Macbeth: Man Of Established Character

... in his conduct mainly by an inordinate desire for worldly honors; his delight lies primarily in buying golden opinions from all sorts of people. But we must not, therefore, deny him an entirely human complexity of motives. For example, his fighting in Duncan's service is magnificent and courageous, and his evident joy in it is traceable in art to the natural pleasure which accompanies the explosive expenditure of prodigious physical energy and the euphoria which follows.

Othello: Iago As Satan

... and Folk Tales, Metaphysical Bible Dictionary)have been quick to point out. Coincidentally enough, those are also traits which we as a class were quick to point out for Iago. One of the most blatantly deceiving things Iago said was that "Desdemona is directly in love with him"2; him being Michael Cassio. As readers, we know that this is completely untrue even from the beginning. In Act 1 Scene 3 Line 292, Desdemona says "I love him," and goes on demanding, "Let me go with him"3 ; she was talking about Othello and traveling with him to Cyprus. ...

... selling points of is that it is such a unique play. It would be quite hard to try and find a play which was written with more intelligence and ingenuity. In the play, Shakespeare actually includes a part where the characters in the play actually sit and watch a play being performed. The idea of a play within a play just adds more to the overall effect of the play, and makes the events seem more real and believable.

Throughout the movie the family's clothing, possessions and even the car added to the effect that Steinbeck had created when he wrote his novel long ago. As the movie progresses, there is actually two stories, one of the individual journey of the Joad family, and one for telling the general plight of the migrants.

... is a computer video game designed, quite obviously, for entertainment purposes. The second ad is from PC World, which is of a much more technical nature than its previous counterpart.

Antigone And Ismene

... Creon has refused to give a proper burial for the slain Polyneices, brother of Ismene and Antigone. Infuriated by this injustice, Antigone shares the tragic news with Ismene.

Thus, from the start, Ismene is characterized as traditionally "feminine", a helpless woman that pays no mind to political affairs. Doubting the wisdom of her sisters plan to break the law and bury Polyneices, Ismene argues: ...

This is also her only good movie -- you can't say anything nice about XANADU, so don't say anything at all. People also love GREASE because it's the quintessential 50's nostalgia movie. It has everything, from the slumber party and malt shop to the dance contest and drag race. Better yet, it has a sense of humor about those days, to the point of including ultimate icon ...

King Lear: A Story Of Blindness

... daughters, Goneril, Regan, and Cordelia, for who they really are until it is too late. The other story, of which I am writing, involves Gloucester and his two sons, Edgar and Edmund, and Gloucester’s similar inability to see beyond himself. An example of this inability occurs in the opening scene, when Gloucester is talking with Kent about his bastard son, Edmund. He does not seem to be able to understand how what he is saying affects Edmund. Gloucester tells Kent that he has an older son, “by order of law” (legitimate), and then h ...

William Shakespeare: Most Famous Of All English Writers

... married for a short while, however, the marriage was suspected to be an unhappy one because he spent much of his later life away from his family. Shakespeare's misfortune in love is shown in Much Ado About Nothing when it is said, "Speak low if you speak love." (Shakespeare). Contrary to this, the positive side of love is apparent: "Friendship is constant in all other things Save in the office and affairs of love: Therefore all hearts in love use their own tongues; Let every eye negotiate itself And trust no age ...
