The Canterbury Tales Gender
Most of the Canterbury tales emphasize men and women and the roles that they play. Specifically in marriage, Geoffrey Chaucer has etched out a tradition of literary brilliance. He has taken it upon himself to reverse roles and give women favor over the men. In this way, Chaucer is considered as a pioneer. In several of his tales women are aggressive, self-willed, and powerful. Some of Chaucer s male characters are against tradition too. Men in the Chaucer s tales are passive, na ve, and wea...

Characteristic Of Paris In Homer`S Iliad
Paris is one of the main characters in the Iliad; at least he is the one who is responsible for the war, in author s opinion and in mine also. First, one of the most valuable for us, characteristic of Paris we can read in Book 3 (38-57). This is a description of Paris by Hektor - his own brother. Words of hate were said not somewhere in the forest, not to some god or human, but directly to Paris. We can assume that it wasn t the first time when Paris heard it from his brother. We can also unders...

The Clerk's Tale - Biblical Paradox
To formulate any type of argument using the Bible as a reference is challenging, since the Bible is diversely perceived from person to person. These varied perceptions can be results of different translations of the Bible, the cultural background of the reader, or quite simply, a vagueness with which the Bible can lend itself to multiple interpretations. Nevertheless, there are certain topics which are void of much gray area, which are explicitly and consistently outlined by the authors of the v...

Chaucer: Then and Now.
People: Medieval Times vs. Contempory Times The years between 1066 and 1485 are known as the Middles Ages. People in this time period faced many hardships, such as disease, oppression, and corruption. The people also experienced many joys, such as success, wealth, and new found prosperity. The people in present day society, too, undergo the same experiences and share the same feelings of the people of over 500 years ago.

Suspense in Julius Caesar
Shakespeare’s Methods of Suspense In Julius Caesar Shakespeare used many techniques to build suspense in Julius Caesar, but the two events that moved the story the most, the siloqueys by Brutus and the other conspirators and Caesar’s wife’s dream, created the suspense up until Caesar’s assassination.
