What do you think is the message in King Arthur's story?
Arthur, we know, is a great and popular example of a Romantic Literature hero. The story begins with Arthur ignorant of his birth or of any great future. He gets the sword because he doesn't want to let his brother down, and he is generous throughout. What meaning or interpretation do you make of the story, and does that inspire you in any way?
The person above me is right in that there's a dark side to Arthurian legend. But I think what we can take from it is that the best way to live is with civility. Might doesn't make right.
The recurring episodes in the Arthur legends are how he brought peace, rule of law, and stability to Britain, which at the time was not a unified country but a bunch of warring tribes. Arthur made rules and laws that applied to everyone and were meted out fairly - no more wars. He ushered in an era of Pax Brittania (peace in Britain) that was unprecedented.
I'm not talking about the historical Arthur here, strictly about the legends of Malory, White, etc.

The Scarlet Letter - How does Arthur Dimmesdale change throughout the story?
I need to do a character analysis for Arthur Dimmesdale. What are 6 major ways he changed throughout the book?
Anyone know where I can find pictures of him from this movie?
I won't do your homework for you, but I can point you in the right direction,
In the first place, look at the name of the character..."Dimmsdale." Try to make some associations. Look up the word "dale" in the dictionary, and then try to think about what "Dimmsdale" might mean.
Trace the way the character changes physically in the story. Look at the descriptions of his face, his features and gestures and see how they differ as the story progresses. Then think about what this might be reflecting about how he feels inside.
The language in "The Scarlet Letter" is difficult, but the story itself is really easy to analyze once you read through it, because everything Hawthorne writes is so heavy with symbolism.

The only movie I know of on this subject is "The Sword in the Stone" by Disney.
The book it was taken from is "The Once and Future King" by T. H. White.
The first part of the book is called The Sword in the Stone.
