In the Tragedy of Hamlet, by William Shakespeare, some of the most significant events are mental or psychological events that make the audience feel and have an emotional connection with the characters. Moreover, these significant events are categorized as new awakenings, discoveries, and changes in consciousness that set off a mental or psychological effect to the readers. The author, Shakespeare, gives these internal events to characters such as Ophelia, Gertrude, and Hamlet throughout the play to give the sense of excitement, suspense, and climax which associate with their external action. Ophelia is the daughter of Polonius and the sister of Laertes, who both tell her to stop seeing Hamlet. To Polonius, Ophelia is an eternal virgin who is going to be a
"In what ways does Priestley vividly convey the tensions in the Birling family?" Priestly uses many devices to convey the tensions in the birling family in ‘An Inspector Calls’. Tensions are conveyed through the setting and use of time, character isssues, dramatic irony and stage directions and the use of mystery throughout the play. Tensions in the Birling family are shown from the beginning with the room described as ‘not cosy and home-like’ and the audience senses a coldness underneath the ‘jolly’ engagement celebrations. Setting and Use of Time.
The scenes consist of the many techniques mentioned above, there are two main characters are shown and the play is set in contrasting between the past and the present. There are two real locations that are the TV studio and Melbourne hotel, however the interplay of the techniques in the scenes works together to create a wartime setting. The audience awareness is developed through the historical information from each scene. Theatrical devices a re combined to create various features and have a great dramatic impact. The structure promotes the audience to watch the play because the structure of this storyboard is contrasted between the past and present that will attract audience attention, as it is an historical play set between different times.
Simultaneously, part of the human mind contains collective unconsciousness which is shared by all members of the human species. As a writer, and playwright Timothy Findley continues to amaze his audience through the development of his characters that are challenged by their own sanity in society. Robert Ross demonstrates the role of an archetypal hero as he comes across many obstacles during his journey that signify pivotal turning points in his life, which are self questioning. The story of Robert’s quest for survival demonstrates a number of archetypal elements, which are evident in terms of the plot, characterization and symbolism found in The Wars. According to psychoanalyst Carl Jung who understood universal patterns and images to be derived from our psychic existence, including thought patterns, dreams and arts.
The thematic issues and concerns of both plays include – Racism, Discrimination, Persecution, Lack of Respect, Identity, Belonging (or lack of), Discovery and the issues of Home. Harrison’s production is an empathetic insight into the sustained impact of the “Stolen Generation” on its victims. Harrison’s stage directions allow performers to powerfully use sets and props to represent the experience of each character. This was demonstrated while viewing different scenes of “Stolen” workshopped in class. The actors started off each holding a suitcase conveying the absence of home, stability and security.
Privileging the kingdoms interest over the interest of his family/wife. • What are their views about other female/male characters in Ramlila? The documentation of such practices has become increasingly relevant for the people and countries concerned and is often understood, as acknowledgement of their cultural heritage, and it is also often a source of proliferation of cultural and gender stereotypes and for the vast number of people in North India it serves as a sort of ‘sentimental education’ (Marwah, 2006, 5). My aim then is to present the audience members and performers with interpretative questions about the gender performances on stage. So I will engage with the notion of performativity or the being performed by gender discourses and how the performance of gender roles variously conforms to or challenges this pressure towards the
Spielberg did an amazing job at setting the mood for each scene. For instance, he would intensify the music when something significant was about to happen, putting the viewers on the edge of their seats. Spielberg also used gloomy coloring to get the viewer to feel the emotion of the characters at given times. Even the way that some scenes were shot made it more intriguing to watch. When Katherine (Meryl Streep) was on the phone discussing the potential downfall if they were to publish, Spielberg filmed an aerial shot.
William Thornton 's 2009 film Samson and Delilah is a turbulent and confronting love story intended to create conversation about the issues faced by indigenous youth in the twenty-first century. Thornton uses religious motifs, musical themes, and filmic devices (such as lighting, camera angles, and settings) to create dramatic juxtapositions within the film. Ultimately, he presents a provocative commentary on cultural appropriation and isolation, racial tension and substance abuse, and the overwhelming silence of indigenous voices in Australian film. As 2018 marks a decade after Kevin Rudd 's, 'Sorry Speech ' this film still remains as provocative and relevant as it did a year after that critical apology. Throughout the film, Thornton uses filming techniques to create dramatic juxtapositions and confront the audience.
The vividness of these descriptions works to further portray what the author wants the reader to see, while also keeping the objective narration of the soldier. The narrator’s sensory imagery can be seen throughout the flashback, including when Whitman is describing the “patter of small arms, the warning s-s-t of the rifles” and the “sound of the cannon far or near, (rousing even in dreams a devilish exultation and all the old mad joy in the depths of my soul,)” In addition, a sense of urgency can be found through the flashback, as there is more punctuation in these lines, making the descriptions sound more detached and separate from each other. In the line, “the skirmishers begin—they crawl cautiously ahead—I hear the irregular snap! Snap!”, every few words is separated by dash, causing the narration of the poem to be more staccato and each of the descriptions to be more distinct from each other. This disconnection of phrases also adds to the sense of urgency found in the scenes of the
Nora who risked jeopardizing her husband’s image had set the tone throughout the play as the constant change in personality set the tone of the play which I have really enjoyed due to the unpredictable plot twists and a chance to be engaged with The Victorian culture at that time period. There were also secondary characters such as Linde and Krogstad that further shaped up the plot of the story, especially Krogstad who was responsible for blackmailing Nora which set a very suspenseful and problematic tone. The title “dolls house” foreshadows my idea of the play as the word “doll” meant being objectified which relates to the main idea of the play. The book did a great job in foreshadowing and hinting future events as seen in the title. In one line, Torvald calls
Arthur Miller’s Death of Salesman is a play meant to be performed on a stage in front of a live audience. Not only does Miller have to develop a story with dialogue, but he also has to write stage directions for actors in the play. What the actors do on stage are just as important as reciting lines properly for audiences. Directors and producers would have difficulties portraying characters and actions on stage in Miller’s Death of a Salesman because of the setting and background changes, and Willy’s hallucinations. Most of the play takes place in the house of the Lomans but there are scenes that are outside of the house.
