  1. Mother Courage and her children by Brecht

    Eilif sings the "Ballad of the Girl and the soldier" and dances a sword dance. Courage adds a verse in which the foolhardy soldier dies in an icy river. > Poland, 1629 Swiss Cheese has been made regimental paymaster. The war has taken a good turn and Courage feels her business prospects look good. Yvette Pottier, the camp prostitute, throws aside her hat and red boots and complains that her business is low now that it is known she has a Venereal Disease.

  2. What do you find interesting about Shakespeare's presentation of deception in 'Much Ado About Nothing'?

    Claudio professes his love for Hero - 'in mine eye she is the sweetest lady...' - and Don Pedro decides to woo her for him. This deception plays a major part in introducing the theme of the play. The unexpected eagerness of Don Pedro, the highly respected Prince of Arragon, to participate in this scheme instantly presents deception as tolerable and fabricates an expectancy of further deceptive schemes; it also infers a characteristic attribute of management and organisation of other people's lives, and an authority to intervene in these lives while maintaining a degree of emotional detachment.

  • To What Extent Is El Médico de su Honra principally a Play about Honour?

    "A final theme that should be discussed is that of fate. Many incidents occur that all aid in pushing the play towards its conclusion. The first example is before the start of the play when Gutierre sees Arias leaving the house of his betrothed, Leonor. He breaks off their engagement and marries Menc�a. At the beginning of Act 1, Enrique enters the scene as he falls off his horse. This physically fall is a hint at what is to come; the fall from honour of Enrique, by pursuing a married woman. Another clue as to the future of characters is when Pedro hands Enrique his dagger and it cuts the King's hand. The audience, knowing the history of the two half brothers, know that Enrique kills Pedro, but this occurrence also serves to indicate the death of Menc�a. In my mind, El M�dico de su Honra is principally about honour. Although I have mentioned other themes in this essay, they are all linked in some way to honour. Therefore, honour is present in every situation. Each character thinks of honour at some point because it is extremely easy to lose it, as we have seen from Gutierre, who is dishonoured just by the thought that his wife is being dishonest. Claire Blackburn, St Peter's"
