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).
The underlying theme of the play, Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare was the clash between the company pursuing their personal desires or deciding to conform to what is socially expected. The circumstances of this affray were on display when Romeo presented his plot of marrying Juliet to Friar Laurence. The consequences of Romeo deciding to pursue personal desire were also on display when displayed his disapproval to his punishment for extirpating Tybalt. These instances culminate Shakespeare's idea of that the pursuit of personal desire not always rewarding the aspirant. The asininity of carelessly pursuing your personal desires and not thinking about the ramifications was on display when Romeo presented his notion of espousing Juliet.
This creates a bit of confusion, because it is unclear whether Hamlet is cautious or merely indecisive. Laertes is clearly confident in himself, and benefits from the constant encouragement from Claudius. It is said that “Laertes’ character becomes …. more evil as the play progresses” (McGee 156),because he consistently takes action. According to Arthur McGee, “like Polonius, he [Laertes] condones the incestuous marriage” (McGee 153), which is another difference between Laertes and Hamlet.
In A Midsummer Night’s Dream by William Shakespeare, is not powerful and is not something that the characters in the story value. They play around with love and they use it to manipulate people to get what they want. One way love is stupid is when Oberon uses a flower to make Titania fall in love with another man, just so he can get what he wants. Love is also supposed to be ridiculous when Egues goes
In his play Much Ado About Nothing, Shakespeare indicates that love cannot grow in the presence of pride. The poor Benedick shows this when he refused to fall in love, until he lost his self-centered pride. Beatrice does the same when she says, “Stand I condemned for pride and scorn so much? Contempt farewell, and maiden pride, adieu! No glory lives on behind the back of such” (3.2.
"One person's craziness is another person's reality," said Tim Burton, American film director and writer. Shakespeare shows how one character's craziness affects all the other characters in Hamlet. This craziness causes them to hide their true feelings, thoughts, and motives by showing false truths. While others even lose themselves to someone else's life, when their love ones die or when that one person messes with them. Shakespeare shows this through Rosencrantz/Guildenstern, Hamlet, Gertrude, and Fortinbras.
While Macbeth plainly states in asides and dialogue with his wife that he is planning to mislead other characters, Hamlet does not openly speak of his tricks. One of the most intriguing and puzzling parts of the play is Hamlet’s antic disposition that he speaks of in the first act: “As I perchance hereafter shall think meet/ To put an antic disposition on” (I, v, 171-72). Even by the end of Hamlet, a lot is left unclear. While the topic of Hamlet’s antic disposition has arrived at somewhat of a general consensus, certain details regarding his “madness” are fuzzy to say the least. Many things, such as the legitimacy of the ghost of Hamlet’s father and his message for Hamlet, Gertrude’s knowledge of Claudius’s actions, and Hamlet’s hesitancy to avenge his father’s murder remain topics for debate.
He then fixed what he did wrong. This is the the final way shakespeare should how his play was like a dream. There are many different meanings for dreams. You might think you don 't dream, but that 's wrong because everyone dreams. The play shakespeare wrote called “A midsummer night” is kind of like one big dream.
when the ending is taken in light of Miss Prism’s commentary, one should start to wonder what Wilde is trying to say in ending his play in such a clichéd manner. Though the main characters’ actions portray them to be scatterbrained and foolish, taking trivial matters seriously and serious matters trivially, they haven’t necessarily done anything terrible, as their actions do little to harm others inside or outside of their social circles, and they haven’t done much good, either. Not only does Wilde’s ending follow the “rules of fiction”, he follows these rules so judiciously that Earnest takes on the air of parody. Earnest’s plot follows an outline of a cheesy romance story—two or more individuals fall in love at first sight, some conflict
Although, the effect of those memories may not be to the same extreme extent as on Hamlet, purpose relies strongly on memory. In the play, Hamlet stated, “Purpose is but a slave to memory” (3.2.176). Memory drives action, which is seen in the play how the memory of Hamlet’s father and, addition to the lack of memory of the other characters, guide Hamlet’s journey into madness. Not only does the word slave enforce the idea of being under the domain of something (OED), but it also indicates a lack of control. And this may relate to why Hamlet professed his madness as the sperate entity, because he lacks the control over it.
In William Shakespeare 's classic play, Romeo and Juliet, there are two families that have a bitter rivalry but, there is a little love in the air that ends with severe depression. There is one person to blame for letting the depression get worse. Friar Lawrence thinks that everyone should like each other and not dislike anyone. He also makes potions to change people and not letting time change them. Friar Lawrence is undoubtedly to blame for the tragic, depressing events that unfold the “loving” play, Romeo and Juliet.
By using that guilt time and time again it achieves its desired results. You get some victories. However, you also create resentment and anger. By playing on people’s guilt you don’t create a culture or atmosphere where people care about you as a person. You create a relationship founded on coercion.
