It contradicts reason to think that a two-second judgment could be more accurate than a carefully made analysis, but in many cases it is....   [tags: Literary Analysis]

Original Play: Brooke's Changing Life

- |Part I| While Brooke had perfected her culinary skills into a mastery that could surely put Rachael Ray out of business if she really wanted to, breakfast was probably the furthest thing from her mind right now, but with Hunter's suggestion that they stay away from the hosptital for the day and do something else, it only seemed fitting she do as he requested. Giving up and waving the white flag was the only option in her eyes, so she again lifted her head, pushing back her matted hair from her face, trying to think of activities to keep her and her little energizer bunny occupied for the day and take their minds and heavy hearts off of what had happened and that was what she had to keep rem...   [tags: Plays, theatre, Creative Writing]

The Play ' Lysistrata '

- The play was considered comic by the ancient Athenians because of its rhyming lyricism, its song and dance, its bawdy puns, but most of all because the notion and methods of female empowerment conceived in the play were perfectly ridiculous. Yet, as is the case in a number of Aristophanes’ plays, he has presented an intricate vision of genuine human crisis. In true, comic form Aristophanes superficially resolves the play’s conflicts celebrating the absurdity of dramatic communication. It is these loose threads that are most rife with tragedy for modern reader....   [tags: Gender, Female, Woman, Male]
