This provides the audience with a little more humor in the plot. The main form of deception that happens between them is by neither of their doing. The plan is harbored by Don Pedro and his men. The men speak amongst themselves of Beatrice’s love for Benedict knowing that he is nearby listening in. Hero and the other women do the same thing to Beatrice while she is standing nearby.
The constant use of "I" puts us right in the narrator’s head and allows us to empathize with her. Ironic Indirection If we took the narrator’s words at face value, we would believe that her husband is kind and loving, that she really is physically ill, and that women really do get trapped in wallpaper. All of this is questionable at best and mostly dead wrong. This is part of the fun of first person narration – you’re never quite sure if the narrator’s perceptions actually reflect what’s going on. The narrator's tone also clues us into her character – her uncertainty and hesitation at the start of the story, and her determination towards the
Additionally, the transition in language allows the audience to see Mercutio as more than a jokester. Because of this, he gains credibility for his views. Furthermore, as the language used becomes less whimsical and more patently alarming, there is less breathing room between phrases, which creates the image of Mercutio losing control. Mercutio’s delivery of these lines is effective in that the audience is able to sense how destructive and delusional dreams are – to the point that they can drive a sane man mad. Through the “Queen Mab” speech, the audience it introduced to Mercutio’s lightning-quick wit and ability to steal a scene.
By using “paralyzed by wonder” Abbey must mean that the dance was so fantastic that it captivated him and kept him unable to move (23). It shows his amazement because, though one has a negative connotation which suggests a negative feeling, and the other is positive, they are used to express an action that was so great that he could not stop watching, no matter how bad it was to invade one's privacy. Abbey could not help himself when it came to the snakes and he voiced his shame of himself invading their privacy, yet did not cease his observance. The contrast of the negative and positive connotations of words parallels the contrast of Abbey feeling shameful, yet continuing to watch. In the end, his awe and wonderment were so strong that they prevailed
Is not that strange?” At the end of this line, Benedick asks if it is strange for him to love because they have always had a friendly war of words between each other and due to the fact that they squabble frequently. Benedick should take Beatrice’s hands into his own when he says this. Moreover, he should express love and honesty while smiling. Beatrice replies that it is strange when she says “As strange as the thing I know not,” and then she says “It were as possible for me to say that I loved nothing so well as you” but then takes this back by quickly adding “but believe me not.” Beatrice then reveals the cause of her sorrow and her true agenda, Claudio and Hero. While saying these lines, Beatrice should show signs of confusion by ruffling her hair and by walking in different directions and by altering the speed of each
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. In the club, he possesses the power, as the guests cannot leave until he has finished playing. Instead of the clichéd ‘short and sweet’ piece he was meant to play, instead he performed long and, to the musically unappreciative, boring pieces of Brahms and Handel. Moreover, as 'The coffee's made, the supper's warm', the guests are described as ‘ravenous’, and this once again alludes to the base animalistic nature present in all humans. The asyndeton, the absence of conjunction, in
There were many recurring gags throughout the show, and though at times you could see them coming, they were still entertaining enough to get a laugh, if not from a purely comical perspective, then from a satisfying recognition that you foresaw the joke. From the very beginning the gag involving Professor Marcus’ scarf was established, ultimately leading to his demise. The flipping of the planning board, the drug abuse and compulsive cleaning behaviors of Harry Robinson, the disharmonious string instruments playing, Harry’s phallic gestures, Major Courtney’s fascination with women’s clothing, and Louis’ fear of old women are just a portion of the recurring gags that kept the humor going. Out of all the actors, Angela Thorne, who played Mrs. Wilberforce, gave the best performance, though as far as script goes, I would say Professor Marcus had the best lines. He always managed to say something contextually
It makes you think about what muffins have to do with being forgiven. Muffins just contribute irrelevancy and distraction from the main purpose of the scene. Thoughtful laughter could also be a surprise to catch the reader off guard. In the end, it will have the reader thinking, “Why?” “Thoughtful laughter” is when something funny happens and it makes you think about the actual importance of the story, and why that scene was put into the play. Thoughtful laughter is define to be irrelevant to the scene, because muffins and romantic has no similarities in this scene.
However, when the shot cuts away again to a half-naked girl exercising in her window, the protagonist's smile suddenly appears creepy (Geiger & Rutsky, p. 480). The close-up shots of Stewart also serve to portray his 'imprisonment' inside the room. Also, according to Geiger and Rutsky, Hitchcock uses an "extremely rich and complex sound design," with "frequent use of snatches of conversation, the sound of a radio, and street noises," (p. 477). This complex mix of sounds contributes to the suspense at times, particularly when the focus is on more mechanical noises, such as those from the street, but it is less of a factor in Rear Window than in Hitchcock's other films. In The Birds, Hitchcock utilizes close-up shots of the children fleeing the school, as well as close-up shots of the birds attacking them.
