The audience can feel differently about the surprises or situational irony for the characters because of who they are and what they do throughout the story. O. Henry’s “Ransom of Red Chief” shows a humorous case of situational irony. Guy de Maupassant’s “The Necklace” can either create a sympathetic or lousy feeling for the characters of the story. Both authors from both stories create an unexpected twist which leads into conflicts which then leads into some circumstances. O. Henry and Guy de Maupassant both have a similar yet completely different case of situational
Considering this movie is made by the same man who made CRUMB and BAD SANTA, insane might be what he was going for. It is definitely a darkly comedic look at underachievement. At times this movie seems to be struggling to express itself like the summer high school art students. On the other hand, the film 's rambling struggles may be an immersive reflection of the characters ' struggles. Overall, this film is more interesting than entertaining, and that can be a good thing.
Mercutio makes fun of Romeo because he does not believe that dreams can become visions of impending danger. “ True. I’m talking about dreams, which are the products of a brain that’s doing nothing. Dreams are nothing but silly imagination, as thin as air, and less predictable than the wind, which sometimes blows on the frozen north and then gets angry and blows south”(1.iv.97-107). Romero is a lovestruck man forever trying to find his love and Mercutio resents love and fills his needs and desires with a good party and jokes.
Hughes purposely juxtaposes the “dancing girl” in the quatrain with two prominent women figures to illustrate the transformative effects of jazz. Within the cabaret—filled with music—not only does the city become a site of trees and rivers, but someone as monotonous as a dancer in a club, becomes as eminent as Cleopatra or Eve. Even more, the rhyme scheme also changes in the quintet. Now, the rhyme scheme is EFDGD, and the rhyming words, “bold and gold”, are continued from the quatrain. There is a slight change, however, similar to the change of the dancing girl into an Eve or Cleopatra.
Othello 's race differentiates him from all other characters and makes him very self-conscious. It makes him work harder for his reputation, so he has the possibility to be regarded as equal to the white people that dominate Venice. Perhaps this is the reason for his success, but the prejudice that is being projected onto him, especially considering his marriage to Desdemona leads to a tragic outcome. Another topic that is being repeated through the play is magic. Othello is accused of using magic to woo his future wife, merely because of his racial disparity, and therefore is called a “pagan” (Shakespeare, 2016, Act 1 Scene 1).
What a moment." (Pg 153) I disliked the fact that Theo dissed the girl just because his friend wouldn 't like it. "He wasn 't exactly looking for a girlfriend, and besides, April would be devastated if he began chasing a flirt like Hallie." (Pg 153) I also liked that the Boone 's were intelligent enough to dance around the illegal immigrant thing, save the trial, save Roberto, and give Julio 's family a home. "He explained that his parents were offering the deal of a lifetime.
So despite the cross-dressing, and the occasional alcoholism displayed, the film’s morals are firmly conservative. There’s no endorsement of drag-queening to be found here, just a steadfast belief in doing whatever is necessary for good old capitalistic gain; all that is peppered with men in lipstick for jarring comedic effect on the intended 50’s mainstream audience. This film is many things, but modernist it is not. The director may have tried to make some new twists on old themes, but in the end the studio produced a movie based on tried and true values that sell tickets. Like Osgood declares with only a hint of disappointment: “Nobody’s
Lindheim’s Rethinking Sexuality and Class in Twelfth Night, notes that “critics of course usually recognize that marriage is the desired closure for comedy”, (Lindheim, 680). Many characters achieve this “desired closure for comedy”; Olivia marries Sebastian, Viola marries Orsino, and so on, yet Malvolio’s story ends in cruel suffering. It can be argued that his character falls into this tragic situation because of his vices and wickedness, but from this comes the question of who deserves what: Does being a part of a lower class with a pessimistic personality warrant torture? Malvolio may be
Tufan Mısır 21101566 Elit 443 Take Home Mid-Term Option B- Question 6 : Cicero defined comedy as ‘an imitation of life, a mirror of customs, and an image of truth’.

Eddie’s main concerns are his femininity as Rodolpho knows how to sing, cook and dance which weren’t seen as masculine acts in Eddie’s eyes. Eddie looks for ways to dislike Rodolpho as much as possible for no reason. Eddie makes absurd accusations towards Rodolpho, such as Rodolpho only wanting to marry Catherine to gain American citizenship. “He’s bowin to his passport”. Rodolpho gets annoyed that Eddie has created tension and uncertainty between them, he is aware that if Eddie’s obsession takes over he wont be able to have a future with Catherine.
While the movie shows them dating. The problem with showing the viewer that Chris is this wonderful person all the time is that it’s fake. Showing the character’s his faults makes him more relatable. On top of that Chris is very intriguing on his outlooks of the life he lives adding a sort of mysterious enigma to his character. “Some readers admired the boy immensely for his courage and noble ideals; other fulminated that he was a reckless idiot, a wacko, a narcissist who perished out of arrogance and stupidity—and was undeserving of the considerable media attention he received” (Krakauer – Author’s Note).
The sequence is also framed like the first exchange between a slightly prudish, upstanding young woman and an overly aggressive courter, made comedic only by the fact that we know that Daphne is not a woman. Throughout the scene, we see close ups of Daphne’s ankle as it is fondled by Osgood, unwanted sexual advances in the elevator, and consistently suggestive dialogue with a sexual undercurrent. Not only is Wilder flipping the gender script, he is also playing as comedy something that perhaps would not have gotten past the censors otherwise. While this kind of crossdressing comedy certainly reinforces rather than challenges the gender binary, what is significant about the way Daphne is treated in this sequence—and the way Daphne and Josephine are presented on their first reveal as women—is the singular kind of self-awareness Wilder exhibits. He is playing by the book in terms of dialogue and even editing, but there is a knowingness to it, a sly nudge-and-wink to the audience—that because this is a Marilyn Monroe film, and because of the kind of fame that is attached to her and to Tony Curtis, this is what you expect and not what you expect.
The manager of Cloud Nine, Mateo, and Carmen exhibit covert racism. Cover racism is defined as “internal stereotypes and prejudices that people may not even realize that they have, they can be expressed through jokes, comments, and actions” (Bryrar). By using covert racism, the actors are reinforcing and induce the stereotypical Latino stereotypes. It is not okay to allow Super Store to show disrespect towards Latinos. Some people might think this episode is comical, but the episode is incredibly racist towards
While these bonds are typically of a male and female having a romantic relationship, it is not limited to that. In Smith’s movie, Hitch, Alex is hired by a man, Albert, to help him win over a woman who appears to be way out of his league. Alex, who had been heartbroken years before, knew exactly what to say to other men about dating, but when it came to himself, he never dated due to the terrible pain he felt from his last heart break. Just before Alex helps him for the first time, Alex is out in a bar socializing when he overhears a woman being harassed by another man. He walks up and pretends to be her boyfriend to get the man to go away.
Brer Rabbit was reviewed, as a black figure for the African-Americans, the black core of white work. Uncle Remus, however, fell with the author, because he was an offensive stereotype with an obvious regional agenda. Disney’s 1946 film Song of the South interpreted Harris’ stories as simple tales for entertaining children. He was careful to see why readers never understood him, disguising his core vision with a rhetorical misdirection and false
