Becoming a Knight
Becoming a Knight During the middle ages, in order to become a knight one had to go through many years of training. A knight-to-be spent at least fourteen years of his life learning the proper conduct and etiquette of knighthood. Once the years of training were completed, often an elaborate ceremony took place when the gentleman was knighted. Once knighted, the man had to live by the code of chivalry. This code had the basic guidelines of a knight's behavior. This code was so respected that abi

The Squire's tale ends two lines into its third section, and following this abrupt termination is the wordes of the Frankeleyn to the Squier. The Franklin praises the young Squire's attempt at a courtly romance and says that he wishes his own son was more like the Squire. This is followed by the wordes of the Hoost to the Frankeleyn. Many critics believe that the words of the Franklin to the Squire are intended as an interruption of the tale that threatens to go on far too long. However, I

Paradise Lost: Milton's Approach To Lust, Sex, and Violence There is no reason to apply modern theories to Milton if we do not care whether Milton remains alive. However, if we wish him to be more than a historical artifact, we must do more than just study him against the background of his time. We must reinterpret him in light of the germane thought of our own age. -James Driscoll The Unfolding God Of Jung and Milton Images and allusions to sex and death are intermingled throughout John Milton

Like some great book that is slowly loosing its pages, you begin with an entire novel full of details and descriptions and, if you’re not careful, you end up with nothing more than the cover and the brief synopsis on the back page.

Arthurian Legend is a group of stories of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table. The legends originated as a collection of folk tales passed down by oral tradition. As the stories spread through Europe different scenes as well as different versions appear in different countries. Consequently some of the stories have minor contradictions with each other. However, even though the story has been modified on several occasions, the same basic stories of adventure, romance, combat, betrayal,

Have you ever played Paintball? Then you defiantly missed a lot of stuff. Paintball is about the coolest sport I know of. There is a lot of rumors about it. Some people say it's bad and violent and it's supposed to glorify war. But the truth is, none of those lies are true. Paintball is a team game, it takes a lot of effort to succeed. Teamwork is one of the most important words. The fact that you play paintball with equipment that looks warlike is the only connection reminding of guns and war.

An act of violence can be as small as a threat, but nevertheless it is one of the most common aspects of life. Violence has existed as long as people have been on Earth. The first acts of violence were hunting. Hunting provided a food source before people learned how to cultivate the land. The focus of violence shifted from hunting

William Thompson of the University of Nevada (1994) describes politicians by stating, “It’s part of the American landscape, they’ll trade morality for dollars” (1). In North and South Carolina, for example, the last governor election showed that the people were for legal gambling by voting in governors who wanted a lottery. Now in

Introduction Basketball is an athletic sport, usually played on an indoor court in which two competing teams of five players each attempt to score by throwing an inflated ball so that it descends through one of two baskets suspended, at each end of the court, above their heads. The team scoring the most such throws, through field goals or foul shots, wins the game. Because of its continuous action and frequent scoring, basketball is one of the most popular spectator as well as participant sport

However, very little has been written or said about why the Aztecs carried out these acts, which have always seemed so gruesome and cruel to outsiders.
