1. The Frog King, and Beauty and the Beast, among others, all relate to the idea of one royal marrying an initially less fortunate (in terms of appearance or economic/social stature) person. These folk tales are best described for dealing with life’s vital issues and that is where the drama can begin. Each story delves into rites of passage in some manner, for instance young women leaving their parents to marry and friendship they find with an unlikely candidates. Each story shows children grow up and learn to survive on their own to become adults and live happily ever after having survived very difficult situations, each lady making a deal for their time, love, etc.
Romeo and Juliet and West Side Story “Romeo and Juliet” is a very popular story of two star-crossed lovers and there is hatred between their families, which has three popular movie versions. These are the Franco Zefirelli’s version, Baz Luhrman’s version and the West Side Story.

Felix Huynh English 2D Ms. Krista Lambie 15 March 2012 Contradiction: Romeo’s Multi-Faceted Personality In Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, contradictions are often used to demonstrate Romeo’s multi-faceted character. Juliet is the first figure to use contradiction in explaining Romeo. These contradictions are Juliet's way of expressing how hurt and confused she feels after hearing that Romeo has killed her cousin. Juliet said “O serpent heart, hid with a flowering face! Did ever dragon keep so fair a cave?”(96).
Romeo and Juliet can be interpreted in many different ways, even though it follows the same script. Franco Zeffirelli’s Romeo and Juliet and Baz Luhrmann’s Romeo + Juliet are similar in many ways, however they also differ significantly. Both films are based on Shakespeare’s play and have used the language in which Shakespeare originally wrote the play. However, in Baz Luhrmann’s version, some lines have been cut. Both films provide very different perspectives on Shakespeare's text because of the different eras in which they were set.
“O she is rich in beauty, only poor that when she dies, with beauty dies her store.” – Romeo is saying that she is beautiful, but it is a shame that she will not pass her beauty down to anyone because she does not want to have children. 3) Describe the Nurse. Describe her relationship with Juliet. Nurse is a comic relief character in this tragic play. She is a trusted confidant in the Capulet family.
One more time she pushes harder than ever, but it is too much and she dies. The frog is not at all sympathetic. He says she should have listened to her own voice rather than being like someone else—except this has been his advice to her all along. In searching for satire, this addresses those who hold a certain place in society, who are not overly talented, but are tolerated (frog). When someone new arrives on the scene (the bird), the first guy tries to take the attention away from her gift and imposes his actions/manners onto her.
Here, I make an account on the tragedy of the “Moor of Venice” and his subordinate, who schemes much of the tragedy yet seems to love him like an angel. Unlike Hamlet, most of what happens in Othello is of a greater logical fit. In a sense, the character Iago tricks most of the people he loathes including the mighty moor, Othello. All of these schemes
In both the “Goblin Market” and “The Son’s Veto” women fall prey to overbearing male dominance; the roles that these female characters portray are similar to that of the gender roles men and women possessed during the Victorian er, though ea.ach protagonist deals with the struggle in very different ways. Lizzie breaks the constriction of gender roles by redefining women’s strength and fighting the goblins to save her sister, while Sophy allows herself to be defined by how Victorian society dictates the ways in which she should act. Laura and Sophy are alike however in the manner in which they let themselves be victimized. Lizzie is different because she finds the power within herself to resist the goblin’s temptations even after they threaten her, though Sophie ultimately succumbs to the controlling nature of the masculine forces around her. Through reference to specific images, including the fruit in “Goblin Market” and the cross in “The Son’s Veto” it is possible for the reader to see the different ways in which Laura, Lizzie, and Sophy handle the power struggles that defined the Victorian era.
