Mean girls/ Julius Caesar Comparative Essay In the movie Mean Girls by Tina Fey and the play Julius Caesar by William Shakespeare there are many motifs. I will be specifically looking at motifs of betrayal from both stories that illustrate the theme “you have to be careful who you trust”. In the movie Mean Girls the main character Cady becomes very good friends with Regina George. Later in the movie Regina lies to Cady by telling her that she is going to hook Cady up with a boy, when really, Regina is trying to get with that same boy. Another example of betrayal in the movie Mean Girls would be when Cady gets all of Regina’s good friends to turn against her.
Every villain has a reason to why they become wicked in the first place. The Evil Queen makes many appearances in different stories for example the show Once Upon a Time or basically anything Disney related. The Evil Queen wasn’t always as bitter as she is commonly known for. It’s impossible for someone to just be born angry and bitter, something had to cause it.

Character Analysis Till We Have Faces, written by C.S. Lewis, is a novel based on the Greek legend of Psyche and Cupid.

“the two older sisters were very vein and cruel…[they made the girl do all the house work and charred her face] pg.” The story really shocked me. I thought that the girl would become beautiful like in the other Cinderella stories but, I was wrong.

Even though, the girl’s face was burnt the invisible man looked past that and saw her for her.
Circe had invited Odyseeus’s crew into her home, she filled their bowls with a wonderful stew but “Once they’d drained the bowls she filled, suddenly she struck with her wand, drove them into her pigsties, all of them bristling into swine” (Homer 237, 261-263). This shows that Circe was more worried about playing scrabble with men and turning them into animals than respecting the code of hospitality. Even when she offers hospitality in the end, she still has the motive of playing scrabble with Odysseus, and just wants that from him. Calypso is the next to be inhospitable when she keeps Odysseus against his will in her home, even when he wants to go home.
