Friedrich Durrenmatt's The Visit - Throughout the centuries doubles in literature create or intensify certain themes. In The Visit, doubles signify change and bring out the truth through dialogue, imagery, symbols, and characters. Characters function as doubles through dialogue, while symbols work to represent the characters. Settings enhance a character’s duality or employ them as doppelgangers.

Conformity and Convenience in Friedrich Durrenmatt’s The Visit - Friedrich Durrenmatt’s epic tragicomedy The Visit is a haunting commentary on the nature of mankind and morality.

The difference between right and wrong is often overlooked and even contorted in order to conform with convenience as the citizens of the town become more desperate. The Visit is both a philosophical masterpiece and a harrowing tale of conditional morality....   [tags: Friedrich Durrenmatt] 1508 words

Friedrich Durrenmatt’s Use of Allusions to Enhance the Plays Plot - In The Visit by Friedrich Durrenmatt, the use of allusions is very prevalent helping to compare the extent to what Durrenmatt is describing to its allusions. Durrenmatt’s implementation of allusions is used to offer a deeper understanding of the characterization, to compare the current town of Guellen to what it once was in order to explain why the town needs Claire’s money, and to show the irony of biblical ideas in order to show how Claire’s doings are as far from morally right as could be. Friedrich Durrenmatt's use of allusions in order to enhance and describe the characters include the famous Romeo and Juliet, Lais, and Lord Alfred Tennyson....   [tags: the visit, friedrich durrenmatt, allusions]

Comparing Ethics of Responsibility in The Visit and The Oresteia - The Visit and The Oresteia: Ethics of Responsibility       When Friedrich Durrenmatt wrote the play The Visit, he was doing so in response to what he saw as appalling neutrality on the part of the Swiss during World War II, neutrality that we now know was something more insidious.  This powerful play expresses what happens in a community where responsibility is abdicated and scapegoating is employed, what happens when mercy falls to vengeance in the name of justice.  It is a play designed to shock society into recognizing its own flaws and choosing a different course of action, a different way to be.  Today I would like to briefly describe how this play and its connections help...   [tags: comparison compare contrast essays]
