A person can be something and "nothing" as exemplified when Ophelia asks Hamlet "What is my Lord?" and Hamlet replies "Nothing."(3.2. 109,111) Shakespeare uses "nothing" multifariously in his tragic play  "Hamlet."  "Nothing" becomes a way for the reader to draw parallels between Young Hamlet, and his slain father.  Young Hamlet's  use of  the word "nothing," consistently borders on the realm of something....   [tags: GCSE Coursework Shakespeare Hamlet]

Trial by Combat: Duels in Shakespeare's Plays - Shakespeare, intending for his plays to be performed as well as published, included the idea of trial by combat in many of his works.

Nothing Gold Can Stay and Marriage In A Doll's House - If there is nothing intrinsically precious, but only superficially glorious, there is nothing to stay. It is the same with marriage.

In this play, we can perceive honor and pride, but the main qualities a marriage requires are innocence and truth....   [tags: robert frost, otto heller]
