Analysis of the Second Shepherds' Play - Ultimately, I feel that this play is putting to perspective the Christian religious practices; by at the end of the play [the reader] should be able to understand that through forgiveness, a reward is possible. I feel that this play teaches those who follow the Christian faith that they’re people in the world who carry out and do the most outlandish of ideas which may get them caught. Instead of the person being punished for their deed of infraction or as part of punishment, forgive them and you shall be rewarded based on your ability to forgive those who trespass against you (reference to Moses’ Ten Commandments)....   [tags: Christian, Christianity] 415 words

The Passionate Shepherd Poems - The Passionate Shepherd Poems The poems “The Passionate Shepherd to His Love” (Marlowe), “The Nymph’s Reply to the Shepherd” (Raleigh), and “Song” (Lewis ) all focus on the same basic plot and characters but vary considerably in point of view and theme. This difference comes primarily through the difference in the poems’ speakers. A poor shepherd is the voice of both “The Passionate Shepherd to His Love,” and “Song.” However, the shepherds of the two poems feature almost opposite attitudes. The shepherd in “The Passionate Shepherd to His Love,” the original poem of the series, is a romantic idealist who paints beautiful pictures for the girl he loves of “beds of roses” and riches....   [tags: Poems Poetry Shepherds Essays] 428 words

College Athletes Should Not Get Paid for Play - The argument whether a student-athlete should be paid to play or not be paid is one that spans the ages. College sports are considered to be of amateur status by the NCAA. Therefore they believe student-athletes should not receive a pay check to participate in a sport. However on the other end of the spectrum, many critics believe that student-athletes should receive pay for play because not only are they participating in a sport, they are entertaining the spectators. They believe that if performers in the entertainment industry are paid, why not pay the college-athletes....   [tags: no pay for play] 825 words

Play Review: Baby with the Bathwater - Red Rock Community College’s adaptation of Christopher Durang’s play Baby with the Bathwater, directed by James O’Leary, concluded its 8-show run with a sold out finale performance on Sunday April 23rd, 2014. When the lights came up on the bassinet in the otherwise darkness of the stage, the image more or less stands for everything that follows – childhood, loneliness and abandonment. It seems that an icon of the entire human experience, not just the implied infancy, is being presented. When the lights come up even further, the bassinet gives way in significance to a married couple standing over it: John (Kyle LaBoria), the father that coos at “Daddy’s little baked potato,” and Helen (Amien...   [tags: Play Reviews] 582 words

Comparison of a Play within a Play in Hamlet - Even though they are performing the same scene, the two movies are very different in style. First, the shots and lighting are displayed differently to catch the different moods of the movies. In the first movie, the camera stays close to everybody's face. It seems to zoom in on characters that are speaking and does not try to capture the listeners' reactions to those who are speaking. Also, the lighting is very dark and the scene is closed in.

An Analysis in Feminism in the Play 'Lysistrata' - In Aristophanes play Lysistrata, the women of Greece take on the men to stop the raging war between the Athenians and the Spartans. To stop the war, the women withhold sex from their male counterparts, and take over the Acropolis for themselves. The women are indeed triumphant in their goals to stop the war, and the Athenians and Spartans come to an understanding. What is blatantly ignored, however, is that Aristophanes creates a gender war that, although seemingly rejoices the actions of the women, instead mocks the women’s power-struggle in a male dominated society, focuses on the male-privilege seen throughout the entirety of the play, and should be disregarded in the fact that this play...   [tags: Aristophanes play, ancient Greek drama]
