He does not see Iago’s intentions and does not understand that he is being used for his funds. Iago fills Roderigo with empty promises, and he follows, in hopes he may gain success. Roderigo is tunnel-visioned as his only motive is two gain the love of Desdemona. “If she be in her chamber or your house, let loose on me the justice of the state for thus deluding you.” (I.i.153-155) Roderigo’s only goal is marry Desdemona, and as a result, he is tunnel-visioned and is gullible to anything Iago tells him. “It cannot be.
Hamlet is overly conscious and unable to make a decision because of the uncertainty of the consequences that might follow. There is a constant threat that reaction these consequences will not be what he expects, possibly being detrimental to his cause. This deters him from attempting to execute any of his machinations. All these factor demonstrate that Hamlet does not suffer from a failure of will, but rather of an over analytical character that impedes him from taking any significant action. By constantly questioning every aspect of a possible action, Hamlet ultimately finds a reason no to act.
His proposition reduces "the noblest knights known under Christ” (Part 1) “to cowering, quaking men.”(Part 1) In spite how the court reacted to the Green Knight's challenge, Arthur still insists, "No guest here is aghast of your great words" (Part 1). By verbally accepting the Green Knight's challenge, Sir Gawain supports Arthur's playful - if not outright dishonest - words, thereby managing to maintain the integrity of King Arthur's court. He also unknowingly passes his first and most obvious test. It is in the castle that Sir Gawain's ability t... ... middle of paper ... ... host. However, because he does not realize that he is being tested, Sir Gawain fails the test.
When Gawain realizes he was the subject of a test, he sees Bertilak/Green Knight in a different light. The Green Knight now becomes Gawain’s confessor and in doing so assumes a fatherly role. We see that Bertilak perceives Gawain’s fault, his love of life, and irrespective of it, loves Gawain. Despite having sinned, Bertilak sees in Gawain a first-rate knight, far superior to his peers in Camelot, who, faced with the spectre of death, grew silent with cowardice, as the honor of the King lay unguarded.
Some of his beliefs about life include that it is absurd because he thinks it’s just a game, and that it is mankind’s responsibility to look over oneself because death is a traveling burden. Even during his trial he is at a disadvantage because of his inability to connect with the conventions of society. In Albert Camus’ The Stranger, Meursault loses his faith in life, God, and society because of his lack of understanding and comprehending his feelings and emotions. If the purpose of religion is to bring people together in unity and also give them a sense of hope, then why is Meursault so uninterested and unaffected by any of the events that took place during the novel such as his mother’s funeral, his relationship with Marie, or even his trial? The real purpose Meursault acts the way he does is because he loses is faith in himself and humanity.
Chaucer illustrates this act of immorality when he says, “Now truly…so do I. I never spare to take a thing, knows God, unless it be too heavy or too hot. What I get for myself, and privately, no kind of conscience for such things have I”. (170-174). The summoner is being dishonest to the people that he collects from by not telling him that he keeps the money. The summoner admits to the Devil that he steals.
He faltered not nor feared But quickly went his way, His road was rough and weird, Or so the stories say. (qtd. Stone 47) Sir Gawain stands up just as the Green Knight challenges King Arthur. Gawain saves his uncle from the humiliation the Green Knight imposes on the King from his badgering; for this Gawain is very brave. He has no fear in approaching the Green Knight and accepting the game.
When someone else steals the money from them, King becomes worried. Huck asks if there something wrong (155) and King gets upset by replying that is none of his business his business and worry about his ownself and his affairs (155). It is comical that King wanted to wait on him and call him by his noble name only when it suits them at the time. King and Duke have no consequences for their actions and holds other people accountable for theirs. Another example of hypocrisy is the racial hypocrisy.
He is may seem truly worried about what will become of him in the after-life yet this worry is superficial since he is still unable to ask for forgiveness since repenting would mean giving up the benefits that he received “My crown, mine own ambition and my queen”. In the end, Claudius is a hypocrite since he is trying to pray yet he does not. Claudius’s attempt to pray confirms that he is entirely aware of his actions and his hypocrisy, but he is unwilling to ask for forgiveness or give up his
He displays his devotion in nobility and is defended many others by his acts of humility. Sir Gawain successfully accomplished in his responsibility in being an ideal knight by showing his true courage. It is hard to say anyone has ever been a completely "ideal" knight or even any person rather, no one is perfect, but he definitely encompasses many of the attributes ... ... middle of paper ... ...nd game playing. Sir Gawain and the temptress results in him losing his moral innocence, consequently he then expresses that he failed himself personally and in his knighthood. He stops viewing himself as a great chivalric knight.
