“And so the house came to be haunted by the unspoken phrase: There must be more money! There must be more money! The children could hear it all the time, though nobody said it aloud “(Lawrence 411). All people in life are obsessed with money, whether the money is needed for groceries, bills, or frivolous items. The real power of money shows itself when people let greed poison and control their lives.
Going from your parents buying everything for you, to having to buy everything yourself can be a hard transition. That transition may take some self-control. Working hard and saving the money I earn will get me what I need. Working hard will get me what I need, but it’s my choice if I’m going to save it or buy something I don’t really need. When you have very little money is when you will realise that you need to save your money.
It turned out that Natalia Gogoleva and Dmitry Cherednichenko, who act in the play and I breath in the same air, believe in the same ideas in spite of thousands kilometers between us. I watched a video record of the play in Miami, and saw it with my own eyes at the festival “Smolensk Arch” in April this year. This production and its actors are very valuable to me. We understood each other, and this is the most important. The play didn’t get the festival awards, but it was nominated.
It’s extraordinary how much money we spend on things that are completely unnecessary to our survival. Not every house needs a TV in every room and not all students need a personal computer. However we as people are greedy by nature and therefor do end up spending tons of money on things like that. This is promoted more and more through social media, TV, magazines, newspapers, etc… Yet we could be spending more (if not all) of our extra money of helping others who have nothing. Peter Unger a New York University Philosopher calculated the cost to save a child’s life “By his calculation, $200 in donations would help a sickly two-year-old child transform into a healthy six-year-old” (Singer).
In William Shakespeare’s Sonnet 151 he writes, “Love is too young to know what conscience is;” (CITE). This quote describes the character, Mrs. Popov, in Anton Chekhov’s play, “The Brute”, because her moral standards changed in the name of love. This play is about how a woman stayed dedicated to her deceased husband, but ironically falls for the first man, Mr. Smirnov, she sees after seven months of being cooped up in her house. The theme of this drama is that love fades because by the end of the play she’s moved on with Mr. Smirnov. Chekhov uses symbolism, his title, and the character’s sudden epiphany to prove this theme throughout the story.
One way or another, someday the planet we all know, and love today will eventually be destroyed, consequently causing humanity to perish with it. No matter how many people say that money spent of space travel could be used to feed the starving millions around the world, it doesn’t make a difference because if we don’t spend enough on space exploration,
We can see that Shakespeare relates the young love to impulsiveness and rush and represents how this is lamented. Finally, the last external aspect that influences their love, but not the least important, is the fate. It seems that from the beginning their fate is marked by external aspects, so they are not the responsible of their tragedy. The play starts with the introduction of the term ‘star-crossed lovers’ (Prologue). The idea of being “dolls” manipulated by the stars and destine is transmitted along the whole play, even through the words of Romeo and Juliet who have several intuitions.
• Treplyov, Konstantin Gavrilovich: Treplyov lives in his mother’s shadow as a play writer. Because Arkadina is such a selfish mother, Treplyov is burdened with a life of troubles and insecurities. He is madly in love with Nina, but unfortunately Nina does not have the same feelings for him. Treplyov blames her lack of affection on his plays which illuminates his insecure character. •
If she knew she will face this unexpected situation, she will definitely save some money when she was financially stable in the first place. But, now it is too late because she had to starve every day and walk from place to place looking for a new job as she did not have any single cent left in her bank account. II. I never thought that saving money is crucial until I came across this story. III.
