There are numerous comical parts in the play, allowing the audience to connect more with the characters. Description of the world of the play: The stage directions are unconventionally detailed and long and are spread throughout the script. This allows the reader to have a clearer idea of what the characters are doing instead of only knowing their words, entrances and exits. Evaluation: I appreciated the descriptive stage directions since it enriched the play and allowed me to envision the play as I read. The script had one overarching theme while also highlighting issues and situations that likely represent many families in the area.
Abner Snopes tells his son that he has to be loyal to his family or he is going to end up alone. This cause a dilemma for Sarty because he was to be loyal to his father, but he wants to do the right thing with the court of law. The development of the character changes was gradual and obvious to the reader. When Sarty saw De Sapin maison represents a better life. Abner Snopes would abuse his son and one particular moment Sarty realize that he did not want to live in fear with his father rules.
During the opening scene in Avatar, you had Jake Sulley wheeling into a dark room where you can hear loud footsteps and Colonel Quaritch talking. While he’s talking about the rules on base, you can hear the loud footsteps made by him. The camera switches from his back to a close up on his feet. Then all of a sudden the footsteps stop and they switch from colonels feet to a close up on his face, slowly zooming in. In my opinion when James Cameron zooms on Colonel Quaritchs steps it is showing that he is a hard military man that will finish the job he has been assigned to do, and no one is to get in his way or else.Again when they show his face they have used a close up.
All of the hysteria is dispelled by a simple moment of clarity. The characters are digging their own graves and manage to pull themselves out by the end of the play because of one singular moment in the conclusion. This trend is Shakespeare 's rebuke to anyone that relies too heavily upon themselves. The critical approach I will take with the plays focuses on the nature of the conflicts in the plays and their relationships to the audience. For example, juxtaposing the divine intervention in Cymbeline and the lack of magic in Much Ado about Nothing creates space to discuss Shakespeare 's multiple rejections of solipsism.
The impactful use of figurative language enhances the tinge of splendor and mystery to the play. Shakespeare’s frequent use of metaphors comparing something to other things is quite noticeable throughout the play. Remarkable examples occur when Lady Macbeth refers to “the milk of human kindness,” and Macbeth, in the end of play talks philosophically about life as “a walking shadow, a poor player that struts and frets his hour upon the stage (MB 5.5.24-25).” Although Shakespeare does not use similes as often as metaphors, they are a regular feature in this play. An instance of a simile appears when Macbeth calls pity “like a naked newborn babe (MB 1.7.21).” Further the fight of two warriors is described as “as two spent swimmers that do cling together (MB 1.2.9).” Apart from these, many more examples of simile and metaphors can be found in almost every page of this play. Personification is another weapon which is willingly used to dive deep into human imagination.
While actors and costumes add other elements in both cases, the budgets for both projects are often vastly different. Language was also another element that Miller had to adjust from both projects. If you look in the text, the language used is far more relevant to that of the time period. The screenplay however, uses a similar form of this historical speech. Though, the text was written in the language patterns of the late 1700’s, when compared to the more modern Americanized version is lessened by Miller who states, “The Problem was not to imitate the archaic speech but to try to create a new echo of it which would flow freely off American actor’s tongues,” an important field to maintain when writing dialogue for
“Class” by Sherman Alexie is a story about a man, Edgar Joseph, on a journey to self-identification. While on this journey he experiences many different tribulations and encounters a multitude of women. The encounters with these women will reveal to the reader his selfless, barbaric, and lost personality. However, the experiences he had with women of his own descent provided a transformative experience that shows what he is looking for and what he truly values. Edgar’s selflessness can be seen through his mother.
This essay will focus on two plays; Raisin in the Sun and Cloud 9, and how the two different dramatic structures create meaning for the context provided in the pays. Raisin in the Sun is a well-made play, a reflection of society and dealing with real life social issues. Whereas Cloud 9 has a postmodern structure, which goes against modernism and a well-made play, deconstructing and breaking away from metanarratives and master narratives. The essay will compare and contrast the two different plays, and also discuss the meaning each play attempts to portray in their contexts. The first play in focus is the play Raisin in the Sun.
He gives an extreme version of life, specifically entertainment, without imagination. The rude mechanicals in this play are used for a satirical purpose. They are supposed to mock and make obvious the sense of fear within the theatre community on whether or not their play could get them executed. If their play offended any nobility or Queen Elizabeth, it could mean their deaths and this sucked the creativity out of the arts. Shakespeare takes the opportunity to make subtle comment on this.
