The Power of Shakespeare's The Winter's Tale

- The Power of The Winter's Tale        Many of Shakespeare's later plays broke with customs of genre. The Merchant of Venice has all the elements of a comedy, but deals with very grave matters and ends ambiguously. Pericles foreshadows the novel in its romantic plot and use of narration. Such plays challenged prevalent Renaissance literary theory which demanded fairly strict adherence to classical values of realism and unity. The Winter's Tale is a self-conscious violation of these expectations, and a jibe at the assumptions behind them....   [tags: Shakespeare Winter's Tale Essays]

Shakespeare's The Winter's Tale

- The Characters of Hermione, Perdita, and Paulina in The Winters Tale Although Hermione is one of the main characters, we see very little of her in the play. She is horribly betrayed by her husband, but we never really see her feelings on the subject. In many other plays, Shakespeare uses asides and soliloquies to give insight into the characters mind. Hermione must be having complex and very troubling thoughts, but we never see them. Hermione is in Act I Scene ii where she plays the perfect royal hostess....   [tags: Shakespeare Winter's Tale Essays]

- A Winter Snow When I think back upon the memories of my childhood, I clearly recall a specific winter afternoon at my grandmother’s house. It is an especially cold day, I remember. I am dressed in two pairs of thick socks, two sweatshirts, a heavy winter coat, and my bright pink rain boots. I am nine years old, and to me, winter snow is pure magic. As I step out onto my grandmother’s back porch, I remember losing my breath, not only from the bitter cold, but also from the captivating scene. I am immediately taken aback by the view....   [tags: Personal Experience, Autobiography]

Comparing Daystar and Those Winter Sundays

- The two poems I have chosen to analyze are Daystar by Rita Dove and Those Winter Sundays by Robert Hayden. The poem Daystar struck me from my first reading of it because I do the same thing this woman did sometimes. The apartment I share with my husband has a balcony where I have planted some flowers, and sometimes when the whether is nice I drag a rocking chair out there into the sun and just sit and let my thoughts wander. This poem reminds me of those moments. The author uses imagery in the poem to make the experience of this one woman stand out vividly....   [tags: comparison compare contrast essays]

How to Save Plants In The Winter

- Save some cash next spring by preserving geraniums, coleus and other plants this fall. With a little effort and a bit of luck, next spring you will have annuals ready for the garden.

Summary Of ' Come Before Winter '

- Come Before Winter Paul, the great apostle of Christ, now well into years, is a prisoner at Rome. He is there because of his faith in Jesus; he is a Christian and the Caesar has sentenced him to die. As winter approached, Paul wrote a letter to Timothy and in that letter, Paul reminisced about those days, when he had taken the young man Timothy as his own beloved son. When Paul was stoned and left for dead at Lystra, it may well have been Timothy, who wiped the blood stains from the apostle’s face, bound his wounds and cared for him until he was able to continue his journey....   [tags: Jesus, New Testament, Saint Peter, Christianity]

Winter

- I pressed my face up against the glass window, my moist breath causing it to fog up. I watched the boy's dark silhouette shift positions slightly, as he leaned back against the deteriorating stonewall, and buried his head in his hands. Tendrils of dark bronze hair assisted in the covering of his face, making it even more impossible to see what he might look like. He didn't know I was here, quietly watching him. Hell, he didn't even know I existed. I squinted, straining my vision, hoping I could maybe see his face in order to have a visual picture of him....   [tags: Creative Writing Essays]

And, like some bizarre divorce settlement, every alternate even year provides us the Winter Olympics. An event which, no matter how much people (including myself) enjoy it, still has a "red-headed stepchild" quality to it.

The Coldest Winter Ever

- Debut novel by hip-hop rap artist Sister Souljah, whose No Disrespect (1994), which mixes sexual history with political diatribe, is popular in schools country-wide. In its way, this is a tour de force of black English and underworld slang, as finely tuned to its heroine's voice as Alice Walker's The Color Purple. The subject matter, though, has a certain flashiness, like a black Godfather family saga, and the heroine's eventual fall develops only glancingly from her character.
