The rest of the tribe focuses in on her. As a result of the tribes blocking, they further establish her as someone of importance. This theme persists in the second act. Sheila climbs to the top of a crate, emphasizing her as the focal point in the scene. While on the crate, she reminds the tribe of a protest, “tomorrow morning, at dawn, we will take our heads down to the U.S. Army induction center for an Exorcism of the Khaki” (CITE 81).
Play-scripts were manuscript and used as manuals to en-scene plays which were visually presented by actors for the purpose of entertaining and communicating implied meaning to an audience. Shakespeare’s play Macbeth was written during King Henry V’s reign over England, a historical context which emphasizes meaning to the basis of the play. Having read Shakespeare’s Macbeth and watched film director Justin Kurzel’s re-interpretation of the play starring Michael Fassbender we can identify dissimilarities and noticeable distinctions between the script and the movie. Through my analysis, I determined the main difference between the play-script and the movie to be the role of grief in influencing the actions of the main characters. This opens a
The play closes on a positive note with Nora, representative of the supressed female, overcoming Torvald, representative of the oppressive male, however to express the true extent of this achievement, Ibsen makes evident the context of the struggle that society dictated women live by. The progressive characterisation of the protagonist Nora encapsulates Ibsen’s intention of pushing theatrical and societal norms through showing how women deserve to create their own identity and not be restricted by their male oppressors.

An example of how Sophocles changed the character
In Shakespeare’s play, Julius Caesar, the main character, Julius Caesar, believes he has two good friends in Mark Antony and Brutus, and he has good reason to believe so. That is until Brutus literally stabs Caesar in the back. Now it is time for Caesar’s funeral and both Brutus and Antony are giving speeches. During their speeches, Brutus and Antony use ethos, logos, and pathos, but with very different intentions. Brutus intends to justify his actions, and gain the support of the Roman people.
The deceitful motives of the characters in Othello derived from popular comedy of early Italians in the sixteenth century. When Shakespeare wrote Othello, he intended to keep the audience on their seats. Common playwright techniques such as “improvised dialog, quick repartee, sham regional dialects, sly mockery, satire, obscene jokes and raillery” are used to amuse the audience (Whalen). Shakespeare focused on emphasizing how the audience will react. Whether they are expected to cry, laugh, or gasp, he put meticulous thought into the plot.
Before Antony spoke he was given a list of rules from Brutus that he had to follow. If the rules were broken Antony could have been in danger. By praising Caesar in disguise using verbal irony, Antony tries to get his audience to turn against Brutus and the conspirators. The way Shakespeare wrote the speech was to express the tone and diction. The way Mark Antony
