    416 words
    One of the most difficult obstacles a playwright has to overcome is finding a way to engage and interest their audience to their piece. Often having to deal with such problems such as boredom, inattentiveness, or just a general lack of interest, playwrights often invent dramatic devices that entice and entertain their audiences.

The call of the Christian, in accordance with its basic conviction to be Christ-like, translates here into a call to be a servant. Christ charges his disciples with this call in Mark...

    Upon reading the Holy Sonnets of John Donne, one is opened to somewhat of a different person than imagined, compared to reading such poems as his A Valediction Forbidding Mourning or The Flea. Whereas the latter center around very optimistic love themes, the former center around very self-effacing themes of spiritual inadequacy and even religious abomination. To fully understand the kind tortured psyche that is presented, a complete comprehensive analysis would need to be done for all the Sonnet...
