Hamlet, by William Shakespeare’s most notorious play, depicts the story of a young man who lives in Denmark and sets out to avenge his father, killing his uncle who is now king, which was told to him by his father’s ghost: “The serpent that did sting thy father 's life/ Now wears his crown” (1.5). The play is set up to make a cast of characters, through foils, give the character of Hamlet more life and thus enhance the play. Fortinbras and Laertes are the predominant foils to Hamlet; they will be analyzed and compared in the following essay, weighing out the importance of this foil effect to the plot & the effect of the play. Prince Fortinbras of Norway and Laertes depict the exact opposite of Hamlet’s character. All of these characters seek revenge for the death of their fathers by taking the matter into their own hands: Fortinbras seeks war against Denmark (former King Hamlet killed Fortinbras’ father), while Laertes returns from Paris to Eslionor to fight for his dead father 's honor.

And unfortunately, this is more or less the only way we are able to view history, simply because it has all happened many many years ago. But if we were able to look at history the way we look at our lives today, as not just a series of facts, but as a real era with real, living people, then we can gain an enormous amount of insight into what a certain period in history was truly like. We can begin to view history this way by studying how one event influences another. One incredibly rich and marvelous culture to which you can apply this method of studying history is Rome, and how it 's religion affected the development of culture.

Rationale I chose to write a news article about the double suicide in William Shakespeare’s “Romeo and Juliet” in order to touch on the main themes expressed in the play and illustrate their perpetual relevance. Shakespeare’s work is fascinating to me as it is timeless and distinctive in the way it addresses universal themes. In my assignment, I aim to portray the lessons one can take away from the play and discuss the correlation between love and hate. I chose to do this by reflecting on the double suicide, starting with a description of the situation—emphasising the roles love and hate played in the tragic affair—and then becoming more general, discussing their effect on Veronan society. I link the past with the present through a statement made by Prince Escalus in commemoration of the suicides.

Cassius who is an nobleman of Rome, wanted Brutus to join him and the conspirators in overthrowing Caesar.

Unfortunately, Plinia’s husband died soon after the birth. Pliny adopted the boy and renamed the boy after himself, known as Gaius Plinius Caecilius Secundus; we regard him as Pliny the Younger (Lendering). Pliny the Younger would be raised and educated in Pliny’s Roman home. Much of what we know of Pliny the Elder comes from the writing of Pliny the Younger.
