categories of Shakespeare Categories of Shakespeare When dealing with text of Jacobean writers such as Shakespeare, one has a great deal of freedom in interpreting it. His words are full of not only meaning, but entendres, alliterations, and metaphors that allows a great deal of artistic freedom when actualizing it into performance. Perhaps that is why his plays have been a longtime favorite standard performance material, and more recently ( the past 100 years), have become very popular to produ

Conspirators
conspirators When Lee surrendered to Grant at the battle of Gettysburg, many people in America thought this was the end of the Civil War. One Confederate soldier, John Wilkes Booth, refused to believe the North beat the South, so he devised a plan to kidnap the President. He gathered three men and a woman to help with this plan. Each of these people played an important role in the conspiracy to assassinate Abraham Lincoln. They were Lewis Powell, David Herold, George Atzerodt, and Mary Surratt.

A major character that enabled the dramatic art to come into play is John Proctor himself who was a leading character and who had a voice of common sense. Arthur Miller built up to the big scenes seen throughout the play where the characters are made to be seen as more appealing. The characterization shown w

Cyrano De Bergerac is a perfect example of how many protagonists win our allegiance because his sensibilities will not be denied, because he lives lif

Democracy is what we all scream out for when confronted with a situation we deem “unfair”, yet what many of us turn our backs to when the time comes to vote. In this context Democracy will be defined as social equality through equal representation. Democracy is something our nation takes great pride

The very first synthetic polymer was of course leather, a modified natural polymer, an artificially crosslinked form of the protei
Elizabethan Tragedy
Elizabethan Tragedy
Elizabethan Tragedy William Shakespeare\'s Hamlet very closely follows the dramatic conventions of revenge in Elizabethan theater. All revenge tragedies originally stemmed from the Greeks, who wrote and performed the first organized plays. After the Greeks came the Roman, Seneca, who had a great influence on all Elizabethan tragedy writers. Seneca basically laid the foundation for the ideas and the norms for all Renaissance tragic revenge playwrights, including William Shakespeare. The two most

The Glass Menagerie takes place in the small, ghetto apartment of the Wingfield family. Poverty is what has trapped them in their meager living quarters. The escape from this apartment, these relationships, and this way of life is an imperative theme throughout the play. The fire escape, the dance hall, the absence of Mr. Wingfield and the unavoidab

There is no escaping this man, the destroyer. No walls are thick enough to shut him out, no mountain high enough to evade his wrath. He is death... he is predetermined... he is unpredictable...to some he is simply fascinating. The wish to live, the inability to believe in one’s own menacing death, the universal human faith in one

It has become so common to lie or cheat in a relationship that it is not looked at as a loss of moral values for most of today\'s modern and more liberal society.

In the Webster\'s Dictionary the noun, fidelity, is w

Ironically, American writers did not immediately take up consideration of this indigenous phenomenon and the question of its essential traits.

There are now a dozen full-length books in English concerning film noir and undoubtedly

Film Production
film Production In the period previous to the 1930\'s, the predominant form of filmmaking was that of the crank camera. This is not to say that motor-driven cameras were not possible. However, the motors to advance the film were so large that they were simply too cumbersome to be effective. Thus, it was the cameraman himself who would crank the film at a steady rate to expose the frames. When it came to showing the film, on the other hand, motor driven projectors were quite convenient, and by th
