  • Benedick And Beatrice Play
    776 words
    Much Ado About Nothing exemplifies a kind of deliberately puzzling title that seems to have been popular in the late 1590's (compare, "As You Like Ito / oo ). Indeed, the play is about nothing; it merely follows the relationships of Claudio and Hero, and in the end, the play culminates in the two other main characters falling in love, which, because it was an event that was quite predictable, proves to be much ado about nothing. The pronunciation of the word "nothing" would, in the late 16th Cen...

    In 1606 William Shakespeare, the Bard of Avon, wrote a play which would go down in history as the cursed Scottish play after numerous mishaps during production.

  • Shred Of Goodness In John Proctor
    2,374 words
    How is 'The Crucible' appropriately titled? The word 'crucible' is used by Arthur Miller in his play as a metaphor. The first definition of the word crucible is: a melting pot especially for metals. In the play this is first acknowledged during the first act, as we gradually piece together the information concerning the girls dancing. The 'kettle' viewed by Reverend Parris mirrors a crucible. We are told that the girls had made a brew which contained a little frog and blood is therefore viewed b...
  • Lord Mayor Like Clarence And Lady Anne

    Lord Hastings: A Justification to Omit Regret We, the audience, lend our ears and nod our heads at the exactness of Lord Hastings's uttering: I think there's never a man in Christendom, Can lesser hide his love or hate than he, For by his face shall you know his heart. (3.4. 51-53). Ironically, we do not assent to his words because they are exactly in the right, but because they are exactly in the wrong. By Act, Richard exhibits a pallet of personalities including the devoted brother, the witty ...
  • Words Of Feste's Songs
    1,143 words
    In William Shakespeare's comedy Twelfth Night, it is ironic how many times the fool is said to be dishonest, when, in fact, his role proves entirely opposite. Though sometimes the characters do not realize his hidden messages, the reader can instantly comprehend Feste's figurative language, which is evident in every scene in which the fool appears. Whether he is singing to Orsino, arguing with Malvolio, or playing around with Viola, Feste always manages to sneak in a few symbolic foretoken's bef...

    Death is such a contradicting situation. It is always a sad event, but in some perspectives it may or may not be a joyous event. Not to say that death should be celebrated, just to point out that life may have been a more dramatic experience. For my first novel in G.T. I read Death of a Salesman, a play written by Arthur Miller. Arthur Miller was born in 1915, in New York City. His parents were well To do until the depression. He attended college where he won three drama prizes. Death of a Sales...
