The use of “...we are, for as long as we are.” (Line 16 and 17) Shows that Duffy is inviting her readers into the poem to help reflect upon how she feels. The formats of these pieces are all varied. Shakespeare firstly has written a play. However, within his play he writes a few sonnets to show the feelings of love between both Romeo and Juliet. One of the famous sonnets in the play is in act 1 scene 5, where Romeo shows his true feelings for Juliet during their first encounter.
William Shakespeare's tragedy, Romeo and Juliet is a popular study for various themes, including love. The five types of love include unrequited love, romantic love, parental love, friendship and love of family honor. Love is an overpowering force that takes over all other values, loyalties and emotions.The ones I will be elaborating is romantic love and love of family honor. I find these the direct cause of the eventual ending of the plot- the death of Romeo Montague and Juliet Capulet. The romantic love of Romeo and Juliet has become very popular and is the ideal example of star-crossed lovers.
Shakespeare uses a combination of techniques to show a true heartedness of love between Romeo and Juliet in Act 1 Scene 5 and Act 2 scene 2. Elements of Shakespeare's techniques can be seen also in poems from the Love Poetry Anthology. I will be exploring the ways how all three the writers portray strong feelings love. In Act 1 scene 5 Shakespeare sets the scene for the rest of the play of Romeo and Juliet, Shakespeare sets the Scene for the rest of the play in Act 1 scene 5 of Romeo and Juliet; he shows how the lovers meet and the intensity and depth of love that is then created between them. When Romeo first sets sight Juliet he is stunned by the sight, the overwhelming feeling he experiences is made obvious by him when he sighs 'O', which shows the audience that he has an over flow of emotions and longs to be with Juliet.
‘Distinctively visual’ is something that stand out and leaves an impressionable print, it can either be seen or imagined. Language and visual techniques are used to create images which help to see the world as the composers had created. Distinctively visual is explored in the movie “Run Lola Run” directed by Tom Tykwer and the poem “Medusa” by Carol Ann Duffy. By using effective visual techniques, music, using various structures and different contrasts. “Run Lola Run” is a post-modern text using stylised animation as a turning point in its three part narrative following Lola the protagonists, attempts beat the clock to get a hundred marks for her boyfriend.
In Greta Christina’s essay, “Are We Having Sex Now or What?,” Christina contemplates the definition of sex, and provides counter examples to why her proposed definitions are invalid. Interestingly, rather than blatantly trying to present the readers with a definition, Christina recounts her past and tries to determine which of her personal sexual encounters, whether with men or women, were considered sex. Then, she tries to formulate a definition that is able to describe all the times she had sex. Although she is able to come up with a couple different definitions, she ultimately ends up where she started—still searching for an answer to her question. One of the definitions that Christina presents is that sex is the acknowledgement and sexual enjoyment of at least one of the individuals who partakes in the sex that he or she just had sex.
She states that if we continue to participate we will be a “repressive society” which to me seems very one sided, she speaks to everyone in this essay, because she wants everyone to know that if you participate in the pc, we are not only being ridiculous but we are being a “repressive society.” This essay, or what seems to be an essay, is not an effective argument because of the way she argues, she does not see things from both sides, but she chooses to voice her side and why she thinks it is ridiculous! By just reading the essay once, made me believe that this is not a great essay or argumentative essay why? Because she just argues her point and not seeing it through how other people think of it, just her point of view. As I have stated in my introduction,
Suzanne Eastwood Dr. Caughron Literature Class 4 10 December 2012 Romeo and Juliet: An Analysis of Various Forms of Love In the romantic tragedy, Romeo and Juliet, Shakespeare illustrates through character relationships the power of Romeo’s and Juliet’s agape love for each other and its transcendence over all other forms of love. Shakespeare permits the way the characters speak and relate to each other to reveal truths about the general nature of love and the distinguishing features of agape love. Particular relationships in the drama, Romeo’s love for Rosaline and Friar Lawrence’s fatherly love for Romeo, provide evidence for the potency of Romeo’s genuine, sacrificial love for Juliet. One particular relationship which accentuates Romeo’s love for Juliet is Romeo’s love for Rosaline which demonstrates eros love. While Romeo felt passionate, eros love for Rosaline, the sincerity was lacking and eventually deteriorated.
Similarities between Edward de vere and characters like Hamlet is also very good proof to argue the authorship debate with. The way hamlets life is made out to be, and how it is so similar to de Vere suggest that Edwards life was put in a play, and called Hamlet, because they had so many similarities between the two. Another similarity with Edward de Vere and his life is Notably Polonius, this is a line from “young men falling out at tennis.” Oxfordians argue that this is also connect to
Both texts revel the tension between idealism and reality. Analyse and compare how this shared idea is represented in the texts and evaluate the extent to which it is impacted by the composers’ context. When does our attainable dream of love, become an idealised fantasy? The universal conceptualization of love is a subject explored throughout history and literature. Elizabeth Barrett-Browning’s sonnet sequence Sonnets from the Portugeuse, explores the experence of idealised love in the patriarchal confines of the Victorian era, juxtaposed against F. Scott Fitzgerald’s novel The Great Gatsby, which comments on the unatanability of idealised love due to the corruption of the American dream.
An Inspector calls is a script of a fiction play, a mystery. It’s written by J.B Priestley and set in the Edwardian age.

Stage directions are one example of these techniques.
