... HAMLET BY SHAKESPEARE The human mind is a ‘mine’ of thoughts. That is, the human mind is ‘mined’ with lot of thoughts and memories, which can be ‘extracted’ and put into action only at appropriate times. The timeline between thought translating into action will be shorter in some cases, while it will be longer in some other cases. However, most times, the mind will have thoughts, which will be put on planning mode for a longer period before being translated into action, without any motivation to complete it quickly. This delayed mode of action, if looked positively, would show one’s patience and planning, while if looked negatively would show one’s hesitance. While hesitance is normally seen...

... Commentaries Detailed Commentaries William Shakespeare: Much Ado About Nothing A defining characteristic of many of Shakespeares comedies, is that, at the end of the plays, fellowships are created between newly married couples, or soon to be married couples, and their communities. Although they achieve happiness at the close of the plays, it is never easily obtained, nor is it ever accomplished by all of the characters. In fact, Shakespeares use of disguises ironically reveals that a characters happiness depends on the individuals ability to develop into his or her true identity, which, unlike a false identity, is made up of the characteristics of the individual when he or she is allowed to develop...

It will attempt demonstrate how, in spite of being a film which eludes specific categorisation, Seven contains many of the defining characteristics of film noir, whilst also managing to maintain an accessible and Hollywood style gloss. It will initially explain how Seven can be regarded as what Hardy (97, 301) describes as a ‘neo-noir’ film, whilst also fitting into the New-brutality film category, in order to present a chronological narrative structure. It will then go on to discuss aspects of narrative which bridge these two categories and examine the narrative structure...

Such is a strategic conclusion to the play given the fact that it ends in a suspense. The epilogue just as the name suggests is not part of the play but serves to explain the intricate features of the conflict as the play ends.

Euthyphro asserts that he is a possible follower of his father. Originally, Euthyphro proposes to explain piety as the act of assigning to the father the charge of the committed crime. On the other hand, Socrates, castoffs the choice and elucidates that this is not the definition of pity but rather its example. Then Euthyphro recommends that piety is the thing that is valued by deities.

Irony is evident in Sammy’s failed attempt to impress the girls.

The face lacks any sense of individuality with the focus placed mainly on the human form itself. The statue Kouros (600 BCE), is an example from the Archaic period that echoes Egyptian statuary.

... Gilgamesh could be considered a bad king at the beginning of the epic because he uses his office to bully others and to abuse his citizens. He requires all of the new brides to sleep with him before they are allowed to sleep with their husbands. He threatens and physically attacks any person that does not agree with him. 2. With the entrance of Enkidu, the classic theme of foe becoming friend is introduced. Enkidu is Gilgamesh’s equal in so many ways; Gilgamesh seeks initially to vanquish him. But Enkidu is also the epitome of simplicity and loyalty. These attributes soften Gilgamesh and they become fast friends. Gilgamesh lives to conquer, preferably in the limelight so everyone can see his str...

... The Impact of the Ghost Without the ghost of Hamlet’s father, this play would have been an utter failure. It is his death, which was not known to be murder at the beginning of the play, and its avenging around which the entire play revolves. It is important that the audience knows that this was a good man in order for them to identify with him and with Hamlet. Otherwise the theme and tone of the play could not be accomplished. Even though the murder of a king is illegal, and the murderer should be punished, if the murdered king was a bad man or a cruel ruler it is nearly impossible to raise emotional involvement or support for justice or vengeance in the minds of the audience, since they would be...

... Lord of the Rings I think the reason why Lord of the Rings is such a pop culture phenomenon is because it provides a sense of purpose and goodness to a society that is sorely lacking in experiences of honorable leaders and noble pursuits. The story talks about Aragorn and Frodo struggling against a world of evil to bring about a new era of light and justice. This is something that has been lacking particularly in American politics in the past eight years, the period when many of the younger generation with whom the film series has appealed have begun to remember world events and are now having to consider the ramifications on their own future. Some are being trained and sent off to a war that...

... The current report looks at the theme of revenge mixed with the theme of gender roles in the play Death and the Maiden. The basic argument that the current report follows is that Paulina’s actions in the play can be explained as two ways: acts of revenge and acts of an oppressed woman in a patriarchal society; the predominant explanation, however, is that of revenge. This is basically a book that follows the arc of its plot through a revenge theme, so revenge must be the most important element. However, the uncertainty about some of the characters’ relationships also lend this play an air of mystery. Ultimately, Paulina must confront the self-interest that drives her to take violent revenge on...
