Much Ado about “Noting”

- In the play “Much Ado About Nothing” both the characters and their actions are concerned with “noting” or visually perceiving the other characters and the situations they find themselves in; ironically these perceptions are usually based on false or misinterpreted information.

Comparing Forgiveness and Marriage in Much Ado, All's Well, and Measure for Measure

- Forgiveness and Marriage in Much Ado about Nothing, All's Well That Ends Well, and Measure for Measure      Shakespeare never does manage to make the journey to the end of his comic plays an easy one for his characters or his audience, and as his comedies evolve, the journey becomes even more difficult. Tragic elements and more psychologically complex characters increase the intensity of the ending and often make a reader or viewer question if there will be a happy ending at all. Specific male characters in three plays act as impediments to this comic ending, often prompted by a villainous character and sometimes by their own doing....   [tags: comparison compare contrast essays]

Not Noting Women

- Seventeenth-century culture was, undoubtedly, a culture made for men: women, who were considered the weaker of the two sexes, were subjected to their fathers’ wills prior to being married, and subjected to their husbands’ wills forever afterward. Other than remaining faithful to the man to whom she was bound at the time, a Renaissance woman would have had only one other responsibility—that is, maintaining and upholding the honor of the family, which, as it happens, includes remaining faithful. That being said, if a woman were to be found unfaithful to her future husband, the repercussions of such a sin would be tremendous not only to the sinner, but to those with whom she associated herself...   [tags: gender, roles, equality, history, society]
