“The Spring and the Fall” is written by Edna St. Vincent Millay. The poem is about two people, the poet and her significant other that she once had love for. The poem integrates the use of spring and fall to show how the poet stresses her relationship. Of course it starts off briefly by having a happy beginning of love, but the relationship soon took a shift for the worst, and there was foreshadow that there would be an unhappy ending. “I walked the road beside my dear.
He has a vision of how life is supposed to be, and feels rewarded when he conforms to a stereotype. For example, he says RI knew this little flower was waiting for me to call, and, as I wickedly refused to do so, I felt the first time that rush of power -- the absolute power of a man.... ... middle of paper ... ... creation necessary to construct the story of the play while the movie simply feeds the audience with information. In conclusion, the audienceUs perception of Rene Gallimard is much different in the play M Butterfly than in the movie of the same title. Although David Henry Hwang wrote both the play and the screenplay, the character development is far greater in the play. The reader must create a picture of Gallimard by his impressions, reactions, and interactions with characters from his past that simply do not exist in the movie.
I have found four of these works and will use them as sources throughout this essay. The first source is “The Case of Hamlet’s Conscience,” by Catherine Belsey, and it focuses on the topic of Hamlet’s revenge in the play. The second source is “’Never Doubt I Love’: Misreading Hamlet,” by Imtiaz Habib, and it explains a lot of information about Hamlet’s “love” for Ophelia. The third source is “Shakespeare’s Hamlet, III.i.56—88,” by Horst Breuer, and it talks in depth about the issue of suicide in Hamlet. The fourth and final source is “Shakespeare’s Hamlet 1.2.35-38,” by Kathryn Walls, and it describes the significance of the role the Ghost plays throughout Hamlet.
Karen Pastrano CBIL 1080-1085, Writing about Drama In order to write about drama we need to consider important elements. We must analyze the language of the stage directions, the setting, exposition, dialogue, plot, and other elements of drama since they serve to produce effects and meanings. Dramatic elements can enhance an imaginative re-creation of a performance. Meyer says that writing about a play “gauges our own interpretative response as an audience member; the only difference is that instead of applauding we are typing”. By writing we can explore and discover dimensions of the play that we may not be able to perceive by only watching the performance.
I believe it is valuable-both pedagogically and theoretically-to ask broad questions about the aesthetic, narrative, and ideological exchanges between the history of theatre and contemporary film and television. For example, this paper will study how the "Chinese Restaurant" episode of the sitcom, Seinfeld, intertextually reworks Samuel Beckett's modernist play, Waiting for Godot. In each text, characters encounter an existential plight as they are forced to wait interminably, and thus confront their powerlessness at the hands of larger social forces. As a pedagogical matter, this connection encourages the students to see academic culture in the guise of having to read Beckett's play for my course, not as foreign and alienating, but instead as continuous with their understanding of leisure activities like watching sitcoms. As a theoretical matter, this intertextual connection allows important ideological matters to come into bold relie... ... middle of paper ... ...ng it in light of Godot, we can appreciate something much more fundamental, that Seinfeld is every bit as humanitarian as Godot because it shows how our human frailties militate against our desire to end all human contact with others.
Methodology =========== The first step I took was to read the Harry Potter chamber of secrets novel and watch the film to decide which chapter I would investigate. I then decided to investigate Chapter two because it was my favourite scene in the film and novel and it had a lot of dialogue. I then made a transcript for the film and began my investigation.

As we have seen through my analysis of this novel, the ideals of Lacanian psychoanalysis can be applied to situations found throughout the novel in order to interpret the actions of the main character. We have seen that Goldmund has developed through the different phases of development set forth by Lacan in his work. We also have identified that the ‘desire’ of the main character is to meet his mother, while his ‘signifiers’ are the many women that he has brief relationships with. From this interpretation of Goldmund and his desire, you can see that Lacanian psychoanalysis is an effective and exceptionally useful way to approach critically examining literature.
It entails a lot of understanding of concepts related to power, dominance, how they are misused and consequently, result in social inequality. Moreover, it is a multidisciplinary field and requires a detailed insight of text, talk, society, power, thoughts and cultures. For this reason, I plan to conduct a thorough analysis of the first book from the Hunger Games trilogy; i.e. : The Hunger Games (Collins, 2008). I gave an overview of the trilogy in the Introduction, so that the readers do not have any difficulty, whatsoever, in understanding the story and its development.
The two seem to swap roles because Frank used to tell Rita things and she would try and understand it, but the return from summer school shows that she has memorised Blake poetry and has significantly changed. Rita is driven by the need for education, having realised that life has more to offer then her ordinary existence in the hairdressing salon. Rita says to Frank that b... ... middle of paper ... ...that there is only one thing for her to do to thank him so he sits down and the audience gets the impression of something sexual about to happen but Rita gets a pair of scissors and begins to cut Franks hair. In this scene the dramatic device used is one for humour. Educating Rita is mainly about a character trying to find the right words to express herself, and as she becomes more educated Rita learns to adapt her language to different audiences.
Each flower has meaning and if given to the right person, this scene shows that Ophelia is too aware to be truly mad. Laertes even makes the comment, “This nothing’s more than matter” (4.5.169); that her speech seems like nothing, but it is actually quite moving and revealing. Rosemary, for remembrance, may be intended for King Hamlet, as they should not forget about his death. They may also be intended for Laertes, as he is the last to speak before Ophelia. Pansies, for thought, are given to Hamlet because he is a thinker, not an actor.
