Audiences loved the play’s passionate love story, comedy, fast-paced action, and tragic ending. Above all, they responded powerfully to the larger-than-life character of Cyrano, the genius hero with a ridiculously long nose. After the play, Cyrano de Bergerac, Rostand’s fame began to decrease, and he never received that kind of success with any other production, than Cyrano. Rostand died in 1918, however his famous production, Cyrano de Bergerac, lives on to present day. Although Rostand wrote this play a little more than a century
Telemachus looks and acts the part of his father, astonishing those who presumably knew him as a boy. In book two, Telemakhos’ argument caused confusion. Telemakhos’ believes that his father is lost while; the suitors believe that his father is dead. In lines (49-52), Telemachus states “My distinguished
Then, through letters, Romeo will be informed of this, to meet her as she awakes in the tomb, and they will run away together to Mantua. His plan has many variables that could go wrong, yet he does not consider the precariousness of any of it. He does not know whether the potion will even work in time for Romeo to find her, if at all, or if it will be her groom Paris to find her “dead”, or what would happen if Romeo does not receive the letters. The fact that he never even thinks about all of these major dangers demonstrates his naïvety. As the knowledgeable adult in the situation, what he needed to do was to guide Juliet to safer alternatives, perhaps discussing with Capulet.
The symbolism and allegorical features of the film are both extremely vague and contradictory, making any one interpretation difficult to justify and easy to disprove. When interpreting a work as an allegory, it is always worth paying some attention to the intent of the writers, and the scriptwriters of High Noon intended to write it as an allegory for blacklisting. The easiest way to see this interpretation is to see Sheriff Kane as a victim of blacklisting. His fruitless search for help in fighting Miller symbolizes how alone those brought in front of the House of Un-American Activities were. Their former friends would not help them,

In the play Antigone, you can understand how Creon is a tragic hero from interacting with Antigone and this interaction advances the story through persistence, ignorance, and arrogance. We have all been very closed minded on topics previously, and some of us are closed minded on many things and don’t want any change they aren’t use to or don’t believe in, and this is the same case between Antigone and Creon in the play Antigone. This describes the play, Antigone by sophocle,s in how Creon, the king of Thebes, does not want the brother of Antigone, Polyneices, to be buried because Polyneices was fighting against him in war. This is the opposite for Antigone who wants Polyneices to be buried because she can’t have another brother and her other brother was buried. I believe that the theme of Antigone is determination as both Creon and Antigone are really determined to have their way and not compromise.
This contradicts with the lovesick Romeo and levelheaded Benvolio, who don't doubt true love exists. Mercutio is a hit with the public, but dies relatively early in the play, why would Shakespeare kill such an important character? A diversity of reasons could be found for this, but first you have to know who Mercutio really was. Mercutio first enters the stage together with Romeo and Benvolio, in act 1 scene 4 the talk about the party Romeo wants to go to, the reason for this is because of love. Mercutio here expresses his disapproval towards love in the famous Queen Mab speech.
Soon after the release of his play critics began to notice the allegorical nature of the play. It was released in a time when the paranoia and hysteria was very relevant. It was dealt with by people regularly. Miller comments though that the reality of the situation was that The Red Scare was almost a more serious event in his mind. “Inevitably, it was no sooner known that my new play was about Salem than I had to confront the charge that such an analogy was specious -- that there never were any witches but there certainly are Communists.
For instance, Myrtle Wilson had an affair with Tom Buchanan because he was wealthy. Evidently, Myrtle wanted to have a wealthy husband because as she talks about her wedding, she was very upset, she said, “He borrowed somebody’s best suit to get married in… I lay down and cried to beat the band afternoon”(Fitzgerald 35). Despite the harsh attack Tom had towards her, Myrtle still wanted him over her husband who loved her, but just was not wealthy. Sadly, her wishes would never come true because Tom had no intention of marrying Myrtle. The book The Great Gatsby demonstrates how the American Dream is corrupt.
Friar Lawrence advised Romeo and Juliet to get married despite the ongoing feud between their families. Out of pure selfishness the Friar married them because in his mind if he could bring the two houses together, he would be considered a hero. The Friar not once considered what may happen if his plan were to backfire and do the opposite. “For this alliance may so happy prove to turn your households’ rancor to pure love” (Shakespeare 411). The friar marrying Romeo and Juliet was the first step into the domino affect of their
