Loyalty vs. Righteousness in William Faulkner’s Short Story Barn Burning - The term “blood brothers” usually refers to two or more males who accept each other and have decided to create a bond by fusing one another’s blood together; this would mean that these males chose to be bonded. But when it comes to ones own bloodline, it is not possible to choose ones parents. For this reason, one must learn to analyze what is right and wrong, even if it’s not something the parent(s) want him to believe.

The Symbolism of Heorot Hall - Loyalty is the act of being faithful to one’s obligations and commitments. Such a characteristic may not be very obvious in today’s world; however, it certainly is prominent in the Anglo-Saxon society. The pattern of loyal dependency is basic to Anglo-Saxon life. It grows out of a need to protect individuals from the horrors of enemy-infested wilderness. Loyalty, an extremely valued ideal in the Anglo-Saxon community, can be seen in many works written from that time period. In the epic poem Beowulf, the author utilizes characterization of women, and symbolism of Heorot Hall, and depictions of brotherly love to show that loyalty is needed to keeping harmony within a society that is under con...   [tags: Beowul, Loyalty, Anglo-Saxon] 1220 words

Analysis of The Concept of Greatness - “True heroism is remarkably sober, very undramatic. It is not the urge to surpass all others at whatever cost, but the urge to serve others at whatever cost.” The films, Braveheart and Gladiator, strikingly depict this as both protagonists lead their respective armies to victory at the expense of their own lives, leaving behind their legacy of greatness through their leadership, courage and loyalty. The theme of leadership permeates throughout both films re-enforcing the concept of greatness.

Loyalty and Trust in Mark Twain's The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn - Huckleberry Finn – Loyalty and Trust Huckleberry Finn does not address questions of law as directly as the other novels that we have read. Ostensibly, Huck is torn between disobeying the slavery laws and honoring his conscious. However, Huck shows a disregard for other laws throughout the story, so I think that his conflict stems not from a belief that one must obey the law because it is the law, or on a social contract theory. Huck is never overly concerned with the truth or the norms of society, he adheres to the mores of society because of the consequences as opposed to any fundamental acceptance of them or authority....   [tags: Adventures Huckleberry Huck Finn Essays] 1512 words

However, Beowulf is not merely a capable warrior—he is also a skilled courtier, and it is his eloquence and way with words that wins admiration from the Hrothgar and the Danes of Heorot. What makes Beowulf’s behavior so admirable is not because he is merely enacting the moral ideals and virtues championed by the Anglo-Saxon society, but that he is doing so in spite of his status as a flawed character....   [tags: Epic Poems, Grendel, Anglo-Saxon]
