mind in the case of Shakespeare literature, Juliet’s (famous) speech during the balcony scene of the play Romeo and Juliet shows the theme of heart vs. mind. Romeo and Juliet is a romance play with the two-main character Romeo and Juliet being from rival families, however, the two are brought together by fate and must try and keep their forbidden love a secret. Juliet could be the more logical/ reasonable one of the two when it comes to not letting your emotions and passion for love get in the way, however, she does have her moments. For example, in this scene, Juliet is pouring her heart out about Romeo over the balcony of her bedroom not knowing that Romeo was listening. During this heartful speech about Romeo, the two see each other unexpectedly making Juliet recant her statements about her love for Romeo when she really did love him.
He instructs his audience to ask if Nye was worth it but does not offer suggestions to improve future speakers, offer information on how to change the budget, or how to get rid of the Speaker Series in general. At the end of the article, the audience still wonders who to blame and what to do about
The Execution of Romanticism in “An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge” Ambrose Bierce’s “An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge” is one of the most thought-provoking Civil War stories written in the 19th century. In this story, Bierce digs his pen into philosophical questions about “the nature of time and the nature of abnormal psychology” (Logan 102). Yet because of the story’s multifaceted poignancy, scholarship has debated whether it is a Romantic yarn, a Gothic tale, or something abruptly more cynical. I will argue that “An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge” is actually a transitional short story that explores how the rise of regionalism and realism during the Civil War led to the death of romanticism. In “An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge,” the central character Peyton Farquhar functions as a symbol of romanticism.
In the prologue, Shakespeare epitomises Henry for the audience, and attempts to build a poignant love of him, which becomes a central theme as the play continues. In the prologue, Shakespeare writes “the warlike Harry, like himself / Assume the port of Mars”. This immediate, simplistic description of Henry V as warlike displays what, at the time, was wanted in a leader: powerful, warmongering and bloodthirsty. In addition to this, the casual nicknaming of Henry to Harry shows that another value in a King was that he represented the people, while also appearing god-like, demonstrated in the audience wanting to link Henry to Mars, the Roman god of war. This empowering of Henry by Shakespeare is consistent and constant in the prologue, where the Chorus asks the audience to forgive “this unworthy scaffold” for bringing “forth / So great an object.” This hyperbolic allusion towards the King once more raises the King above common people, beckoning the audience, both contemporary and of the contextual era to know the power and strength Henry held.

If things are rushed, do they not fall? If things are given time, do they not flourish? William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet became the most notable literary representation of love and life gone too fast. Shakespeare prominently outlines this concept throughout the play by introducing love at first sight, ending with the death of the two protagonists. Additionally, Romeo and Juliet is ironic in which the play indicates the power of rationalism by Benvolio’s attitude.
Ebonyrose Campbell Ms. Milliner EES21QH-03 January 18, 2017 Final Paper The play “Othello” written by William Shakespeare alludes to social injustices between not only women and men but also racially. The characters in this play are very dynamic in their emotions and Shakespeare showcases this multiple times throughout the whole play. The characters’ use of grit and a growth mindset helps to explain the cause of their demise. Grit and having a growth mindset go hand in hand with improving the qualities of one’s life. Using grit allows you to plod on to achieve whatever goals you have for yourself despite feeling as though you are being left behind.
In Henrik Ibsen’s A Doll’s House, the three-act play, set in 19th century Norway, explores the progress of Nora’s marriage as she attempts to hide her debt and forgery from her husband. Ibsen conveyed social commentary on gender roles and societal expectations, a topic still in controversy, through the use of symbolism, irony, and dramatic elements. In A Doll’s House, Ibsen presents the problems associated with the position of women in a man’s world of business as his central focus, even if other social or individual problems become more prominent as the play progresses. Ibsen, in his working notes, observed that “...a woman cannot be herself in today’s society”, since society in the 19th century, particularly in Norway, was exclusively male.

Ibsen’s play A Doll 's House, written in 1879, examines the importance of social class and the expectations that follow. A Doll’s House tells the story of married couple, Torvald and Nora Helmer who strive to fulfill social expectation. However, the ending is known to be a shock for some, as roles reverse and Nora comes to realize that she has been mistreated like a doll throughout the whole marriage. Throughout A Dolls House by Henrik Ibsen, doll 's and the dolls house are symbolic of how Nora is a submissive wife controlled and dominated by Torvald, and both are repressed by societal standards. Torvald exhibits patriarchy in his relationship with Nora as he calls her pet names and controls her eating.
This of course did not help their cause, the best measure they could have taken would have been admitting fault and how there has been a pressure from various groups within their ranks to abide by the new policy.

Realism is a literary technique practiced by many schools which denote a particular kind of subject matter, especially the representation of middle-class life. Realism, as its name suggests, is about portraying real life. In Shakespeare’s play Othello, realism is depicted through the flaws and doubts of the protagonist Othello. Shakespeare impacts the modern day audience, as the portrayal of what it meant to be human in the Elizabethan age which is still relevant today. In Marie de France’s romance “Lanval” is the story of an outcast and through its plot, Marie explores the theme of the great love that cannot exist in conjunction with the real world.
In Shakespearean plays, women are shown as dynamic individuals with potent messages about moral norms and just rights. Shakespeare presents his understanding on the “essence” of femininity through a character known as Beatrice in his play titled Much Ado About Nothing. Beatrice developed her façade that is presented in the beginning of Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing through, what is referenced as, past experience. Beatrice left her façade behind and expressed her true self through Hero and Ursula’s cunning trick that taunted her to supposedly marry Benedick. To begin with, Beatrice’s true self is a vulnerable one revealed through Hero and Ursula where she immediately is bound to the weaknesses and sensitivities of love.
The drama is able to advice readers more or less with the meaning of gender, love, and fate, and it will provide examples of how our society is today. Furthermore, our protagonist, Romeo, masculinity is questioned throughout the play. For example: Romeo fears that his love for Juliet softened him, “Thy beauty hath made me effeminate/And in my temper soften’d valour’s steel” (Shakespeare 111.i.). Secondly, Laurence impute guilt against Romeo of being “unseemly woman in a seemly man” and verbalize that his tears are “womanish” (Shakespeare 111.iii.). Another example, is Mercutio, he enjoys fencing, quarreling, and joking.
