  1. Romeo and juliet

    Benvolio's continuous concern over the actions of Mercutio and it is first shown when he hears of the Capulet's arriving and then asks Mercutio to leave so no trouble could be caused. Mercutio then describes what type of man Benvolio is and what Mercutio is not as when he needs to defend himself and fight he does whereas Benvolio is always scared. Mercutio then says how nothing will happen and makes quotes such as "thou hast quarreled with a man for coughing on the street, because he has wakened thy dog that hath lain asleep in the sun".

  2. EN2372 Shakespeare:

    However, when one has been fortunate enough to study a literary text in full, it becomes clear that these supposed reworks neglect to convey many of the details found in the original. And perhaps, this is when one realises that producers of these films are merely manipulating young audiences into regarding the films as being as credible as the original. It could be argued that filmmakers are merely using the authority of a playwrights or novelists name, when really what they have produced in no more than a second-rate adaptation adhering to Hollywood's code rather than a literary one.

  3. A Midsummer Night’s Dream.

    Each of the groups' roles are equally important and are explored below. The fairies are Titania, the Queen of the fairies, Oberon the King of the fairies, and Puck a mischievous fairy and a servant to Oberon. The fairies are introduced in the Open Air Theatre Production amidst smoke and turmoil. This adds a magical feeling to their appearance, and provides a starting point for their part in the plot. Their paths cross in the woods and an argument ensues during which Titania utters the most famous line from this play, 'The fairy kingdom buys not the child of me.'

  • Discuss the role of the Mechanicals and the significance of their play in this text

    "In discussing the role of Nick Bottom and the significance he has in the mechanicals play, sufficient reasoning has been relayed in order to backup my opening sentence; the significance and role of Nick Bottom is made prominent by Shakespeare. With particular reference to that of Nick Bottom, this study has covered the mechanicals as well as dealing with parallels and links between the three worlds Shakespeare has woven. The analysis covered in this essay has outlined the major themes and issues connected with Nick Bottom as part of the mechanicals. Therefore based on all evidence and analysis portrayed in this essay, it is reasonable to conclude that the role of Nick Bottom and the significance of his portrayal in this text is truly an important one."
