  • Twelfth Night - 329 words
    In Shakespeares plays, seeing is not always believing, and in his play Twelfth Night, the rule is no different. One of the main characters in the play is Viola, who spends most of her time dressing as the other sex. It is not necessarily Viola who has a great purpose to the play, however the gentleman that she is playing is. We first meet Viola just after she has been rescued by sailors from a sinking ship.

  • Analysis Of Shakespeares Twelfth Night - 786 words
    William Shakespeare, arguably the most important writer in all of English literature, is certainly the most influential playwright of the English Renaissance. Born in 1564 in Stratford-upon-Avon in rural northern England, he was the son of a middle-class glovemaker. Competing against such illustrious company as Christopher Marlowe and Ben Johnson, Shakespeare quickly became one of the most popular playwrights in the city of London and a favorite of the monarch, the powerful and long-lived Queen Elizabeth I. Shakespeare wrote thirty-eight plays in the course of his twenty-five-year career; a few of them apparently in collaboration with other people, but most of them solo. Twelfth Night was wr ...

  • Loyalty In Twelfth Night - 1,021 words
    A common theme in many of Shakespeare's plays is the idea of loyalty. Good or evil, right or wrong, the central character in the play always has at least one person whom no matter what the circumstances never leaves their side or never denies the person what they want even if it is contrary to what they want or believe. The play Twelfth Night portrays a very good example of loyalty and sacrifice. Viola, or Cesario as she is known through most of the play, has found herself in an interesting predicament. A rather interesting 'love triangle' is woven in the play and she finds herself in the middle of it as both a man and a woman. The interesting part is that she puts her own feelings aside in ...

    Maria is the witty and cunning maid to Lady Olivia. She schemes and is very self assertive, much like the commedia dellArte character Columbina. This character thinks for herself, is often the ladys maid, one of the smartest characters in the play, and has a tendency to scheme when provoked. These characteristics describe Maria completely.

  • The Common Elements Of Twelfth Night And Shakespeare In Love - 655 words
    The Common Elements of "Twelfth Night" and "Shakespeare in Love" William Shakespeare's Twelfth Night and John Madden's Shakespeare in Love are two romantic comedies that both convey a tragedy. The reader is able to link both Twelfth Night and Shakespeare in Love with a common plot, theme, and character discussion. The plot of both works produces a situational comedy. The comedy is expressed through the coincidence of love and unwelcome love. The main actresses in both Shakespeare in Love and Twelfth Night are required to dress themselves as males. Both works are climatic: their themes have many different directions and their resolutions - despite being difficult to ascertain beforehand - con ...

  • Twelfth Night - 998 words
    Twelfth Night is a comedy of light and shade. Its characters are not unreservedly happy and the events are not unreservedly humorous. Discuss. As a comedy, Twelfth Night is obviously intending to not only entertain its audience but also point out problems in society. It is imperative to entire merit of the play not to be realistic but to allow for empathy. Therefor to have a comedy of complete lightheartedness there would be no balance and hence no avenue for audience interaction. Without light we would have no darkness and for this reason Shakespeare has had to incorporate tragedy in order for the comedy to have its desired effect. The two in juxtaposition accentuate each other. The charact ...

  • Twelfth Night Social Problems - 897 words
    As a comedy, Shakespeares Twelfth Night, is not only meant to entertain its audience but also bring attention to problems in society. One must let go of several realistic concepts before they can truly understand Shakespeares intentions. The audience must suspend their logic to believe that so many coincidental situations could occur. They are taken far away to a romantic land, where no penalties or consequences exist for practical jokes and constant drunkenness. It is this incongruity compared with our, everyday mundane lives that provides for the humor in this play. Humor is used to point out social concerns, such as balance in ones life, and the not to judge based solely on appearance; ho ...

  • Twelfth Night - Analysis Of Fools - 1,296 words
    A fool can be defined in many meanings according to the Oxford English Dictionary On Historical Principles. The word could mean "a silly person", or "one who professionally counterfeits folly for the entertainment of others, a jester, clown" or "one who has little or no reason or intellect" or "one who is made to appear to be a fool" (word originated from North Frisian). In english literature, the two main ways which the fool could enter imaginative literature is that "He could provide a topic, a theme for mediation, or he could turn into a stock character on the stage, a stylized comic figure". In William Shakespeare's comedy, Twelfth Night, Feste the clown is not the only fool who is subje ...

  • Twelfth Night - Character Study :malvolio - 1,162 words
    ter> Character study: Malovlio: Did he deserve the punishment that he received? The character Malvolio (meaning literally I mean ill will) is immediately affected by the implications of his name. His personage is implied directly to be one of negative and somewhat disagreeable nature, which is continued and supported throughout the play, leading to his downfall and mockery which both initially seem to be thoroughly deserved, due to his numerous defects of personality. The first evidence of Malvolios undesirable disposition comes with his own first appearance in the play during which he makes a point of insulting the wit and intelligence of Feste I marvel your ladyship takes delight in such ...

  • Twelfth Night - Various Plots And How They Are Inter Linked - 540 words
    If the play was based upon one single plot, Twelfth Night would not have been as it is. It is the linking of the various plots that really completes the whole story and brings out the nature of the characters and the connection between them. The play starts with a major plot, Orsino wooing Olivia. Orsino has been asking Olivia to accept his love, but Olivia refuses it. To woo Olivia, Orsino sends messengers to speak on behalf of him. This is the reason why Viola is dragged in the middle of this plot. After being shipwrecked, Viola thinks that her twin brother Sebastian is dead. So in order to survive, she goes to work for the Duke. Orsino favors Viola (who is disguised as a male; Cesario) an ...

  • Counterpoint Within Shakespeare's Twelfth Night - 964 words
    Shakespeare uses counterpoint throughout Twelfth Night to create an interesting story that captures the reader's attention. Counterpoint is a technique that incorporates multiple scenes happening simultaneously. These several scenes come together at the end of the work to produce a harmonious finish to an action-packed and appealing plot. In Twelfth Night these concurrent proceedings generate many misconceptions which provide the comical, somewhat ironic part of the play. The "love triangle" effect created by all the mistaken identities accounts for the main comic element in the play. It holds the audience's attention while strengthening the plot at the same time. In the end the "love triang ...

I had always known when I was young that Christopher was sick in some way. His right hand was malformed and he had to receive a variety of injections each day from his mother.

  • Salem Witch Trials - 1,393 words
    Many of the American colonists brought with them from Europe a belief in witches and the devil. During the seventeenth century, people were executed for being witches and follower of Satan. Most of these executions were performed in Salem, Massachusetts in 1692. Mostly all of the accused were women, which makes some modern historians believe that the charges of witchcraft were a way of controlling the women who threatened the power of the men. During the witchcraft trials, hundreds of arrests were made, and some were even put to death on Gallows Hill (Karlsen 145). In 1698, the villagers of Salem won the right to establish their own Church. They chose the Reverend Samuel Parris as their mini ...

  • Vouchers And Education - 1,470 words
    l Gore vs. George W. Bush On School Funding Presidential candidates Al Gore and George W. Bush are whetting their stances on what is quickly becoming a central issue in the upcoming presidential election - education reform. Both perceive the issue as an opportunity to draw votes from the other party's followers, especially Bush, who stands to gain ground on minority groups, a segment of the population he is particularly weak with. (Business Week; April 10, 2000) The heat of the debate will center on school financing, who gets what, and how much. Bush, an advocate of school "choice," will argue the failings of a money-flooded system riddled with mediocre standards. The Texas governor's polici ...

  • Medieval Literature And Poetry Illuminated Manuscripts - 963 words
    The Middle Ages was a period of about one thousand years, between the collapse of the Roman Empire during the fifth century AD and the revival of classical art and learning known as the Renaissance around the fifteenth century. During this dark and chaotic period small groups of devout Christians could live with security and pursue a religious life. These people were doing something that almost no one else could do at the time- reading and writing. They were making something that almost no one else could make or have any use for- books. The first of these books was the Bible, and as time passed, more forms of literature such as poetry and illuminated manuscripts were created. Christianity, l ...

  • Gay Definition Essay - 451 words
    The word gay originated from the Old High German word gahi, which means rapid and impetuous. In the twelfth century, the word gahi gave rise to the Middle French word gai, meaning merry and happily excited. The English word gay was borrowed from the Middle French word gai in the fourteenth century. The word gay greatly reflects the cultural changes in English speaking countries. In English, the word was used to indicate excessive heterosexual activity. However, today, the word gay is often applied to male homosexuals. Before the 1900s, gay had been used as both positive and negative terms. Many authors used gay to indicate cheerfulness. Edward was the handsomest, the gayest, and the bravest ...

  • David Sedaris Otherness - 1,170 words
    One may view David Sedaris, without the knowledge of his background, as abnormal or even weird. However, throughout the two stories, A Plague of Tics, and Ashes, he breaks down the wall of otherness and allows an audience to take a look at his own personal life. Sedaris incorporates all sorts of humor to somewhat ease the tension of revealing his life and the awkwardness the audience may feel while reading his stories. The autobiographical point of view allows the audience to get a real sense of self-representation and truth, although at times the stories Sedaris share seem peculiar to the outsiders. Using an artistic and humorous tactic, David Sedaris is able to deconstruct his own othernes ...
