Comparing Shakespeare' Julius Caesar, Ibsen's A Doll's House, and Miller's Death of a Salesman - Tragedy's Problem From Shakespeare' Julius Caesar to Henrik Ibsen's A Dolls House, problem plays have taken form in character, plot, and even setting.  It is not necessary for a problem play to be considered a problem play just because it was not written in the time period of when problem plays were formed.  Arthur Miller disproves this theory and successfully wrote a problem play in the modern time period; his play was Death of a Salesman.   The timely struggles that characters such as Willy Loman face, eventually lead to a major personal problem that, in this case, leads to death.  Problem plays deal directly with social and professional issues.  Death of a Salesman is a prime example o...   [tags: comparison compare contrast essays] 1138 words

Is Marcus Brutus An Honorable Man? - In deciding whether or not a person is good, all of their characteristics must be looked at. That person might look good on the outside, but if their heart is exposed they may not look as perfect as thought. In Shakespeare&#8217;s Julius Caesar, Brutus is a perfect example of this idea. He is sympathetic, kind, and generous, but when his motives are questioned, he does not look so sensitive. Brutus is not an honorable man. Brutus was a very selfish and self-centered person. He continually ignored Cassius&#8217; and the conspirators&#8217; ideas....   [tags: Julius Caesar Essays] 521 words

William Golding's "Lord of the Flies": Similar to Shakespeare's Julius Caesar - Author William Golding uses Lord of the Flies to paint a picture of the internal evil of man through a variety of different mechanisms. Ralph, while being one of the most civilized boys on the island, still shows characteristics that would indicate an inherent evil. Henry also displays a darker personality, even as he practices innocent childhood activities in the sand. The island on which the story takes place holds evidence that man possesses inherent evil, seen in the way the boys corrupt and destroy the innocence and purity of the tropical oasis, and viewed in the symbolic manner in which the island's pristine exterior shields a darker inside....   [tags: William Golding, Lord of the Flies, ] 1938 words

Caesarean Change - The reason why society advances is because of the innovations put forth by innovators. Therefore, it can be said that innovators are the reason why society advances. Bertrand Russell highlights three reasons why society is reluctant to the changes put forth by innovators.

Roman Coinage - As distinct historical documents, Ancient Roman coins undeniably provide key insights into the culture and government of the time.

Perhaps this statement is in a way true, but when buying into the tradition of this romance many disreputable elements of the affair are often overlooked.
