Sometimes when people are in love they tend to do things that they could not imagine. Their mind is so caught up on the person that they forget everything and focus on them. The love takes over their mind and they do the unthinkable. In Shakespeare’s play, Romeo and Juliet, Shakespeare shows love by introducing us to Romeo and Juliet who are star-crossed lovers. In the play, Shakespeare has messages, but one message that stands out is: Love is a crazy thing that can control ones mind and makes a person do things without thinking twice.
Romeo and Juliet - Foreshadowing Foreshadowing has been used throughout the ages of literature revealing horroriffic endings and scheming love, helping the reader from being to overly surprised by the outcomes. Many writers use this technique of writing utilizing its ability to add so much more meaning to a novel. As in the age of Elizabethans, directors and actors caged this skill exploiting it when ever thought necessary. In the play Romeo and Juliet, by William Shakespeare, Shakespeare utilizes foreshadowing to keep the audience from becoming to upset by the tragic outcome. He also uses it to display Romeo's and Juliet's enduring love for one another.
Shakespeare shows this type of love in a very interesting and confusing way as the characters were from the opposite side and so it made this type of love very unique and different. Shakespeare represents each type of love in a different way and by making each play distinctive and fascinating in its own way. My favourite type of love is unrequited love because I can link it to my life and also because I find it funny that you can like someone so much and not get it back. The message that Shakespeare is trying to give out is that all types of love has its miserable and joyful points and that love is never perfect. Shakespeare uses different story lines to make each type of love dramatic and amusing way.
Unlike his earlier comedies, Shakespeare looks at the concept of love and themes such as insanity and madness of love, which were not parts of the conv... ... middle of paper ... ...ods were not possible. From a dramatic viewpoint, I think that the two scenes analysed here are pivotal to the play and generally seem to achieve their objectives well. As well as identifying the main theme of the play of how complications of love often arise from disguises, which may hide one's true intentions, these scenes also provide the means of how these difficulties get resolved in the play. Although the atmosphere in the scenes is quite melancholic, the audience can clearly sense the potential for comedy. The title 'Twelfth Night' perhaps also relates to this, as there would have been some sorrow as it was the last day of the Christmas festivities.
His words and themes make the stories vivid and easily appealing to the imagination. He makes it so that you see the play act out in your mind. The use of settings, themes, and characters in the story both create the basis of the differences and similarities in his plays. The two stories that Shakespeare had written, incorporated a major theme – the love between each character and the rest of each plot. Within these stories Shakespeare shows the true nature of love and forgiveness – a never ending battle.
This has attracted a range of audiences, which come along with different expectations and different views. Audiences often like to watch presentations of scripts they already know. The play Romeo and Juliet introduces many key themes, such as love, friendship, betrayal and death. These are all points which focus on dramatic tension. This closely links with other Shakespeare's plays, particularly A Midsummer Nights Dream, the humour and theme of love is very much the same.
The comparisons drawn between Beatrice and Benedick's love and the superficial love of Hero and Claudio are typical of the constant contrasts that Shakespeare builds into this play, comical or otherwise. It is in this way that Shakespeare manages to cross-reference almost all of his characters with each other; ` the 'wise' Beatrice with the 'modest' Hero, the 'valiant' Benedick with 'Sir boy,' the young Claudio. This emphasises their strengths and highlights their weaknesses respectively. By this he makes them more interesting, and so more realistic, pointing out things about the society in which the play was written, and about human relationships as a whole. One of the topics Shakespeare is especially fond of is that of Love being a force for good in society, improving anyone who is infatuated with it.
Shakespeare has always found a way to make love as complicated as he can which leads me to believe that he feels that you must work for love and it should not be handed to you. Love is already complicated, but when Shakespeare is involved he makes sure at least two things come around that can make it harder for those who are in love to actually stay in love. Twelfth Night is a romantic comedy which leads to romantic love being the main focus of the play. In this play, Shakespeare shows that love can cause pain. He does this by causing a love triangle which includes; • Viola likes Duke but • Duke likes Olivia and • Olivia like Cesario who is actually Viola disguised as her twin brother.
“How Shakespeare Used Multiple Literary Strategies to introduce the complex sides of love” “Ay me! For aught that I could ever read, Could ever hear by tale or history, The course of true love never did run smooth; But either it was different in blood”( I.I.134-137). In the play, A “Midsummer’s Night Dream” author William Shakespeare outlines the theme, which is love. Shakespeare does this in using a comedic and innocuous tone to introduce love as a complex and sometimes problematic. Shakespeare does this by using four Literary Techniques: Symbolism, Setting, Imagery, and Allegory.
When working toward any goal, it is human nature to draw on the ideas of others; to consider the successes and failures of others to improve the chances of you succeeding. This is true in many different fields, but most frequently seen in literature. When writing new novels or plays, authors rely on the ideas and storylines of other pieces to give their piece more meaning or direction. This is no different from when William Shakespeare was writing his plays around the 1600’s. One of the more discernable examples of this is Shakespeare using the story of Pyramus and Thisbe when composing both Romeo and Juliet and A Midsummer’s Night Dream, which are a tragedy and a comedy, respectively.
