The Globe Theatre - The Globe Theatre The Globe Theatre is probably the most important structure in Shakespeare's dramatic career. The Chamberlain's Company built it in 1599, and it stood on the Southern shore of the Thames River in London. At this time Shakespeare was a member of the Chamberlain's Company, and therefore he became a shareholder in the theatre. The profits actors made off of their shares were their main means of support, as it was for Shakespeare. The Globe was just one of many theatres built in London around this time....   [tags: Papers] 507 words

Globe Theater - II. Structure of the Globe The theater that Cuthbert Burbage built for the Chamberlain's Men had a total capacity of between 2,000 and 3,000 spectators.

Because most of the Globe and all of its stage was open air, acoustics were poor and the actors were compelled by circumstances to shout their lines, stress their enunciation, and engage in exaggerated theatrical gestures....   [tags: essays research papers] 1093 words

William Shakespeare's Globe Theatre - Shakespeare's Globe Theatre        The Globe Theater, an entertainment outlet for all people of that time, provided a place for Shakespeare's plays to be performed.  It was the third and most famous playhouse in London.  When it was built, it was one of the most important playhouses in London.  The Globe's architecture was intriguing for its time and its life was long and prosperous. The Globe was built by two brothers, Cuthbert and Richard Burbage.  They had inherited the Globe's predecessor, The Theatre, from their father, James Burbage (Williams 365).  Fearing their lease would run out, the brothers dismantled it and carried the materials to Bankside, where the Swan and Rose already stood (Britanica).  It was built using timber from the Theatre following a quarrel with Giles Allen, owner of the land (Miller-Schutz 21).  The Globe provided a third amphitheatre south of the Thames River in London.  It was the fourth or fifth playhouse in London (Westerhof)....   [tags: Biography Biographies Essays]

Shakespearean Theater - Shakespeare was fortunate to begin his career in the late 1500s, when English theater was going through major changes. Professional actors had been performing in England for centuries. Called "Players," they traveled from town to town, setting up makeshift stages in public halls, marketplaces, and the courtyards of inns. Often they met hostility from local authorities, who believed that crowds of playgoers were a magnet for crime and also contributed to the spread of disease.

The Spherical Image as the Central Paradox in Valediction: for Weeping - The Spherical Image as the Central Paradox in Valediction: for Weeping   In John Donne's "A Valediction: for Weeping," the speaker consoles his lover before leaving on a sea voyage and begs her not to cry.  Crying, the speaker tells his lover this poem at the docks before he boards his ship going abroad.  Donne uses a spherical image as the central metaphor in his poem. When Donne uses irony, paradox, and hyperbole including the use of round images such as: coins, globes, and tears he strengthens the spherical conceit.  By comparing two "seeming" opposites like tears and love as his conceit, Donne uses the spherical image as the central paradox in "A Valediction: Of Weeping."         Donne opens the poem with the speaker crying while talking to his lover before his departure abroad.  His first spherical images are in the first stanza,  and they are tears and coins:             "Let me pour forth      My tears before thy face whilst I stay here,      For thy face coins them, and thy stamp they bear,      And by this mintage they are something worth," (1-4)   Both the coins and his tears have "worth," literal and figurative values respectively.  His tears fall from his face because he hurts for leaving, something no amount of coins can pay to alleviate....   [tags: Valediction for Weeping Essays] 1086 words
