Bob Dylan once said, “ Allen Ginsberg is both tragic and dynamic, a lyrical genius, a con-man extraordinaire and probably the single greatest influence on American poetical voice since Whitman.” Helen Vendler voiced her opinion on Ginsberg, stating, “ Ginsberg is responsible for loosening the breath of American poetry at mid - century....... Most of all, he has demonstrated that there is nothing in American social and erotic reality which cannot find a place. His powerful mixture of Blake, Whit

The most important line in Hamlet is The plays the thing wherein Ill
The most important line in Hamlet is, The play’s the thing, wherein I’ll catch the conscience of the king. (II, ii, 617). In the play, the issue of a clear conscience forms a key motif. When the conscience of the characters appears, it does so as a result of some action; as in the case of the aforementioned line, which follows Hamlet’s conversation with the player. This line is of particular significance because it ties action and its effect on the conscience of the characters. The nature of

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

William Shakespeare, in his Sonnet 73 and Sonnet 116, sets forth his vision of the unchanging, persistent and immovable nature of true love. According to Shakespeare, love is truly till death do us part, and possibly beyond. Physical infirmity, the ravages of age, or even one's partner's inconstancy have no effect upon the affections of one who sincerely loves. His notion of love is not a romantic one in which an idealized vision of a lover is embraced. Instead he recognizes the weaknesses to

Shakespeare uses similar comic elements to effect
Shakespeare uses similar comic elements to effect similar outcomes in his works. Many of his plays utilize trickery and disguise to accomplish similar endings. Trickery plays a major role in The Merchant of Venice and drives most of the action, while mistaken identity, specifically Portia's disguise as the learned attorney's representative, plays a major role in the resolution of the play. The first instance of trickery in the play is Bassanio's plan to present himself as a financially sound

The older generation is Lear himself, and the younger generation consists of his daughters Goneril, Regan and Cordelia. In the second plot of the play, Gloucester represents the older generation, and his sons, Edmund and Edgar exemplifies the younger generation. Both younger generations can be divided into two dist

He does this without giving it a second thought and never suffers from any guilt or remorse for his actions. Considering that these two men were friends from his youth, this would at first glance seem to reflect poorly on his character. However, one must c

Measure for Measure and Hamlet
Measure for Measure and Hamlet Although corruption in the world and characters are a theme around which both Measure for Measure and Hamlet are constructed, it seems erroneous to encapsulate these Shakespearean plays solely in such a realm. The villains in both plays are not as deeply rooted in corruption as it would originally appear. Claudius and Angelo are both complex characters who never fully give themselves to sin and villainy. Their indiscretions seem to stem from, at least, a fundamenta

Representation of female characters in Shakespeare
Representation of female characters in Shakespeare Shakespearean plays are written within the patriarchal ideologies of the Elizabethan era. Women were considered to be subordinate to men. This subordinance was clearly projected in the portrayal and representation of women and their sexuality. The 1970’s and the rise of feminism challenged these Shakespearean, stereotypical representations. These new, feminist readings brought new perspectives to Shakespeare’s works.

On Literature in History 2: Richard II Due 14/05/99 Richard II is a play of sensibility, which is unique in Elizabethan literature for two reasons; firstly it looked to the 14th century for inspiration and secondly it emphasised the importance of emotions.

If a corrupt leader runs a nation it will coincidentally become corrupt. This is evident in modern society and even fictionally based dramas. An exemplification of this would be William Shakespeare’s Hamlet. In Hamlet, the most corrupt character is Claudius, the newly appointed king of Denmark.
