The stage and acting areas were also mcuh different than in theatres today. The most important feature of the Elizabethan stage was that it was a thrust stage.

Roman Fever and John Steinbeck's The Chrysanthemums - "Roman Fever" and "The Chrysanthemums"  - A Comparison         The two short stories have different characters, plot and setting and yet they have a common ground in which human beings are deeply involved.  In short, the setting of each work powerfully suggests a rather calm, dull and peaceful mood at a superficial level; however, the main characters are struggling from the uncontrollable passions and exploding desire at heart.  First of all, in "The Chrysanthemums" the Salinas Valley is depicted as somewhat dull, like "a closed pot."  In addition, its geographical setting represents an isolated atmosphere, and, furthermore, Elisa's actions of handling  chrysanthemums can be translated into a static, inactive one.  However, when it comes to her concealed passion, the whole picture in this piece can be interpreted in a different way.  In fact, Elisa is portrayed as "over-eager, over-powerful" in a sharp contrast to the unanimated space in which she lives.  On top of that, Elisa expresses her volition to explore uncharted worlds like the peddler who happens to visit her farm house....   [tags: compare, contrast] 316 words

Now the people who disagree have justified this by the way of writing and the use of words.

Trees by Joyce Kilmer - Trees by Joyce Kilmer "Trees" is a poem by Joyce Kilmer. After reading and analyzing the brief twelve lines of this poem we believe that it is a religious poem. Kilmer gives praising attributes to the tree as if it were praising God. This poem also explains that trees are lovelier than a poem because any fool can write a poem, but only God can create a tree. The poem "Trees" uses a literary device called a couplet. A couplet is two lines of poetry. Kilmer uses six different couplets. One example of couplet is in the first two lines: "I think that I shall never see/ A poem lovely as a tree." Most couplets are usually connected with rhyming end words....   [tags: Papers] 331 words

This demonstrates how important, and powerful, words are. But just how powerful are words. Words have been known to cause wars, or create peace. In fact, the words one chooses can mean the difference between anger and peace. Take for instance, the synonyms of "shut-up" and "be quiet." Though they both mean the same thing, "shut-up" has a much greater amount of hostility than "be quiet." Word choice is certainly an important factor in the English language....   [tags: Papers] 336 words

Anne Bradstreet's Poem, To My Dear and Loving Husband - Anne Bradstreet Anne Bradstreet lived in a time when devotion in a wife to her husband was a social law. This poem, “To My Dear and Loving Husband,” is a loving tribute from Bradstreet to her husband. Certainly, in the early American, Puritan colonies, this work would have been seen as a wife’s duty as well as a lovely gesture. Today, however, it might well be seen as the babblings of a dependant wife. This was my reaction to the poem when I first read it.

White Oleander - White Oleander: Book vs. Movie Like with most books that are made into movies, this was definitely a disappointment.

What is Sex? - What is Sex. What exactly is sex. Is sex as simple as a flea bite, as essential as a vegetable, or as precious as India's jewels. To some it may be a "uniting in the living walls of a flea" or "remaing in the walls of one's bedroom". Regardless of what sex is, time plays a significant role in the consecration of it.
