Equus is great art because it forces us to re-examine the very fundame
‘Equus is great art because it forces us to re-examine the very fundamentals of our existence.’ Discuss. The title statement seems to assume that we accept Equus as great art, leaving us to discuss the reason for why it is considered so. I would agree with this assumption, Equus is great art in that it does force its audience to re-examine the fundamentals of our existence to some extent. Fighting against Shaffer’s other great works, Equus is still widely considered his “crowning dramatic achiev

Family Any child who grew up in a large family can tell you that staying in the bathroom for more than a minute without someone trying to bang it down is luxury. It is understood that time alone or any privacy at all is not even an option. This can be pretty frustrating because, in a big family, everybody needs to know everybody’s business. Having more than one child may, on the surface, seem like a negative way to raise a family. However, growing up with brothers and/or sisters has the potentia

George Orwell Wrt 102 What George Orwell is basically saying in Politics and the English Language is that a writer should write for an aesthetic experience. When one is not treating his work as art, the result of that writing is simply worthless. A writer must put full thought and effort in his writing rather than being careless or indifferent to what he's doing. Orwell cited some examples in the text that are faulty in one way or another. In many of the examples. the message from the writer to

Even though Macbeth killed Duncan, Lady Macbeth is the one responsible for Duncan’s murder. The way she manipulated Macbeth shows that she is truly evil. The idea of murdering Duncan was hers; Macbeth would not have even thought of killing Duncan on his own. Lady Macbeth was willing to do anything to make sure Duncan was killed, while M

Mercutio, in his own comic role serves as a foil for Romeo by highlighting his youth, innocence and the purity of his love which sets Romeo as the innocent tragic hero. His rash purist of honour softens our impression of Romeo’s rashness and his concept of love as a physical pursuit casts Romeo’s love for Juliet into a spiritual li

Othello Emilia is a feisty harlot, while Desdemona is a passive victim. How fair description is this of Emilia and Desdemona. This statement is harshly definitive of the two characters.
