Using Sigmund Freud 's work on narcissism, the true nature if the characters of Twelfth Night could be well explored by analyzing the moments of epiphanies. To begin, in Twelfth Night, characters suffer from vanity, a kind of misdirected love. That is, this love is directed toward self rather than toward others. In this manner, vanity deters the process of love. However, love vanquishes vanity.
In Twelfth Night, the imitation of the opposite gender originates from necessity and fear. Viola dressed as a man named Cesario to protect herself when she arrives upon foreign land. When Sebastian,her twin brother, arrives, Shakespeare utilizes the comical aspect of mistaken identity and confusion to show that it can be destructive. The plot in itself raises questions about gender, identity
Proctor values his life but, he does not want to be remembered as a liar who is willing to do whatever it takes for his own life. Also, Proctor is thinks about his children. He does not want to be a bad role model for their children. During the scene where Proctor had the choice to confess, “Proctor tears the paper and crumples it and he is weeping in fury, but erect”(133). Proctor tears the confession paper because he realizes that honor is more important.
Jean- Baptiste Molière’s play “Tartuffe” is an unquestionably humorous comedy. The play defines the hypocritical acclaimed “Christians” we have in society. Daily, many people are blinded by admiration of religious figures who they believe are Gods disciples and can lead them to the gates of heaven. In “Tartuffe”, the author uses irony, satire, and tone to uncover a man follies of unreligious faith, the lust of women, money, and power. Jean- Baptiste Molière uses irony many times throughout the play, but more specifically when Tartuffe describes himself as a sinner.
Molière’s play, Tartuffe, features an ensemble of unique characters who all reveal their personalities to the reader in their own way. For example, you have a character like Cléante who displays to us that he is a very wise and logical free thinker. Furthermore, the character of Orgon is able to illustrate that he is a gullible, but caring man who tries to see the best in people even though it almost causes his downfall. Of course, we also have the title character of Tartuffe, who, as his name suggests, is a hypocrite, with no real regard for anything besides his own motives. Of all the characters in the cast of Tartuffe I found that the one that resonated with me the most was Dorine.
Throughout the Musical, Fosse featured his signature choreographic style. The movements were sexually suggestive due to hip thrust. Fosse portrayed a Vaudeville burlesque-like comedy in the Pajama Game dances, with the usage of hunched shoulders, turned in feet, and double takes. He also used hand isolations similar to that of a mimes, in an effort, to show emotions without needed words. Fosse had many of the dancers perform in black costumes with white gloves, due to his Charlie Chaplin
Moliere, in his play Tartuffe, portrays religious hypocrisy through Tartuffe the hypocrite. Early in the play Tartuffe reveals his character when he is observing Dorine and calling to his manservant. “Hand up my hairshirt… with poor wretches there.” (Act III, Scene 2, lines 1-4) Dorine criticizes Tartuffe because humble Christians, do not flaunt their good deeds. Tartuffe, on the other hand, wants everyone to know how much of a “good man” he is. Another example is when Cleante tells Orgon “their virtue is acknowledged; who could doubt it?
You will not use me! It is no part of salvation that you should use me!” (1356). The dignity Proctor has for his name throughout the village proves that he will under no circumstances be used as an example to others. Not only is this a huge strength, but a turning point
William Shakespeare’s play Twelfth Night has been made into several film versions. The versions include the Globe Theatre version directed by Tim Carroll in 2012. Another version by Trevor Nunn was made in 1996, and a third version called She’s The Man made in 2006 was directed by Andy Fickman. A comparison of the media skills, characters, and the setting in the various versions of Twelfth Night and She’s The Man shows that She’s The Man is superior to the other Twelfth Night versions for students learning Shakespeare for the first time.
