Empowerment of Women in Much Ado About Nothing, As You Like It, and The Taming of the Shrew - Empowerment of Women in Much Ado About Nothing, As You Like It, and The Taming of the Shrew      In Shakespeare’s comedies, many – possibly even most - of the female characters are portrayed as being manipulated, if not controlled outright, by the men in their lives: fathers, uncles, suitors, husbands.  And yet, there are women inhabiting Shakespeare’s comedic world who seem to enjoy a greater degree of autonomy and personal power than one would expect in a patriarchal society.  Superficially, therefore, Shakespeare’s comedies appear to send mixed signals regarding the notion of female empowerment.  Some women are strong and independent, others are completely submissive, and the behavior...   [tags: comparison compare contrast essays]

Film Versions of Shakespeare Comedies - Film Versions of Shakespeare Comedies Shakespearean plays are complex, intricate pieces of work in which a diverse range of interpretations and readings can be made. This is particularly true of his comedies, where the light-hearted humour is often offset by darker, more serious undertones. In adapting these comedies it is for the director – in the cinematic context – to decide how to interpret the play and which elements are privileged and which are suppressed. This variance in interpretation is exemplified in comparing two of the more recent cinematic adaptations of Shakespeare’s comedies, Trevor Nunn’s Twelfth Night and Kenneth Branagh’s A Much Ado About Nothing [‘Much Ado’]....   [tags: Twelfth Night Much Ado Nothing Essays] 2205 words

Viola and Beatrice in Twelfth Night and Much Ado About Nothing -       Viola and Beatrice both take on men's roles, Viola that of a manservant and Beatrice that of the perpetual bachelor and the clown: "I was born to speak all mirth and no matter," she says to Don Pedro [II.i.343-4]. They appear to be actors and manipulators, much more so than their female predecessors, who are mostly reactive and manipulated, such as Hermia, Helena, Titania, and Gertrude. None of these women seemed in charge of her own destiny, but tricked by the schemes of men and later scorned or humiliated as a result of male machinations....   [tags: comparison compare contrast essays]

Much Ado about “Noting” - In the play “Much Ado About Nothing” both the characters and their actions are concerned with “noting” or visually perceiving the other characters and the situations they find themselves in; ironically these perceptions are usually based on false or misinterpreted information. The “noting” in Much Ado is used to great effect, in that it propels the plot and dominates the characters relationships. “Much Ado about Nothing is centrally concerned with problems of knowledge and perception,” this is the main point in Nova Myhill’s article “Spectatorship in/of Much Ado about Nothing”, we will see how characters rely on perception to gain what they believe to be truthful knowledge....   [tags: Shakespearean Literature]

Analysis of a Newspaper Article: Much Ado About Mousing - Analysis of a Newspaper Article: Much Ado About Mousing This piece is in the format of a newspaper article in the broadsheet ‘The Independent Review’.

However, I decided to imitate the verbose style of a broadsheet critic, and I also aimed to mock the overly analytical, presumptuous tone that the media often exudes, by relating every minor incident of ‘violence’ in the cartoon to extreme cases of brutality in society....   [tags: Papers] 433 words

Comparing Forgiveness and Marriage in Much Ado, All's Well, and Measure for Measure - Forgiveness and Marriage in Much Ado about Nothing, All's Well That Ends Well, and Measure for Measure      Shakespeare never does manage to make the journey to the end of his comic plays an easy one for his characters or his audience, and as his comedies evolve, the journey becomes even more difficult. 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. Specific male characters in three plays act as impediments to this comic ending, often prompted by a villainous character and sometimes by their own doing....   [tags: comparison compare contrast essays]

Not Noting Women - Seventeenth-century culture was, undoubtedly, a culture made for men: women, who were considered the weaker of the two sexes, were subjected to their fathers’ wills prior to being married, and subjected to their husbands’ wills forever afterward. Other than remaining faithful to the man to whom she was bound at the time, a Renaissance woman would have had only one other responsibility—that is, maintaining and upholding the honor of the family, which, as it happens, includes remaining faithful. That being said, if a woman were to be found unfaithful to her future husband, the repercussions of such a sin would be tremendous not only to the sinner, but to those with whom she associated herself...   [tags: gender, roles, equality, history, society]

This is when I was first introduced to poetry in a way that stuck with me for the rest of my life.
