Priestley had witnessed the horrific events of both wars and realized the people in upper classes were still snobby and pessimistic when it came to changing their views in the class system. In creating Sheila's character, Priestley was hoping the audience would take on board his powerful message. Priestley uses a range of interesting techniques in order to present Sheila's change, the most obvious methods he uses is language techniques to convey certain messages. At the beginning of the play, Sheila is presented as a stereotypical middle class young woman - immature and spoilt. Priestley brings this out through Sheila's character through her childish language such as "I'm sorry Daddy and "go on Mummy".
He uses and controls others to diminish the psychological wellbeing of Othello. All of the characters in the book trust him including Othello, which makes him more deceitful. In the beginning of the play Iago say’s “I follow him to serve my turn upon him”. This just reinforces the fact that Iago is fraudulent and untrustworthy. Iago also say’s “My lord, you know I love you” which juxtaposes his previous quote “I hate the moor”.
Hamlet portrays falsity when using rage against Ophelia after discovering she has been apart of a plot of revenge. He uses this as an opportunity to deny his love for her and degrade her until she felt horrible about her self. “I did love you once but you should have not belived me; for virtue cannot so inoculate our old stock but we shall relish of it. I loved you not.”(3.1.114-119). It becomes clear that Hamlet did truly love Ophelia, yet hid it because he was a coward.
Cherry seems to become more nutty when she falls for Lewis. But that’s what the audience wants to see, the normality of people turning mad because of love. Nowra is trying to cut out the fact that these people are really insane and hid it with the fact that love is what is important in this play, for people to understand that love makes you mad whether you are or not. As Julie says ‘Love is hallucinating without the
Many of them dislike him through jealousy; only a handful detests him fearing that he will be a tyrant. To assess Caesar’s personality in a correct perspective, it is necessary to keep this background in mind. In the unfolding events of the tragedy, we can see the various elements of Caesar’s character, ranging from his love to his wife and friends to his boastful vanity and arrogance which ultimately pave the way for his own end. Caesar disliked Contemplation of the sequence of events, as unfolding in the play, may be a decent approach for this evaluation. In the opening scene, workers come out on the streets, without going for work, to see Caesar returning to Rome in triumph over Pompey.
well, for the matter of fact all i had to do was make this up and it worked.... i hope. a central motif in the play is trickery or deceit, whether for good or evil purposes. counterfeiting, or concealing one's true feelings, is part of this motif. everyone seems to lie; good characters as well as evil ones engage in deceit as they attempt to conceal their feelings: beatrice and benedick mask their feelings for one another with bitter insults; don john spies on claudio and hero; don pedro and his 'crew' deceive benedick and beatrice. who hides and what is hidden?
They fall in love rapidly, however can't communicate well as their families don't know and are meant to be sworn enemies. I will be discussing how poor communication leads to the tragedy and how communication varies with different people. The chosen scene, which fits best in describing poor communication, is scene 3 acts 5. This scene is important because it helps us understand the lack of communication. The audience sees this play as a play filled with verbal irony, dramatic irony, however it is most... Romeo and Juliet Act 3 Scene 5 Act 3 Scene 5 is a crucial factor in the entire play as it symbolizes the change which takes place in so many relationships.
A Tragic Hero in one of Shakespears plays are noble men who have a great flaw and because of that flaw goes threw a downfall but in the end they learn a lesson.

Bottom is a complete extraovert, bossy, energetic and quite annoying. 'Now, name the rest of the players', 'First, good Peter Quince, say what the play treats on, then read the names of the actors; and so grow to the point', 'You were best to call them generally, man by man, according to the strip' — he tells the director (Peter Quince) what to do. At first the reader might dislike Bottom because of his sefishness but as his behaviour makes him shown as an idiot the weaver becomes our favourite comical figure in
Pamela Lora Ap Literature Period 2 10/29/09 “Oedipus Rex” Previously I have mentioned we have common flaws, one flaw that was pionted out in the play was selfishness. One of the characters that had that flaw was Teiresias, the soothsayer. In the play Oedipus calls Teiresias to come and see if he could see who was the murderer of king Laios. But Teiresias saw more than that but he didn’t want to be the one to tell Oedipus the truth. So Teiresias kept rebelling against Oepidus to let him go and not to bother him.
