Have you ever been so scared to do something but you know that you have to do it? I’ll tell you what in the book Hamlet by William Shakespeare it sure does! The Kenneth Branagh is the most effective film because they actually show the correct emotion. Without this emotion it would be a pretty vague film. Doran’s version best fits Shakespeare's intention, because we see not only great emotion but also excellent camera work.
Criss Jami once said, "Confidence turns into pride only when you are in denial of your mistakes." Pride finds a way to elicit the worst in someone. Unwanted pride can be seen evident in ones daily life, education, politics, history, etc. Could pride educe the best in someone? Maybe; however, I agree with Playwright Sophocles that , "all men make mistakes, but a good man yields when he knows his course is wrong, and repairs the evil.
Perrineau’s ability to switch emotions so quickly and smoothly was an example of great talent. He was what kept me from seeing “William Shakespeare’s Romeo + Juliet” as a boring old romantic tragedy. He brought comedy to the story while still being able to stay serious and
In the script Twelfth Night by Shakespeare one of the characters named Antonio is seen as a very kind, loyal and generous man. The first sign of this is when Antonio says “The gentleness of all the gods go with thee! I have many enemies in Orsino’s court, else would I very shortly see thee there. But, come what may, I do adore thee so that danger shall seem sport, and I will go.” (Act 2, Scene 1, Line 40). He’s saying that he hopes for the best for Sebastian and because he has so many enemies in Orsino’s court he’s not able to go with him.
Why does Othello not investigate Iago's accusations? Why does Othello not seek his own proof of Desdemona's betrayal? Othello has several reasons for not investigating the claims against Desdemona’s infidelity. First othello trust Iago, you know this for the fact that othello calls iago “honest iago” throughout the play. While Iago has resentment to othello for not promoting him othello cannot see him as untrustworthy, Because of this othello never questioned him.
The Friar detects pure infatuation between Romeo and Juliet as exposed in his commentary to them. The Friar acknowledges Romeo’s quick shifting his infatuation from Rosaline over to Juliet by pointing out, “So soon forsaken? Young men’s love then lies / Not truly in their hearts, but in their eyes.” (A2, S3, L73-74). The Friar states that Romeo is not in love at all, but rather developed an admiration determined by appearance. Along with comforting Romeo for the punishment he received, the Friar adds, “This is dear mercy, and thou seest it not.” (A3, S3, L31).
John Proctor is loyal, honest, and kind-hearted. Proctor can end Abigail Williams only if he admits to adultery. Proctor does not want to ruin his reputation.

Miller incorporates strong diction to illuminate Proctors speaking style throughout the play.
Fortunato believes that Montresor is his friend when he intends to make a fool out of him. Thus, Montresor states, “My dear Fortunato, you are luckily met. How remarkably well you are looking to-day! But I have received a pipe of what passes for Amontillado and have my doubts” (Poe). Montresor calls Fortunato “dear” when he hates this man with a
He compares himself to Brutus, claiming that he cannot “stir men’s blood” through his speaking as Brutus can (Shakespeare 224). First of all, this established a line of trust with his audience - Antony is able to convince the plebeians that he is not aiming to manipulate their actions, only to speak his truth of Caesar’s death. Feeling betrayed by Brutus at this point, this argument is effective in giving the plebeians a new faith in Antony’s words. However, in actuality, this statement is enough to compel the plebeians to the exact opposite. The common folk are made to “move / the stones of Rome to rise and mutiny” because of Antony’s enunciation (Shakespeare 230-231).
This highlights the dramatic irony because the audience knows of Desdemona’s faithfulness yet they are powerless in stopping Iago’s plan. Othello’s actions are motivated in the belief that Desdemona has been dishonest, however; Iago has blinded Othello with his dishonesty. Othello’s quest for honesty allows him to be manipulated by the fear of dishonesty and therefore he becomes oblivious to falsehood. Through Othello, Shakespeare raises the idea of honest reputation, and how quickly it can be ruined by dishonesty in the shape of
