He speaks in a conversational style and he tells the story in a series of flashbacks and he is in control of the play. He immediately creates the atmosphere – where crime was once set in that very neighborhood. Alfieri has a mysterious role and Miller uses him as a crucial link between the characters he is also used as a narrator, commentator and sometimes a character. He talks about it being ‘better to settle for half’ and how he likes that better as, the search for absolute justice results in intolerable consequences as well as, being virtually impossible. Giving details on how the law is limited and cannot deal with every human problem he explains the boundaries to both Marco and Eddie, knowing in his heart they will probably ignore what he has said, however, he cannot take further action to avoid the conflict.
Plays are a unique form of entertainment and literature, for they typically include scenes in which characters acknowledge and address the audience directly through various monologues and soliloquies. This adds an extra interactive layer of involvement where the audience can influence a character’s decisions. For instance, in Shakespeare’s Othello, the main character, a wily young man ironically dubbed “honest” Iago stops to tell the audience about his true intentions just as often as he tries to undermine other characters. Naturally, Iago would need some release from his deceitful planning. Therefore, the audience, by silently abiding through Iago’s speeches, must be his sidekicks – albeit unwillingly – the only people Iago trusts and feels
He also uses the theme of cycles that are easily understood and often relatable, the first being daily life, the second being love and marriage, and death to create a connection for the audience. He also uses tool such as a Stage Manager to clearly present those ideas while at the same time allowing a connection between the audience and the play. The stage manager is also a character without bounds and so Wilder takes advantage of that by allowing the use of flashbacks to clarify ideas. With these tools Wilder has the ability to allow the audience to understand a clear message and appreciate life. Let us begin with the opening of the play, Wilder uses great detail in the beginning to have the audience understand this is more than a play.
Alfieri is well dressed in a suit and is very well mannered. It is extremely important that the audience likes and trusts Alfieri if he is to influence the audience’s views of Eddie during the play. This is why Alfieri is dressed smartly and looks experienced right at the beginning of the play. He speaks directly to the audience in an approachable and friendly way using the personal pronoun “you” which shows that he is trying to build a rapport with the audience right from the start of the play. Alfieri is articulate a... ... middle of paper ... ...e is an element of contradiction to Alfieri’s final words because he believes that it is wise to compromise and yet he loves Eddie who refused to.
He wants everyone to that, it's very easy to not be very discriminated by the way you look but the way your skin color. Mr. King is very descriptive of his words and his meaning for them. He can really make the world change if everyone really did follow. King's reason for the speech is because he is trying to make a difference, he is a very good well taught speaker and he speaks with so much enthusiasm and nothing could really stop him from anything he's doing. His argument is very reasoning to his defence and he eats so many reason to why the work works in its evil ways of discrimination.
in addition Shakespeare uses Iambic Pentameter: this is where each line has a series of stressed and unstressed syllables making an alternate pattern: he used this so the phrases were easier to learn for his actors. Additionally it introduced key themes of the play to the audience and in effect provides a brief summery of the play. Some of the key themes introduced in the prologue included: conflict and violence, it is put into context using different quotes like ‘From ancient grudge break to new mutiny.’ This quote basically means an old rivalry between two families is turning out to be a gory clash of pride. We also know the families are quite high in distinction and probably have links with royalty; ‘Two households, both alike in dignity’, therefore it adds to the rivalry. Because ‘Romeo and Juliet’ is a tragedy, evidently the violence is a
He writes about deception as it is what he saw around him and also because it holds his audience’s attention especially when the audience know a character in the play is deceiving another but the other character is not aware of this. Therefore, through deception Shakespeare brings his audience into the play itself and maintains their interest. They would have greatly appreciated being involved in the deceits and lies and would have been familiar, from life around them, with the concept of deception and enjoyed it. The line “All that glistens is not gold” has survived over 400 years and is used today to warn that outward appearances may mask what is on the inside and this is the message of Shakespeare’s play. Whether Shakespeare was using deception to put across such a message or just to entertain his audience or both, the use of deception gives the play an intriguing plot, with heroes and villains and a theme which his Elizabethan audience could easily relate to.
The features attracts the modern audience by black comedy, making them use their imagination, relate to the characters by irritating them, the play keeps the audience alert to notice techniques, and makes them tense and relax over and over again. The fact that most important events occur off-stage forces them to imagine which gives a greater impression then of the actors trying to act it. It also gives a more individual interpretation of the play.
With so many plots and characters the audience can’t look away without later on not understanding something. Perhaps this is part of the reason why Shakespeare makes his first scenes so important. Introducing almost every character in the play, including fighting scenes and important speeches and also some humour helps keep the vast variety of audience amused and entertained.
For an examination of a minimally discussed motif prior to the article, Bloom presents his opinion in a very clear, organized manner and connects with the audience a couple of times, unlike most critics.

Overall, Bloom’s piece is valid and explains his points well. Even though one setback in his examination is slightly detrimental, he acknowledges many more of his faults and works with them to actually assist his writing.
