They can also be used to shorten a person's name, like Dick, for Richard. Nicknames, whether positive or negative, are only describing a person's general characteristics.

He did not have to play by himself but he would for some reason always reject our offers that myself and the other kids there made to him.

Jude the Obscure In Hardy's Jude the Obscure, Hardy shows his views on religion and commitment to the Church which were said to have declined in the latter years of his life. (Ingham, xxvii) Throughout the book Hardy displays his feeling that religion is something that people use in order to satisfy themselves by giving their lives' meaning. One instance in which Hardy clearly displays this is when he writes, It had been the yearning of his heart to find something to anchor on, to cling to. (

Throughout the play a distinction is made between how things appear on the outside and how they are in reality, or on the inside. The issue of appearance versus reality is demonstrated in varied ways, mainly by the use of real-life situations. The first representation of this is Shylock’s generosity wi

It is possible to read the book literally, as a mere story about boys marooned on an island. It is also possible to read the book as an indictment of the nature of man - as being pure evil without society's boundaries.

Over the years, various persons have expressed doubt as to the authorship of William Shakespeare. These doubts are as old as his plays.

SHYLOCK: The Jew An in-depth character analysis Often, The character Shylock, in Shakespeare’s The Merchant of Venice, is portrayed as a beastly monstrosity, with a lust for Antonio’s life. Through a more careful examination it can be determined that Shylock was an upstanding member of his community, who endured abuse, forgave easily, and upheld the customs and law. Shylock endured much of Antonio’s abuse, overt a long period of time. This can be seen by the sheer volume of disgraces he has bor

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
