Protagonists and Antagonists in Double Bind by Plautus and Terence and Henry V by Shakespeare

Diddley is presented as the sole savior of the breaking families. He employs his influential tactics to every person he talks to and emerges a successful character in the protagonist scenario (Plautus &amp. Terence 111-125).
Clueless is the protagonist in the play. This opponent rule fits this character because he is persistent in doing the opposite in the better part of the play. Clueless argues against each and everything including the issues better known that the character actually means the opposite. The use of personal appreciation and belief is characteristic of this character’s protagonist’s behavior. The belief that personal opinion is the best for Clueless is the means by which Clueless plays the role of a protagonist, thereby driving the main protagonist action behavior throughout the play.
Henry V by William Shakespeare
Henry V is the protagonist in this play. He is actively involved in activities and actions that are characteristic of managing his Kingdom (Shakespeare 231). The idea here is to gain honor for him and the rest of the people. The ideal way of achieving that is practical to his ways of leadership. The honor is not without its benefits for the King. It is a gateway towards achieving the so much strength portrayed by the King. His character and strengths are integrated to bring out the very best of him. Ruling the Kingdom is not perceived to be an essay in this play. This is why King has to integrate his efforts with the interests of the Kingdom. In order to complete the main action, the King employs a number of tactics. Among them, he is humorous, simple and dignified. His form of Kingship is the use of justice and bravery. The king is an enthusiast, making him an ideal person in whom all the good national qualities are seen. This perfection-tailored aspect of the king is a baseline through which he achieves his purpose in the play.
The antagonist in the play is the French King Charles VI’s eldest son. His name is Dauphin. Dauphin is the active driving force of the French court (Shakespeare 233). His main agenda in the play is to capture the English king. Dauphin over imagines his success over the English king. he ought to bring the English King as a captive. His take of things is rather irrational since the power of the opponent cannot be refuted. As it appears, the antagonist is not calculative enough and he makes quick moves without critically analyzing the situation, thus the failure to achieve his purpose, though he serves the play as the antagonist.
