Everyone in A Man For All Seasons is Pursuing Their Own Ends. What Makes More Different? Often, it is impossible to reach our goals without resorting to some sort of pragmatism.

Some characters disregard all sense of morality as they plunge into a approach which primarily encompasses self-interest. In all, most of the characters in the play personify sel...

Marranos A Lost People
Marranos: A Lost People Some people might call them New Jews, some New Christians, and others call them Marranos. The majority of the world population has no idea who the Marranos are.

Dialectic And Spectacle In The Harrowing Of Hell
Dialectic And Spectacle In The Harrowing Of Hell Roland Barthes's essay on The World of Wrestling draws analogically on the ancient theatre to contextualize wrestling as a cultural myth where the grandiloquence of the ancient is preserved and the spectacle of excess is displayed. Barthes's critique -- which is above all a rewriting of what was to understand what is -- is useful here insofar as it may be applied back to theatre as another open-air spectacle. But in this case, not the theatre of t...

Ethan Frome
Ethan Frome Ehtan Frome Ethan Frome was the most striking figure in Starkfield. He had great height and a look of careless power.

Ethan was stiffened and grizzled like an old man, even though he was young. Frome would appear almost barbaric in your first glance at him. For this reason he was ostracized, isolated...

Godot And Repitition
Godot And Repitition Nothing to be done, is one of the many phrases that is repeated again and again throughout Samuel Becketts Waiting For Godot. Godot is an existentialist play that reads like somewhat of a language poem. That is to say, Beckett is not interested in the reader interpreting his words, but simply listening to the words and viewing the actions of his perfectly mismatched characters. Beckett uses the standard Vaudevillian style to present a play that savors of the human conditi...

Franz Josef Haydn
Franz Josef Haydn Franz Josef Haydn: Franz Josef Haydn wrote quite a few concerti for piano, which have never really enjoyed the popularity of such pieces by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.
