The Creation of Israel Was a Mistake - Has there ever been a day where your home has just been taken from you. Life as a Jewish refugee in the Middle East was definitely a difficult thing during and after WWII because there was so much fighting between nations. The Jewish people just wanted a homeland so they could be free from persecution. The Arab people that were already living in the existing state of Palestine were extremely upset with the attempt to form the Jewish state of Israel; other countries that weren’t interested with the countries assisting the Jewish people used the Arab’s anger and resentment to their advantage....   [tags: Israel was a Mistake]

It is inspiring to think that we have learned from mistakes and may not repeat them.

Disguises and Mistaken Identity in Twelfth Night - Mistaken identity and disguise are important aspects of comedy in Twelfth Night that stand at the forefront of the play’s comedy. Not only are mistaken identities and disguise evident within the main plot of the play but also in various other situations. Sexual confusion amongst characters, subversion of gender roles and farcical elements through stagecraft all effectively contribute to the dramatic comedy genre. However, it can be suggested that certain elements of Twelfth Night are not interpreted to be purely comedic; Shakespeare has incorporated serious and controversial subjects such as the idea of genuine love, the patriarchy of the time and the cruel gulling of Malvolio....   [tags: literary analysis, disguise, shakespeare]

Mistaken Identities in The Taming of the Shrew - Mistaken Identities in The Taming of the Shrew     Throughout the play "The Taming of the Shrew," William Shakespeare has utilized several ingenious techniques resulting in an effective piece of work.  One of the more unique and creative methods is the use of mistaken identity.  With the use of mistaken identity, Shakespeare has successfully given the play an element of humor from the beginning to the end.   The mistaken identity within the two induction scenes must have been quite humorous for the upper-class noblemen who watched the play.  In Shakespeare's time, the upper-class often found their amusement in the poorer, more unfortunate lower-class.  Christopher Sl...   [tags: Taming Shrew Essays]

Comparing Mistaken Identity in Merchant of Venice, Comedy Errors, Twelfth Night and As You Like It - Mistaken Identity in Merchant of Venice, Comedy of Errors, Twelfth Night and As You Like It   The ploy of mistaken identity as a plot device in writing comedies dates back at least to the times of the Greeks and Romans in the writings of Menander and Plautus. Shakespeare borrowed the device they introduced and developed it into a fine art as a means of expressing theme as well as furthering comic relief in his works. Shakespeare's artistic development is clearly shown in the four comedies The Merchant of Venice, As You Like It, Twelfth Night, and Measure for Measure where he manages to take the germinal idea of mistaken identity and expand it to peaks its originators never fathomed....   [tags: comparison compare contrast essays] 1103 words
