"Harrison Bergeron" by Kurt Vonnegut, Jr. is a satirical short story in which Vonnegut implies, if society interprets equality literally, there would be no significance between humans. The protagonist Harrison has escaped from prison and his parents Hazel and George are watching the program he appears upon, as he insists he is an emperor and the first female to rebel will be his empress. Following this rant he discards his handicaps making him appear god like. Soon after, the Handicapper General kills the emperor and his empress with a "double-barrelled ten-gauge shotgun"(pg. 64).
Commedia is a very physical type of theatre that incorporates “dance, music, tumbling, acrobatics and buffoonery” into its form of performance. The term roughly translated denotes an improvised drama, and is implicit to the means of performance than to the subtext of the play (). Commedia dell’arte artists had a vivid assortment of stories that were performed in fairgrounds and market places, and often the touring ensemble were characterised by family members who would inevitably inherit their characters, costumes assortments and anectdotes or fables from their parents or grandparents (). The Commedia dell 'arte focused mostly with dishonourable love intrigues and clever tricks to acquire money. () The deliverance of comic relief, in the form lazzi or humerous interruptions, which often were irrelevant to the play itself, and the facilitation of masks, which allowed each character to shape his/her sense of identity in the play, frame Commedia dell’Arte to its unique eccentricity and absurdity.
In the poem, the line “Or does (the dream) explode? (line 11) is added as an afterthought to Hughes’ wondering about what happens when a dream is dismissed. In Walter’s case, the dream is not so much dismissed as taken away from him by force, in a metaphorical explosion. This eruption affects the rest of the family as well, and Mama’s shock/anger is so severe that her first reaction is to repeatedly beat Walter in the
Ray has arrived just because he has been informed that his father has died. He then tries to investigate what happened to his father in his last days. He looks for all the possible clues, right from glancing through the family photographs to asking the neighbors. But all turn out to be misleading since all belong to that misremembered, mythicized past. The only way out left then is enacting what the father could have possibly done and this reenactment includes nothing but a performance of the father’s violent acts with Ray, beating his brother, Earl, until he cannot walk , forcing him to clean the floor because he is going to stay and live in their dead father
In other words, not being upset by his father 's death would prove that his mother was stepping out on his dad. It 's only after he storms the castle with a band of armed men that he starts asking questions —unlike Hamlet, who asks a whole lot of questions before he finally gets around to avenging his father 's death. Here 's the funny thing, though: both of them end up dead, in exactly the same way, and at each other 's hands. So, is Laertes ' method really any better than Hamlet 's? It is clear that Hamlet is the winner in the cause that he actually get to stab and poison Claudius, which is his But toward the end of the play, he recognized his fault and ask for forgiveness.“ Lo, here I lie, never to rise again.
In fact, after Kent tried to calm him down and have him reflect on what he was doing, Lear got angry and banished Kent as well, who was his right hand man. As the play progresses, Lear’s madness is exposed again and again. One spot in particular that really demonstrated his loosening grip on reality was in scene four of act three when after talking to Poor Tom, he ripped off his clothes (3.4.107-108). He had been talking to Poor Tom after leaving his horrible daughters at Goneril’s home, venturing into a nasty storm, and was completely unphased by the crazy things that he is telling him. This part of the play was a big moment because it captured one of the key moments in Lear’s downward spiral into insanity.
While storytelling can change and shape a reader’s opinions and perspective, it might also be the closest in helping O’Brien cope with the complexity of war experiences, where the concepts like moral and immorality are being distorted. “How to Tell a True War Story” and “Ambush” are stories that both explore on topics: truth, the real definition of a true war story, and the role of truth. O 'Brien starts off “How to Tell a True War Story” with “This is true.” Starting this story with such a bold sentence not only makes it seem more true, but to some extent, it acts as a comfort statement to the narrator’s own doubts, as if there were unspeakable uncertainties and lies of the narrator. The title of this story also comes into play, with a meta-fictional name “How to Tell a True War Story”, as if it were a guide, a manual, having a true war story tell the readers how to tell a true war story. However ironically, towards the middle of the story, us as

He killed Polonius without any regrets and continued to explain the situation with king’s death to his mother. At the end of the Act 3 Hamlet still understand everything clearly. For example, he knows Rosencrantz and Guildenstern participate in plot against him: “They bear the mandate; they must sweep my way, And marshal me to knavery” (Shakespeare 91). But Hamlet started to show signs of sociopathy with his calm attitude to Polonius’s murder. His hallucinations also progressed as the prince saw father’s ghost in Gertrude’s room.
