he had Puck drug them for his enjoyment and to help out Helena who he takes pity on. He takes pity on her because no one loves her, and because he feels bad about Demetrius brushing her off. Lysander, Demetrius, Helena, and Hermia have a crazy and complicated love square that gets even more complicated throughout the play. Being crazy in love is a major theme of A Midsummer Night’s dream by Shakespeare. This is shown by many characters throughout the play.
The Holocaust is not an easy subject to talk about, let alone read an entire book or watch an full movie on the affair. Yet, to present the despicable situation in a tasteful manor that not only causes people to think, but also creates such strong emotion is truly brilliant writing. That is exactly what is found in both Night and “Life is Beautiful.” Both of these works are masterpieces in their own right. It is truly a spectacle that both of these works cover the same harsh topics yet feel so completely different. Night and “Life is Beautiful” are both similarly fantastic works, however, it is their differences that make them stand out.
Stanley who represents realism in this novel and play pops Blanche’s illusion bubble through seeing the realism in scene ten he says: “not once did you pull any wool over this boy’s eyes!” Not only Stanley had broken her world of illusion, but also Mitch who is influenced by Stanley and destroys the protection of darkness by exposing her to the bright light. Stanley bringing up the past contributes to how Blanches ends up, alone and insane expressing the theme that what happened in the past determines the present, and illusion and fantasy directly correlate. Though reality triumphs over fantasy in A Streetcar Named Desire, when the truth comes colliding down on Blanche, she has no choice but to go insane ultimately avoiding the acceptance of
Relationships between Romeo, Juliet and the Friar are some of the most potent and detailed in Romeo and Juliet. The story would be completely different without them. Another way that fate has contributed to the overall depth and genius of this story, is how the reader interprets the word. Fate also means the end or death of someone, and Romeo and Juliet’s fate has forever changed the lives of the Montagues and Capulets, disintegrating their rivalry. Change is one of the big themes in Romeo and Juliet, and fate plays right into that theme making it very noticeable and potent.
Claudius decides to send his nephew to England because he recognizes that Hamlet isn’t mentally crazy just revenge crazy. Hamlet’s madness throughout the play was created by his intellectual and able mind as a ploy to ultimately get him something he wanted, revenge. His craziness was not real, just as Alice’s assumed craziness in Wonderland was not real. As the Cheshire cat says, “We’re all mad here,” we’re all a little crazy. All the characters in Hamlet are a little crazy and Hamlet’s intentional craziness is mistaken for real insanity when actually he is just as sane as everyone
Here Juliet means that when she learned Romeos name it was too late, she has fallen under a spell of love. There are a few negative thoughts about Romeo and Juliet’s forbidden relationship. Friar Lawrence even warns Romeo to be careful about the marriage of him and Juliet “These violent delights have violent ends” (Shakespeare 856). Friar means that this is a marriage between these two families filled with hatred along with this history between them, the happy couple won’t last for long, and surely this will end badly. Romeo is impulsive, not only when he kisses Juliet, but also when he talks to Tybalt “Tybalt, the reason that I have to love the doth much excuse the appertaining rage” (Shakespeare 865).
To reduce the description of the film "Death Note" to one word, it would be ‘disappointing’. This is simply because the film does a mediocre job at grasping the intellectual depth of a story of two ingenious teens from one of the highest rated mangas of all time. Adam Wingard portrays a tragic teenage romance about a cat-and-mouse chase between L, (Lakeith Stanfield) who the investigator and Light (Nat Wolff). Wingard explores the theme of good and evil and the grey area in between as well as justice. It is a film adaptation of the popular manga also known by the same name of “Death Note.” The film follows the story of a bland character, Light Turner.
Michael Frayn wrote the partly autobiographical novel ‘Spies’ in 2002 to explore what we would have made, as children, of an adult life. During 1940, there was a fixed idea about masculinity. Men that didn’t fight in war felt emasculated as called as chicken or many timid names. Perhaps Mr. Hayward is a comment on the unhealthy effect of this stereotype, which makes men being more aggressive to overcompensate their absent. In the novel ‘Spies’, Mr. Hayward’s barbaric behaviour is like an 'ogre ' because it is preceded by a sense of rudeness, giving Keith a false sense of family.
Blinding Ambition The solar eclipse is fascinating and draws attention, yet it gives off rays that are blinding. Ambitions have the same effect on an individual, as they become blinded by their fascinations and desires and lose sight of reality. In William Shakespeare’s play, Macbeth, characters that pursue harmful ambitions and suffer from consequences. Three witches foretell that Macbeth will become king. At first, he is a loyal and courageous Thane for Duncan; however, he becomes deceitful once he decides to kill the king.
Romeo’s love for Juliet has grown strong, illustrated when he says, “But my true love is grown to such excess / I cannot sum up some of half my wealth” (3.1.33–34). Romeo's banishment and inability to see Juliet is Romeo's worst fear come true. “Calling death ‘banished,’ / Thou cutt’st my head off with a golden ax / And smilest upon the stroke that murders me” is a metaphor comparing banishment with death by a golden ax, used to display how dreadful Romeo’s punishment is to him, a theme heavily emphasized (Shakespeare III.iii. 22-24). Being apart from Juliet is a miserable life for Romeo, especially when he is the only one unable to see her.
