Question:

What does the relationship between Prince Hal and King Henry in Shakespeare's King Henry IV reveal about parent-child relationships?

Answer:

Throughout Shakespeare’s King Henry IV, characters are seen grappling with how to handle the expectations others have set up for them. During this process, the characters sometimes find themselves having a hard time fulfilling both their own desires as well as others. In this play, the relationships experiencing this are mostly between father and son. For example, Prince Hal is trying to find a way to deal with his future as King, and the way he goes about it disappoints King Henry, his father, immensely. King Henry believes Prince Hal is not doing nearly enough and is spending too much time socializing with commoners. The relationship between Prince Hal and King Henry portrays a universal commonality that children have difficulty fulfilling both their own desires as well as those of their parents.

Question:

In Northanger Abbey, how does author Jane Austen reveal that a high social status does not necessarily reflect a favorable moral status?

Answer:

General Tilney, one character from Austen's Northanger Abbey, is generally praised by other characters as being a good man due to his wealth and social influence. However, throughout the novel he is repeatedly shown to be overly critical of his family when in private. Additionally, he becomes more critical of Catherine when he discovers that her wealth is not as immense as he first believed, showing his true colors and reflecting how one's high social status does not necessarily indicate any particularly positive attributes about how they treat others.
