not give any benefit to the rest of his family. Lord Randal may have kept the fact that he was meeting this woman in the forest a secret so that his mother would not find out he was dishonoring his family as the eldest son. Also, because Lord Randal is the eldest son and his father has presumably passed away, he has inherited all of his father’s assets. This inheritance is granted to him because, even though his mother is still alive, she is a woman and not considered eligible to own anything as ‘not a real person’. Even on Lord Randal’s death bed, he gives his brother his land, his sister all of his gold and silver, and he lastly gives his mother cows. If Lord Randal and his mother had a loving relationship, he would have given her much more than cows, because her inheritance leaves her with almost nothing. In addition, if his mother had an extremely loving relationship with him, she would have accepted him no matter who he wanted to marry, and would not have shamed him for falling in love with a woman of a lower class. Lord Randal dishonors his mother and the rest of his family, which he would not have done if his relationship with his mother was a loving one.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
