Every piece of literature that has been written uses words, which have concrete meaning in everyday life. As a result of that it cannot ever be completely abstract. Theme is what sustains its link with living, by giving it a topic or idea that extends it beyond the aesthetic, and unites it with the preoccupation of humanity. A work can have one theme or many, and Margaret Laurence's and Davies Robertson's essential humanism makes it very inevitable that in this respect their novels are multifac

OEDIPUS REX In the story of Oedipus Rex, Sophocles portrays the main character, Oedipus, as a good natured person that has bad judgment and frailty. Oedipus makes a few bad decisions and is condemned to profound suffering because of his pride. I agree with Aristotle that he brings it all on to himself because of his own personal pride. One day Oedipus finds out that there is a prophecy that depicts him killing his father and marrying his mother. The prophecy may have been proven untrue if he wo

Sir John Falstaff’s Influence on Prince Hal in I Henry IV In Shakespearean histories, there is always one individual who influences the major character and considerably advances the plot. In I Henry IV by William Shakespeare, Falstaff is such a character. Sir John Falstaff is perhaps the most complex comic character ever invented. He carries a dignified presence in the mind’s eye; and in him, we recognize our internal admiration and jealousy of the rebellious dual personality that we all secret

Modern folklore suggests women look at a man’s relationship with his mother to predict how they will treat other women in their life. Hamlet is a good example of a son’s treatment of his mother reflecting how he will treat the woman he loves because when considering Hamlet’s attitude and treatment of the Ophelia in William Shakespeare’s play, Hamlet, one must first consider how Hamlet treated his mother. A characteristic of Hamlet’s personality is to make broad, sweeping generalizations and now

How does Arthur Miller create dramatic tension in Act 3, Scene 3 of ‘The Crucible’? Arthur Miller’s play ‘The Crucible’, written 1953, displays paranoia, mass- hysteria, and theocracy in its true colours. Revenge driven accusations sweep the town, causing many unjust deaths. The word crucible provokes an image of a big boiling pot. This is extremely realistic, as in Salem the population are left to boil. The suffering and turmoil divides the good, honest people of the town from the deceitful wr

In what ways does Miller succeed in making the moment when Proctor tears up his confession particularly dramatic? In your answer you may consider the pressures he is under both to sign the confession and to destroy it.

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

“Girl Interrupted” FILM REVIEW This film, based on Susanna Kaysen’s best selling true story of the same title, “Girl Interrupted” was a highly emotional drama for me. A reflection from the 1960’s when women could easily be institutionalized, and labeled insane if they did not conform to society’s standards or ideals. Also a reflection of where we have come from in our thinking, and how much of this still effects our lives today. The subject matter involved self-definition and being misunderstood
