To Grade or Not to Grade, That is the Problem- What’s your GPA (Grade Point Average)? - Have you taken this course before? What did you get?In his essay The Farce Called Grading, Arthur E. Lean questions the use of asking these kinds of questions. Grades have become part of our lives as students. People need a grading system and seem to assume it to be necessary and intrinsic to the process of formal education(Lean 131). He refers to the grade as a symbol purporting to express a measurement

Hamlet was indeed a very sane man He was only feigning madness to furt
Hamlet was indeed a very sane man. He was only feigning madness to further his own plans for revenge. His words were so cleverly constructed that others will perceive him as mad. It is this consistent cleverness that is the ultimate evidence of his complete sanity. Can a mad person be so clever? No, a mad person cannot. Hamlet is sane and brilliant. After Hamlet, Horatio, and Marcellus see the ghost, Hamlet tells Horatio that he is going to feign madness. If Horatio is to notice Hamlet acting

Hamlet went through various emotional states because of different unfortunate circumstances that confronted him. Yet Hamlet never went so far over the edge so as to not come back from reality, yet for reasons psychological, he procrastinated actions that he should have taken, until it was too late. I will first discuss Hamlet, the origins for his queer behavior and if it twas feigned or not. In the first act we see that Hamlet is a sort of idealistic man coming back to the world from universi

Ophelia and Gertrude. Two different women who seem to be trapped in the same circumstances in relation to Hamlet. Gertrude, Hamlet's mother and the Queen of Denmark. She is married to the present King, Claudius, who is suspected by Hamlet to have killed his father, King Hamlet, who also happens to be Claudius's brother. Gerturde has somehow ended up in the plot of King Hamlet's death and in the eyes of her son, seems to be a monster and an aide to an adulterating deed. Ophelia, the daughter of

Over the years various persons have expressed doubt as to the authorsh
Over the years, various persons have expressed doubt as to the authorship of William Shakespeare. These doubts are as old as his plays. American author, Henry James once said, ³I am haunted by the conviction that the divine William is the biggest and the most successful fraud ever practiced on a patient world. (Hoffman 27) On the other hand, author Calvin Hoffman was convinced that Shakespeare was ³the author of the most magnificent English dramatic prose and poetry ever written. (Hoffman 27) B
Hamlet In His Right Minds Eye
Hamlet In His Right Minds Eye
Hamlet: In His Right Mind’s Eye Crazy, or not crazy- That is the question. The matter of Hamlet’s so called madness, has been an item of debate since the first performance, and will probably be a continuing argument well into the future. I believe Hamlet was not crazy, because he proves to be in complete control of his psyche in several parts of the play. These three reasons are the main points of argument for Hamlet’s sanity. His behaviors is only erratic in front of certain people, he shows l

13. Were the Elizabethans more bloodthirsty or tolerant of violence on stage than we are? In addition to the visible bloodletting, there is endless discussion of past gory deeds. Offstage violence is even brought into view in the form of a severed head. It's almost as though such over-exposure is designed to make it ordinary. At the same time, consider the basic topic of the play, the usurpation of the crown of England and its consequences. These are dramatic events. They can support the highly
IMAGERY
IMAGERY
IMAGERY The term imagery has various applications. Generally, imagery includes all kinds of sense perception (not just visual pictures). In a more limited application, the term describes visible objects only. But the term is perhaps most commonly used to describe figurative language, which is as a theme in literature. An example is animal imagery in Othello When Iago tortures Othello with animal images of his wife's supposed infidelity, were they as prime as goats, as hot as monkeys… (3.3.403
The Irony of Blindness
The Irony of Blindness
The Irony of Blindness In literature, the two prominent forms of blindness, physical and metaphorical, are often very closely related and dependent on each other to exist. In Sophocles’ Oedipus the King, the significance of this relationship is carried even further as it is soon established that the two cannot actually coexist. (Searle, 7) In this play, there are many hints of irony laced throughout the tragedy. “Oedipus Rex is a tragedy of a man who attempts to flee a prophecy out of fear of wh
To What Extent Is Hamlets Madness Feigned
To What Extent Is Hamlets Madness Feigned
To What Extent Is Hamlet’s Madness Feigned? One of the central issues in Shakespeare’s play Hamlet is madness. The focus of my essay revolves around Young Hamlet and the questions posed by this character in respect of his sanity. Firstly, is Hamlet’s madness entirely feigned, as he initially leads us, the audience, to believe? To what extent is Hamlet’s madness an act? Does Hamlet’s feigned madness shield him from actually going mad? Or, an opposing proposition would be, does Hamlet’s feigned ma

A Walk in the Night
A Walk in the Night A Walk in the Night recounts a single terrible night when the fragile world of Mikey Adonis, a young Coloured steel worker, disintegrates. As the pressures on Mikey build, we see a decent man driven to an act of brutality by a racist society which humiliates him at every turn. The parallels with Richard Wright's seminal portrait of black rage in Native Son are unavoidable. Mikey has just been fired from his job because he objected when his foreman called him kaffir, a racial

The first line is paradoxical in that there are separate meanings for the words closed and close --

Shakespears Hamlet Investigating Hamlet's Insanity
Shakespear’s “Hamlet” : Investigating Hamlet's Insanity Nicolas Hutchison Mrs. Bruce 10/11/98 Hamlet is one of Shakespeare’s most famous plays, and hardest to perform. The reason it is so hard to perform is because of the main character Hamlet. Hamlet is an easily liked character that must revenge his father’s death. He is forced to act insane in order to find out the truth of his father’s death. Hamlet does an excellent job of acting insane, so good, in fact, that it is questioned if he was ac

Hamlets problem is his delay in killing the king Hamlets delay in kill
Hamlet’s problem is his delay in killing the king. Hamlet’s delay in killing his uncle, the king, is the action on which the entire play depends. His delay makes his appearance as a deeply troubled man with many sides to his character. Revenge and moral thought are brought upon Hamlet simultaneously. He cannot act upon a situation immediately because his great intelligence provides him with many solutions. Frye says, “Hamlet analyzes virtually every alternative which would have occurred to a th

CHAPTER 1
CHAPTER 1 - In the opening paragraph, Huck introduces himself to us as the narrator of the story. He talks to us in a relaxed, matter-of-fact tone that makes him sound friendly, honest, and maybe a little less respectful than he should be. He does, after all, come close to calling Mark Twain a liar. Try to imagine Twain writing that paragraph, in which he has a fictional character accuse him of stretching the truth in an earlier book. Twain seems to be sharing a joke with you, the reader, but

Mary Arden, his mother, was the daughter of a well-to-do farmer from Wilmcote, a nearby village. She was Roman Catholic and had strong beliefs in her re
Just Do Something Hamlet
Just Do Something Hamlet
Just Do Something, Hamlet Action plays an important role in drama, and is well modified by dialogue. In Shakespeare's Hamlet, there is much talk of action. Unfortunately, there is mostly talk of action on Hamlet's part and very little action taken. This becomes frustrating for the audience because Hamlet constantly tortures himself and others with his thought process and never really intentionally acts on it until it is too late. In the first act of the play, Hamlet's grief of his father's deat

Hamlet Mood Essay
Hamlet Mood Essay Hamlet Mood Essay Act 1 of Shakespeare’s Hamlet is an important act of the play because it sets the reader up with the mood of the play through conversations and events that happen. These moods set up are mysterious, mournful, and revengeful. With these moods set in place they will most likely determine the actions of Hamlet and other events that unfold throughout this tragedy. Right away in the first scene and a few others you can see that there is a going to be a mysterious
Hamlet
Hamlet
hamlet Hamlet One of the most unique elements of the Hamlet character is that he is so human. Many types of readers can identify with him. Hamlet is imperfect, and he is fretful. Hamlet has human properties, and it is his humanity that I intend to explore. Indeed it is these human qualities and imperfections that make his story so tragic. Another tragic part of the play is the plays irony. Irony is an important tool in the hands of the playwright to achieve both comical and/or dramatic effect. T

Adventures Of Huck Finn Mark Twain’s The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is a novel about a young boy’s coming of age in the Missouri of the mid-1800’s. The main character, Huckleberry Finn, spends much time in the novel floating down the Mississippi River on a raft with a runaway slave named Jim.

So much so, in fact, that an influential movie of a generation, Star Wars, really does seem like it came out a long, long time ago, from a galaxy far, far away.
