Abuses of Power in I Only Came To Use The Phone, and Lord Of The Flies

This film exemplifies the restraint the women have even with the most diligent suitors, similar to Maria’s defiant actions in John Fletcher’s comedy, “The Tamer Tamed.” Maria was adamant that she would not adhere to the deman...   [tags: feminism, equality, The Tamer Tamed]

- When compared to Shakespeare’s other comedies, ‘Twelfth Night’ can be said to be the darkest. As the last of his comedies, it fits that ‘Twelfth Night’ would be progressively darker, ending not on a note of true happiness but rather one of melancholy that strives to emphasize that “that’s all one” and therefore insignificant. Though it fits comic tradition with slapstick humour, unrequited courtly love, confusion, potential for tragedy but ultimately a happy ending, ‘Twelfth Night’ is prevailingly dark, showing the flaws in a society living for pleasure and determined to indulge in ‘cakes and ale’....   [tags: Victorian, renaming, plays, malvolio, twelfth nigh]
