Taming of the Shrew There’s been a lot of questions and discussions about if Shakespeare was being a little bit too cruel or bias in the way he represented women in the play, Taming of the Shrew. There’s a lot of different opinions and in my personal one I think he is non-misogynistic. It was a just a comedy not an insult to woman. People are just being too sensitive about it, and just looking more to it than there actually is. How can we compare or judge something that was written in before the 1600s.
I am explaining this through showing that men were not expected to love their wives. The feminist lens provide modern society with the most compelling view of literature because men don’t trust women, men think women are cheaters and whores, and women don 't have a voice. First and foremost, men don’t trust women. Illustrates how the feminist perspective is the best lens to new modern literature in his play “Othello”, when shakespeare articulates through brabantio in Act 1, as he speaks to duke that “She has been fooled, stolen from me, and corrupted by spells and medicines bought from cheating salesmen. She is not mentally impaired, blind or
And tonight, I’ve made up my mind. One of us will fly to Mars!” (p. 1). To explain this quote, Fiorello basically proves Bramante wrong, when Bramante is talking of how there is no earthly way that he is able to go to space, and then he talks of how he has saved up enough money already, and it’s guaranteed that one of his family is going to Mars. “Maria looked at her husband. “What have you done?” she said.
For instance, when Romeo and Juliet talked in Capulet’s orchard for the first time, Juliet left all the marriage plans to Romeo. She actually gave Romeo, a man, complete freedom to control her marriage. On the other hand, Capulet said that Juliet “will be ruled” when organizing her betrothal to Paris. Capulet’s message was that men’s decisions were final, as if women were obligated to obey. Meanwhile, when Juliet learned about her engagement to Paris and her nurse’s opinion on the marriage, the first thing she did was go “to the Friar to know his remedy” (III.v.241).
It would tell everyone what they needed to know, but not in such a harsh way that they felt attacked or were overly dismayed. As a comic playwright, the idea of blind ignorance provided material for Moliere to work with. “The material for Tartuffe was artistically and dramatically excellent, popularly appealing, and psychologically fascinating, so there is small wonder that Moliere threw himself into the project of bringing it to the stage” (kctcs.edu). It was, however, difficult for Tartuffe to be performed due to its controversial subject matter. King Louis XIV had to intervene in order for the play to make it to the public
1. Who is the actual director of the play in Bullets Over Broadway? The initial playwriter is David Shane, who has already wrote two other plays wich were failures. This new play is supposed to be a great success, because of his decision to not let anyone interfere in his script. Obviously it does not work out. Firstly the script is being changed by the aging diva Helen Sinclair, who wants her role to have more influence, character and screentime and slowly manipulates Shane by seduction.
When Macbeth heard the news of him possibly becoming King, he first tells his wife (I,v,1-13). Typical to any relationship between two very close beings, when one receives good news the first person they tell is the one closest to them. A good symbol that states the closeness between the couple. Macbeth’s love for Lady Macbeth in the beginning of the play is pure, undisturbed. Lady Macbeth is the most important person to Macbeth.
Throughout the play Macbeth, William Shakespeare uses diction to convey a change in not only his characters, but their environments and other character’s points of view. The varying uses of honor allow Shakespeare to introduce motifs about Macbeth’s changing character throughout the play. At the start of the play, Macbeth is an innocent thane, yet by the end, he is a merciless king who becomes obsessed with his possible power. The honor represents his valiancy at first even though by the end, honor becomes worthless because Macbeth has abused it and has lost any trust from his people. At the onset of the play, Macbeth enjoys the honor of being a thane and understands that it is a unique position because there are a limited amount of them.
These changes in character between Tony and Romeo altered the themes from societal expectations, fate over free will, and complicated families to societal expectations in the 1950’s, inevitability of fate, and gang rivalry due to racism. First of all, Shakespeare depicted Romeo as a bit of a lover, whereas Tony was more of a loner. This change affected a theme of West Side Story because societal expectations vary based on time period, which allowed for Tony to act differently than Romeo. Shakespeare set Romeo and Juliet in the 1300’s or the Elizabethan era, during this time period it was typical of young men to find women, which explains Romeo’s romantic behavior. This conversation in the play, between Friar Laurence and Romeo shows how easily Romeo switched his love interests: FRIAR: God pardon sin, wast thou with Rosaline?

Other people argue that Benvolio is to blame because he instructed Romeo to go to the Capulets’ party, but this argument is weak because Romeo didn’t have to agree to go. When Benvolio asks Romeo to go to the party, he agrees to go, “‘I’ll go along.’” (1.2.103) Understanding who holds the majority of the blame for the deaths in Romeo and Juliet helps people understand the play because it gives the deaths and overall plot more sense in why everything happened the way it did. Human nature has its flaws, and the blame for the deaths in this play exaggerates how humans behave
JFK even promised to land on the moon before the 1970’s so we could’ve faked the landings to prevent embarrassment. Also, the “moon rocks” that astronauts bring to earth could just as well be pieces of meteorites. Seriously, moon rocks look similar to meteorites, but how do ordinary citizens know what a moon rock looks like? We 've never been to the moon! The rocks could have been pieces of meteorites!
