Nevertheless, the themes of the story are those that are to be found in most fairy tales-namely, the element of romance, the dichotomy of good and evil, and the happy ending (see works cited 2). Moreover, the structural pattern of the story also follows the principal plot functions present in fairy tales, as set out in Zipes’ model (xiii). All of these themes and patterns come together in a story that is shaped by an appreciation, on the part of the author, of what comprises the fairy tale, in a time when, as a result of the advent of the industrial revolution, the world would have been perceived as becoming smaller and its earthly forces less mysterious. The rapid scientific and technological progress experienced during that period in history probably had a profound
Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and A Midsummer Night’s Dream are two pieces of fiction that have been read for generations. Though their plots differ, each story exemplifies different ideologies of fantasy, and has similar fictional elements. Both stories feature a protagonist’s exit from the mundane world into a world of fantasy, and in both stories these protagonists return to their world changed by their experiences in the alternate realm. The stories of A Midsummer Night’s Dream and Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland develop differently, and should therefore require antagonists with unique qualities. However, this is not the case.
CLASSIFICATION Fairy characters are very important figures in Shakespeare’s comedy. Inhabitants of the play’s fairy world call themselves spirits, ghosts, or shadows, what makes their kind unclear and hard to define. The fairies of A Midsummer Night 's Dream are seen to be what Oberon calls them: " spirits of another sort." However, Shakespeare 's fairies in A Midsummer Night’s Dream match the category of trooping fairies. They seem to be elemental creatures, nature ones.
In fact Mary Shelley was fascinated by the poem of John Milton and found refuge and a vast ocean of thoughts and philosophy within it. Searching about the connection between the two we merely notice that the hero in the novel is derived from the poem’s characterization, or as continuity or a development of a character. When Mary was given a copy of paradise lost by Percy Shelley she made use of it to create her hero, in fact both major characters in her novel seem heroes. You cannot distinguish easily who is the hero: Victor or the monster? It is fascinating how both writers, Milton and Shelley, created heroes with parallel position to their anti-heroes.
In a world of fairy tales, happy endings and justice are always a common sight. Although it ends in good terms, these stories have an ambiguous meaning and are open to different interpretations due to the stories covering contentious aspects such as the portrayal of women. Popular fairy tales all the way from Red Riding Hood to Rapunzel highlight this highly debated topic of how women are portrayed as the weak and vulnerable in order to achieve this “happy ending”. Furthermore, almost all stories require men to abruptly enter the story to save the day and act as the heroic figure. Most fairy tales which were created by brothers Grimm have this common trend of this traditional gender norms.
The most important pieces of Shakespeare’s Midsummer Night Dream is the difference between our real mortal world and a whole different planet where fairies, sprites, deities and other spiritual beings exist. Am going to explore the overlap and difference between these two different realms about what really happens in our world and that of the fairies. For this argumentative essay on Midsummer Night’s Dream, we going to look at Puck and Bottom’s life, although Bottom being human whiles Puck unlike Bottom is the opposite, and they also have a lot of similarities and differences between them but I know for a fact that one cannot exist without the other in the story. They are really similar in fact that what they All talk about has visions, dreaming and old fashion sleep in it. Bottom said in chapter IV, I 203 to 205 and I quote ‘’God’s my life!
This language example correlates to the theme of, “Good and evil coexist.” This theme is evident as villains and figures of evil are often associated with darkness, the protagonists always beat the antagonists, and heroes need to cooperate. Villains and figures of evil are often associated with darkness, many times throughout the course of the book, Kingdom Keepers: Disney After Dark. For example, this is evident in the quote, “The crowd applauded as her hair changed color, from jet black to a sandy blond. Her eyebrows and eyelashes became lighter as well, and few freckles appeared on her cheeks.” (315) As she turns from evil to good, Jez loses all the dark colors within herself. This shows how the blackness of her hair symbolizes her evilness.
"The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde" is a gothic novella written by Robert Louis Stevenson. The whole manuscript concentrates on the concept of human duality and tries to explain that there are both elements of good and evil in every person through the main character personality changes. The choice of using a non-linear plot was done to convey an increasing sense of curiosity and anxiety simultaneously and frequently not to spoil the mystery of the plot. The first chapter narrates "The Story of the Door" , which was told by Mr Enfield to Mr Utterson, and is the first time that the author doesn 't respect the chronological order. This passage portrays the meeting between Mr Enfield and Mr Hyde in a busy quarter of London, where in a small street the gentleman saw Mr Hyde running into a little girl and hurting her carelessly.
He set this as an important part of his stories, hence “evil spirits” as this novel 's theme. Such example added emphasis of his imagination as the narrator consoles that Thomas had drew a circle around him. This action adds imagination to not only the character but the reader. The character in that he believes the witch cannot get at him with a circle draw around him and the reader in that such circle can protect this character. Additionally, Gogol symbolizes prayer when referencing to the theme evil spirits.
The otherworldly witches that kick off the production set a surreal tone to the entire play, opening the universe to the supernatural, speaking in their double language, and saying that famous line “Fair is foul and foul is fair”(Pg. 129; 1.1.9) which sets the course for a major theme that appears throughout the play. In relation to all of this, they mention Macbeth and how they were planning to meet him. Although that does not speak to who Macbeth is directly, it does create a link between himself and the Weird Sisters, which is not a positive one. The next piece of information that is revealed about Macbeth is during the dialogue between Duncan and the bleeding sergeant.
