  • 3 Henry V 16
    609 words
    his dramatic works, Shakespeare has provided insights into human nature which, in the opinion of many of his disciples, equal those of the greatest modern psychologists. The impact of the Bard's insights is compounded by a masterful use of the language which makes him the mostly widely studied English writer. Church records indicate that William Shakespeare was baptised in Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwickshire on April 26, 1564. April 23 is widely accepted as his date of birth. His father was a resp...

  • Seventh And Eighth Lines Shakespeare
    366 words
    Shakespeare's sonnet has the same theme as Sonnet 75 by Spenser: the poet makes his beloved immortal by means of his poetry. This theme is a conventional one in Elizabethan sonnets. But Shakespeare and Spenser treat it in an original and individual manner. Spenser starts from a concrete situation and uses dialogue to make his point. Shakespeare writes a monologue in the form of an address. It contains a carefully reasoned argument which, as in many of Shakespeare's sonnets, moves in a series of ...

    William Shakespeares Sonnet 73 That time of year thou mayst in me behold When yellow leaves, or none, or few, do hang Upon those boughs which shake against the cold, Bare ruin'd choirs, where late the sweet birds sang. In me thou see " st the twilight of such day As after sunset fadeth in the west, Which by-and-by black night doth take away, Death's second self, that seals up all in rest. In me thou see " st the glowing of such fire That on the ashes of his youth doth lie, As the death-bed where...
  • Most Of Shakespear's Plays The Women
    1,100 words
    When William Shakespear wrote, The merchant Of Venice, he made a female character that has a huge influence on the play. In most of his work, the women don't have much power and are not very smart. In the Merchant Of Venice, Portia is a woman that saves the life of a man using her head. Another woman created by Shakespear that is a lot alike with Portia is Beatrice, from Much Ado about Nothing. Both of these ladies add to the main theme of the plays because of their brains, and smart remarks, as...
  • Shakespeare's Comedy Of Errors
    542 words
    Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors is a madcap romp of mistaking's and misadventures, wrapping together two Plaut ine comedies sauced with Scripture and Renaissance poetry. Yet the tangled web of estranged family that Shakespeare weaves holds significant differences from any of his originals, pointing to ideas about family and marriage that Shakespeare no doubt held, and was to develop further in later works. Plautus' Menaechmi yields a basic framework for Shakespeare's plot: two long-separated brot...
  • Shakespeare's Description Of The Perfect Society
    1,065 words
    In Shakespeare's The Tempest, (Act 2, Scene 1) Gonzalo, the councilor, puts forth his idea of the perfect society. In his utopia, the people would not need to do anything - nature would provide everything. This is a reference to the Golden Age of Man. The Golden Age was a chapter in Greek mythology which took place not long after man was created. In both The Tempest and the mythical description of the Golden Age everything was perfect - there was no need for war, and the earth gave everything th...

  • Eating Shame And Thriftless Praise By Shakespeare
    443 words
    Sonnet 2 In Sonnet 2, Shakespeare stresses to his lover that beauty will not last, and that it is selfish and foolish for anyone not to prepare for the loss of beauty and youth by having a child to carry on unsurpassed beauty. The sonnet can be cynically seen as Shakespeare's attempt to get his lover to sleep with him rather than as a lesson in living life. In the first quatrain Shakespeare says that later on, your youth will be worthless. The greatness of your youth, admired by everyone now, wi...
