Coping Mechanisms in Kurt Vonnegut’s Slaughterhouse-Five

It is simpler to avoid something as tragic as death, but Vonnegut stresses the importance of confronting it. Vonnegut, like many artists, expresses his ideas through his creations....   [tags: Slaughterhouse-Five]

An Exploration of the Contribution of Disguise and Deceit to the Humour of Twelfth Night

- An Exploration of the Contribution of Disguise and Deceit to the Humour of Twelfth Night ‘Twelfth Night’ could be seen as a play with dark and harsh meanings, for example, it could be said that Malvolio’s planned revenge at the end of the play has an uneasy effect on the audience, in a time of general harmony. However I think that although ‘Twelfth Night’ does raise some moral issues, overall it is an enjoyable play. It is a play; designed to be performed in the dark, gloomy winter to bring lightness into peoples lives and I think it is successful in doing so because of the humorous scenes and characters....   [tags: Papers]
