At first, he is distant from Franco and really does not show much emotion to him. However, as time goes by he grows a closer bond with Franco. After a heated disagreement they have in the shop, Arthur becomes worried when he thinks Franco may have left him also. He calls Franco, and expresses his worries and apologies to him. Leaving a voicemail, he states to Franco: “Sorry for all the messages, but I’m just getting a little worried here… I guess you’re not coming in today. I wish you’d at least call me.. I’m feeling like we had an argument and maybe, I don’t know…you know the number” (70). The essence of this quote is that Arthur quickly realizes that he might have possibly lost another friend. In other words, he has created an attachment to Franco and fears going through the feeling of forsakenness
King Arthur is an outstanding British leader of the 5th and the 6th centuries, son of Uther Pendragon and the Lady Igraine. Arthur is one of the greatest mythical heroes that the world has ever known. Arthur has had a great influence on other people and many of them looked up to him. The coming of Arthur was prophesied years before he was even born. Arthur was born into a world of chaos and disorder, full of love and tragedy. Nowadays, many of the scholars continue to argue whether or not King Arthur was a real person or just a mythological figure. Based on facts however, many believe that Arthur was not a real person; just a legendary British leader in the 5th and 6th centuries. According to history, there wasn't anyone named King Arthur in the late 5th and the early 6th centuries of Britain. As well the actions of King Arthur don’t correspond with the typical actions of a king at the time. Also the events described in the tales of King Arthur are not linked to any real historical events. King Arthur’s legend was magnificent in a way that represents the spirit of kingship at the time, but sadly, it may have been nothing but a bedtime story.
Although King Arthur is one of the most well-known figures in the world, his true identity remains a mystery. Attempts to identify the historical Arthur have been unsuccessful, since he is largely a product of fiction. Most historians, though, agree that the real Arthur was probably a battle leader of the Britons against the Anglo-Saxons in the sixthth century. In literature, King Arthur's character is unique and ever changing, taking on a different face in every work. There is never a clearly definitive picture that identifies Arthur's character. It is therefore necessary to look at a few different sources to get better insight into the character of Arthur, the once and future king.

Richard Wright’s memoir Black Boy (American Hunger): A Record of Childhood and Youth recounts the author’s personal experience growing up as an African American male in the Jim Crow South, as well as his initial years in the North in the late 1920s. While it is a personal account of one man’s life in this time period, Wright’s memoir also sheds light on the broader role of black men in American society in the early twentieth century, particularly with respect to race, gender, and class relations. By no accident, insight on these relations can be gleaned from the title of Wright’s memoir itself. I argue that Wright chose the provocative title Black Boy (American Hunger): A Record of Childhood and Youth in order to both utilize shock value and explicitly draw attention to the characteristics that had defined him his entire life, with or without his consent. In choosing this particular title, Wright was making the statement that at the turn of the 20th century, being a member of the African American race greatly determined one’s gender role and class in American society, while simultaneously impacting his or her daily conditions of existence and future aspirations. In order to demonstrate how Wright’s title selection speaks to these issues, I will analyze, in turn, the title’s implications regarding race, gender, and class for American black males in the early 1900s.
The love triangle of Arthur, Lancelot, and Guenever is a constant theme throughout every account of the Arthurian legend. Geoffrey Ashe's The Arthurian Handbook states that "We may say that these knights are expected to serve their King..."(81). The revelation of the affair finally comes when Sir Agravaine shouts, "'Traitor Knight! Sir Lancelot, now art thou taken'"(White 569). Lancelot was summoned to Queen Guenever's bedroom, and Sir Agravaine is finally exposing the affair and gaining revenge on Lancelot for unhorsing him many times in the past. The two people that Arthur trusts most are Guenever and Lancelot. Arthur is well aware of the affair between the two, but chooses to pretend that nothing is going on. Due to this naivety, Arthur earns the disrespect (and even hatred) of Agravaine and Mordred, who eventual...
