Love is inconstant and even likened to war because it can cause jealousy between each other, it turns us into selfish people and it can overpower one’s mind. All these statements can lead a person to act violently as shown in Shakespeare’s book, AMNSD. Being in love can cause jealousy which can lead to the likeliness of war between one another. In the book, Helena is extremely jealous of Hermia because she loves Demetrius but Demetrius loves Hermia. In Act 1, Helena tell the reader that she's jealous of Hermia because Demetrius is in love with her friend instead.
According to google, an optimist is “a person who tends to be hopeful and confident about the future or the success of something.” Bottom, a mechanical in the play A Midsummer Night’s Dream by William Shakespeare, was not the wittiest in the play. However his optimism, humour, and confidence assist him by making Pyramus And Thisbe and interesting play within the play. Because Bottom was humourous, his actions make the reader die of laughter.
This quote proves that specifically Romeo’s love for Juliet was based on her looks rather then her personality and relationships that start like that are bound to end. Love should come more internally than externally and in their case it does not make their love impure. In short Romeo and Juliet's love was not real and not meant to last. We see this when Romeo and Juliet love each others looks rather than personalities, when Romeo loves juliet because his ego needs a boost and when Juliet loves romeo because she can not have him. To conclude Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet love was unforsaken, unholy and untrue No matter how hard an expert stargazer looks Romeo and Juliet isn't written in the
He has much self-doubt about it which prevents him from wanting to express his love for Roxane. He believes his nose prevents him from even being loved by an ugly woman. The plot was lucid, maybe because it’s a professional play. It was very clear and understandable to what was going on in the play. The introduction to Cyrano was very interesting.
By what means can a character that is absent in the greater part of the play be viewed as the primary one? The appropriate response is truly simple and straightforward: in light of the fact that without his mistakes, the plot is lost and silly. Since without his naughtiness, the play would not be a drama. Puck is the person who ties and unfastens, distorts and makes as he pleases. What's more, in spite of the fact that he has made all that bedlam, toward the end he settle his mistakes by reestablishing the love adjust in the two couples of lovers, unthinkable without his intervention.
A Midsummer Night’s Dream is described as one of William Shakespeare’s comedies based on the way the characters behave. Some events that happened actually affect the light tone of play, specifically when Puck stated that “Oh Lord, what fools these mortals be”. The foolishness of the lovers, the players, and even the fairies slightly affect the tone of the play into different theme yet, they didn’t really have a great impact on the main theme which is after all, a comedy. There are a number of examples with the foolishness of the lovers which sound like a tragic event but really are comic. For example Helena says “And I am sick when I look not on you” (2.1.37).
This highlights the dramatic irony because the audience knows of Desdemona’s faithfulness yet they are powerless in stopping Iago’s plan. Othello’s actions are motivated in the belief that Desdemona has been dishonest, however; Iago has blinded Othello with his dishonesty. Othello’s quest for honesty allows him to be manipulated by the fear of dishonesty and therefore he becomes oblivious to falsehood. Through Othello, Shakespeare raises the idea of honest reputation, and how quickly it can be ruined by dishonesty in the shape of
Why did William Shakespeare even add comic relief? The Nurse’s sense of humour relieves tension in several areas of play. If the tension in the play continues to build up, then the audience will expect the tragedies that are bound to happen. By adding comic relief, it lessens the anxiety in the audience, most likely making them laugh. Her bawdy and crude jokes are what releases this tension.
entirely for pleasure now.”Once again, marriage is exposed as something you wouldn’t want or ask for under any circumstances. Wilde makes fun at it and once remarks how living without a spouse or company makes you live in a better way and more happily, although, for most people real life the death of their spouses is one of the worst things that could occur to them. This comparison allows the reader to evaluate the farce in The Importance of Being Earnest, and how Wilde portrays wholly improbable real life situations as completely possible in his novel, depicting his characters as totally crude. Going more in depth with her frivolousness (mentioned before) we point out the quote, “I hope not Algernon… fortunately he is accustomed to that.” Once again, the use of satire, Lady Bracknell is anything but earnest. She cares so much about appearances, and as mentioned before, takes marriage as something unimportant, she sends her husband to dine away from the family, so the dining table looks pretty and put together.
Deception and suspicion are powerful tools that can use trust and mistrust as weapons. Many think that the most powerful weapon is trust and honesty in a relationship but unfortunately suspense and deception over power it in most cases. This can be seen in the play Othello by William Shakespeare, when Othello gets tricked by Iago into thinking his wife is cheating on him and many more cases. In the article How Iago Explains the World, by Lee Siegel it highlights the fact that Iago’s deception and lies work out for him and that he in fact sees the world the right way. Deception overrules honesty in many occasions especially in Shakespeare’s tragedies.
