We can note that the setting and themes of the former play are different from those of the later play (Eby 36). Nonetheless, both scenarios of the plays have captured the trends of human life, exemplifying some rather contemporary issues that affect humanity in the world today. Hemingway's Soldier's Home has characters observed to act by what is taking place, and the daily living styles of the people. In the 1977 Movie Soldier's Home we such similarities in the manner in which the play has been exemplified, illustrating the straight features that come into play when the play is beginning, at the middle, and even towards its ending (Hischak
Composers have the ability to influence how we the audience views and responds to characters and issues. Through viewing and analysing ‘The Shoe Horn Sonata’ by John Misto and ‘Saving Private Ryan’ directed by Steven Spielberg, it is obvious that composers have the ability to impact and influence our views on characters and issues that occur. Shoe Horn Sonata and Saving Private Ryan were set in the same context of World War 2. John Misto’s Shoe Horn Sonata takes place during the war against Japan, the play focus on the lives of two women Bridie and Sheila who have been captured by the Japanese to become (POW) prisoners of war. John Misto’s play was based on real accounts from POWs, the play was to commemorate the female POWS who story was unheard of and to give an insight to the audience into what the POWs had to endure while under the japanese rule.
However, in the letter, it does not identify who she’s talking to, but it can be guessed that it must’ve been a relative. Mainly because many of the letters sent from people during the war were usually sent to relatives. Next, in terms of content, the people involved were the soldiers that she treated, she stated the many diseases they encountered. Moreover, Madamesoille miss is in France because nurses were needed on the site of the war. Also, looking at this document now, it’s a significant representation of the role of women on the site of the war.
In the assessment of William P. Dawson’s work, Dawson looks at the puns on “woe” and “woo” in Romeo and Juliet. He looks at different times they are used as puns throughout the play. He concludes the many possible meanings of the two words such as linking love and death, die, seduction, suffering, courtship and grief. Dawson pulls many examples of the different meanings of the words out of the play. He is then able to compare how the two are used during the play.
My Papa’s Waltz: by Theodore Roethke The poetic piece of “My Papa’s Waltz” written by Theodore Roethke is a traumatic tale that approaches a psychoanalytic approach to a young boy’s relationship towards his Father. Although the poem itself is only sixteen lines, it is one of Roethke’s most moving and most frequently anthologized or recognized poems . The story has been read as a very warm memory, but easily shifts itself into a perplexed darker narrative that deals with assumptions like abuse. In this analytical essay, I will discuss the past experiences of Theodore Roethke that influenced “My Papa’s Waltz”, emphasizing the psychoanalytical approaches that are defined in this emotional poem. The story is told
‘Inequality promises that it's here to stay. Always trust the injustice 'cause it's not going away.’ – Lilly Allen (Allen, 2013) Hello, I’m Thomas Brooks and this is Literature Links, todays focus is Tina Fey’s autobiography Bossypants and its representation of women and sexism in society. Bossypants follows Fey as she reminisces about her childhood and the experiences that led to her “15 minutes” in Hollywood. Fey’s experiences within the film and television industry provide the primary narrative as she subtly attempts to position readers to understand the deep sexism in “the Business.” To appreciate how the author has positioned her audience to accept her invited reading, the following must be examined; how ideas, values and attitudes are
In William Shakespeare's play The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet, the use of multiple literary devices makes the play interesting. Dramatic irony, which is when the audience knows more than the characters, occurs numerous times throughout the play and grabs the attention of the audience. Soliloquies, which are lengthy speeches by a character to project their thoughts and emotions to the audience, this allows the audience to be more attentive. Allusions are references by characters to well-known places, events from myths or other literature that cause the audience to be absorbed into the play. After reading this marvelous play, it is obvious that Shakespeare uses dramatic irony, allusions, and soliloquies all written in blank verse to grasp the undivided attention of the audience.
Though Nehls and Baird experienced war in different eras, the concept of friendship appeared to be timeless throughout their interviews. Even so, an article written by Janet Butler, a member of the Australian Historical Association, titled ‘Friendships in war was not just confined to bonds between men’ provided more historical context to the significance of friendships in war. The article focuses on Australian nurses who participated in World War I, and extracts historical information about friendships from the diaries of army nurse Kit McNaughton. I used the article on the World War I Australian nurses to shape the outline of the audio documentary for Nehls and Baird. The article serves as a guide for the three main points discussed by the interviewees in the documentary: the stability that friendships provided in war, the volatile nature of friendships due to military transitions, and the persevering sense
In most of the author’s works they explore these challenges faced by their characters to help relate to the general public. Kate Chopin, in “Story of an Hour,” discuss feminist concepts in a pre-suffrage American. In the short story “Winter Dreams,” by F. Scott Fitzgerald explores the raw truth of the American Dream in the post-World War I era. Raymond Carver’s short story “Cathedral” evaluates how society can make people numb and unware of even the most amazing
Florence Kelley uses pathos continuously throughout her speech. By choosing to include such a strong sense of pathos, she was able to promote an effective argument that was appropriate for her intended audience; the National American Woman Suffrage Association. The use of pathos, as seen in lines 18-19, “Tonight while we sleep, several thousand little girls will be working in textile mills, all the night through” constructs a sense of guilt, she
The use of monologues is the primary device employed for this purpose, allowing the audience an insight into the struggles of the mothers anguish experience in the war, “Worried and waited. Waited and agitated.” Evident in the monologues are other techniques, one of which is the multimedia backdrops which added extra characters and exploration of a variety of points of views to the story. For example, using a multimedia background additionally added to the engagement of the audience in the themes and messages of war’s effect on families. The use of a spotlight on stage, cleverly hidden in the place of a coat hanger, lit up the actors facial expressions and recreated for the audience the atmosphere of war through transporting the audience to a specific time and place. The production incorporated the use of sound such as bagpipes, door knocks, boat horns, clapping from crowd, beagles and war sounds to allow the audience to become engaged in the more realistic sounds of wartime.
