Shakespeare uses a black character in this play because the audience of that time would automatically be prejudiced against Othello. Then in the first scene of the first act we hear more negative comments concerning Othello so that by the time we meet him
Othello Othello is one of Shakespeare's tragedies. It is basically a play about jealousy, love, and a lack of trust. There are about five main characters in the book and the interesting thing is that it contains a black character which would have been very unusual in Elizabethan times. Shakespeare uses a black character in this play because the audience of that time would automatically be prejudiced against Othello. Then in the first scene of the first act we hear more negative comments concerning Othello so that by the time we meet him we view him in a poisoned mould, expecting him to be worse than he is. When we finally meet him we find him to be held high in the opinions of many senators including the Duke of Venice who entrusts him with leadership of the defence of Cyprus. Othello is then told that Desdemona, his wife, may come to Cyprus with him but must travel in a separate ship with Iago, Othello's servant. We learn that Iago thinks that he has many reasons to dislike Othello and that he is planning to destroy him. Iago persuades Rodrigo, a Venetian gentleman who loves Desdemona, to come with him to Cyprus because Desdemona will soon realise her mistake and will want a lover. He tricks Rodrigo into selling most of his land so that he can give gifts to Desdemona through Iago but Iago keeps the gifts. Iago uses cunning to twist the people around him to his will. An
To understand if Parliamentary sovereignty has or has not diminished by the joining of the European Union (EU) in 1973 we must first look at the traditional meaning of Parliamentary sovereignty.
To understand if Parliamentary sovereignty has or has not diminished by the joining of the European Union (EU) in 1973 we must first look at the traditional meaning of Parliamentary sovereignty. The writings of influential author on the British constitutional law Professor A.V, Dicey1 , states that Parliament supremacy is 'the dominant characteristic of our political institutions'2 and went further on by saying ' The principle of Parliamentary sovereignty means neither more nor less than this, namely that parliament... has under the English constitution, the right to make or unmake any law whatever; and, further, that no person or body is recognised by the law of England as having a right to override or set aside the legislation Parliament.3 So here Dicey believes Parliament is sovereign and no body or institution can overrule Parliament. One of the traditional principles of Parliamentary sovereignty is the the principle that courts must be obedient to Acts of Parliament, which is illustrated in the case of Madzimbamuto where Cockburn CJ held 'it would be unconstitutional for Parliament to do certain things...if parliament chose to do one of these things the courts cannot hold the Act of Parliament invalid.'4 Another important principle is implied repeal which means Parliament is unable to bind its successors, it follows legislation enacted by one Parliament cannot be
Macbeth - The Witches are the Heart of the Play
"The Witches are the Heart of the Play" Paddy L In Shakespeare's day many, most people would have had no doubts about he actual existence of witches, and in their powers of evil, demonstrated by the European witch craze, where some 9 million women were burnt at the stake for practicing 'witchcraft'. There were however strong arguments as to their non-existence in the same period. Even the play's opening stage direction, "Enter three witches", could be interpreted as a compressed historical commentary on the belief in witchcraft from antiquity, until the 1700's. The practice of witchcraft was perceived as subverting the established order of religion and society, and thus was not tolerated, while death for murder by witchcraft had been the standard punishment since 1563. The prominent part played by the Witches in this case came at a fitting time, since King James first encountered witchcraft while returning from a trip to Denmark, where it came to light that several witches had tried to cast spells upon him. This resulted in the development of a passionate interest in the Black Arts: "In respect of the strangeness of these matters" he "took great delight to be present at [the Witches'] examinations". His interest would only have been fanned to learn that "by reason the King is the greatest enemy he hath in the world". The intensity of the tragedy in MacBeth is hinged on
Droit des socits
Le droit des sociétés Introduction Dans notre système juridique, il n'existe pas de notion juridique d'entreprise contrairement au système anglo-saxon, c'est-à-dire un concept qui permettrait de soumettre au même régime juridique tous les éléments composants une entreprise (patrimoniaux, extra patrimoniaux) ce qui permettrait de céder une entreprise. Une des raisons pour laquelle il n'y a pas de concept réside dans la notion de patrimoine en droit français. Dès qu'on est une personne au sens juridique on possède certains droits et aussi un patrimoine ; le patrimoine c'est à la fois l'ensemble des droits et obligations d'une personne à un moment mais c'est aussi l'ensemble des droits et obligations qu'elle pourra posséder par la suite (c'est un potentiel).Si toute personne a un patrimoine, elle ne peut en avoir qu'un seul car le droit français ignore la notion de patrimoine d'affectation. La conséquence est que l'entreprise est un élément du patrimoine de l'entrepreneur permis les autres éléments de son patrimoine et il n'a pas pu la soumettre à un régime juridique particulier. C'est également la raison pour laquelle l'entreprise est rattachée au droit de propriété de l'entrepreneur. Cette prohibition du patrimoine d'affectation c'est d'abord estompé par l'apparition des sociétés unipersonnelles ; mais c'est également la possibilité pour

Section 2 Purpose The purpose of this lab was to verify the certainty of a range of measuring devices, and to correctly establish the number of significant figures to record the measurements as well as to calculate them. Experimental Procedure See the attached experiment. Data See the attached data. Theoretical Section/Discussion of Results Everybody makes and utilizes measurements on a daily basis. Scientists, not excluding, make and use measurements, because it is fundamental to their data. Measurement is how much there is of something that you can quantify.1 Measurements include a number and unit. All measuring instruments are susceptible to a certain amount of uncertainty. Uncertainty is accounted by instrument design and can be best defined as the degree of variability in the observations.2 In a measurement, estimation is always done to one more place value than what is already calibrated on the instrument. Usually, the more calibrated it is, the more numbers an instrument will allow to be recorded, which means the more certain the value is. In every lab, it is every scientist's goal to generate measurements that are both correct and reproducible. Being correct and able to reproduce similar measurements can be
Examine the theme of parental conflict in Romeo and Juliet. Discuss the relevance of this theme for both a modern day audience and Shakespeare's audience.
Matthew woodhams 10H Examine the theme of parental conflict in Romeo and Juliet. Discuss the relevance of this theme for both a modern day audience and Shakespeare's audience. Many parents in this day and age would most likely have the deepest sympathy towards Juliet . Even though the parents in Shakespeare's time would have gone with Juliet's father Lord Capulet who wanted to have Juliet marry Parris who was an opulent man, this is the reason why Juliet's father made an arranged marriage for her and the same for many other fathers who wanted there daughters or daughters to live a wealthily life. It is very certain that a twenty-first century parent would not have there son or daughter have an arranged marriage. The feud between the Capulet's and the Montague's was started way before the plays curtains were first opened but the story was not based on someone's life but it is possible that this sort of thing could have happened in Shakespeare's time. When the first scene opened there was two servants form the Capulet's house and they spotted two servants from the Montague household which then they all end up fighting, this scene shows that there is a little tension between the Capulet's and the Montague's. Even though Romeo and Juliet did not know that the both were from enemy house holds, but later found out the truth and there love for each other

Theresa Gill Paintings
Theresa Gill Paintings Introduction "Art imitates life" The saying above states that arts are the key to understanding our humanity. It is the window to the soul of what we hold to be important - to the beliefs and values of our culture. Art is the products of human creativity. Basically, there are numerous types and classifications of art. Be it dancing, singing, performing on stage, designing, film, photography, computer graphics, architecture, comics and many more. But the most common form of art is painting and sculpture. Written here is a comparative essay between the famous paintings namely Ecce Ancilla Domini worked by Dante Gabriel Rossetti and The Yellow Christ worked by Paul Gaugin and the sculptural works of Francois Rude which is The Departure of the Volunteers of 1792 and the work of Auguste Rene Rodin which is the Honore Balzac. Paintings Ecce Ancilla Domini The painting beside is the Ecce Ancilla Domini or The Annunciation. This painting is a work by Dante Gabriel Rossetti, the chief member of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood. This painting portrays the commonly illustrated moment when the Angel Gabriel comes to the Virgin Mary to tell her the news that she will give birth to the Lord. Although Rossetti depends on earlier traditions for many of the symbols he places in the scene, his method of employing these symbols, his depiction of space, and most
Analyzing Othello in Terms Of Aristotle's Poetics.
Vanessa Mendez Eng265.5900 The Drama Midterm examination Analyzing Othello in Terms Of Aristotle's Poetics Aristotle's Poetics are methods that have been used for centuries. They are considered to be the guidelines for a well written tragedy. Aristotle believed that the plot has the most important part of a tragedy. Everything else like hamartia and diction form the plot. Othello is a perfect example of tragedy. According to Aristotle tragedy "is the imitation of an action that is serious and also as having magnitude"- "with incident arousing pity and fear, where to accomplish its catharsis of such emotions" (Pg-5). Othello is a perfect example of all this. The play circled around the Character of Othello who was lead to believe his wife was having an affair with Cassio, due to the lies intrigues of Iago. This is defined as serious action; because a man that believes that his wife is having an affair can become emotionally disturbed. Othello did become depressed and began to feel anger and hate towards poor Desdemona. He also had bear hearing the lies Iago came up with, and evidence that proved that Desdemona was having a supposed affair. Still today this serious action could have still caused a tragedy. Aristotle's idea of tragedy being of a certain magnitude can be seen when Othello kills his wife. Then when he learns that it was all lies and intrigues caused by
Composers often use different methods to portray similar ideas to their audience. How have the two texts you have studied reflect the same ideas in different ways? Shakespeare's Taming of the Shrew and Jill Junge's 10 Things I Hate about You.
English Transformation Practice Essay Composers often use different methods to portray similar ideas to their audience. How have the two texts you have studied reflect the same ideas in different ways? Shakespeare's Taming of the Shrew and Jill Junge's 10 Things I Hate about You are examples of where composers have used different methods to portray similar ideas to their audience. This essay will compare the three common themes the texts share, including marriage and dating, deception and disguise and the role and hierarchy of women in society. By comparing the dramatic and film techniques used in each of these respective texts, the common themes are expressed in their individual ways which ultimately are able to engage their audiences. Traditionally, economics and financial gain have been the more important aspect in relationships, especially marriage, as opposed to love. The marriage and dating customs of society have remained relatively similar overtime. In Taming of the Shrew, the audience is given an exclusive view into what marriage meant to society and individuals of the Elizabethan period. William Shakespeare conveyed how marriage as a financial gain was specifically applied to peoples during his era in Taming of the Shrew, where in Act 1 Scene 2, Petruchio and his servant Grumio visit Hortensio's house. Petruchio boldly announces his quest to wed a rich wife.
