The Foolishness in Shakespeare's Twelfth Night - The Foolishness in Shakespeare's Twelfth Night      William Shakespeare used a unique device to explain how foolishness is an unavoidable part of everyday life.  He employed many specific examples of foolishness in his comedy titled Twelfth Night.  Each of the characters he created were all foolish in one way or another.  Not only do the characters entertain the audience, but also educate the audience as they portray mankind avoiding obvious truth.        Shakespeare takes a humorous approach to expose the ways we fall prey to pride, vanity and self-deception.  As the story unfolds, the characters discover their faults before they can do any real harm to themselves or anyone else.  Fortunately, only embarrassment or humiliation are the result....   [tags: Twelfth Night essays]

It is a tiny book, one hundred pages at the most with a lot of dialogue and short choppy sentences. But in this memoir, Wiesel strings along the events that took him through the Holocaust until they form one of the most riveting, shocking, and grimly realistic tales ever told of history’s most famous horror story. In Night, Wiesel reveals the intense impact that concentration camps had on his life, not through grisly details but in correlation with his lost faith in God and the human conscience....   [tags: Eliezer Wiesel Night Essays]

This distinction between the physical flesh and the face, the "devil mask" is for Ambler a crucial metaphor of "duplicity" (269). It is "a screen to hide [the] mind's nakedness...though they understand instinctively that the mask cannot be the man behind it; they are generally shocked by a demonstration of the fact" (269)....   [tags: Journey into Fear Essays]

Essay on Shakespeare's Sources for A Midsummer Night's Dream - Shakespeare's Sources for A Midsummer Night's Dream     A Midsummer Night's Dream is one of Shakespeare's most-performed plays: a delightful comedy, but full of enough potential tragedy to avoid becoming saccharine.

The entertainments Philostrate proposes, all stories taken from Ovid's Metamorphoses, show the unhappy endings all too likely to spring from tales like that of the four lovers of Shakespeare's play, or the strife-torn fairy rulers....   [tags: Midsummer Night's Dream] 775 words
