The Leadership Styles of General Robert E. Lee and General...
The leadership styles of General Robert E. Lee and General Grant during the Civil War. Ulysses S.
Grant was not as well known at the start of the Civil War as Robert E. Lee but proved to be just as
valuable during the war. As a soldier, Grant believed, "When in doubt, fight." And he did fight. He
won fame for demanding unconditional (complete) surrender from the Southern commanders he was
fighting. In fact, people in the North began saying Grant's initials, "U.S.," stood for "Unconditional
Surrender." In battle, Grant was tough and hard. He was not "a retreating man." Soon Grant was
made a general. He became a leading figure of the war in the West. In 1863 he captured the city of
Vicksburg, Mississippi. He starved the city into surrender. ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net
...
As a rule, West Point–trained generals held citizen soldiers and officers in low regard. Not Lee; he
understood those whom he led, he appreciated their sacrifices for what they believed in, and adapted
his leadership to suit them. The Army of Northern Virginia was a collection of citizen soldiers from
the various Confederate states, not a professional army of career soldiers. Southerners of the
nineteenth century, and indeed most Americans at the time, held intensely local sympathies;
loyalties to community and state were usually more important than conceptions of American
patriotism. Grant perceived one strategic imperative: A focus on the enemy's armies through
maneuver and offensive action. Lincoln agreed with Grant in this respect, but he also operated under
a second strategic imperative. Faced with this opposition, Grant used dialogue and negotiation to get
his essential point across where his predecessors had failed. Grant did this by employing integrative,
or collaborative, bargaining, an approach that uses shared interests and cooperation to arrive at a
satisfactory outcome. Grant and Lincoln agreed on the end result they desired, and they really did
agree on the overall approach –– just not on the specific question of a line of operation. Grant was
able to convince Lincoln of the soundness of his overall plan, and as a result, he got much of it
implemented. Grant was at his best as a strategic leader because he

Analysis Of The Medieval Laws Of Chivalry In Ivanhoe
Sir Walter Scott's book Ivanhoe encompasses, as critic Ragussis says, "...the primarily aesthetic
nature of Romantic medievalism" (Ragussis 89)[ Michael Ragussis, Figures of Conversion: 'The
Jewish Question' and English National Identity, Duke University Press, 1995, Ch.3]. In other words,
Sir Walter Scott wrote a great piece of literary work about a society in which the laws of chivalry
reigned supreme. By the end of this literary Romance, the reader conjectures that the protagonist,
Ivanhoe, has the choice of choosing either Rowena or Rebecca for his bride. Just by considering the
women as for whether they are the "right woman" for Ivanhoe leaves both Rowena and Rebecca
matched, with a slight inclination towards Rebecca. However, if we consider the rules of medieval
chivalry, we instantly comprehend that Rowena is the right woman for Ivanhoe. In this literary
analysis, I will first explain how Rowena and Rebecca happen to be matched in just view of their
person. Then I will clarify the medieval laws of chivalry and how it pertains to the topic. By the end
of the paper, I hope to elucidate why Rowena was the right woman. The points I will use to compare
the person of Rowena and Rebecca are the historical, the political, their looks, their character, and
their virtue. Historically it was frowned upon if a Christian married a Jew. This was due to the
prevalence of Anti–Semitism in the medieval Christian life. A mixed marriage of this sort would
only be tolerated if the Jew

Examples Of Hunger In Night By Elie Wiesel
Hunger made Elie and his father only closer, but everyone has to eat. The quote is after Elie and his
father ran more than 20 kilometers from Auschwitz to an abandoned village. Being hungry, thirsty,
and especially exhausted would be the only things a person would think if they had done the march
while hungry and thirsty. But Elie comes said that quote to prove the strength of the bond between
him and his father. Another time in which the prisoners marched was running to Gleiwitz. They
stayed there for three days with no food or water, the prisoners were moved into roofless cattle cars,
almost 100 people in a car. The prisoners were handed the usual ration before getting on the train
and ate snow in order to quench their thirst. Many of the prisoners are all in a condition not fit
enough to make a march, but there was something pushing those people to keep on surviving. Elie
had witnessed another father and son in the group, however they did not have a bond like his.
Starvation drives people to their limits sometimes and cannot handle themselves. Meir was beating
up his own father for some crumbs of bread, meanwhile the father is pleading with his son to not kill
him, "Meir, my little Meir! Don't you recognize me... you're killing your father... I have bread... for
you too... for you too..." (Wiesel 101). Then, he searched his father's body just for the crumbs,
however other prisoners jumped on top of Meir, looking for the same miniscule crumbs. For Elie, he
dreamed about soup and

The Leadership Styles Of General Robert E. Lee And General...

  • 1. The Leadership Styles of General Robert E. Lee and General... The leadership styles of General Robert E. Lee and General Grant during the Civil War. Ulysses S. Grant was not as well known at the start of the Civil War as Robert E. Lee but proved to be just as valuable during the war. As a soldier, Grant believed, "When in doubt, fight." And he did fight. He won fame for demanding unconditional (complete) surrender from the Southern commanders he was fighting. In fact, people in the North began saying Grant's initials, "U.S.," stood for "Unconditional Surrender." In battle, Grant was tough and hard. He was not "a retreating man." Soon Grant was made a general. He became a leading figure of the war in the West. In 1863 he captured the city of Vicksburg, Mississippi. He starved the city into surrender. ...

The Army of Northern Virginia was a collection of citizen soldiers from the various Confederate states, not a professional army of career soldiers. Southerners of the nineteenth century, and indeed most Americans at the time, held intensely local sympathies; loyalties to community and state were usually more important than conceptions of American patriotism. Grant perceived one strategic imperative: A focus on the enemy's armies through maneuver and offensive action. Lincoln agreed with Grant in this respect, but he also operated under a second strategic imperative. Faced with this opposition, Grant used dialogue and negotiation to get his essential point across where his predecessors had failed. Grant did this by employing integrative, or collaborative, bargaining, an approach that uses shared interests and cooperation to arrive at a satisfactory outcome. Grant and Lincoln agreed on the end result they desired, and they really did agree on the overall approach –– just not on the specific question of a line of operation. Grant was able to convince Lincoln of the soundness of his overall plan, and as a result, he got much of it implemented. Grant was at his best as a strategic leader because he ...

  • 3. Analysis Of The Medieval Laws Of Chivalry In Ivanhoe Sir Walter Scott's book Ivanhoe encompasses, as critic Ragussis says, "...the primarily aesthetic nature of Romantic medievalism" (Ragussis 89)[ Michael Ragussis, Figures of Conversion: 'The Jewish Question' and English National Identity, Duke University Press, 1995, Ch.3]. In other words, Sir Walter Scott wrote a great piece of literary work about a society in which the laws of chivalry reigned supreme. By the end of this literary Romance, the reader conjectures that the protagonist, Ivanhoe, has the choice of choosing either Rowena or Rebecca for his bride. Just by considering the women as for whether they are the "right woman" for Ivanhoe leaves both Rowena and Rebecca matched, with a slight inclination towards Rebecca. However, if we consider the rules of medieval chivalry, we instantly comprehend that Rowena is the right woman for Ivanhoe. In this literary analysis, I will first explain how Rowena and Rebecca happen to be matched in just view of their person. Then I will clarify the medieval laws of chivalry and how it pertains to the topic. By the end of the paper, I hope to elucidate why Rowena was the right woman. The points I will use to compare the person of Rowena and Rebecca are the historical, the political, their looks, their character, and their virtue. Historically it was frowned upon if a Christian married a Jew. This was due to the prevalence of Anti–Semitism in the medieval Christian life. A mixed marriage of this sort would only be tolerated if the Jew ... Get more on HelpWriting.net ...
  • 5. Examples Of Hunger In Night By Elie Wiesel Hunger made Elie and his father only closer, but everyone has to eat. The quote is after Elie and his father ran more than 20 kilometers from Auschwitz to an abandoned village. Being hungry, thirsty, and especially exhausted would be the only things a person would think if they had done the march while hungry and thirsty. But Elie comes said that quote to prove the strength of the bond between him and his father. Another time in which the prisoners marched was running to Gleiwitz. They stayed there for three days with no food or water, the prisoners were moved into roofless cattle cars, almost 100 people in a car. The prisoners were handed the usual ration before getting on the train and ate snow in order to quench their thirst. Many of the prisoners are all in a condition not fit enough to make a march, but there was something pushing those people to keep on surviving. Elie had witnessed another father and son in the group, however they did not have a bond like his. Starvation drives people to their limits sometimes and cannot handle themselves. Meir was beating up his own father for some crumbs of bread, meanwhile the father is pleading with his son to not kill him, "Meir, my little Meir! Don't you recognize me... you're killing your father... I have bread... for you too... for you too..." (Wiesel 101). Then, he searched his father's body just for the crumbs, however other prisoners jumped on top of Meir, looking for the same miniscule crumbs. For Elie, he dreamed about soup and ...

In the beginning of the book, the main character Tally and her best friend Shay live in a city where everyone is given an operation to turn "pretty" at the age of 16 . Shay and Tally have a strong relationship and hoverboarding is one of the main links between the two. But when Shay tells Tally that she is leaving because she doesn't want to turn pretty, Tally refuses to leave with her because of her lifelong dream to turn pretty.

This evidence shows how the normal people that didn't resist their government and became pretty are enjoying themselves and having a great time. While this theme does support what's going on early in the book, later in the book Tally finds out that turning pretty isn't as great as it's told to be. In the text on page 268 it state's that,"Becoming pretty doesn't just change the way you look," she said. "No, David " said. "It changes the way you think".This part of the story proves the counterclaim incorrect.

  • 9. The Between Camp Four And The Summit Many factors contributed to the bottlenecks between Camp Four and the summit, including: The fact that no Sherpas left ahead of the climbers to fix ropes to aid in climbing above the Balcony, which left the climbers waiting while Beidleman, a guide, fixed the ropes; the Taiwanese team, who were climbing very slowly and all together, making it impossible to pass them, therefore creating delays for the climbers behind them; and the fact that once the ascent had begun, Hall's Sherpas were not eager to assist in fixing the ropes, presumably because they were angry that Fischer's Sherpas were not sharing the workload as had been originally planned. Krakauer was critical of Boukreev in this section of the climb because Boukreev was not using supplemental oxygen or a backpack, both of which Krakauer felt he should have had in the case of an emergency, as Boukreev was a guide, and charged with helping and protecting the clients, an ability which Krakauer thought was inhibited by this lack of oxygen and supplies, especially considering how much the high altitude and thin air affects the ability to think clearly. Just before reaching the summit, despite the fact that he was having difficulty breathing, Krakauer was actually quite calm but disoriented, and relatively excited about the prospect of reaching the summit. However, at the moment of his summit, he did not feel the elation that he expected, but rather apprehension and dread about what he knew to be a difficult descent. Chapter ...

  • 11. Conflict In A Tale Of Two Cities By Charles Dickens And... As with any historical fiction of work of literature, conflict is a neccesary element in a novel. It is mainly used to build plot and suspense. A Tale of Two Cities written by Charles Dickens and Ivanhoe by Sir Walter Scott are both good examples of novels in which conflicts between play an important role and in this novel it is mainly the struggles between social groups which are of big importance. There are a lot of differences but also similarities concerning the points of view of the narrators on the struggles between the social groups. In this essay I will discuss these differences and similarities between the opinions of Sir Walter Scott and Charles Dickens on social conflicts. Dickens used the development of a conflict between the French lower class and the French government and aristocracy to build plot and suspense. The nobility (the government and aristocracy) is extremely rich and the French lower class are exactly the opposite, very poor. The French lower class suffered for a long time under the tight rulings and restraints of the French government and aristocracy. The lives of ignorant French poor people are described by Charles Dickens as horrendous: "And who among the company at Monsignor's reception in that seventeen hundred and eightieth year of our Lord, coud possibly doubt, that a system rooted in a frizzled hangman, powdered and gold–laced, pumped, and white–silk stockinet, would see the very stars out!"

  • 13. The Power Of Speech In Jane Austen's Persuasion At face value, Anne's speech in the published ending of Jane Austen's Persuasion seems to not quite follow with her quiet nature throughout most of the book. In the original unpublished conclusion to this book, Anne retains her standard silence that is her signature characteristic. However, with a modest amount of studying one will find Anne's remaining silent would not follow suit with her character's progression through the story. The reason though for her continued growth towards comfort in speech I believe to be directly tied to her continued growth back towards Captain Wentworth. Reading through this book we become accustomed to Anne being the silent character, leading us to feel like something is wrong when she begins to speak more and more. Due to this we are naturally drawn to question why Anne is speaking so much. More than this we must wonder, why Anne did not speak before this point? Throughout this book we are given enough information to see that Anne speaks much less in comparison to all the other characters, however we are never given anything to say why she is this way. One possible explanation that we find in Chapter 1 is this description of her relationship with her father and sisters, "–her word had no weight; her convenience was always to give way; – she was only Anne." (Austen, 1817) This seems like quite enough to keep someone from speaking up as much, knowing that they would always get automatically shut down for being considered "only Anne". This seems like a strange way for Anne's own family to treat her. Given, Sir Walter is not known for being the father of the year, but he at least treats his other two daughters with some form of fatherly love. The flaw in this though is that in the very last published chapter it is said that "Sir Walter, indeed, though he had no affection for Anne, and no vanity flattered, to make him really happy on the occasion, was very far from thinking it a bad match for her." It is clearly stated that Sir Walter did not even have any affection towards his daughter Anne. This all lets us deny the idea of Sir Walter's view of his daughter affecting her reason for silence. The next possibility would be in her own sister's treatment of Anne. We see in the last ... Get more on HelpWriting.net ...
  • 15. Ridley Scott's Use of Mise-en-Scene to Convey Atmosphere... "There was a dream that was Rome. You could only whisper it. Anything more than a whisper and it would vanish, it was so fragile." The film 'Gladiator' was released in 2000. A thrilling action film, it was a huge success, scooping five Oscars and earning over $427 million dollars. Sir Ridley Scott– who directed the film–already had many great films to his name, such as 'Alien', 'Blade Runner' and 'American Gangster', so it was no surprise when this film became one of the highest earners of the year 2000.

There is a close up of his face, which allows the viewer to see every emotion, which adds an essence of vulnerability to a character that is more often than not, perceived as the complete opposite. It is also used to emphasise the fact that Maximus is the character the film will be based around. Following the close up, there is a shot of a robin sitting on the branch of a tree, after a short while it flies away, perhaps sensing danger. The shot is then back to Maximus, who is smiling sadly, possibly at the thought of the robin being able to fly away from it all, when he can't. The way that mise–en–scene has been used to depict a slight fear in the character of Maximus, adds contrast to his personality, which in turn adds depth, leaving the audience feeling able to connect to him. The music in this scene makes it almost haunting as it creates a calm yet uneasy atmosphere. Maximus is wearing gold in this which, not only continues the theme of gold, but also represents his authority. The combination of this strong, powerful figure being slightly fearful at what lies ahead, adds to the uneasy atmosphere. The lighting in the sequence is also a lot darker than the previous which adds to the implication that the atmosphere is about to change, this along with the non–diegetic sounds like the wind blowing and the distant sound of birds, help create a really dramatic, prominent sequence which leads on ...

  • 17. Religious Symbolism In The Film 'Blade Runner' Running from Reality Blade Runner is a film directed by Ridley Scott which is bursting with symbolism. Throughout the movie it is able to demonstrate one fundamental question – what makes us human?

One group in particular which play a momentous role in the film are those symbols which relate strongly to religion. Within the film there are symbols that are obvious to spot, while some stay hidden.

  • 19. Compare And Contrast The Passionate Shepherd To His Love The Idealist and the Realist are two rather different types of people. One sees the world in an optimistic light, where the flowers seemingly always bloom and summer is ever–lasting, while the other sees the world as a skeptic and sees that all happiness at some point comes to an end. Within the poems "The Passionate Shepherd to his love" and "The Nymph's Reply to the Shepherd" we see these two types of people interact with one and another through letters as one expresses his love and the other rejects it. We see how the Shepherd views the world and the blossoming of love and we see the Nymph's view of the world and her skeptical view on love. The story of these two poems start with the declaration of love from the Shepherd within "The Passionate Shepherd to his love," with the first line of the poem being "Come live with me, and be my love" yet what is his view on love? Well the Shepherd within his poem to the Nymph, says that he'd give her gifts like "A cap of flowers and a kirtle"(Line 11, Shepherd) to her. Those aren't the only gifts either he even promises her a "Gown made of the finest wool"(Line 13, Shepard), and also some "Delights" such as other Shepherds singing and dancing for them(Line 21, Shepherd). The Shepherd seems to view that love is not moved by who one is, but rather by bribes and entertainment which are different from the Nymph's own views.

Wal–Mart's stance on not allowing unions can also be accredited to their cost leadership approach. When I outline Wal–Mart's business policy at the start of this essay, I suggest that they were a central–control based organisation that tried to ensure it controlled all aspects of the firm. This is linked to cost leadership, by having tight control they know exactly where money is going and where it is coming from which allows for better development of efficiency. This notion of control is especially noticeable on their management of employees, for example through such action as cutting hours, understaffing, minimum wage levels and stopping overtime.

When Lincoln interacted with Scott, he showed a deference for Scott's age and knowledge. Thus allowing Scott to share his skills, this humility was shored by General McClellan. Lincoln later changes his approach towards McClellan, trying to boost his confidence and courage. Williams continually shows McClellan as an egotist, who eventually replaced Scott as General in chief. McClellan is depicted as unsure, indecisive, self–centered and fearful of declaring war. Lincoln continually defends McClellan but is not afraid of tactfully sending criticism his way. One could easily be lead to believe that Lincoln was more of a placator. Williams shows us that Lincoln never hesitated in making difficult decisions based on results. Lincoln's people skills are easily ascertained in Williams writings. Lincoln seems keen at applying pressure as well as giving his generals a free hand when necessary. Williams shows an interesting side of Lincoln's patience that wears thin when there are no early victories and from the lack of aggressiveness on the Union side. Williams shows a gradual transformation on Lincoln's selection process. Initially each general was selected on characteristics such as battle experience and political backing.

At the age of twenty–seven, Anne Elliot; a mediocre maiden mistreated by those closest to her, lost the bloom of youth and more importantly, the love of her life. Eight years had passed since she was persuaded by her narcissistic family to terminate her engagement to Frederick Wentworth, a gallant naval captain born of low social status and insufficient wealth. When they meet again, both have changed significantly. But amidst flirtatious distractions and unexpected misadventures, the pair cannot deny the conjoined heartache and love they felt exclusively for each other, despite the misfortunes of life. Persuasion, written by Austen in her final days and published in 1817, is a novel possessing a timelessness and raw nature which reflects early 19th century Britain in a way that resonates with current modernistic society, thus justifying its inclusion in the Literary Canon. ...

  • 51. Ragtime by E.L. Doctorow Throughout the past couple of centuries the human narrative has been increasingly presented in terms of acceleration in a phenomenon testifying to what can be termed "the ecstasy of speed." Novels tend to create societal themes and expressions of progress that change and explode within texts. Uses of world and historical acceleration are overarchingly some of the most easily arrived at examples of "the ectasy of speed." E.L. Doctorow's novel Ragtime, which has been adapted into a stage production as well, stands as an example of precisely this sort of text. There is the question of the association of the cultural, historical, and fictional characteristics of Ragtime that critic Brian Roberts has called the "central metaphor" of the novel. When put together with the cohesive historical narrative within the novel, the discussion reveals the ways in which Doctorow uses Ragtime to perform a work that mirrors the ups and downs of the classic ragtime style of music. Doctorow does this through the introduction of a distinctive way of reading history which is vitally deconstructive and politically charged. When a curious soul looks for critical material available on Ragtime they are sure to find materials that focus on the relationship between the form and the theme of the novel at its core. The novel can be characterized as historical fiction. Although it takes on the style of historical fiction it ultimately challenges what the reader believes to be true about history and ...

This is while Tally is trying to decide whether she wants to tell the Specials where Shay is, and turn pretty, or keep Shay's location a secret, and stay ugly for life. Therefore, the statement " Tally had it now, an excuse to break her vow. She'd made that promise to Peris, just as real, before she'd ever met Shay. She had known him for years, and Shay for only a few months" shows that Tally has decided she would rather keep her promise to Peris other than Shay (Westerfeld ) .

The novel was based on the idea of marriage and how it was affected by the society. A major idea that was shown in Jane's novel was the idea behind how certain physical appearances really hid how a person's real character is. It is clearly shown in the way Elizabeth was misguided with Mr. Darcy's and Mr. Wickham's appearance on how their Internal character really is as mentioned in the article "Pride and Prejudice: Appearance vs. Reality". By the time most of the novel's events are over Elizabeth comes to a decision that her primary impact on both Mr. Darcy and Mr. Wickham were incorrect.

In Alien, a film directed by Ridley Scott in 1979, a crew boards the Nostromos to explore a distress signal. However, once an alien is brought onboard, the crew struggles for their individual survival. There is a constant juxtaposition between the organic and inorganic, and the organic is often heavily associated with the abject, which entails messiness and even violence. Beauty refers to the visual aesthetics in the film, as well as pure, inner qualities of an organism. Organicity is defined as organisms that appear in their most raw form, are unaltered by social constructs, or has the ability to think. The main theme of the abject is put in conversation with gender and technology in order to understand the complexity of both beautiful and repulsive portrayals of organicity. Although organicity often has a repulsive connotation in Alien, the instances in which they are beautiful teaches us to embrace the abject. The moments of beauty found in organicity offers viewers an opportunity to change their perception of the abject. Towards the end of the movie, when Ripley thought she was alone on the shuttle, she began taking off her clothes.

In this particular novel, most is based on character Anne Elliots love life, "she had been too dependent on time alone; no aid had been given in change of place," (Austen 109). Persuasion, like Austen's other novels, was praised for its realistic depiction of character and society in the time written. In her introduction to the Signet publication, Margaret Drabble praises its "strong anti–romantic tendencies, its unexpected generosities, and its welcoming of the possibility of a new order." (World Literature Criticism). These scholars have helped cement the novel's reputation as a literary classic. Adding on, its romance parts create a strong base of the mood of the story. In Chapter seven, Anne Elliot describes, "actually looking round, ready to fall in love with all the speed which a clear head and quick taste could allow," (Austen 154). She had no change of thought in who she wanted throughout the entire novel. In life, she is referring to how it looks to be rather than how it actually is in the many ups and downs you go through before finding "your true love."

  • 69. Character Analysis Of Ivanhoe Michael Josephson once stated, " People of character do the right thing even if no one else does, not because they think it will change the world but because they refuse to be changed by the world." (whatwillmatter.com) Character is defined as the mental and moral qualities distinctive to an individual. It is what defines you and how you act, even when nobody is around. In Ivanhoe, by Sir Walter Scott, many characters play a key role throughout the story. They all have extremely unique personalities and each of them are gifted with different talents and abilities. Some of the characters are gifted in fighting, while others are gifted in elegance or beauty. I have become very fond of several of the characters in Ivanhoe, such as: The Black Knight, Ivanhoe, Rowena, Locksley, and Rebecca. However, I admire Rebecca's character the most. Rebecca had a large role in the book, which was impressive for a woman during this time. Many loved her because she was attractive and well educated. Rebecca was described as, "endowed with knowledge as with beauty" ( Scott 284). Her father, Isaac of York, was a Jewish man. Therefore, she participated in many of the Jewish traditions and was steadfast in her beliefs. Although Rebecca's father was a greedy coward, Rebecca appeared to be a stunning young lady that possessed characteristics of generosity, courage, and love. When she was threatened with violence, or shamed for her religion, she responded with humble boldness. Rebecca's bold character often showed when she always tried to do the right thing. I admire Rebecca the most because of her selfless, beautiful, and faithful character. Rebecca's selflessness presented itself through her adoration of medicine and willingness to heal those in need. She even gave medical treatment to a poor man for free because she did not care for riches. She cared for the needs of others. At the tournament of Ashby– de– la Zouche, Ivanhoe was terribly injured from falling off his horse. He was immediately taken into the care of Rebecca. She put Ivanhoe before herself and cared for his injuries, despite the consequence. While Rebecca was tending to Ivanhoe's wounds, she fell in love with him.

Each noble classified his land into different divisions which would be administered by vassals or nobles of a lower standing. These vassals paid rent to their overlords and supplied them with men to fight their battles. Under these vassals were Anglo–Saxons who had not managed to retain their lands and surfs who served the noble and did their menial tasks. Apart from this there were Franklins who had managed to retain their lands and not bow under the pressure from the Normans. Cedric the Saxon was such an Anglo–Saxon. Scott poses a contradiction of sorts regarding the class structure in society. He protest the feudal system in which the Norman overlords oppress and exploit those under them, especially the Anglo–Saxons and force the Franklins to come under their rule. At the same time we see that Franklins like Cedric the Saxon and Athelstan profit from this system and enjoy having thralls or slaves under them. "Gurth, the son of Beowulph is the born thrall of Cedric if Rotherwood." Another part of the class structure is the position of women, because at the end of the tournament, in the pageant Prince John hold, it seems that a women is only take into consideration because of their beauty.
