While the witches posses many powers, they have certain limitations on what they can control. In act 3 the first witch says, “ though his bark cannot be lost, Yet it shall be tempest-tossed. Look what I have” (1, 3, 24-26). She can make the sailor suffer, but she can not make him disappear, which is what she actually wishes to happen. When she says, “though his bark can not be lost,” she also tells about how the witches can curse a soul, but they cannot take a mortal soul without freely choosing to loose their soul.
To comprehend his novel all the more altogether, Arthur Miller uses the most justifiable strategy for understanding, music, to express the feelings of the characters in his play, "Passing of a Salesman". The characters, Willy, Linda, Biff, Happy, and Ben, have a sure style of music and instruments depicting them to demonstrate the pursuer what sort of enthusiastic individual they are. Upbeat tunes constantly went down these circumstances. However, when his longing for the best transformed into the most noticeably awful, an unsavory melody upheld it up. At the point when Willy was befuddled, a variety of the two was listened.
The musical also gives the audience more to think about with its different viewpoint of “The Wicked Witch” and how she isn’t so wicked which can be taken into the context of our everyday lives with the people around us.

In the selected passage Shakespeare uses a rhyming pattern, ABAB CDCD EE. Rhyme is the correspondence between words of similar sounds; this literary device is often used in poetry as well as prose to produce sounds that are appealing to the reader’s senses. Shakespeare used rhyme to highlight Orlando’s feelings; it can also be received by an audience as a kind of “song” therefore reiterating that he is a hopeless romantic as he was so excited and in love that he could not help but “sing”. Throughout the play Shakespeare used hyperboles in order to strongly emphasise a point, emotion or feeling.
Unfortunately, instead of being engaging, they felt gimmicky and trite. For instance: act two started with a bizarre dance of neon skeletons. As an observer, I felt as this was a gimmicky way to extend the length of the performance. One strength I noted, is the idea of using the musical pieces to express the characters inner thoughts. This is an excellent idea for adding modernization since this play does work neatly with adding theatrical elements such as music.
William Shakespeare is well-known and renowned for his thoughtful and cunning plays. The witty and entrancing scenes as well as the ideas that he presents continues to captivate audience around the world centuries later. The works of Shakespeare have not grown old and dusty because of his universal modern truths. He pioneered free thinking and encouraged rebellious acts through his plays. If Shakespeare was born previous to his birth then his works would have most likely been destroyed or cast out.
Consequences of Appearance Versus Reality All stories contain the same basic vital elements, such as plot, characters, and structure, but they would not have purpose if they did not have a theme. These messages allow individuals to reach beyond the basic entertainment of literature to seek a universal message that they can apply to their lives. In Shakespeare’s tragedy Hamlet and Wilde’s comedy The Importance of Being Earnest, revealing themes are expressed through their contrasting genres. Even though both of these works utilize the universal theme of appearance versus reality to display that individuals choose to not question what is before them, comedy does not demonstrate that this is a mistake, while tragedy exposes its negative consequences.
In fact, Macbeth becomes fascinated by them, "would they had stayed." Banquo serves as his conscience, perhaps representing the period audience who would have also thought the witches to be evil and unnatural, and warns him of the dangers of trusting such supernatural messengers; a warning that goes unheeded. After hearing the prophecy, Macbeth already thinks about, "murder," and becomes preoccupied with thoughts of becoming king showing the powerful hold they have over him with only one meeting, scaring the audience who would have believed in Witches. Macbeth believes the Witches as there first prophecy came true and ignores the fact that they’re evil beings whereas Banquo recognizes them for what they are. He even informs his most beloved, Lady Macbeth, who also shares his ambition.
Opera is not verbally translatable, so, the interpretation process of the audience are influenced by revisions of a work. Music and libretto dictate the narrative and the action. Through this, they advance the action in in the limited period of time that they have; integrating the complex actions between real and dramatic time to deepen the narrative microcosm that is presented to us. The audience will identify with characters emotions and moods through an absurd medium but with such a rich empathy that it reaches us in a unique manner.
The play is very dependent on the witches presence because they are what persue Macbeth’s actions and ambitions. They are also important because they play as symbols of evil, destiny, and desire. The scenes would have not happened without their presence.
Ultimately, Petrouchka displays that he feels overpowered by the Showman by pirouetting clumsily with arms in fifth position before landing towards downstage with his head facing the ground and arms swinging insipidly. In consequence, the dynamics shown are mildly entertaining, however the grim realisation that The Showman oppresses Petrouchka elicits sympathy. The mood begins to transition from aggressive to soft with the introduction of high piano keys and flute. Petrouchka reuses the motif of the flat palmed hands to reinforce his disdain for The Showman then drops sluggishly to his knees. It is clear that he yearns to express the love he feels for the Ballerina because he displays this through touching his heart and blowing kisses.

Peculiar Love What would William Shakespeare, or anyone’s scripts, be like without comedy? Comedy is used throughout literature to add an intriguing element to the content. Shakespeare uses multiple types of comedy including mistaken identities, intertwining plots, suspension of natural laws, turning things upside down, the element of marriage, and language. Shakespeare used his imagination and various types of comedy to keep an audience entertained, especially turning things upside down in A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Shakespeare uses turning things upside down to add new and twisting elements of plot to the literature, and assisting readers in deepening their understanding of the theme, plot, and characters of the play .
