King arthur legend

King Arthur

From the very beginnings of the English language there have been legends of great heroes. From the first settlements of Britain come stories rooted in ancient Celtic and Germanic imagination. Out of these stories, certain figures enjoy pre-eminence as the strongest, the bravest and the best. King Arthur is one such hero, known perhaps over all other mythical medieval figures as a chivalrous knight, a powerful warrior and a just and intelligent leader.

Who was King Arthur

The legends tell us that Arthur was a wise and powerful king, who ruled from a giant and glorious castle and who commanded the loyalty of hundreds of men.
First and foremost of these followers were the Knights of the Round Table. That the greatest knight in skill of arms, Lancelot, pledged his loyalty to Arthur is testament to the fact that the king was worthy of such admiration, both as a king and as a warrior.
For war was a way of life in Arthur's day. Just after he pulled the Sword from the Stone, he hurried to Bedegraine and defeated a rogue band of 11 powerful men who had rebelled against his leadership.
He faced constant pressure from the Saxons and the Picts and the Irish and (according to Malory, who got it from Geoffrey) the Romans; in the end, he faced a mortal threat from his own men.
He was also the backdrop against which many other advenures took place. Beginning with Chretien de Troyes, writers wrote adventures of Arthur's knights, telling us of their wonderful adventures ...

Shakespeare`s King Lear

Besides, the plot line, involving two older men and their respective family problems, is only a small part of the play. King Lear is about much, much more and undoubtedly reflects deeper concerns that Shakespeare had developed in his already considerable experience as a playwright.

By the time he wrote King Lear, this adventurous young man from Stratford had led a remarkable life, even for Elizabethan times, which we tend to think of as more exciting than our own. During the reign of Elizabeth I, England experienced a period of relative stability and, more important, prosperity. All the arts flourished, but the growth of drama was nothing short of phenomenal. At the zenith of Elizabeth’s power and influence, William Shakespeare came to London and wrote the 37 plays that have established him as the greatest playwright in the English language.

How did it all begin? What purpose drove him to produce this incredible body of work? Where did his inspiration come from? There are many ...

Charles Baudelaire et Jean Arthur Rimbaud

Le Poete est semblable au prince des nuees
Qui hante la tempete et se rit de l’archer;
Exile sur le sol au milieu des huees;
Ses ailes de geant l’empachent de marcher.

Legendele olimpului

Mitologia grecilor este extrem de bogata pentru ca la crearea nenumaratelor figuri de zei semizei, eroi, a contribuit imaginatia mai multor generatii si a mai multor oameni de talent. Dar cauza principala a multimii miturilor o constituie multitudinea fenomenelor naturii si a diferitelor aspecte ale acestor fenomene. Luaind ca pilda marea observam ca strabunii indepartati ai grecilor, de pe vremea lui Pericle, au pus stapan peste intinsele ape pe Poseidon. Dar in mare in imaginatia grecilor mai locuiau: Amfitria, sotia lui Poseidon; Nereu, fiul lui Poseidon; Nereidele, fiicele lui Nereu; Tetis, o alta divinitate a marii; Triton, fiul lui Poseidon sau al lui Nereu etc.

In conceptia vechilor greci, zeii nu traiau izolati de muritori, ci se amestecau in viata lor, aducandu-le fericire sau nenorocire. De aceea in viata zeilor se reflecta multe din fenomenele vietii sociale a grecilor. Astfel, Ares era zeul razboiului, zeita Hera proteja casnicia, Hermes era protectorul negustorilor, ...

Hestiei i – a dat focul, Demetra a luat bogăţia holdelor şi livezilor iar Hera, cea mai sfioasă dintre ele a devenit soţia lui Zeus.

Hanu-Ancutei - loc de legenda si popas

Hanul este plasat la rascruce de drumuri si de veacuri, fiind un loc
arhaic, mitic, desprins din vremea veche. De atunci, însa nu s-au
schimbat multe în rolul hanului. El reprezintă o adevarată fortareată,
unde oamenii se izolează de cotidian în spatele zidului legendelor.
Aici se face schimb de informatie si de folclor. Oamenii sunt aceiasi,
ei au mai fost aici, iar o forta necunoscută îi atrage spre acest loc,
unde se delectează cu povestiri, pui fript rudimentar si vin, ca
practicantii unui adevarat cult. Acesti nu sunt adăpostiti nu numai
fizic, dar si moral.
