George Orwell has left a lasting impression on the lives of his audience despite only living for forty-six years. Known for his politically critical novels, Orwell’s material is proven relevant, even today, to explain situations pertaining to society or to government. However, the question of how Orwell understood totalitarianism to the extent that he did remains. On June 25, 1903, this Anglo-French writer, originally named Eric Arthur Blair, was born in Motihari, India, to Richard Blair and Ida Limouzin. At a young age, Orwell was sent to a convent run by French nuns, where his hatred of Catholicism was established.
Publius Ovidius Naso, who is more commonly known as Ovid, was a Roman poet during the reign of Augustus. Ovid wrote the short story of “Pyramus and Thisbe”, which is a tale of two forbidden lovers separated by a wall, that try to be together and instead of living happily ever after they die horrid deaths. William Shakespeare was a master of the arts who danced around in poetry, playwriting, and acting. A hundred years after Ovid wrote his story of forbidden lovers, Shakespeare wrote his own very famous play that is commonly known by the name of Romeo and Juliet. There are many points throughout the plot where connections can be made.
The play properly demonstrates the main ideas of the Lost Generation especially since it was closely influenced by O’Neill’s own life. Eugene O’Neill was born into a family that was heavily involved in theatre, as his father was a traveling actor. Though his family accompanied his father as a unit and seemed stable, his parents had a toxic marriage, his mother a substance addiction, and his older brother alcoholism. By his early twenties O’Neill was a nomad traveling and living in famous port cities such as Liverpool, New York, and Buenos Aires, a severely depressed and unemployed alcoholic. Eventually, after Tuberculosis almost took his life, he got sober and started writing.
But as soon as he got into the navy he was discharged for disobeying orders and having an uncaring personality. It was known that while writing the novel On The Road he taking benzedrine. Later severe alcoholism took control of his life, “which led to cirrhosis of the liver and internal bleeding that took his life on October 21 1969” (“On the Road,” Literary). But the popularity of his books still rose after his death. Near the end of Kerouac’s life he wrote a best selling novel, On The Road.
The irony of this short story was that it was Armand who was of mixed raced and not his wife. He was the one who tainted the baby, he found out after fining a letter from his beloved mother that was written to his father (Chopin). Irony is a surprising interesting twist at the end on a story. I am sure that after he read this letter that he soon figured out why his father was so kind to the slaves and how it was wrong of him to treat his wife the way he did and immediately regretted his choices. Thus, she was no longer there and he could not get her back, he thought she went back to live with her stepmother, and if he goes to look for her or the stepmother went to look for her and the child they would both find that Desiree never went to her original destination.

The same is observed in the case of the Fool in William Shakespeare’s one of the four major tragedies King Lear which was composed during 1605-1606. The Fool has been introduced in the play as a clown or jester but he is not merely a flatterer in the true sense of the term. The present paper will attempt to study the treatment of the Fool in the hand of the playwright who has appropriated the Fool to a highly upgraded position in the play. In his celebrated essay The Fool: His Social and Literary History, (1966) Enid Welsford differentiated terms like “fool” and “buffoon”, “clown” and “jester”. For him, the fool is one “who falls below the
The "theatre of the absurd" -as defined by the Free dictionary- is “A form of drama that emphasizes the absurdity of human existence by employing disjointed, repetitious, and meaningless dialogue, purposeless and confusing situations, and plots that lack realistic or logical development” ("Theatre of the absurd"). Beckett uses his finest dramatic tools and “created in all of his works a mysterious alchemy of force and tragedy that focuses squarely on the central issue of modern existence: the struggle of each individual simply to go on, despite the inescapable awareness of our fundamental meaninglessness” (Broderson, 9), and his influence is evident in the whole play. Since the play is considered as an anger play at this age, one should mention the definition of anger. Anger as Aristotle holds is “an impulse, accompanied by pain, to a conspicuous revenge for a conspicuous slight directed without justification towards what concerns oneself or towards what concerns
