Satire is one of the key elements in any quality comical text. There are so many techniques involved in the broad spectrum of satire, including ridicule, irony and exaggeration, just to name a few. Satire (if understood) makes the text more enjoyable and worthwhile for the responder. This art of comicality has been lost through the years and it would benefit the audience to see a wider variety of texts using such a valuable perception on humanity. But there have been some excellent texts written and filmed that use this technique to its full extent.
Hitler instead blamed many others, mainly the Wemiar and the Jews, this also gained popularity with the people of Germany. The treaty of Versailles also stipulated that Germany must demiliterize, resulting in alot of soliders without jobs. With large unemployment people are more likely to take more radical views as they get more desperate, Hitler used this to his advantage. The treaty of Versailles was a major cause to Hitlers rise to power. Another major cause that resulted in Hitlers rise to power was the Weimar democracy.
That’s when the help of Benito Mussolini came into play. Mussolini, originally socialist, had started to urge fascism in Italy. Spreading his beliefs through propaganda as well promoting some violence to force people into his fascist beliefs driving them away from what was once a socialist country. With an extremely weak liberal government and socialism dying this had led many to believe Mussolini was doing the best and started following his extreme right-wing beliefs. With politics being a major part of Italian depression it had also taken great affect on Germany as well.
Hence, my question to answer is how do two famous examples of British comedy sketches create humour through their use of the English language? Therefore, my title is, an investigation into the language used in comedy sketches. I believe most of the noticeably humorous parts will be contained in the lexical, and discourse sections, because of the unique style of British comedy, which, unlike others, is often focused on words, and the current affairs of society. Methodology I plan to pay particular emphasis to the lexical, pragmatic and discourse frameworks, while analysing these transcripts. I feel the lexical framework is important because a well known feature of British comedy is the use of word play, and hidden, sometimes smutty meanings.
Then There Was Two Literary Device Analysis Literary Device : Dramatic Irony Analysis: The literary devices in “Then There Was Too” are utilized to emphasize the details of the short story which contributes to the establishment of an effective plot and theme. In order to effectively enhance the quality of the story, the author uses dramatic irony. This literary device keeps the readers' interest on the story by creating a contrast between the character's present situation and the action that will unfold. It heightens the intensity as it propels a forward motion in the story and by doing this, the plot of the story, is made more interesting. One example is Priapus’ eagerness to meet his daughter’s boyfriend.
The Hunger Games and Divergent: When Big Government Goes Wrong Today, there are many books and movies about the future and they don’t normally show it in a good light. At a young age, kids today are being exposed to what the world could end up like, especially since these forms of entertainment are so accessible. Many authors who write young adult novels have been taking the opportunity to write intricate stories about the future with their own morals and causes built in. Two major works that are getting a lot of attention right now are the Hunger Games and Divergent. Suzanne Collins and Veronica Roth both took up the challenge of writing some pretty heavy stuff for young readers and still managed to get their messages across.
However as the war progressed and more issues became apparent, the divide between the rich and the poor and the left and the right wing became vaster. Before the war had commenced liberals and socialists were aggravated with German democracy. Germany portrayed itself as a democratic state, however all the power belonged to the elite. Kaiser Wilhelm II even boasted that he had never read the constitution. Therefore Liberals wanted constitutional reform and more power to be given to the Reichstag.
Compare and contrast the foreign policies of Hitler and Mussolini between 1933 and 1943 Foreign policies are central in the rules of the two fascist leaders in Europe at the time, the leaders rose to power by exploiting the nationalist resentment towards the 'injustices' toward their countries in the peace settlements of 1919. Mussolini rose to power 1922 in Italy, while Hitler rose to power in 1933 and became the Chancellor of Germany. Both leaders to carry out their radical Nazi and fascist ideologies in Germany and Italy respectively instituted an aggressive foreign policy. In both cases though, the radical ideologies and over-ambitious foreign policies caused the downfall of the leaders' and their governments. The Paris peace settlement was a key in both of the leaders foreign policies, as they both were weakened in the treaty of Versailles.
Fascism in Italy and Germany Fascism started after World War I, when the world was in shambles and people were confused as to what to do next. Both Hitler and Mussolini gained power where and when they did for several reasons. Fascism is a political philosophy based on several different things, but includes opposing every other type of politics, the belief that the state is greater than the individuals, and the belief in authoritarian leadership. In my opinion, fascism started in Germany and Italy when it did because of the economic state of the country, the devastation and fear of the people within the countries, and the use of both Hitler and Mussolini’s charismatic personalities. People of both Italy and Germany no longer trusted their own governments and had nowhere else to turn, so they decided to give fascism a fair shot.
The way in which she presents text is innovative and exciting and having studied some of her examples, I experimented with similar designs and created some of my own pieces in her style. I particularly like the images she uses in her pieces; they are childlike in a graphic style and are of everyday items with added text. The text is often that which bombards us in modern day life, for example, ‘Click to add title’ or ‘Paper jam’. She gets ideas from life in general and the use of the text in her work makes it quirky and fun. She uses the text to poke fun, ‘Caution – may be hot.
