The puppet play is written in an understandable language, where as Shakespearean plays are difficult to understand. The cultural customs in Chikamatsu’s tragedy are more relatable than with Shakespeare’s tragedy. Hearing the phrase from Romeo and Juliet, “to bite ones thumb toward someone” has little to no meaning to many readers today. To someone who has been well educated with the culture during of Shakespeare’s day would know this is an offensive act. When Ohatsu and Tokubei send their prayers to Buddha or sneak off to a symbolic bridge, one would understand the culture and religious reference being mentioned.
On the oppose side of the marital spectrum, Zeena regularly professes her hypochondria to her husband. However, in response to the sledding accident, she “seemed to be raised right up just when the call came to her” (Wharton 131). This ironic “miracle” proves Zeena’s addiction to martyrdom, emotionally dependent on first her illnesses, then to her vocational role. Although professedly unhappy, she relies on her marriage for a sense of purpose. In an examination of the constancies, it seems as though both wife and husband, woman and man, are reliant upon both one another and their marriage to function
As soon as they meet and get married they are instantly stuck together for life even if they are not married. According to Hester the marriage was never a true marriage out of love, but just an attempt at a better life, but despite this fact Chillingworth still loved and cared for Hester as if some kind of love would come back to him in return. This odd couple will forever be tied together because of the muddy past they had that was never resolved for Chillingworth until he finds out with whom Hester committed adultery with.
Harwood then says ‘They suffer’, emphasised by the short syntax. This sentence is ambiguous as to who’s suffering; the people or the composers themselves as Kröte is adding his own elements or 'variations' to the music. Kröte’s intentions are stressed with the alliteration of ‘malice’ and ‘more’, as he delights in reversing the power in society by playing his music badly and having no one notice. He even plays the repeats of the pieces through, just to add to the length of his performance, even though in the fifth stanza, the narrator tells us that 'he was expected to perform something short and sweet'. The use of the word ‘expected’ is important, as it shows how Kröte, in not doing what was expected of him, is in defiance of society.
The marriage between Othello and Desdemona in Othello was, in fact, an abusive one. It is apparent that Othello and Desdemona love each other from the very beginning. They love each other enough to get married, despite all the obstacles they know they will have to encounter, including racism and Brabantio’s disapproval. Desdemona’s love for Othello becomes apparent when she states, “I am hitherto your daughter: but here's my husband, and so much duty as my mother show'd to you, preferring you before her father, so much I challenge that I may profess due to the Moor, my lord” to her father, essentially telling him that her loyalty lies with Othello, and not with him (I.iii.180-189). It becomes clear that Othello loves Desdemona after he arrives in Cyprus, and says “As hell's from heaven!
It was about an old couple who nearly got killed by a teenager. They were going to be fine, but the husband was depressed because he could not see his wife through eyeholes in his cast. Nick and Laura, in the other hand, they say that they know what exactly love is, but has nothing as a clear definition or explanation. They only demonstrate their love by kissing or holding hands. The conversation keeps going.
They are the reason that Willy cannot seem to find success, and when he cannot meet his high expectations for himself, he lies and cheats in order to keep the unachievable ideal alive instead of being satisfied with less than perfect. The theme of dreams as aspirations, in this way, is what drives the main characters choices and therefore the entire play. Dreams also represent an escape from reality in Death of a Salesman, many times in the form of hallucinations. It is through Willy’s hallucinations that the audience is exposed to the past and they also provide a window into his feelings of regret. The audience learns about Willy’s affair through his delusional memory at the Chophouse, this form of a
A score can really prohibit a relationship between the two. An audience doesn’t just attend a performance to hear music, they come to watch and absorb the performance as a whole. This is especially the case for singers. If a singer is blocked by a music stand or looking down at music, the meaning of the song just disappears and the passion from the singer is less visible. Equally instrumentalists are expected to play their music in a virtuosic manner, and lead the orchestra professionally, however with music in front of them, their professionalism decreases, as their concentration goes into the reading of the score.
Marriage is all about happiness and learning to love and care for each other. It is something you work hard for each and every day. “Over the past decades our society traditional beliefs and assumptions concerning the institution of marriage have come under attack” (“The Marriage Advantage”, 2002). Many people believed that marriage is just something written on a piece of paper. Marriage is just an outdated institution that no longer regulates relationships.
Thereafter, as messenger arrives and claims that the situation has “peace, but not the kiss of peace” and a “patched up affair” (Eliot 16). This still shows some of the conflict still not being quite fully resolved between the archbishop and the king. This also foreshadows some major conflict that occurs later on in the play. Seeing still not eye-to-eye, the messenger still states that it is not a happy and prognostic relationship. With the departure of the messenger, the somewhat quarrelsome chorus steps in while the priest calls them “foolish, immodest and babbling women” (Eliot 21).
