    In modern times, youth and beauty is an image seen everywhere. For example, a Versace billboard, magazine ad, TV commercial, all of which displays images of beautiful people.

    Across the universe of time: Shakespeare's influence on 21st century society. It is harder to imagine a more universal writer than William Shakespeare. Rarely if ever is one of his many plays not being performed somewhere in the world and similarly rare is the tertiary English student who has not examined his work at length. His plays, sonnets and poems are common fodder for high school English departments across the globe. Shakespeare has perhaps contributed the most to the English language of ...
  • Behavior Of A Good Wife
    360 words
    Was Shakespeare a chauvinist, or was he just a product of his times? Throughout the years, this question has been discussed many times by many different scholars, and varying conclusions have been reached. In my opinion, Shakespeare was neither a chauvinist, nor a product of the times. The man we know as Shakespeare, (or for those who would argue that Shakespeare was not the actual author, we will say the man who wrote the plays) had an attitude about women, an appreciation for the female psyche...

  • Youth To A Summer's Day
    1,625 words
    Sonnet 18 is part of a large group of sonnets that Shakespeare wrote addressing a man of great beauty. Shakespeare, in sonnet 18, uses descriptions of nature, and the power and images that they imply, and directly compares them to the power the young man possesses in his youth, vigor, and promise. Shakespeare then finds that the beauty and power of nature do not compare to the beauty and power of the young man. He uses his poem as a way to provide the youth with an eternal existence and subseque...
