Chaucer's Canterbury Tales - Concept of Charity in the General Prologue - The Concept of Charity in the General Prologue   In the "General Prologue," Chaucer presents an array of characters from the 1400's in order to paint portraits of human dishonesty and stupidity as well as virtue.  Out of these twenty-nine character portraits three of them are especially interesting because they deal with charity.  Charity during the 1400's, was a virtue of both religious and human traits.  One character, the Parson, exemplifies Chaucer's idea of charity, and two characters, Prioress, and Friar, to satirize the idea of charity and show that they are using charity for either devious reasons or out of convention or habit....   [tags: General Prologue Essays]

Chaucer's Canterbury Tales - The Wife of Bath as Depicted in the General Prologue - The Wife of Bath Depicted in the General Prologue       At the first reading of the "General Prologue" to the Canterbury Tales, the Wife of Bath seems to be a fairly straightforward character.  However, the second time through, the ironies and insinuations surface and show the Wife's bold personality.  For example, she is rather opinionated.  The second line in the passage, "But she was somdel deef, and that was scathe," seems only to indicate that she is a little hard of hearing.  However, coupled with a line from the end of the passage noting that she liked to talk, this deafness could mean either that she is really deaf and talks because she cannot hear what others say to her or that she simply does not listen to what anyone else says (Nardo 126).  The next line, "Of clooth-makyng she hadde swich an haunt," is obviously the Wife's own opinion of herself and not objective at all.  This is ironic because she is from near Bath, in western England, where the weavers were not very good, so she is probably not very talented at all (Bowden 215).  She, however, does not doubt herself.  The Wife is also very practical.  In lines 469 through 473 she is described in traveling gear:   Upon an amblere esily she sat, Y-wympled wel, and on hir heed an hat As brood as is a bokeler or a targe, A foot-mantel aboute hir hipes large, And on hir feet a peyre of spores sharpe....   [tags: General Prologue Essays]

As James Madison reports that during the Convention the use of the term was a direct copy of that use from the Articles of Confederation, as stated in his letter to Edmund Pendleton. James Madison should certainly know if this was the case or not, since during the Convention James Madison with out question kept the most detailed notes, other Delegates made it a habit to provide Madison with written copies of speeches or plans to have placed in his record, and most importantly was a member of the Committee of Detail that drew up the final drafts of the Constitution in which general welfare was inserted in this clause....   [tags: U.S. Government ]

The most radical change during the course of the drama is undergone by the protagonist, the Moor. Robert Di Yanni in “Character Revealed Through Dialogue” states that the deteriorated transformation which Othello undergoes is noticeable in his speech: Othello’s language, like Iago’s, reveals his character and his decline from a courageous and confident leader to a jealous lover distracted to madness by Iago’s insinuations about his wife’s infidelity....   [tags: Othello essays]

Through his successes as the Commander of the Canadian Corps, he knew how to delegate authority and stand by the decisions of his subordinates. Currie, however, was not a professional soldier....   [tags: essays research papers] 1958 words

The General Strike was An Attempted Revolution - The General Strike was An Attempted Revolution During the General strike there was true governmental concern about what seemed to be a revolutionary threat in the form of workers and TUC members who went on strike as part of their efforts to improve working conditions, reduce working hours and increase wages. Much evidence is available from around this time giving us a clear insight into the reasons for this concern and how it came about. Source 1, an article from the British Gazette (controlled by the Government) produced very early on in the strike highlights the key concern felt by the Government at the time supporting both the statement and introduction: 'The General strike is a challenge to Parliament and the road to anarchy and ruin' This quote is a direct example of how the Government viewed the strikers and how they were desperate for public support to help reduce the possibility of a national revolution, the bit that shows that they do fear it is a revolution is when they talk about the General strike being a 'challenge to Parliament' something most normal strikes are of course not, this is backed up by the Daily Mail, Source 2, even more explicitly than before by clearly stating, 'it is a revolutionary movement intended to inflict suffering upon the great mass of innocent persons in the community', this although more explicit than the first quotation from the actual official governmental newspaper, is non the less trying to influence the public opinion into seeing the stroke as revolutionary, due to the fact that the source was printed in France, evidence of the TUC's work on banning all printing in London, this therefore, influenced the Daily Mail's opinion of the strike in favour of the Government....   [tags: Papers] 841 words
