He knows that Romeo is not marrying for love but for looks. Romeo is just trying to get over Rosaline, who he proclaimed he was madly in love with (2.6.86). But she goes and marries a different fellow, leaving Romeo with a heartache. Friar Lawrence also knows the two teens are getting married too fast when he says to Romeo, “Wisely and slow. They stumble that run fast” (2.4.101).
Lord Capulet is talking to Paris and asking him if he would consider marring his daughter. Lord Capulet says, “She is the hopeful lady of my earth./ But woo her, gentle Paris, get her heart;/ my will to her consent is but a part/” (1.2.15-17). Lord Capulet is going out of his way to find his daughter, Juliet, the perfect husband. When he tells Paris, “But woo her, gentle Paris, get her heart;/ my will to her consent is but a part/” he is telling Paris to go charm her and make her fall in love with him. It is clear that Lord Capulet explains that his permission is only part of her decision through the phrase,”my will to her consent is but a part/”.
Yes, these kinds of jokes can be mean, but I find them so funny. I think the reason I find these jokes so funny is because society is always telling us to filter what we say and think, these jokes just kind of throw away filter. I am the kind of person that hates being mean to people and I know that I would never say anything to make someone look dumb. I might be a little mean to my best friends, but that’s because they I know I love them. That being said when I find jokes that can be considered a but hurtful I find them hilarious.
“Shakespeare 's plays are all about one great general theme: disorder” (Johnston). No one is better at writing both comedy and tragedy than William Shakespeare, as evidenced by two of his most known works: Much Ado About Nothing, and Lear. Much Ado About Nothing is a comedy in the most traditional sense. “In the literary sense, dramatic comedy is a drama where the characters experience a change for the better and work things out with hope for the future” (Carroll). Comedies are designed to make the audience laugh.
Even in the allusion, Harris calls Gooner a dope, and that changes it to fit under name calling, and vulgarity. On the Low Comedy side of things, there are so many jokes and categories it could fall under. Bodily functions, physical mishaps, victims of circumstances beyond their control, focuses on events, etc. Plus, if it is High Comedy, why doesn’t the humor focus more on the characters? A child could get most of these jokes because it is PHYSICAL COMEDY, and you don’t have to think about the joke much to get it.
Another positive for freedom of speech for comedians is that the jokes made can lighten the mood of the subject. A comedians function in society is to challenge authority, and talk about subjects that may be unacceptable (Hartsell). Comedians are expected to go too far, but when they do, they are disapproved for it. Although, the audiences may only laugh at a joke because of how awkward it is going to be if no one did. “People like to mask their feelings due to not wanting others to really know how they feel—so people may laugh in times of nervousness because they are trying to balance their anxious feelings” (Kaminski).
Dave Barry In society today, people are becoming more and more easily offended. A simple joke is often times blown way out of proportion instead of being laughed off and taken as just that. Dave Barry, a comedic essayist, understands that idea, which is why he uses self-deprecating humor to distract the readers from the fact that he is making fun of them. Along with the use of sarcasm and hyperboles, this form of humor is, at times, relatable and allows him to get certain points across without offending his readers. In one of his Essays, “Decaf Poopacino”, he is making fun of the fact that Americans order the craziest drinks when at coffee shops.
At the end of the play Jack Worthing’s lineage becomes revealed, and it turns out he was the baby in the handbag Miss Prism lost so long ago. After further revelation it comes to light that Algernon and Jack are brothers, and Jack is actually named Ernest after all. Silly as it may seem this ending highlights Wilde’s criticism of Victorian triviality. Like magic in Lady Bracknell's eye’s Jack is now the perfect suitor for Gwindelon contradictory to what she thought before. Even more implausible is the fact that Jack can so easily forgive the woman who consistently questioned and belittled him.
At the beginning of the play, there are two rival families and two lovers, Romeo and Juliet: “Two households, both alike in dignity, In fair Verona, where we lay our scene, From ancient grudge break to new mutiny, Where civil blood makes civil hands unclean, From forth the fatal loins of these two foes, A pair of star-crossed lovers take their life” (1.1.1-6) Romeo and Juliet like each other and decide to get married, but her father wants her to have an arranged marriage: “If that thy bent of love be honorable, Thy purpose marriage, send me word tomorrow, By one that I’ll procure to come to thee” (2.2.151-153). At the end of the play, Romeo and Juliet kill themselves and the rival families are no longer enemies: “Came to this vault to die and lie with Juliet. Where be these enemies? Capulet, Montague, See what a scourge is laid upon your hate, That heaven finds means to kill your joys with love!” (5.3.303-306). The theme of A Midsummer Night’s Dream is love should not be sought, it should be found.
