Ambiguity in Reason in Orlando Furioso - Ambiguity in Reason in Orlando Furioso   Ariosto addresses an underlying battle between reason and lust in Orlando Furioso, similar to the clash between duty and desires in Vergil’s Aeneid, yet opposite in interpretation. Vergil presents the message that duty overpowers desires, while Ariosto shows the opposite effect when he equates reason, rules, and authority with duty, and love, passion, and lust with desire. The "mettlesome charger" represents Lust that will not stop fighting to obtain its goals and cannot be gently coerced from its direction....   [tags: Orlando Furioso Essays]

Clothing and Gender in Virginia Woolf's Orlando - Clothing and Gender in Virginia Woolf's Orlando In her novel Orlando, Virginia Woolf tells the story of a man who one night mysteriously becomes a woman.

In doing this, we are invited to answer one of the fundamental questions of our lives, a question that we so often ignore because it seems so very basic - what is a man....   [tags: Virginia Woolf Orlando Essays]

Humor and Tragedy in Virginia Woolf's Orlando - Virginia Woolfe's "Orlando" uses both humor and tragedy to observe humanity's often absurd and eccentric superficial constructions, both of class and gender. Woolfe creates the distinctions between male and female but continuously shatters them to reveal the illusions we create about gender. As George Meredith suggests, comedy is created when "The comic poet dares to show us men and women coming to this mutual likeness" (15). Woolfe, however, goes beyond simply bringing men and women together as equals; she blends them together as one androgynous individual, the effect of which causes us to laugh at the artificial way in which society attempts to define gender....   [tags: Virginia Woolf Orlando Essays] 652 words

Orlando Furioso Clarifies Vergil’s Ending in The Aeneid - Orlando Furioso Clarifies Vergil’s Ending in The Aeneid       Ariosto adapts and transforms Vergil’s final episode of The Aeneid into his own conclusion in Orlando Furioso. The final scenes in the epics parallel one another in many ways, yet also show distinct differences. Ruggiero and Rodomont represent Aeneas and Turnus, respectively, and the actions of Ariosto’s characters can be interchanged with their corresponding characters’ acts in The Aeneid. Ariosto reminds us of controversy and questions that Vergil elicits in his conclusion and responds interpretively, reshaping the ending and clarifying ambiguities....   [tags: Orlando Furioso Essays]

Orlando by Virgina Woolf - ... The theory of personality traits, most commonly masculinity and femininity, are psychological tendencies. They characterize human nature as having a stable predisposition to behave in a relatively predictable manner. These traits are further modified to influence a being through the culturally defined patterns of expected behaviour (Robinson, and Green 248). Androgyny is a neologism, constructed from the Greek words for male (andro-) and female (-gyny), and can simply be defined as a unified blend of both masculine and feminine personality characteristics in a single body in which these traits can be expressed with unlimited flexibility (Buchanan; Robinson, and Green 252)....   [tags: literary analysis] 2034 words

Marketing The Orlando Magic - Marketing and advertising are not just a business, but are art forms as well. Marketing agencies use tactics and special methods in order to appeal to a specific demographic. For instance, a television channel aimed towards kids (such as Nickelodeon) would probably air commercials marketing toys, snacks, and other items that appeal to the primary viewer of that channel (kids). As a die-hard sports fan, I find marketing aimed towards me all the time.

Virginia Woolf’s Orlando - Virginia Woolf’s Orlando Born in the late nineteenth century, Virginia Woolf’s visionary mind emerged in a social climate that did not cultivate the intellectual development of women. In England’s waning Victorian era, the upper classes of women were encouraged to become nothing more than obedient wives, self-effacing mothers, servile hostesses, and cheerful, chattering tea-drinkers, expectations that Virginia Woolf shunned, renounced, and ultimately denounced in her writings. Beside being born into a patriarchal culture, Virginia Woolf was also born into a family headed by a man who made it clear that he "expected more from his sons than his daughters" (Bazin 4)....   [tags: Literary]

Shakespeare's As You Like It - The Many Flavors of Love - As You Like It:   The Many Flavors of Love         As You Like It is remarkable among Shakespeare's plays for ending with four marriages, something of a record even among comedies. Love is a central theme of the play, although in some of its variations it cannot quite be said to be romantic. The love relationships may, at first glance, appear to be stock types: Rosalind and Orlando representing romantic hero-heroine love, Silvius and Phebe combining love in the lower classes with unrequited love, Audrey and Touchstone a darker attempt to seduce, and Celia and Oliver simple tying up of loose ends....   [tags: Shakespeare As You Like It Essays] 1465 words

Textual Dynamics: What Context Enables the Audience to See - “disconnection occurs, the voice loses its origin, and the author enters into his own death.” Textual dynamics employs the ideas of Roland Barthes to convey messages to the audience that the words are not able to. The audiences view of texts have not been moulded by what the author would like to be seen but rather what context enables them to see. These properties are observed in all texts but can be seen largely in Sally Potter’s 1992 film “Orlando” which is able to deconstruct reality and common perceptions....   [tags: Textual dynamics, audience,] 727 words

Comparing Rosalynde and As You Like It - Thomas Lodge's Rosalynde is an unwieldy piece, the romance is thick, heavy, and conventional. Yet when Shakespeare took it in hand, to rework the tangled web of disguise and romance into As You Like It, he changed much of the emphasis, by both altering and adding characters. Rosalynde is a celebration of love; As You Like It, a philosophical discourse on love.. Shakespeare cuts to the chase, eliminating much of the prologue to Rosalynde. We hear of old Sir Roland de Boys (Lodge's John of Bordeaux) only through Orlando's opening speech, not the extended deathbed collection of aphorisms Lodge provides (though this shade of Polonius perhaps influences old Adam's long-winded style)....   [tags: comparison compare contrast essays] 745 words
