We all at one point or another dream. Imagine you are in another place or a another time, the future maybe, even maybe the past where years, days, centuries, minutes all irrelevant if you have imagination. I now dream of a time and place were men have such things as bravery and honor. I now speak of Camolot. The legendary castle wear Merlin the priest, Merlin the magie, and Merlin the wise is supposed to have lived. I am not the only person to dream this dream, many play writers and actors have shared this wonderful trip through time and space to where we may all interpret an event as we see fit. I will now show you who the real Merlin was and whom actors have made him out to be. I will then draw a parallel between the two times. I shall also tell you how merlin him self became part of this dream...
Merlin, a man, or just stories to amuse everyone , myths, legends, or tall tails such as Santa Clause or the Easter bunny. Like the real King Arthur who was (really a 6th century ruler) transported through time to better fit the needs of the populas. The "transporting" begins in and around the 15th century. A man by the name of Thomas Malory felt the extreme need to give France, his country, a hero(s) in a time of great disappear. He felt it necessary to do this because the feudalist time in which he was living in, was slowly dying. He thought that if he could show people how many great hero(s) came out of this time period it would revive and flourish once more. He then turned to history to find such a hero. As needed to remedy the situation he found King Arthur of Britain. Even though a English man or a Britainian, he was said to be the best ruler to date (1500\'s.) Now that King Arthur has been chosen and changed a little to fit in with chivalry, part of feudalism he now needed a teacher. Researching even further he found a Druid priest by the name of Merlin.
Druidism is and was a religion that delt with nature. There temple, church, meeting place, what ever you would like to call it, was a grove or thicket. They made sacrifice of animals and offered wheat, rice, and other grains. It was believe that Druid people were magical or even demons and monsters of some sort. Merlin was (as said before) infact a Druid priest. Merlin was a thinker and a very wise man. It was said that Merlin was the son of a demon, his father was not very popular man so to speak. He was a count and was not loved by his people for his choise of religion. It was also said that he was all knowing and all seeing. For this reason he was choosen and hand picked to be a part in the Legends of King Arthur. He was estimated to have lived some time in the 4 or 500\'s. So now the whole process of transportation has been explained.
Movies have portrayed Merlin in so many ways that I shall only pick a few to share with you. The first film that I shall share and review for you is The Sword in The Stone, a cute and amusing animated story for all ages but never the less it shows a side of Merlin that is not seen any were else. Yes of course it shows the person who uses magic and all that kind of stuff, but he is a comedian, he helps the young King Arthur learn to be a fair ruler and how also to be a well respected man. Even though it is a cartoon it is still a little comical about the part. Merlin uses his magic to turn a bad lady in to a number of silly animals. The real Merlin did not use magic. Nor to the best of any body\'s knowledge did he turn any body into a number of silly animals. This shows that as said in the first paragraph some one just made him out to be from there imagination.

Who Pushed MerlinWho Pushed Merlin The most important and knowledgeable people in history are not born with their talents or contributions.

Did King Arthur ExistDid King Arthur Exist If the name of King Arthur is mentioned, I suppose what comes to mind is not so much one person as a whole array of characters and themes, a montage so to speak. Of course we do think first of the King, the magnificent monarch of a glorified or idealized medieval realm. But we think also of his Queen, of the fair and wayward Guinevere, we think of his enchanter, Merlin, who presided over his birth, who set him on the throne, who established him there in the early and travel

The StonehengeThe Stonehenge The Stonehenge has been one big mystery to the world. No one knows how it got there, who built it, or why it was built. All we can do is wonder. The Stonehenge was built and reconstructed many times starting in about 3200 BC to about 1650 BC. The stones that were used to construct the monument weighed anywhere from 25 to 50 tons apiece, in some cases the stones had to be dragged to the plain from up to 20 miles away. It went through three major phases, the first of which was when

John Wade:John Wade: A Character Study John Wade is by far the most intricate and perplexing character examined throughout the novel In The Lake Of the Woods.

It is this obsession with control and order that lies alongside the central idea of the novel; that John Wade does not really know what happened to his wife. His blackouts and tendency towards s

Sir Launcelot was the most respected knight of King A
