Although Oberon shows his sensitive emotions at times, he doesn’t enjoy it without any pranks for the sake of his laughter. When Oberon is willing to make things his ways, he occasionally starts acting to his wife Titania like he’s in need for help and becomes disturbing. When Titania doesn’t accept to give Oberon the indian boy, he returns to his natural personality and pranks her. Oberon uses his magical potion on his wife to trick her for falling in love with an ass head, so he can claim the indian boy after she becomes unattached with him. Although Oberon can be seen in many different perspectives, Shakespeare expresses Oberon as the king of
Early modern slavery is typically defined as the forced labor of millions of Africans between the 16th and 19th centuries. It was filled with brutality, sickness, and inhumanity perpetrated by white, colonialist Europeans who were searching for wealth in a foreign land through cash crops and servitude. However, there was a different kind of slavery perpetrated in the African continent: servitude where “they were only prisoners of war, or…had been convicted of kidnapping or adultery” (Equiano, 30). Olaudah Equiano’s narrative, published in 1789, reveals a story of slavery perpetrated by his own people. This revelation brings to the light the difference in societal standing and ultimate economic worth of the individuals.
It would be nice to keep you, but I 've got to be good--and keep my hands off children.”(89) Blanche noticed the paper boy who came because he was a young one. She immediately started flirting with him and the reader could tell he was somewhat uncomfortable with the way Blanche had approached or pushed herself off on him. In the beginning of the play when Blanche first meets Stanley, it 's noticeable that there is the uneasy feeling when the two are around each other. “...Blanche is terrified of Stanley…”(Dace), and this is shown by the way she acts when she is around Stanley. From the very start, Blanche was never really comfortable around stanley to begin with.
He tells Olivia that she is foolish for fake-mourning in the manner that she is; yet he is able to lighten up Olivia’s mood when she is angry with him. He tells Toby it is alright to have some fun but his drinking and merrymaking quickly becomes too much and is not appreciated by many of those around him. As far as Malvolio is concerned, Feste, along with most of the other characters, thinks he is too serious and needs an attitude change and does not hesitate to let him know it. Shakespeare’s characters are as flawed as they are virtuous. It is a reflection of reality that drives the plots of his works.

Similarly, the Awlad ‘Ali women use humour as a tool of resistance, making fun of men and manhood through their “sexually irreverent discourse” (Abu-Lughod 1990: 45). For example, one of the older women in the camp mocks the Bedouin preference for the birth of boys over girls by saying, “The boy’s name is exalted. He has a little pisser that dangles” (46). These are small, light-hearted acts of insubordination, yet they embody feelings of dissatisfaction with the status quo. And in both cases, weakness of character or physical attributes can often be the butt of their jokes.
The traditions connected the people to country, community, family and friends. Many of these traditions are still passed down in oral form from generation to generation despite the growing ethnocentrism that looks at Caribbean popular culture as weak, corrupt and primitive. This is the same feeling of superiority in the European dominant group culture that pushed racial discrimination during the 17th and 18th centuries, when European countries kept Africans enslaved because of the belief that the Europeans culture, customs and ethics were superior to Africans, Arawaks, Caribs, and East Indian cultures. Over the years Trinidad and Tobago’s Africans, Arawaks, Caribs, and East Indian culture fused into new forms of popular music. Chantwell singers name changed to calypsonian, and calypso is widely identified as popular music throughout Trinidad and the Caribbean.
