The movie explores the life of a lion, whose future is to be king, but is tricked by his own uncle, stealing the kingdom from him. The film follows the lion’s struggles of finding his identity and becoming the rightful ruler of Pride Rock. Specifically, I will apply two archetypes to Simba, that main protagonist of the film. I believe that The Orphan and The Warrior archetypes are best representable by Simba because of the many moments in the movie where Simba embodies the description of the
It gives off the a tone to the reader that there is war or that there once was war. Levine’s word usage is what gives the poem its unfortunate tone right from the start. Rather than choosing softer language, he starts his poem with words a phrases like “acids of rage” (Levine 3) and
¨Maybe there is a beast... maybe it 's only us¨. This quote was written by William Golding, the author of Lord of the Flies. This quote connects to the symbolism developed throughout the book Lord of the Flies because through the story the characters learn the beast is themselves all along. This connects to the symbolism of the conch because the conch is part of what makes the boys become the ¨beasts¨. In Lord of the Flies one major symbol is the conch. The conch is a shell that Piggy and Ralph, two of the main characters, find in the beginning of the story.
The specific reason that Michiavelli might have had to create "The Prince" are unknown. Some theorize that he wrote out of resentment after being banished from holding political office. Where he may have written for resentment he may also have written to impress his superiors in a desire to gain reinstatement. Uncertain of his intentions, the possibility that the book was written to retain face value and document what Michavelli believed to be the "wickedness" of man.
This quote also demonstrates his belief of absolutism by being able to make laws legal just by commanding them to happen. King Louis XIV decided to invite Nobles of a certain rank to live at Versailles for a portion of every year. King Louis XIV hoped this would deter the noble class “from developing their own regional power,” according to the article, The Palace of Versailles. Louis XIV truly believed that for the government of France to stay in good hands, he would need to have absolute control, and by keeping rich nobles close to him in Versailles, nothing would be treating his control, and to King Louis, that translates to him doing a good job as
By pointing out past confrontations in an accurate manner, King George VI appeals to the people’s logos. If the reasoning behind his actions can be seen by his subjects, they will feel predisposed to put him in their favor and support the war effort. At the start of his reign, King George VI was doubted by many of his people, so he needed this speech to succeed to win them over. In order to achieve this, he epitomized the role of a compassionate leader during a somber time in trying to connect with his
At the end of the play, Oedipus the king, once Oedipus is exiled, the new king is proclaimed to be Creon. Oedipus is a hero, good at the heart and very just in his actions, and that is what made him unsuitable to be properly king. He was kind, yet to a fault. The thoughts needed to be a king are different than those that are needed to be a hero. Creon, however, has the thought process necessary to be king, and a good one at that.
When it comes to people, Brutus is loving and wants the best for them. It's a decision between morals or friends and makes that decision clear that he rather choose the right morals over having a friend in power. Throughout the novel Julius Caesar's morals is to be seen as ambitious and wanting people to praise him while Brutus's morals being Humble and doing what is ethical. The Characteristics of Julius Caesar and Brutus contradict each other and Brutus does what his morals are to get rid of Julius Caesar or in the play to assassinate him. Another example of of his morally right decisions affecting an outcome is his influence on the conspirators.
The various ways Shakespeare dramatizes and explores power, allows us to obtain a richer impression of the theme of power in The Tempest. Government and authority both carry out important functions in the play. It is the subject of government that initiates the events in the play and it is also the foundation of the progression throughout the play. Prospero is the fundamental piece in the play concerning governance because he used to be the Duke of Milan, but loses his title to his brother Antonio when he devotes too much of his time learning magic rather than ruling his people and seeing his obligations through: “The government I cast upon my brother, [a]nd to my state grew stranger, being transported [a]nd rapt in secret studies,” (p.10). This is also the cause of Prospero and his infant
How does a comparison of Machiavelli’s The Prince and Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar reflect the way their particular social, cultural and historical context can influence their choice of language, forms and features and the ideas, values and attitudes? Through a comparison, the historical, cultural and social context of literature are reflected through a writer’s language forms and features, highlighting the relevance of the ideas, values and attitudes of their time. As made evident throughout the Renaissance with Niccolo Machiavelli’s ‘The Prince,” which reveals itself to be a political guide on gaining and ruling a kingdom for Lorenzo De Medici, a potential candidate for leadership of Italy. Similarly, in William Shakespeare’s ‘Julius Caesar,’
