Character Feste In Twelfth Night
446 wordsIn William Shakespeare's Twelfth Night, the character Feste is what you might call a clown. In the script he is sometimes called the Fool, and he may present himself as that. He is the comic relief for the serious scenes, although sometimes he will provide the serious subject matter himself. Feste also seems to somewhat all-knowing. He knew when no one else did that Cesario was a woman. All together, Feste seems to not be intertwined in the story too much, but rather and outsider who observes an...

Trambley's Representation Of Sor Juana
1,261 wordsTruly the Americas' First Feminist? Failing to Set a Precedent In Estela Portillo Trambley's play Sor Juana the main character Sor Juana Ines de la Cruz was considered to be one of the earliest feminists. Sor Juana's eternal struggles to study and unshakable craving for knowledge and wisdom, from whatever source it may be, support this attribute. In my opinion however, there are also significant elements of the play that suggest that Sor Juana would not be considered a true feminist. Of these re...
Choices To Hermia
337 wordsA Midsummer Night's Dream: Women In Elizabethan England I think something very interesting in this play is the way in which woman were seen in Elizabethan England during Shakespeare's day. The play gives numerous examples of the way woman are treated as second class citizens; for instance, the laws concerning marriage and the position of men in society. When Hermia states that she does not want to marry Demetrius, the man of her fathers choice, and would rather marry Lysander, she is placed in a...
981 wordsemail: title: The stronger yet weaker sex Throughout many of William Shakespeare best known works, there is a common element that is frequently overlooked. It isn't the continual use of water terms, or the presence of clowns, or even references to the devil, but rather the domination of the almighty woman. This mighty, strong, independent woman, who can hold her own in a society ran by males is an essential part of nearly every great Shakespearean play. It seems almost implausible that there wou...

Beginning Of The Play The Heidi Chronicles
1,327 wordsFrom the beginning of the play The Heidi chronicles we can see already that Heidi is concerned about the dominating role of men over women. The whole meaning of the play becomes about Heidi herself and her role as a woman in society. The problem is that Heidi does not know what exactly her role as a woman in an 80's society. In the Heidi's fraise: "And you sort of want to dance, and sort of want to go home, and you sort of don't know what you want. So you hang around, a fading rose in an exquisi...
459 wordsShe practises a fugue, though it can matter to no one now if she plays well or not. We believe this represents that the woman still holds on to her dreams of being a professional musician of some description. She had the ability once to be great but it was sacrificed for the suburban family ritual. No one is here to listen to her playing now, so the music's accuracy and content is for the woman only. Beside her on the floor two children chatter, then scream and fight. She hushes them. A pot boil...
