus remained more coherent throughout the telling. The Wife of Bath avoids the point of her story several times, most notably going off on an excessively long tangent about “The unhappy Midas [who] grew a splendid pair / Of ass’s ears” (188) to demonstrate
You will see the trials that he faced and may find that Sir Gawain’s decisions turned out for the better for him. You may also think that some events that happened are confusing, but if you keep reading you will see how it falls into place. Sir Gawain always tried to live by his morals of chivalry, loyalty, and honesty, but you will see in this story how times can be tempting; for instance, Sir Gawain showed his loyalty to King Arthur by standing in place of the king for the challenge of the Green Knight; Sir Gawain also restrained from sexual advances from the king’s wife; including, Sir Gawain’s honesty about the gift he received from the king’s wife. Sir Gawain accepts the challenge for King Arthur. One day King Arthur and his knights were gathered to celebrate Christmas and the New Year, when suddenly, an enormous, fully green man arrives at court named the Green Knight.
The “A” made people overlook who she really was. “She was self-ordained a Sister of Mercy… The letter was a symbol of her calling. Such helpfulness was found in her… that many people refused to interpret the scarlet A by its original signification. They said that it meant Able.”(Hawthorne 146). Even with all the mocking and ridicule that was put on her, she still had the strength to push through it and carry on with her life.
First off, their relationship will not work out because Claudio makes various assumptions with any confrontation. Claudio is easily the most gullible character. In the novel, he works with Don Pedro to woo Hero; however, once Don John purposely messes with Claudio’s view on the situation, he is quick to change his mind. Claudio believes Don Pedro is trying to woo Hero for himself, and states, “‘Tis certain so, the Prince woos for himself. Friendship is constant in all other things save in the office and affairs of love.
Both tales have positions on honor, which reflect a moral inversion seen within the Decameron. In the tale of Caterina and Ricciardo, the story ends happily due to the fact Riccardo was caught and given a choice by Caterina’s father to either marry his daughter or be killed for romping around with her. While in the tale of Tancredi and Ghismonda, the story ends in tragedy due to a false honor. This honor devised was hidden underneath a layer of jealousy, and debatably, an insinuated desire for Ghismonda by Tancredi himself. Ghismonda also died in Guiscardo’s honor.
Portia character is so wonderful. She has the faith that her father’s words will help her find the right suitor; however, her faith did get shaky when it seemed like she would never find him. Portia stands for sacrifice, which is something she does the entire play. Waiting for a suitor, she sacrifices her own happiness to keep her promise to her father trusting his words. Portia sacrifices her own identity when she takes on the role as the doctor in court.
Katherine deceives the people around her and the audience to think that she let her husband Petruchio tame her but really she was never truly tamed only acting as if she was to keep peace between them. To prove the comment stated above about Katherine pretending to be tamed viewers can find several claims in Act 4. Like when the audience noted that Katherine was being told to pretend to be tamed in Act 4 Scene 5. Hortensio told Katherine to “say what he wants or we’ll never go.” Pg.207 he was inferring that if she just agreed her problem would stop and they could move on. Hortensio was also encouraging Katherine to pretend to agree with Petruchio to help
