Friendship and Love in The Two Gentlemen of Verona

- Throughout The Two Gentlemen of Verona, scenes featuring Lance and his dog, Crab are juxtaposed with (and perhaps reference) interactions between the friends and lovers central to the plot. The primarily comic scenes in which Lance and Crab are present often illuminate problems in the relationships between the other characters in the play. Although Crab never speaks and is in fact a dog, his interactions with Lance as Lance explains them, mock the celebrated love between male friends and the much afflicting Petrarchan love that threatens it....   [tags: The Two Gentlemen of Verona]

Borowski successfully illustrates dehumanization not of new arrivals but of those who have been the camp.

The Two Gentlemen of Verona by William Shakespeare

- During the play, Lance delivers the speech while Crab stands beside him looking quite content, as though his owner was ticking off a list of accomplishments. Crab is a dog who urinates publicly without regard, and often at the expense of Lance’s reputation and well-being. However, the live adaptation makes clear that Crab is an innocuous creature – a benign dog who means no harm by his actions, something that his owner recognizes and thus tolerates. So long as he is with his owner, Crab understands that Lance is as loyal an owner as any and will interject himself between Crab and the punishments should the situation ever arise or call for them....   [tags: elizabethan era, foolish people]

And as the novel progresses, one cannot help but wonder if this same sentiment does indeed echo throughout the novel, as male characters are conspicuously absent while all the pivotal parts are played by the women characters. This gender imbalance -- in that there are more female characters than male in Little Women -- is especially obvious when male authority figures such as Mr March and Mr Lawrence are markedly absent for most of the novel....   [tags: essays research papers]
