Brutus is easily influenced by others, especially if it appeals to his status or honor. Brutus responds to Cassius ' rant about Caesar that appeals to him, "That you do love me, I am nothing jealous; what you would work me to, I have some aim" (Shakespeare 540). This flaw also leads to him being naïve. In III.i, Brutus makes crucial decisions without the other 's opinions on the situation. His naivety gets the best of him when he allowed Mark Antony to speak at Caesar 's funeral (despite Cassius ' disapproval).
Renowned for complicated plot twists, Shakespeare is able to hook audiences through his use of dramatic irony. By definition, dramatic irony is When the audience knows more than the characters. For example, when we know where Emilia got the handkerchief, but Othello doesn’t. The frequent use of dramatic irony in “Othello” is evident through the use of misplaced trust, symbolism, as well as jealousy and love. Shakespeare’s use of the dramatic irony convention helps to create a complicated but interesting plot for both audiences and readers, oftentimes causing audiences to feel anger, disbelieve, or sympathy towards the characters.
Death, the cause and effect of Hamlet’s revenge. If death is not occurring, it is often questioned by Hamlet. Hamlet is so overwhelmed with bereavement that he contemplates the idea of suicide.

“The list is an absolute good,” Stern tells Schindler “The list is life. All around its margins lies the gulf.” Schindler’s List is a brilliant film about a tragic event in history. Schindler’s List does not, however, create an accurate depiction of what it was really like in Europe (Germany and Poland) during the time of the Holocaust. However, Schindler’s List did follow the novel that it's based on well. Schindler's List also appealed to ethos, logos, and pathos to create something beautiful out of something ugly.
On Hamlet, Mortality, And the Narrow Divide between Life and Death Hamlet- one of Shakespeare’s most thoroughly referenced works, and one the most widely studied pieces of English literature. Thanks to modern ignorance and terrible acts of misattribution, Hamlet has become synonymous with epic single acts, standalone speeches and incredible and ageless words of wisdom. But the reality stands alone in its travesty- Hamlet is more realistically akin to incestuous desire, copious amounts of death, unreciprocated love and the dire consequences that result from waiting too long to carry out your premeditated homicides. Too often are Hamlet’s self-pitying words associated with emotional intelligence, and his madness feebly mistaken as a reference to the more savage and instinctual nature of man. No; in order to understand the story of Hamlet we must part with these romantic gestures and false pretenses and dig deeper into the meat of the matter; not as spectators to the sport, but rather as fellow writers and purveyors of the English language, not as the audience but as the actors- and by doing so we may come to understand the very essence of humanity that is so blatantly made evident through the great tragedy of Hamlet.
One of the finest examples of Shakespeare’s use of theater versus life is in Hamlet. In Hamlet, Shakespeare does not just simply use the theme, he molds the play around it. This can be easily seen in the titular character, where he uses his “antic disposition” as a tool to get revenge. In Hamlet’s own words “As I perchance hereafter shall think meet, to put an antic disposition on” (I, v, 172-73). However, the lines begin to blur as to whether Hamlet completely retains his sanity in his

Is burning ambition the driving force of corruption? This powerful question leaves many pondering the good or bad stigma of ambition, illustrated in Shakespeare's masterpiece, Macbeth. Looking into how modern film renditions help prove Shakespeare's stance on this thought, Kayla Ram reports. Correct me if I'm wrong but the memo of Macbeth seems all too familiar, does it not? This extravaganza still seems very relevant today even if this literature was created 400 years ago.
