Comparing Measure for Measure and The Merchant of Venice, As You Like It, and Twelfth Night - Parallels between Measure for Measure and The Merchant of Venice, As You Like It, and Twelfth Night What is comedy?  Funk and Wagnalls New Encyclopedia says: "A comedy depicts the follies and absurdities of human beings."  Webster's Dictionary defines comedy as: "A drama or narrative with a happy ending."  Shakespeare's play, Measure for Measure, fits both of these descriptions.  Follies and absurdities are present in the play: Lucio slanders the Duke, not realizing that his crude remarks are being spoken to the Duke himself; Angelo abuses his power thinking that the Duke is not present to know; and Ragozine happens to die in prison the day a head is needed to substitute for Claudio's.  Th...   [tags: Comparison Compare Contrast Essays] 1984 words

Essay on Justice vs. Morality in Measure for Measure and Merchant of Venice - Justice vs. Morality in Measure for Measure and Merchant of Venice   There are many similarities shared between Shakespeare's plays, "Measure for Measure", and "The Merchant of Venice".  The underlying theme of each work is well defined by the phrase "Justice without the temperance of mercy, is power misused".  I will support this claim by drawing upon some of the characters and situations that are consistent in each story. In each story a man's life depends on the interpretation, and sanctioning of justice.  In the, "Merchant of Venice", Antonio (who I believe represents mercy), had sealed a bond with Shylock offering a pound of his flesh for the loan of three thousand ducats.  Unfortuna...   [tags: comparison compare contrast essays]

Comparing Wealth, Power, and Virtue in Measure for Measure and Mrs. Warren's Profession - Wealth, Power, and Virtue in Measure for Measure and Mrs. Warren’s Profession     As seen in the dramas Measure for Measure and Mrs. Warren’s Profession, the Elizabethan and Victorian periods have different views of wealth, power and virtue. To compare these views, one should start by defining the different views of virtue.

Comparing Sexuality in All's Well That Ends Well, Measure for Measure, and Troilus and Cressida - Female Sexuality in All's Well That Ends Well, Measure for Measure, and Troilus and Cressida      Although strict chronology is a problematic proposition, most scholars believe that the problem plays - All's Well That Ends Well, Measure for Measure, and Troilus and Cressida - were composed in the period between Hamlet and Othello (Mabillard), a period in which Shakespeare was focusing his energies on his great tragedies.  This fact, some believe, may help to account for the darker mood of these ostensible comedies.  In fact, Boas, the critic who coined the term "problem play," originally included Hamlet in this grouping, since he found a similarity of theme and irresolution between that p...   [tags: comparison compare contrast essays]

Tragic elements and more psychologically complex characters increase the intensity of the ending and often make a reader or viewer question if there will be a happy ending at all.

To What Extent Does Religion Affect the Characters in "Measure for Measure?" - At the time that Measure for Measure was written, England was a Protestant country, meaning that the monarch at the time, James I was the head of the Church of England. However, the England that Shakespeare was brought up in was still living with the remnants of a Catholic history, and so the religious beliefs that he would have learnt about as a child would have been those of the Catholic faith. Although Shakespeare was writing the play for a Protestant audience and a Protestant king, he was setting the play in a Catholic country, so this gave him an opportunity to feature his religious beliefs as a Catholic in the play....   [tags: European Literature] 1669 words
