Most of the time, when a person thinks they can control another person, they are mistaken. A Midsummer’s Night Dream by William Shakespeare is a play that demonstrates the subject of control. Several Characters in the play attempts to make another person do what they want. An example in the story is when a woman named Helena is tries to force a man named Demetrius to love her by chasing him in the woods trying to persuade him. At the end, Shakespeare makes the case that it is not possible to control another person’s actions, because the results are unwanted and tragic.
In the story of the Garden of Eden, Adam and Eve are banished from the garden due to their disobeying of God’s rules. By incorporating a similar language in “The Monkey Garden” one can see there is a reason for Esperanza’s banishment too. In this chapter Esperanza does not want to play with the boys, “[she says], Sally, come on, but she wouldn’t… so [she] just left” (Cisneros 96). She denies the fact that the boys have control over her and Sally, but in her society, this is not a problem. Esperanza is the only one who does not want to kiss or play with the boys; her decision to not play with them is disapproved so she is excluded.

Love makes people do crazy things. In the play Romeo & Juliet written by William Shakespeare, an english poet and play wright, has many deaths between two families in a feud but also has love by two children Romeo and Juliet. In the Ted Talk from Sarah-Jayne Blakemore , a neurologist, she explains the actions on how the prefrontal cortex is still developing throughout the teenage years.

There really is no reason why she blames Tituba, and that is because Tituba could be the first person who comes into Abigail’s mind.
Sedaris and his siblings were laughing because of the grandmother’s farts, but had no control once she farted again. “Strange that being walloped with a heavy spoon made everything seem funnier… My sisters and I would be helpless, doubled over, milk spraying out of our mouths and noses” (6).

Actors were finally casted in 2008 with Brian d’Arcy as Shrek, the caring father whose daughter was disappointed to find out he would be the big scary green ogre. Sutton Foster as Fiona, the unladylike talented actress as the princess trapped in a tower for years. Chester Gregory II as Donkey, the hysterical and energetic comedian as the even more hysterical and energetic sidekick. Christopher Sieber as Lord Faarquad, the six-foot and two-inches dude who plays the three-foot discriminating ruler, and, my personal favorite, John Tartaglia as Pinocchio, the talented real boy puppeteer who is now the puppet who thinks he is a real boy. These characters brought the director’s visions to life.
