Processing a Crime Scene

- There are several steps that need to be taken in order to process a crime scene. Some of the steps include: securing the scene, a detailed search, documenting the crime scene, collecting and preserving evidence, and finally releasing the scene. All of the following steps are crucial to avoid any possible contamination or otherwise compromise the scene before it can be released. Few, if any additional opportunities exist when processing a crime scene, so the first time is most pertinent. First responders play a crucial role in the establishment of a crime scene....   [tags: Crime Scene Investigation]

Dramatic Scene Illustrated in Shakespeare's King Lear - Storm Scene

- Shakespeare’s King Lear offers its audience an impossible number of dramatic and memorable scenes, but I have chosen the storm scenes in Act III Scenes 1, 2 and 4 as my key dramatic scenes. The storm provides a dramatic centre to the play. It is used to bring about change, to represent Lear’s inner unrest, to symbolise the power of nature and to expose the play’s characters under the intolerant conditions of thunder and lightning. The scenes in which the storm takes place are very different to those which precede and follow them....   [tags: literary techniques, scene analysis]

Word and Deed in Hamlet’s Death Scene

- The very act of engaging with fiction necessitates recognizing the possibilities and the limits of words. The audience of, for example, Hamlet obviously recognizes that the aim of words is not always to accurately describe reality. Yet, this recognition brings along with it a frightening realization: even when one tries, it is next to impossible to use words to accurately describe reality. In his 1951 article The Word In Hamlet, John Paterson argues that this crisis alarms Hamlet because of its relation to the greater chasm between appearance and substance; and that the crisis is ultimately solved by a reunion of word and deed in the play’s end....   [tags: hamlet, john paterson, death scene]
