  • 13 Were The Elizabethans More Bloodthirsty Or Tolerant Of - 1,210 words
    ... repulsiveness. His is a Dionysianism so passionately self-serving, so deliberate if not cold-blooded, that, corrosive rather than life-giving like the Dionysian at its best, it turns all not only to destruction but to cheapness, ignominy, pointlessness. -Theodore Weiss, The Breath of Clowns and Kings, 1974 - The great stories of murder are about men who could not have done it but who did. They are not murderers, they are men. And their stories will be better still when they are excellent men; not merely brilliant and admirable, but also, in portions of themselves which we infer rather than see. Richard is never quite human enough. The spectacle over which he presides with his bent back a ...

  • Edward Devere Earl Of Oxford - 345 words
    Edward Devere - Earl Of Oxford Edward DeVere - Earl of Oxford 1. Was DeVere an aristocrat or a writer? Writing was not a "proper" this for a gentleman/ aristocrat to do. No courtiers were allowed to write poetry. Because of this rule supposedly many men decided upon a pen name however, running against this rule most aristocrats did publish work throwing out oxfords need for a pen name. Therefore if DeVere did write the famous Shakespearean works the author would be known as DeVere rather than Shakespeare. 2. When did DeVere die? DeVere died in 1604 before the first staging of many of the Shakespearean plays such as; King Lear, MacBeth, Anthony and Cleopatra, Timon of Athens, Coriolanus, Peri ...

  • Hamlet - 332 words
    Hamlet People like to put things into categories. Movie critics do so with films: slasher,buddy,western, war, and more. You can do the same with books: science fiction, gothic romance and so on. Shakespeare's plays also have categories: tragedies, comedies, and histories. But these terms don't mean exactly what you may think they mean. Shakespeare's most famous plays are his tragedies, such as Hamlet. These plays follow the standard rules for tragedies: The hero has a basic human failure that brings about his downfall and death, but before he dies, he learns an important lesson about his failure and how it destroyed his life (and usually the lives of those he loved). Shakespeare didn't write ...

  • Shakespeare Also Spelled Shakspere, Byname Bard Of Avon, Or Swan Of Avon - 600 words
    Shakespeare also spelled SHAKSPERE, byname BARD OF AVON, or SWAN OF AVON English poet, dramatist, and actor, often called the English national poet and considered by many to be the greatest dramatist of all time. Shakespeare occupies a position unique in world literature. Other poets, such as Homer and Dante, and novelists, such as Leo Tolstoy and Charles Dickens, have transcended national barriers; but no writer's living reputation can compare with that of Shakespeare, whose plays, written in the late 16th and early 17th centuries for a small repertory theatre, are now performed and read more often and in more countries than ever before. The prophecy of his great contemporary, the poet and ...

  • Shakespeare And His Plays - 1,168 words
    Shakespeare and His Plays William Shakespeare was a supreme English poet and playwright, universally recognized as the greatest of all the dramatists. A complete, authoritative account of Shakespeare's life is lacking; much supposition surrounds relatively few facts. His day of birth is traditionally held on April 23, and he was baptized on April 24, 1564. He was the third of eight children, and was the eldest son of John Shakespeare. He was probably educated in a local grammar school. As the eldest son, Shakespeare would of taken over his father's business, but according to one account, he became a butcher because of reverses in his father's financial situation. According to another account ...

  • Shakespeare Life - 741 words
    Shakespeare Life England's greatest poet and playwright was born at Stratford-upon-Avon, the son of a tradesman and Alderman of Stratford, John Shakespeare in 1564. William, the eldest son, and third child (of eight) was baptised on 26th April 1564 and probably educated at Stratford Grammar School, but little is known of his life up to his eighteenth year. He did not go to University and his younger contemporary and fellow-dramatist, Ben Johnson, would later speak disparagingly of his "small Latin, and less Greek" in the eulogy prefaced to the Firs Folio. However the Grammar School curriculum would have provided a formidable linguistic, and to some extent literary, education. Although, in 15 ...

  • William Shakespeares Tragedies - 836 words
    William Shakespeare`S Tragedies Shakespeare is not our poet but the worlds, stated by W. S. Landor in 1846 (Lamb 340). William Shakespeare has given the world a whole new perspective on poetry. Usually the pieces he has written are either hated or loved. He has written comedies, romances, and tragedies. All of his pieces have been wonderful but the ones that stand out the most are his tragedies. The elements he uses in his tragedies set them above all the rest. All the tragedies, which include Romeo and Juliet; Hamlet; King Lear; Othello; MacBeth, all share similar characteristics. Most people think that the main element in Shakespeares tragedies is death, but this is untrue. William Shakesp ...
