Horatio and Hamlet share a relationship of respect, just as a father and son would. Horatio 's calm and intelligent demeanor reflects King Hamlet, gaining him Hamlet 's admiration. Hamlet states that a true friend is not "a pipe for Fortune 's finger,/To sound what stop she please" (Shakespeare 3.2.70-71). Hamlet wishes he could be as unaffected and relaxed as Horatio is when stressed. By giving a speech entirely dedicated to Horatio, Hamlet displays his appreciation for his friend 's qualities.
Their relationship is really weird because nobody really understands why George takes care of Lennie, but for him Lennie is like a responsibility and also means companion. This is reflected when George said this to Lennie: “No, Lennie, I ain’t mad. I never been mad, and I aint now. That’s a thing I want you to know.” Lennie loves George, he is like a role model for him and he admires him. In the novel that is demonstrated when Lennie says to George: “But I would eat none, I’d leave it all for you George.” With those words Lennie demonstrates the admiration and loyalty he has for his best friend.
The Renaissance was a period of beautiful, enlightening artistic and scientific excavation. In the Renaissance, Marlowe introduced comic relief. He did that through his presentation of crude scenes in Dr. Faustus. The comic relief then came in the form of an interlude between two tragic sections. Of all the readings covered in class, this intersection of comedy and tragedy was striking, due to its paradoxical nature.
The audience knew the plan for Beatrice and Benedick, but their own confidence in their wit betrayed them. Also, their witty comments to each other make for highly entertaining moments. Claudio allows other people to fool him into believing untrue things, which leads to dramatic altercations with numerous characters. Dogberry’s unwittiness leads to a coincidence that saves the whole play and creates an ironic feeling that the least intelligent character discovered the evil plot. “The wit of Shakespeare’s play informs the words spoken by the characters, places the characters themselves as truly witty and intelligent, inappropriately facetious, or ingeniously witless, suggests the lines of action these characters will
Throughout the play, prestige, power, and public opinion are changed by whether a character meets or fails to meet the gender expectations and norms. Fortinbras provides a strong example of this phenomenon: even though his actions are against the throne of Denmark at the outset of the play, laying aside his conflict and agreeing to fight the Poles improves his public standing heavily. Fortinbras’s actions exemplify significant bravery, discipline, and honor: all key traits for one to be “masculine”. Hamlet’s declaration: “Rightly to be great is not to stir without great argument, but greatly to find quarrel in a straw when honour's at the stake.” (4.4.54-57) not only proves the traits which are valued, but also suggests that Fortinbras is “great”- because he embodies these traits. Conversely, Hamlet loses his standing, and his reputation, due to his lack of masculinity.
He drives the plot of the story, a role done by the protagonist, when he causes drama between the Athenian lovers because of his mistake. He also adds comedy to Titania’s relationship with Bottom by making him look like an ass, and he fixes all of the happenings by undoing the love spell on Lysander and amending the play for the audience. With all of Puck’s input into the plot of the play, it is undeniable that he is the protagonist of A Midsummer Night’s
The comedy wanders around the difficulties and ironies of love as it provides a very accurate description of a relatively common situation that many people experience. Shakespeare excelled in delivering a piece that is comedic, relatable and unpredictable in its essence. As I progress through this essay, I will analyze one of its’ major themes, which is the controversy of love and how it involves some of the characters in the story. Love is often called the most beautiful sentiment a human can ever feel, yet, very often it can cause so much pain and despair, causing it to be very controversial and
In William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, there are an ample exhibit of puissance dynamics between the characters occurring throughout the play. The majority of this ascendancy is customarily kept within men of high division, with low reputation females receiving the least amount of potency; this can be discerned through the the interactions of characters in the play. Nonetheless, Shakespeare alters this power dynamic through the utilization of puns. These puns can have an concealed connotation that some characters don’t recognize, which can give the utilizer a sense of potency over others. Over the course of the play, certain characters maintain high power, this sense of power is often perceived through characters’ actions and conversations.
Othello was one of Shakespeare’s most famous play that during the 17th century was repeatedly play due to the diversity of race and controversial emotions. Moreover, is great example of how Shakespeare was able to impersonate the strength and weakness of humans. Othello is nonetheless an excellent illustration of emotions build his character throughout the story. As the story begins we see Othello is a well respected diplomatic who seems strong and modest. During act III, Iago’s poisonous feelings start to manipulate Othello actions, but is not until act IV that it completely takes over him and in epilogue V is when Othello loses all his senses of reasoning that makes him do an outrageous deed at the end of Othello.
First of all, Shakespeare uses verbal irony so Mark Antony can persuade his audience. The use of verbal irony lets us know that Mark Antony is trying to insult Brutus while seeming to praise him. Each time Antony says “Brutus is an honourable man” we begin to wonder if he really is an honourable man. He is being a little sarcastic each time he addresses Brutus. Before Antony spoke he was given a list of rules from Brutus that he had to follow.
However, he chooses to go back for Jim and save him. He wakes Jim up and says, “Git up and hump yourself, Jim! There ain 't a minute to lose. They 're after us!"(82). When Huck says they’re after us it shows that Huck associates himself with Jim, The men are really only after Jim, but Huck sees themselves as friends, and says us, when he could 've easily said you.
Chiwetel Ejiofor performs Hamlet from Hamlet with a vigorous tone yet perfect speed, he knows how to give a professional act. Most of the actors cited a piece of text from Shakespeare and gave their reason on how it is important to their life and others. A counterclaim that is encountered with this subject may be describing how Shakespeare 's work is outdated and how the stories were just stories. These points are not important to the argument because they are not valid against the claims of how Shakespeare can give the present day a view of the past, and how he still affects many people today. In conclusion, I believe that reading Shakespeare today should still be allowed in education.
Huck and Jim develop overtime. They develop many traits- their friendship, bravery, and their strong sense of morals.

It is important to study and understand English history in order to fully grasp Shaespeare’s plays for many reasons. The English monarchs were perfect people for Shakespeare to mirror within his writing. Shakespeare’s best work is surrounded by family drama and dilemma.
