  • 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. Although it is not mentioned at first, Viola has twin brother who she presumes went don with the ship. Now with no family alive, Viola decides she must support herself.

  • 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".

    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 ...

Finally in 1599, he became part owner in the most prestigious public playhouse in London, the Globe. The Works. Shakespeare's early works, to mid-1594, can be divided into four groups: 1. The Classical plays: his first works which were heavily influenced by the classical examples he had learned as a student. Plautus served as the model for The Comedy of Errors, Seneca for Titus Andronicus. Both crude works when compared with Shakespeare's later work, but better than most plays being performed on the English stage at the time. 2.

  • Foolery And Revenge - 1,012 words
    In most of the plays written by William Shakespeare there is always some act of revenge or foolery. Whether it be in the gentlest of terms or set out to hurt someone intentionally, it is almost always present. Trickery can be seen in many ways. It can be simply calling some one names, or actually setting up a particular person despite the fact he/she has done nothing wrong. The two plays I found the strongest connections with are Twelfth Night and Henry IV(part one). These two plays, while totally different, are much alike in the respect that they both have an underlying story about someone getting tricked. The whole basis of the play Twelfth Night is disguises, and how well a person can suc ...

  • The Globe Theater - 1,007 words
    The origins of the first Globe have many interesting details that make up its history. London developed a demand for entertainment and theaters. Europeans took the chance and began to build them. In 1576 the first successful theater was in operation in London. This building was simply called "The Theater," which was owned by James Burbage and John Brayne. Twenty years later in 1596 the lease was about to expire. Their landlord was giving them an unfair lease that would make them go bankrupt. A few years later in 1598 Lord Chamberlain's Men, a theater troupe, decided to build themselves a playhouse of their own. They were also short on cash so they thought it would be most cost effective to u ...

Act II Scene 3. TOBY. A false conclusion; I hate it as an unfilled can. To be up after midnight, and to go to bed then, is early; so that to go to bed after midnight is to go to bed betimes. Does not our lives consist of the four elements? ANDREW. Faith so they say; but I think it rather consists of eating and drinking. TOBY. Thourt a scholar! Let us therefore eat and drink.

    The voice of the dolphin in the air is like that of the human in that they can pronounce vowels and combinations of vowels, but have difficulties with the consonants (Aristotle internet). The communication between dolphins can only be described scientifically and historically. The true nature of how dolphins communicate with one another and possibly with other species is something only known to the dolphin. It is an evolving, complex mystery we are only now starting to grasp the significance of. Eventually it may be possible for humans to speak with other species. I have come to this conclusion after careful consideration of evidence gained through my research experiments with dolphins (John ...
