Montague and Capulet are both greedy because they did not put aside their differences and end their ongoing dispute, even though it lead to people getting hurt. Instead, Montague and Capulet watched Verona struggle with deaths and fights, but refused to do anything about it. In Romeo and Juliet, Romeo and Juliet both knew they would never be able to love each other due to their parents feud. This caused them to keep their love hidden which lead to trouble later in the play. “The fathers stand for the accumulated experience of the past, for tradition, for authority and hence for the two most potent forces that mold and so impart “destiny” to the child’s life” (Goddard par 5 ).
King Lear Seminar Response 1. During the seminar on William Shakespeare’s play King Lear a statement I agreed with was when Victoria spoke. Victoria argued that point four “Given what Edmund was born into, his actions are understandable.” Victoria explained Edmund, Edgar and Gloucester situation and the constant mistreat Edmund received from Gloucester and said that no matter what a person does to you, feel whatever you want, but it is wrong to act upon the negative feelings.
The audience sympathise with King Lear’s redemption. Throughout the play, he gets a chance at redemption to make up for his mistake of having “thy truth being the dower:” for his daughter. He realises the folly of his actions and redeems himself stating “I am a very foolish fond old man”. This demonstrates King Lear's change in character as he learns that he is not as powerful as thinks he was and starts to become more humble. There is a lure of sympathy for King Lear because a story of redemption inspires people and catches their imagination, that anything is possible.
In the works read in this course, many characters live lives through a single story. They are unable to feel empathy for others because they are so focused on themselves and their own problems. But as they start to listen, they start to learn how the world around them and others’ experiences can help them grow as human beings. In King Lear, a play by William Shakespeare, Lear experiences changes throughout the play as he opens up to new stories. At first he is blinded by his own pride but as the play progresses he learns others’ stories and changes his views.

Imagery within literary pieces consistent with Shakespeare’s, (1610-11/2014), work in “The Tragedy of King Richard the Second” can capture the imagination of his readers while actively foreshadowing and alluding to the theme within his production (1.1-5.6, pp. 331-369). Allegorical language can act as a catalyst to allow images of the natural world to transcend their literal meanings and connect happenings of the past or future through descriptions of nature or gardens. “Yet again methinks Some unborn sorrow ripe in Fortune’s womb Is coming towards me With nothing trembles. As something it grieves More than with parting from my lord the King” (Shakespeare, 1610-11/2014, 2.2.9-13, Queen, p.344).
Isis was viewed by the Egyptians as a protector, most commonly of pregnant women, infants, and children. Isis was the wife of the god Osiris. His brother, Seth, was jealous of him and had wanted to take his throne. Seth cut Osiris into pieces and scattered them all over Egypt. Isis found all but one of the pieces of Osiris and put him back together.
My translated journal involves people and places that are non-fictional, others that are fictional but based off of non-fictional models, and some that are completely fictional. William, the main protagonist and the journal’s keeper, falls under the second category. Basing the main character off of a real person—such as the illegitimate children of Henry I—allowed me to get a good grounding for the backstory, setting, and the conflicts that the character may struggle with. I attempted to make William seem like a normal person and yet I focused too heavily on the plot rather than his expression of emotions. Luckily, the majority of the story’s plot occurs over a relatively short time span in which a lot of personal growth for William happens; the shifting of the setting, addition of characters, and rapidly occurring events allow the reader to have a deeper connection with William even though the he is a rather superficial character.
The Colorful Language of Shakespeare’s King Richard II A great portion of Gaunt’s dialogue throughout the play makes strong reference to God. For instance, his philosophical, holy dialect in the play is first evident in the conversation between the Duchess of Gloucester as her emotions are heightened in regard to her husband’s death (Bevington, 2014). Gaunt then speaks more in-depth about Richard’s incompetent ways of ruling in a conversation with York, and he describes Richards leadership in England by utilizing a colorful analogy of a garden and the ways of nature.
The whole life of an individual is nothing but the process of giving birth to himself. Indeed, they should be fully born - although it is the tragic fate of some individuals to die before they are born. The thought of embracing a tragic hero in King Lear is what creates an icing on the cake. A tragic hero in King Lear is Lear, who is not eminently good and just, and whose misfortune is brought by error in decision making. In William Shakespeare’s King Lear, the development of Lear is indicated in three stages: the entrance of uncontrolled enthusiasm into Lear’s mind as a problematic power; the storm as an image of a problematic power, which relates to the conflict within Lear; and furthermore the rebirth of Lear through self-revelation.
