Post Colonial Interpretations of Shakespeare’s The Tempest

- Post Colonial Interpretations of Shakespeare’s The Tempest “…do we really expect, amidst this ruin and undoing of our life, that any is yet left a free and uncorrupted judge of great things and things which reads to eternity; and that we are not downright bribed by our desire to better ourselves?” – Longinus Since the seventeenth century many interpretations and criticisms of William Shakespeare’s The Tempest have been recorded. Yet, since the play is widely symbolical and allegorical Shakespeare’s actual intentions behind the creation of the play can never be revealed....   [tags: Shakespeare Tempest]

Conflict and Harmony in The Tempest

- Conflict and Harmony in The Tempest     William Shakespeare describes a 'utopic' world saturated with supernatural images and ideas which works to create the mysterious island where The Tempest takes place.  This is one of Shakespeare's best examples of how a natural harmony reveals itself through the actions of discourse and confusion.  To illustrate this idea best one must examine the historical context upon which The Tempest is based.  Because this play was published in the early 1600s, controversial cultural and political events undoubtedly surface.  Furthermore, by analyzing the sub-plots in the play, the reader has a better understanding of Shakespeare's purpose for including mult...   [tags: Tempest essays]

Analysis on the novel "The Hours"

- QUESTIONS ON THE FILM “THE HOURS” 1) “The Hours”, based on the novel written by Michael Cunningham, is more than a biographical movie about Virginia Woolf. How can you discribe the importance and co- relation between the three female main characters: Virginia, Laura Brown and Clarissa Vaughan. The novel is essentially about women. Women from different periods, of different ages, and oddly the same in various aspects. We get to know women that apparently lead perfect lives, considering the external aspect, and all of them come to a moment in their lives when they stumble upon the superficiality of their days and face their disturbed inner selves....   [tags: essays research papers]

Attitudes Social Psychology's Most Indispensable Concept

- Attitudes Social Psychology's Most Indispensable Concept Augoustinos & Walker (1995) claim the attitudes area has been the most researched and heavily invested topic in social psychology. The 1960/70's saw an era of pessimism regarding the attitude-behaviour association. However, by the 80's there was resurgence due to cognitive psychology's impact (Hogg and Vaughan 2002). Attitudes influence perceptions of others and also how we perceive ourselves. Augoustinos & Walker (1995:12) believe attitudes are 'real and tangible, which influence the way that attitude owner behaves'....   [tags: Papers]

Death Presented in Metaphysical Poetry

- Death Presented in Metaphysical Poetry Death is presented in metaphysical poetry in a number of different ways. However, from the glorified object of desire in Henry Vaughan’s ‘They are all gone into the world of light’ to the way in which John Donne mocks the personified death in ‘Death be not proud’, there are also a lot of common points which are made. The historical context of the pieces is clearly an influential factor.

The Importance of Race in Othello

- Throughout time, writing has evolved such that gender, race and creed have taken on a more pivotal role in fiction. Some people argue that race in William Shakespeare’s tragedy, “Othello,” is hardly an issue. However, to many people, race is everything in “Othello. The challenges that Othello, the lead character, faces are directly attributed to his “Moor” complexion and if he were of a different nationality, the outcome of his situation would have been drastically different. These claims are supported by the articles of “Othello’s Alienation” by Edward Berry and “Race Mattered: Othello in Late Eighteenth-Century England” by Virginia Mason Vaughan that argue that race is a major element in “...   [tags: Discuss the importance of race in Othello]
