In Shakespear’s play Romeo and Juliet, we find that many of the innocent characters get killed. Paris is unfortunately one of these characters. Paris is the most eligible bachelor in the city of Verona. The Nurse even says, “He’s a wax of a man,” (A1, S3). At the beginning of the play, we find that the Capulets throw a party for Paris hoping that he will one day marry their only daughter, Juliet.
Ask Advice from Adaline- Adaline, I fear I have created a storm of trouble between the Montagues and the Capulets. The young heirs of the houses have fallen deeply in love and have asked me to marry them. Filled with great doubt about the marriage, I married the star-crossed lovers after meeting each other twelve hours earlier. I made the assumption that Romeo and Juliet’s love had the power to end the feud between the Montagues and the Capulets. Romeo, the husband of Juliet, has slain the Capulet’s beloved and murderous Tybalt.
Then to see another similarity would be to look into the envy of power and tragedies within, Othello and Richard II. Iago thinks, Othello granted Cassio a lieutenant position he deserved and he feels both betray him with his wife. He sits out for revenge of all with his jealous envy and ultimately ends the play in multiple tragic deaths.
Revelation of Lies Edward Albee’s Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? is a deranged and mysterious story that holds a stunning finish. George and Martha, a middle aged married couple who struggles with their relationship, invites Nick and Honey, a younger married couple they met at a faculty party, over to their household near midnight to enjoy drinks and have fun.
A Streetcar Named Desire was produced and directed in 1951 by Elia Kazan. Based on the play written by Tennessee Williams, the film follows Blanche DuBois as she leaves her beloved hometown, Belle Reeve, and moves in with her sister, Stella Kowalski and husband, Stanley. Blanches flirtatious but traumatized personality causes problems for Stella and Stanley whose relationship is based off of sexual desires. Blanche is going through a battle in which she finds herself guilty for her late husbands suicide and this distress eventually leads to a huge conflict in the Kowalski household. Vivien Leigh played the dramatic Blanch DuBois and received an Oscar for the best female in a leading role.
After that he was banished from his homeland, Juliet is forced to marry and the two lovers found out that both supposedly died so they both commit suicide. Shakespeare makes a point that both Romeo and Juliet make impulsive decisions that lead to their death. During the second scene of Act II, Romeo and Juliet decide to get married after having met hours before at the Capulet party.
Tho it is hard to see until the very end of the play, A Raisin in the Sun written by Lorraine Hansberry shows Walter Younger is a big dreamer and wants to be rich. Younger is a very selfish man and shows his selfishness through his sacrificing of the family money. When the Younger family inherits ten thousand dollars from the death of a family member, Walter goes crazy trying to get his hands on the money to invest in the liquor store downtown. His selfishness is shown when Mama gives him what is left of the life insurance and he is told to save a generous amount of money for Beneatha’s schooling and then he can keep the rest for saving up. Instead of doing what he is told to do, he invests in the liquor store with his two other friends.
In my opinion, I think that the movie version and the play version, of Much Ado About Nothing by Shakespeare, are not very different. They have a lot of similarities for example; Hero and Claudio met and thought they should be together, Claudio thinks he saw Hero cheating on him with another man. So therefore at their wedding he demanded for her to die because of her relations with another man. Claudio realizes he was wrong about what she did and he had to marry her cousin without seeing her at all till they’re married.
In his play The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet, William Shakespeare sets quite a high standard for romance and tragic novels after his time. The two star-crossed lovers, Romeo and Juliet, have a secret, forbidden affair due to the fact that their families are long-time rivals. They seek Friar Lawrence to marry them. Shortly after their marriage, a brawl erupts between Romeo, Mercutio, and Tybalt with the final result of Mercutio being slain by Tybalt, who is then slain by Romeo. As a punishment, the Prince then publicly announces Romeo’s banishment.
Let it go. That is what a lot characters in films have to do when losing loved ones. Death scenes are common in many types of films. This paper will rhetorically analyze and compare the director’s choices of film elements appeal to their audience’s ethos, pathos, and logos in Frozen (2013) and The Snow Queen (2012). One scene where the directors make some similar yet also very different choices in film elements is the scene where both of the sibling’s parents die.
Looking back through history, one can find faults with virtually every culture. Whether it’s the ancient cultures that practiced human sacrifice, or Nazi Germany that tried to exterminate the Jewish people, we can always look back and find something that was amiss. What we often fail to realize, however, is that the people living in those societies weren’t aware of their wrongdoings any more than we are. “The Semplica Girl Diaries”, a short story by George Saunders, illustrates how every culture is oblivious to its own faults, and Saunders is trying to show Americans their own fault, namely, how our fondness of materialism changes the way we look at people.
In “The Story of an Hour,” the author uses symbolism, and irony for the main character, Mrs. Mallard. Throughout this third person omniscient short story, there are turns of emotions and ideas that are given to the reader. Alongside that, there is irony possessed in the story as well as symbolism. The use of symbolism gives the reader an understanding of Mrs. Mallards emotions through the story. And the irony shows the turn of events later shown in an interesting case of events.
