Love is the most powerful emotion, making it the most dangerous. Taming of the shrew written by William Shakespeare in the late 16th Century, has had many different adaptations two of which are: The 1967 version of Taming of the shrew directed by Franco Zeffirelli and the cult classic 1999 version 10 things I hate about you both of which shine and interesting light on the play is it an act of misogyny or an act of a man liberating a woman from society. I believe that it is an act of misogyny and will be discussing this in the following presentation through the comparison of both films. In Franco Zefferelli’s version of Taming of the shrew there were many characters, but as for the difference in time periods there are only few that I would resonate with, for that reason I chose the character Bianca, as in Taming of the shrew (1967) she is very stuck up and obnoxious, sure she wants to marry, but it 's because of her constant complaining that gives me this opinion. Her 10 things I hate about you counterpart is also unbearable and complains more than her 1967 character and she is always getting angry or whiney if it means trying to be normal.
William Shakespeare creates Juliet as a fearless young woman who would do anything for her romance. Juliet pushes all societal views and stereotypes aside, causing a ripple in the Elizabethan time. The main manner in which Juliet shows her feminism is at the Capulet Ball. Her eloquent use of metaphorical words pursue Romeo’s interest, causing their love to fall undoubtedly into place. Juliet speaks in a very revealing way to capture the attention of Romeo.“Good pilgrim, you do wrong your hand too much,which mannerly devotion shows in this; for saints have hands that pilgrims ' hands do touch,and palm to
Tone is a very powerful and moving tool for both Heller and Hemingway in their novels. In Catch-22, comedy through absurdity is the overwhelming tone. Heller uses the comedic tone to explain that “[w]ar is irrational”, and leave the reader with a “catharsis in which the grimness of war provides the dominant memory”. Heller does so by creating absurd situations that may begin as funny, however leave one with a “bitter pessimism” (Hasley). An example of this is the tale of Captain Half-Oat, whose family had been Native Americans who, whenever they settled, would happen to settle directly over an oil deposit and be evicted by oil companies.
In the story of Othello by William Shakespeare, there are both many underlying and blatant prejudices, stereotypes, and manipulations. The main manipulator and antagonist, Iago, reveals many of these through manipulating the primary character Othello, his wife Desdemona, the Lieutenant Cassio, Desdemona’s father Brabantio, and other minor characters. While Iago himself is a shrewd conniver, he exploits other people’s selfish intents and views to further himself in status. When he manipulates them, he brings to light their more sinister aspects. Iago is a despicable but knowledgeable person, but when he reveals his knowledge of the people around him, he shows that not everyone, including himself, has the best intentions or has unblinded perspectives.
However, these various aftermaths are a result of one main outcome: power. By imposing fear, one becomes very powerful. However, the use of this excessive authority, causes one to be cruel and abusive. Through Lord of the Flies and The Hunger Games, the atrocious consequence of fear can be observed. Indeed, both books display the awful consequence that may derive from fear.
Hence the theme of reputation is complex in nature of arts. Cleopatra, Stalin, Dalai Lama, Michael Faraday are the significant figures of reputation. The essay is about a Diva who attained reputation. The term Diva is attained from an Italian word which means Goddess. It denotes a person of great vocal facility and of
Antigone considers conflicting with her uncle 's decision. This is exorbitantly vicious on the grounds that to believe is savage as of now, yet to consider playing out a fierce activity is twice as deadly. Law depends on the connection of "summon and submission" and to conflict with the embodiment of law is to break it, which is savage (Arendt
As the story progresses it becomes exceptionally evident the role external conflict plays in creating Montresor’s character. To begin, Montresor mentions “the thousand injuries of Fortunato” and the revenge he is determined to get from the most recent injury, an insult (Poe 543). By Montresor choosing to open the story with remarks about Fortunato’s wrong doings towards him, it’s clear that he holds a grudge. These conflicts between the two men throughout their friendship have had such an impression on Montresor that it’s over taken him – it’s all he can think about; thus, he immediately mentions these conflicts at the beginning of the story. In result, Montresor as a character appears quite hostile and as a narrator appears unreliable.
