Furthermore, since only Gatsby, Nick and Daisy attend, Gatsby and Daisy are able to be honest with each other and do not have to worry about keeping up with appearances. Daisy is able to reconnect with Gatsby because they are separated from the rest of the world, and this leads her to see that she can still have a life with gatsby. This party allows Gatsby to get over his anxiety and self doubt by removing the background noise of other parties and putting him alone with her so that he is in control and able to show himself to her without fear. The party thus relaxes each of them because the party’s informal, private setting allows them to get over spending 5 years apart.
Benvolio not only dislikes himself getting into fights, but he also dislikes others getting into fights. Only truly peaceful people do not want any fighting whatsoever. Benvolio happens to be a truly peaceful man. Later on during the party, Tybalt figures out that a Montague is in the building, so he says “Now seeming sweet, convert to bitter gall”(I.v.101). This statement
Alazon is described as the character who “doesn’t know that he doesn't know”(page 257). What happens, is that eiron spends most the time verbally ridiculing, humiliating, undercutting and generally getting the best of the alazon, who doesn’t get it. According to Foster, irony works because the audience picks up on clues and understands things that characters of the play aren’t able to. This example of irony by Foster, closely relates to numerous scenes in the play Macbeth. In the play macbeth there is irony practically everywhere, though there are a couple scenes that stand out for their use of this skillful technique.
He has much self-doubt about it which prevents him from wanting to express his love for Roxane. He believes his nose prevents him from even being loved by an ugly woman.

Play Analysis – Essay 1 “Much Ado About Nothing “ Submitted by Noor Ul Ain Shaikh (BSMS 2A) What seems to be a comedy play for an audience who enjoys a theatre with good humor and romance, “Much Ado About Nothing” contains much more than just entertainment. If we dig in deep, William Shakespeare’s play has much more than a tragic story with happy ending; even that is debatable. The theme of this play revolves around deception, plotting against your own, personal gains and rejection. The audience may understand the concept of love and romance flowing within the characters because it was to portrayed that way but the critics would argue the fact that some of the characters like Beatrice and Benedick were made to fall in love with each other through deception. As simple as the characters were, the situations arousing in the play became more complexed as scenes passed by.
As aforementioned a tragic hero was defined as a character who falls from their lofty position due to their folly or tragic flaw. Creon was definitely the soul main character that died from his tragic flaw. Although other characters were involved they did not see the error of their ways. His actions caused this story to be riveting and intriguing causing the audience to understand more morals such as not possessing arrogance or be willing to understand. Yet another question remains was this Creon’s fate or his free
With Phillips’ quick fire dialogue and extreme skill of storytelling, to the untrained viewer this play could be reduced to so much less than it is worth. The spectacle of the lighting design as well as one unforgettable Robert LaPage-esque moment with a coffee cup on a sideways table seem to be a little kitschy, at times. When these moments occurred, the audience would erupt with “oohs”, “ahhs” and “how did he do that?”’s. Although, theoretically, these spectacles made sense, it did not appear to add anything meaningful to the production. Phillips is one of those rare performers who would be pleasant to watch simply reading a telephone book, so it seems as if the themes and ideas would have carried just as well without this visual trickery.
While I am not saying that everyone supports the vastly inappropriate jokes made on the show, a large portion of society love it. What makes it okay for this show to make fun of these very serious subjects? Antonia Peacocke, author of “Family Guy and Freud: Jokes and their Relation to the Unconscious”, discusses how Family Guy changed her viewpoint over these seemingly obscene jokes. Although I find Peacocke has some very interesting points in her article, I do not agree with her entirely. Making jokes about certain subjects is okay to do before it crosses a certain line.
The tragedy of Othello written by William Shakespeare presents the main character Othello as a respectable, honorable, and dignified man. However, because of his insecurities and good nature he is easily taken advantage of and manipulated by his alleged friends. Shakespeare is known for his exceptional ability to compose plays full of deceit, revenge, and jealousy. Jealousy is an underlying theme throughout the tragedy and has been represented by many of the main characters, such as Iago, Roderigo, and Othello. The topic of jealousy will ultimately lead to the demise of many characters throughout the tragedy.
“Life is a mixing of all kind of things: comedy and tragedy going together” (Alejandro Jodorowsky). Comedy and tragedy have been two popular forms of entertainment for people throughout the ages. From Greek performances to contemporary plays, the art of theatre is well and thriving. While the styles of playwrights and the way theatre is experienced changes through time, the messages these plays gaves have more or less stayed the same. Drama can, for the most part, be classified as either tragedy or comedy.
