Juliet: I will never be satisfied, until I see Romeo. I will prepare Romeo the poison that Romeo will receive. To revenge the love I have for my cousin. Lady Capulet: You find the way of doing that and I’ll find a man to send it. Now I have happy news.
The key part of this however is that Iago is tempting Cassio, very like the devil himself tries to tempt us. Iago tempts Cassio in this way but he remains very proper and remarks only that ‘She’s a most of exquisite lady’. His initial remarks are soon followed by 'And I’ll warrant her full of game’. an inappropriate statement in reference to his captains wife designed to manipulate Cassio into making lecherous comments about Desdemona. We can see various factors of the language
Not only are all these characters and their attributes the same in both the play and the film, but many of the scenes are quite similar too. In the original play version, Valvert insults Cyrano by saying, “You’re nose is...rather large!” (Rostand, 30). Cyrano expresses how lame this insult is by giving quite a comeback, “You are too
The actors speak Shakespeare’s dialogue eloquently and beautifully which I can personally deem as poetry in motion. Having Macbeth interpreted this way; I believe that it makes it much more relatable and easier to understand. Often times, people have trouble when it comes to Shakespeare’s choice of words and how he lays out the discourse of his plays. In this film, that dilemma seems to be thrown out the window and the words paired with the actions, actors, and setting in the film, make it effortless to follow along. The acting is spot-on in this film.
The prince listens to Lady Capulet who wants Romeo killed "Romeo slew Tybalt, Romeo must not live." Prince Escales comes to the decision Romeo will not be killed because Tybalt slew Mercutio first so therefore Romeo is banished from Verona under pain of death, "Let Romeo hence in haste, else, when he is found, that hour is his last." Act 3 scene 1 is a very important scene in the play; it is the pivotal scene of the whole play and is greatly linked to act 5 scene 3. A very effective way that Shakespeare uses to create tension in the audience is to use a dramatic irony, where the audience knows something that the characters do not. This is used in the previous scene when Romeo and Juliet marry in secret by Friar Lawrence.
Macbeth is a relatively simple play that was written by Shakespeare during the Elizabethan times. In writing Macbeth, Shakespeare created an almost perfect plot line, (with no sub plot) a short introduction, rapid rising action, a climax that occurs half way through the play, followed by rapid and intense falling action and a brief conclusion. One of Shakespeare's reasons for writing the play was to illustrate the terrible consequences of murdering a king. The play was first performed in 1605, the year of the Gunpowder Plot, and this theme would be very politically acceptable to an audience composed of members of the Royal court. Shakespeare shows the murderers of a king tormented by their own guilt and driven to their doom.
John Steinbeck: Of Mice and Men The fact that in the first line Curley's wife is described to have cut of the ray of light shows that she is of somewhat danger to both George and Lennie. Another point is Steinbeck uses the word glanced, ‘Both men glanced up’, this show that both George and Lennie will be distracted by Curley’s wife, but not for long as the verb ‘glanced’ means to look quickly or briefly. Furthermore the text later goes on to say how she was heavily made up in rouge lips, red finger nails, with red ostrich feathers on top of her red shoes. The fact that Steinbeck describes her to be heavily made up in mainly the colour red shows how she is presented to already be sexualised within the first three lines. In the extract Steinbeck
Comic Relief Date: 25/07/2011 Course Code: ENG4U Shakespeare often adds some comedy to his plays. It is generally known as ‘comic relief’ because the tragedy is so overwhelming with murders, ghosts, suicides and anguish. It gives everyone some breathing room before the intensity of the next act. Comic relief is a humorous scene, or incident occurring in the middle of a serious or tragic selection and intentionally designed to relieve emotional stress. At the same time to increase, and emphasize the tragic plot.
He claims Othello was responsible for his own downfall and demotes Iago to the role of just catalyst. “I told him what I thought and told no more than what he found was apt and true” Equivocations like the witches in Macbeth. Leavis comments on Othello’s perceived ‘self centeredness’ and his ‘pride, sensual possessiveness, appetite and love of loving.’ Quotes to illustrate his pomposity and arrogance, ‘Let him (Brabantio) do his spite (in response to Othello’s rather alarming lack of judgement in secretly marrying a senator’s daughter), my services (things done for Venice) will out-tongue his complaints (over-ride) Desdemona asks, ‘to whom?..with whom?..How?’ (am I a whore?) Othello just responds with ‘Away, away,
