- Jealousy And Mistaken Identity In Shakespeare - 1,192 words
Jealousy and Mistaken Identity in Shakespeare Jealousy and Mistaken Identity in Shakespeare William Shakespeares life is somewhat of a mystery to scholars due to the fact that most information that is known is very scattered and sparse.

William Shakespeare and his family lived on Henley Street. A bond dated November 28, 1582 stated that William Shakespeare and Anne Hathaway entered into a marriage contract. ...

- The Taming Of The Shrew Mistaken Identity - 796 words
The Taming of the Shrew - Mistaken Identity The Taming of the Shrew In Shakespeare's comedy, "The Taming of the Shrew," one of the main ways that the theme is shown is by mistaken identity. The main theme of this play is that what a person is really like is more important than how they appear to be. This is shown by Petruchio's relationship with Katherine; the changing roles of Tranio, Lucentio, and Hortensio; and the true characters of Bianca and Katherine. All three of these situations help to enrich the theme. The first predicament that supports the theme is Petruchio's relationship with Katherine. When we first meet Petruchio, he is only after the money of Katherine, and accepts her hars ...

- Greasy Lake - 1,937 words
Greasy Lake *b*"Bad Characters or Bad Character Wanna-be's?"*/b* Greasy Lake is the story of three friends who are bad characters. Until they run into a situation where they question, just how bad they are. Just because they act badly and look bad does not mean they are. They are teenagers in a period, "when courtesy and winning ways [are] out of style when it [is] good to be bad, when they [cultivate] decadence like a taste." (112) They look bad, wearing torn-up leather jackets, slouching around with toothpicks in their mouths and wearing their shades morning, noon and night. They have the attitude, they drive their parents cars fast, and burn rubber as the pull out of the driveway. They ha ...

- Measure For Measure - 840 words
Measure For Measure From the beginning of the play the Duke shows his fascination with the art of disguise. He has Lord Angelo takes his place and he in turn becomes a friar in disguise. Throughout the play this notion of false identity and exchange of identity plays an important role for the Duke and also for the characters in the play. To understand why the Duke has this desire to disguise himself one can look at the beginning of the play in act 1 scene 3 where the Duke is at the monastery asking Friar Thomas to hide him there. He tells the friar that he has good reasons for hiding, and that he has lied to Angelo about his destination. The Duke explains that for the past fourteen years the ...

- Othello - 877 words
Othello "Friends" A friendship is not always what it is made out to be. Sometimes, the perceived level of security a friendship gives is false. This 'false friendship' is portrayed explicitly in William Shakespeare's "Othello." Superficially, Roderigo and Iago are friends. In reality, Iago is using Roderigo to seek revenge on Othello and they are in fact, not friends. Iago's jealousy of power and love consumes him into using his apparent friend for his own personal gain. In these relationships, there is always a stronger person who uses a weaker person's need for a friend, to achieve their desired goals. It is evident just by looking at the amount of lines Iago has, that he is much stronger, ...

- The Taming Of The Shrew Humour - 812 words
The Taming of the Shrew - Humour In The Taming of the Shrew, Shakespeare creates humour through his characters by creating false realities (as demonstrated by Petruchios behaviour and attire in the scene of his wedding) and by the use of subterfuge and mistaken identity (shown in the final scenes with the transformation of Kate and Biancas respective personas). He also uses irony quite extensively, especially towards the end of the play (as can be seen in the final wager scene). The concept that things are not always as they seem is quite evident in the events surrounding, and including, Petruchios wedding ceremony. This particular scene in the play demonstrates how the use of false realitie ...

- Ufos: Fact Or Fiction - 2,028 words
... hich explains UFO reports. This hypothesis declares that there is no need to consider pseudoscientific or more exotic hypotheses; there is certainly no justification for the idea that UFO reports represent evidence for the activity of aliens or paranormal influences (Amateur 15). The similar appearances of UFOs are easily explained using the mirage theory. Stars and planets can be seen from anywhere on Earth. Our atmosphere is as likely to produce an inverted reflection (mirage) in one place as another. Moreover, the few basic shapes reported are consistent with the protean forms seen in mirages, especially the double ᠆ ...

Vietnam The movie "Good Morning, Vietnam" Directed by Barry Levinson and written by Mitch Markowitz Had a solid view, that was portrayed in many ways, on the roles of the North Vietnamese, South Vietnamese, and American Soldiers. It also depicted a clear picture of the Vietnamese Civilians and Viet Cong. The film began with a clear-cut portrayal of American Soldiers within the confounds of an office, and the discrepancies amongst the high ranking and higher ranking Officers. Robin Williams is introduced into the Movie as a humorous man meant to be a radio DJ for the American Soldiers fighting outside the Office. The high-ranking officials in charge of the News broadcastings limited Adrian Cr ...
