A Room Of One’s Own by Virginia Woolf - ... These situations prompted Woolf to make a conclusion on why a woman needs a private space of her own. The grass at Oxbridge and the fortress-like library depict the barriers between the two genders in the fictional world. However, in the modern reality, the World Wide Web is open for everyone’s usage. Such innovations as blogs and social networks endow the access for women to engage in the literary field without the adversities past counterparts have experienced. Unlike Virginia Woolf’s original idea of “a room of one’s own with a lock”, the World Wide Web provides an open atmosphere in which everyone can participate without considering the social norms....   [tags: A Room Of One’s Own] 835 words

Filmed Shakespeare - Possibly nothing is more fun than filmed Shakespeare, because few things offer as many paths for reflection. Shakespeare himself invented the reflective human in the first place, and the play itself has power. But anyone looking for this power doesn't go to the movies, they read the play. There's just too much engagement and too many levels to appreciate without the magical space that reading creates. You do not get more dark or tragic than "Othello" and this movie captures the play fairly well, with outstanding performances by Lawrence Fishburne and Irene Jacob....   [tags: essays research papers] 343 words

Othello: the Moral and the Immoral - Othello: the Moral and the Immoral         William Shakespeare’s tragic play Othello presents a full range of both moral and immoral activities through Iago, Desdemona, Othello, Bianca, Cassio, etc.   The moral and immoral dimension of Othello, especially the latter, is enhanced simply by its location in Italy. Louis B. Wright and Virginia A. LaMar in “The Engaging Qualities of Othello” comment on how the exotic setting of this play satisfied the Elizabethan dramatist’s dream of portraying evil:   Elizabethan dramatists were fond of portraying characters of consummate evil, and if they could lay the scenes in Italy, all the better, because the literature and legend of the day were filled with stories of the wickedness of Italy....   [tags: Othello essays]
