In my opinion, dramatic irony was added because Creon is slightly arrogant character. I predicted that he would be disappointed in him and that he will get what he deserves for being so evil to the people of his country. Another example is when Creon finds out that Antigone disobeyed his law. King Creon got so angry when the Choragus said, “I have been wondering, King: can it be that the gods have done this” (1077). The Choragus provides
As was said in the production, V for Vendetta, “Ideas are bulletproof.” The writers of the seventeenth century recorded ideas. Ideas, that would last forever. The words the writers put down on paper would make both negative and positive influences on seventeenth century France. Writing moved from simply facts and history to dynamic stories and plays. THESIS French literature was bringing about a change in all writing, and would help to spark the French Revolution.
His faithfulness is shown because the lord's wife tries multiple times to tempt Sir Gawain into doing things that would betray the lord and he does not fall into this temptation until the very last time when all he did was take the girdle that she had offered him. From the sixteenth century, “Doctor Faustus”was the story that seemed the most interesting when it came to heroism. It is not just a normal story about heroes because Doctor Faustus is perceived more as a tragic hero. The story of Doctor Faustus is completely different from what heroism is in British Literature. Since Doctor Faustus is a tragic hero he basically decides what is going to happen to him at the end of the store and since he sold his soul to the Devil the outcome is not very good for him.
There is no way to ‘clean up’ Twain without doing reparable harm to the truth of his work.” This quote clearly shows if Twain were to be alive and see that his masterpiece was being completely reproduced, he would be infuriated and emotionally hurt. Changing his beautiful masterpiece without his permission is ethically inappropriate. As a result, The editors of Huckleberry Finn cannot
They can be that his stories are amazing, dark and deep. That he shaped the English language we know today, and also that his writing style itself was so beautiful that other writers can recognize that as well. The question I think needs to be answered is: Why is Shakespeare so important, and why is he still relevant today? Shakespeare genuinely tried to write for his audiences. He wanted the plot to strike them even if it didn’t sit well with them.
In Jacobean times women were seen as inferior and even in the Victoria era, thus she required external forces to crush her conscience to allow her to fulfil her ambition. Yet she is afraid her feminine qualities will prevent her from achieving the murder of King Duncan. Which would gradually lead to her mental breakdown. Regicide was considered a mortal sin in Jacobean times, one God couldn't forgive. Whereas Browning’s protagonist in The Laboratory sustains her feminine qualities this is reflected in the line “The colours too grim” in which she is referring to her dislike of the colour of poison and that it needs to be 'brightened' up in order to convince her victim to drink it.
(1.3.71)” Banquo also doubts the intension of the witches, he believes that evil always tells one part of the truth in order to earn one’s trust and lead him to destruction. Banquo warns Macbeth, ”But ‘tis strange./And oftentimes, to win us to our harm,/ the instruments of darkness tell us truths,/win us with honest trifles, to betray’s/In deepest consequence. (1.3.124-128)” On the other hand, Macbeth ignored his friends warning and believes in what the witches say. He is over whelmed by his ambition to be king, he said to himself,”Glamis, and the thane of Cawfor!/The greatest is behind. (1.3.118-119).””Two truths are told/,as happy prologues to the swelling act/of the imperial theme.
Believing that their gods had great powers and controlled their world, they than knew what they had to live up to, and provide. They concluded that their hardships and misfortunes were the result of human deeds that displeased the gods - in a word, sin. They believed that when someone displeased their gods, these gods let demons punish the offender with sickness, disease or environmental
Aristophanes, Eupolis, and Cratinus were among the best playwrights who ancient critics recognized for their literary works. Aristophanes’ plays are the only surviving samples of the literary genre conventionally referred to as old comedy. Old comedies were characteristic of topical issues touching in the society and real personalities. New Comedy transcended topical issues to generalized contexts together with stock characters. The move was because playwrights had internalized the perspectives of the people’s cultures after changes.
In the Preface to the 2nd edition of Lyrical Ballads, William Wordsworth said that poetry should be the “the spontaneous overflow of powerful feelings.” The poets, painters and writers of the Romantic era reflect this in many ways. Their progressive thinking, revolutionary action, dramatic anti-establishment artistry and outspoken spontaneity often led them to criticize the aristocratic and political climate of the Age of Enlightenment. They also tended to have a strong disapproval for the scientific rationalization of nature. The Romantics influence was not only on literature, its movement spread throughout the artistic community of Europe and the world causing new developments in the fields of Philosophy, Social Science, Sculpture, Paintings, Music, and much more. In 1822 Jan Vaclav Vorisek published the first impromptu piano piece under the title “Impromptu.” The influence of this piece of music would cause a wave to spread through the way in which composers thought and felt.
