King Arthur Essay Research Paper The uglier

King Arthur Essay, Research Paper

The uglier the truth the truer the friend is a statement that has been

echoed throughout the history of time. In “Camelot”, King Arthur

experienced this quotation first hand. Even though “Camelot” is a

fictional movie, the same situation that befell King Arthur really occurs

in real life to everyday people.

Just by looking at Pellinore, you would not think that he was a

trustworthy man. Dirty, hair uncombed, dingy clothes are all words that

could be used to describe Pellinore’s appearance. But as the old saying

goes “Don’t judge a book by its cover” and you should not judge Pellinore

by his looks. King Arthur had so many “Yes men” in his court, that he

could not depend on them to tell him the truth because they were to

worried jeopardizing their position in the court. However, Pellinore did

not have this problem because he did not have a position to lose.

In Arthur’s heart of hearts, he had a feeling that Lancelot and

Guinevere were having a physical relationship together. Being the honest

and trustworthy man that he was, Arthur refused to believe that his best

friend and his wife, whom he loved to death, would do such a deceitful

thing to him. Pellinore could not stand to see his friend be the center of

rumors. Therefore, he decided to tell Arthur about the dishonesty that was

happening right under. Arthur, still in denial, rejected Pellinore’s

allegation. Only after he was threatened with the prospect of death, did

reluctantly refute his allegation. Arthur only saw the light after he

witness for himself Lancelot and Guinevere’s relationship.

The situation that happened to Arthur, also happens to common

people. My aunt went through a similar predicament when she was in

college. Her roommates boyfriend constantly flirted with her. Tired of

his endless advances, she decided to tell her roommate. Her roommate,

who was also her friend, did not want to believe what she was saying. So

she confronted her boyfriend with the accusation. Of course he denied

it and in addition said that my aunt was the one doing the flirting. The

roommate sided with her boyfriend and did not talk to her for months.

Finally, the roommate saw her boyfriend for who he was. Only after she

caught him cheating for herself.

Out of everybody in King Arthur’s court, only Pellinore came out

and told Arthur about Lancelot’s and Guinevere’s relationship. My aunt

was the sole person to tell her roommate about her boyfriend. Later she

found out that she was not the only one of her roommate’s friends who he

had flirted with. The truth hurts. Instead of believing a truth that will

hurt, people naturally tend to go into denial. But it still takes a real friend

to tell you something that may hurt you now in order for you not being

hurt more in the future. King Arthur and my aunt’s roommate learned

this the hard way. cared about their . In the end they both regretted not

listening to the people who truly cared about them.
