Hamlet does not like Rosencrantz and Guildenstern since they are servants of the Claudius, Hamlet's mortal enemy. The reader does not like Rosencrantz and Guildenstern either which causes the reader to side with Hamlet. Another incident of Hamlet's high intelligence is shown when he Hamlet tells Rosencrantz and Guildenstern, "I am glad of it: a knavish sleeps in a foolish ear" (IV, i, 24-25). This statement leaves Rosencrantz and Guildenstern more or less confused. Hamlet is clearly more clever than the two of them combined and is able to toy with them.
However, it can also show the level of contempt that Benedick has for Beatrice. Also, their ability to extend the metaphor and almost predict the next insult is a factor of their conversations that continue throughout the play. Their ability to maintain such intelligent sparring is witness to the strong bond that they share. During the masked ball scene, when Benedick doesn’t say who he is, Beatrice starts a rant about how annoying Benedick is- “He is the Prince’s jester... ... middle of paper ... ...ngly, when she is not in the presence of her father, Leonato, who has immense control over her life. I agree with the view that Beatrice and Benedick’s relationship is of more dramatic interest for audiences to a certain extent.
The boy’s message to Vladimir may have provided the readers with the conclusion that the entire play was senseless because Vladimir and Estragon never had the opportunity to meet Godot. After all, it only makes sense for a play called Waiting for Godot to end with Vladimir and Estragon ending their long wait for this man named Godot. Moreover, the fact that Vladimir and Estragon must still wait for Godot, puts their lives into question. If Vladimir and Estragon are spending their lives waiting for a man that they do not directly speak to or know if he will truly meet them, is there a... ... middle of paper ... ...he thoughts of suicide, confirmation of Godot’s canceled meeting, and the seemingly hapless state of Vladimir and Godot in the final line of the play all contribute to deliver a message about human life. As I have shown, Beckett successfully displayed why the human life is a concept that is plagued by a lack of meaning and a state of murkiness.

Therefore what modern day audiences would think of as humorous in the play, the 1912/4 audience wouldn't have thought so, and vice versa. For example the audience in 1912/4 wouldn't have found the restricted conversation at Mrs Higgins' 'At Home day' amusing, whilst we, as a modern day audience, do find it amusing as we are not used to this way of life and the different sorts of etiquette. Although the themes such as the social class system are not as defined in modern day society however certain accents are still discriminated against, in today's society, and Received Pronunciation is still seen as the preferred way and the educated way of speaking.
That is until his friend leaves after he thinks Philip has ruined all of his chances. Once they have some time alone Philip turns on the charm and gets right on to as... ... middle of paper ... ... Norah was so smart and just wanted what was best for Philip. She was usually soft spoken but had a very loud laugh. She often made very noticable facial features when people would talk to her while using hand gestures and other body movements. In my opinion the most effective character was Mildred because she had the most impact on the story and most of all Philip.
It brought big changes to him. He took a play audition and acted main character of A Midsummer’s Night Dream. However, his father did not allow him to do what he wanted. Another student, Todd attended Balincrest before Welton to get a high score. He was also pressured by his parents and he was very listless and tentative student before meeting Keating.
By having a frustrated character, he is able to merge humour into Sam’s frustration: “It seems to me that if you never wear a condom, then you should get triplets or quintuplets” (Hornby, Slam 62). Hornby uses understatement and humour Squires 2 to emphasize the point and make the reader realize the problem but make it as funny as possible. This issue leads to others in Sam’s life. Sam started to realize how scared he ... ... middle of paper ... ...t attracts the reader. His writing style is easily understandable and is not meant to preach, but to teach.

In an average day, distractions do appear in my thoughts, and Arthur Miller really did a good job of showing these random transitions. The story is also real in that the family frequently explodes on each other. I am not too enthralled by the play, only because it is not the kind of story I really adhere to, but I would certainly recommend it to anyone interested.
Dorothy often got fired for offending clients, however, she was a large part in changing the "humorless and prudish" reputation that women had (Beilke). She developed a reputation for witty and out of the ordinary writing. She won the O. Henry Memorial Award for her short story, “Big Blonde” ("Parker, Dorothy"). Dorothy Parker participated in the elite group, the Algonquin Round Table, where talented writers, editors, and actors -mostly men- would lunch and trade witticisms and make each other laugh (Grant). Things weren’t always great for Ms. Parker; she often had a hard time reaching deadlines due to her heavy drinking and writing anxiety which caused her work to be sporadic and unreliable (Bloom).
