Tragically Inane: The Cherry Orchard And Six Characters - The deconstruction of the conventions of the theatre in Anton Chekhov's The Cherry Orchard predicts the more radical obliteration presented later by Pirandello in Six Characters in Search of an Author. The seed of this attack on convention by Chekhov are the inherent flaws of all the characters in The Cherry Orchard. The lack of any character with which to identify or understand creates a portrait much closer to reality than the staged drama of Ibsen or other playwrights who came before. In recognizing the intrinsic flaws of its characters, we can see how Chekhov shows us that reality is subjective, reality is not simple, linear, or clean, and that the real benefit of theater is to show thi...   [tags: essays research papers] 1972 words

Fate and Free Will in Literature - ... The big picture is that despite all these books being written in different eras with different ideals, they all have that same ambivalence about fate and freewill. And even now, that ambivalence remains. People are unsure of whether we have freewill, or all of our actions are part of a predetermined plan. So, why is it that throughout history and the present, the debate between fate and freewill remains. Predetermined fate is a hard thing to believe in because everyone has a different view on life....   [tags: oedipus rex, candide, macbeth] 758 words

Sexual Education: Teenage Pregnancy a Global View by Andrew Cherry - “Out of sight, out of mind” seems to be the philosophy of most schools when the topic of sex is brought up. Teen pregnancy is becoming more and more common across the United States. In Andrew Cherry’s book, Teenage Pregnancy a Global View, he states “the United States has one of the highest rates of teenage pregnancy”. I believe it could help be prevented by revising the sexual education classes taught in late elementary school, middle school, and high school, if taught anything at all. As I recall throughout my years of schooling all I had been taught was how my body worked and what could happen if I had “sex”, a term so foreign to me I honestly didn’t know what it meant....   [tags: out of sight, out of mind, sex]

Considered "minor" poems, very little has been written on either. Of "A Sea-Spell," some have gone so far as to proclaim "it is kinder to the memory of the artist to say nothing.

The Influence of Chekhov and Ibsen on Singapore Theatre - Singapore theatre is greatly influenced by the theatre of Anton Chekhov and Henrik Ibsen, especially in regard to the purpose of the play.

Social order was one of the main concerns of Symbolists and Realists, which reflects the unprecedented growth of the middle class and its values across Europe during that time period. Morality and ambition were homogenized – and, in some cases, institutionalized – to a degree never before seen in civilized society, and many intellectuals and artists saw this homogenization as a conformist social force that threatened individual perspective....   [tags: Symbolism Realism Literature Essays] 1261 words
