King Arthur and the knights of the round table

In this, we are told of Arthur's conception when Uther approached Igraine who was made, by Merlin's sorcery, to resemble her husband. The child was given to Ector to be raised in secret. After Uther's death there was no king ruling all England. Merlin had placed a sword in a stone, saying that whoever drew it out would be king. Arthur did so and Merlin had him crowned. This led to a rebellion be eleven rulers which Arthur put down. He married Guinevere whose father gave him the Round Table as a dowry; it became the place where his knights sat, to avoid quarrels over precedence.

Who was King Arthur

The figure of Arthur begins as a war hero, the praises of whom are sung in war poems by the Celts and the Welsh. Y Gododdin celebrates one particularly brave warrior, then says he "was no Arthur." The Triads are full of wonderful, courageous things Arthur did. The most important early source for Arthur's deeds is Historia Brittonum, written by the monk Nennius in the 9th century. Nennius calls Arthur dux bellorum and tells us of 12 great battles Arthur fought. Although Nennius tells us the location of each battle, those locations are hard to come by these days. Scholars are still arguing over the locations. Even the agreed-on locations suggest that Arthur got around--literally--from Scotland to the lowlands of Wessex to Wales.

Famous american and british universities - atestat engleza

My paper has the title “Famous American and British Universities” and it focuses upon the similarities and differences between these 4 universities from England and the United States of America. I chose this title because, even if it does not contain the names of the universities, it is suggestive and very clear.

The research for my paper has provided me with better knowledge of and insight into how a good educational system functions. After this study, I know that the main difference between a Romanian university and an English or American one is given by the educational system, because the Romanian teachers are not inferior to other teachers. For example, Titu Andreescu is the director of the Mathematical Association of America, although he is not the best Romanian mathematician.

Strategies in the contest between lawyer and witness

Strategies in the contest between lawyer and witness
The witnesses’ testimonies can either make or break the case being presented. Testimony is not the only type of evidence – documents, photographs and many other kinds of proof are equally acceptable – but it remains extremely important. It is the lawyer’s job to prove the facts of the story alleged in the complaint. In most cases, the lawyer’s objective is to discredit opposition witnesses and minimize the impact of their testimony. There are many cases in which the defense lawyer has no prove and he must discredit the plaintiff’s witnesses through cross-examination. And it is in such contexts that lawyers make maximal use of their linguistic power accorded to them.

The Life and Work of William Shakespeare

Viewed from this fresh perspective, Shakespeare's tragic drama of the "star-crossed" young lovers is seen to be an extraordinary work. Indeed, Romeo and Juliet was an experimental stage piece at the time of its composition, featuring several radical departures from long-standing conventions. These innovative aspects of the play, moreover, reinforce and embellish its principal themes.

Explorations in Arthurian Legends

As the legend writers searched for deeper meanings, they found the Holy Grail; with it, they found it sin. Arthur was said to have conceived a son out of wedlock; Guinevere was said to have consummated her affair with Lancelot. Both of these acts were sins. With the Holy Grail the symbol of true knightly goodness, the picture of Arthur as all that is good and right was weakened; so, too, with Arthur's failure to eradicate the adultery in his midst. The idea, which had been building for a while, that his rule was intertwined with the fate of the country was shaken to its core.

Tabla de sah Eurasiatica

Tabla de sah Eurasiatica
La sudul acestui mare platou central-eurasiatic se afla o regiune anarhica din punct de vedere politic ,dar bogata in energie si care ar putea fi de mare importanta pentru statele occidentale si orientale eurasiatice,deopotriva,incluzand,in zona sa extreme-sudica,un foarte dens populat aspirant la hegenomie regionala. Eurasia ,aceasta tabla de sah uriasa si de o forma ciudata –care se intinde de la Lisabona la Vladivostok-este decorul in care se desfasoara ,,jocul,,.Daca Spatiul de mijloc poate fi treptat atras in crescanda orbita de influenta e Vestului(unde influenta Americana este preponderenta),daca Sudul nu este supus dominatiei unui singur jucator si daca Estul nu se unifica intr-un mod care sa determine alungarea Americii din bazele sale de pe coasta,atunci se poate spune ca America isi atinge tinta.
