The suffering may be moral or physical; and in my opinion it is just as absurd to call a man a coward who destroys himself, as to call a man a coward who dies of a malignant fever. "( Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, 1774) The meaning is moral pain is same as physical pain, and when someone suffers a lot of moral pain, he can not live too. Except love, Werther is pessimistic when he faces other problems. He signs: “That the life of man is but a dream, many a man has surmised heretofore; and I, too, am everywhere pursued by this feeling. When I consider the narrow limits within which our active and inquiring faculties are confined; when I see how all our energies are wasted in providing for mere necessities, which again have no further end than to prolong a wretched existence.”( Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, 1774) When he does not meet Charlotte, he always writes pessimistic things in the letter.

Germany had little flexibility with its’ army, both in size and actions, due to the restrictions, which caused Germany to begrudge the surrounding countries.

There are many reasons why the Treaty of Versailles caused World War Two, but there still might have been other causes; just like how Germany was blamed for World War One, it is unfair to put all the blame of the treaty without acknowledging other possible
William Shakespeare's King Lear is depressing and has no mercy, but it also encounters many more aspects which are quite important for everyone to know, such as: trails of deaths, battles, love, hatred, treacheries and most importantly nature and culture. Shakespeare created a play where the world was cruel and there was only plotting and tragedy with no shining light at the end of the tunnel. Shakespeare makes King Lear, a natural figure to show the hypocrisy. The connection between King Lear and Cordelia is an analogy for the relationship of nature and culture. It seems that King Lear believed in culture instead of nature, he could not understand his youngest, nicest and the most loving daughter Cordelia only because she had no words to

The “Tragedy of Hamlet”, Prince of Denmark, is a tragedy written by greatest writer William Shakespeare, also the playwright of his legendary plays “The Tragedy of Macbeth” and “Romeo and Juliet”. In the play, there is a palpable connection between their target audience and dramatic works. A speech presented by King Claudius in Act 4, scene 5; is a perfect example of this relationship. In the speech, it showed how Claudius was trying to earn the sympathy of the audience, but instead, he gained antipathy. The modern-day audience had a completely different outcome because of present-day cultural, social, and economical perception.

However, its significance in the development of theatre was that, being a style with which everyone was familiar, it could provide a rich stimulus for the more serious theatre that supplanted it. Many farcical scenes from folk dramas were included as interludes in the later religious plays, making them more vigorous and balancing didacticism with entertainment. Divorced from their validating mythology by the domination of Christian myths, the pagan celebrations soon began to lose their primary function, and eventually their true meaning was
