    Essay On The First Folio

    • 1739 Words
    • 7 Pages

    related to English literature. Gallaudet University has recently had this book on display to honor William Shakespeare’s works and life as one of the world’s greatest playwrights to ever live. During the month of October Gallaudet University hosted an exhibit of William Shakespeare’s First Folio. The ‘First Folio’ is a collection of 36 plays written by Shakespeare and put into one volume. Two of Shakespeare’s closest friends and colleagues; John Heminge and Henry Condell edited and published the folio. After Shakespeare died in 1616, his two friends realized that none of his works were properly published, and decided to collect the works themselves and print them to honor their friend’s name forever. After seven years of gathering his plays they started to print in 1623. It is believed by experts that Heminge and Condell had 750 total copies printed, but either due to damage or being lost over the years, there are now only 235 known copies left in the world. One collector on William Shakespeare’s works was a man named Henry Folger, who owned numerous copies of his works, including multiple First Folios. He originally wanted to build a museum, but later realized his collection was so extensive that he would have to instead build a library. Today the Folger’s library owns 82 copies of the First Folio, and this year to celebrate the memorial of the 400th anniversary of William Shakespeare’s death, they have decided to display a nationwide exhibit. A Folio will go to all fifty…

Linda Ellerbee 's statement reminded me of the main characters in the stories "The Devil and Tom Walker" and "Rip Van Winkle". Tom and Rip are two…

    What does Zinn mean by “Under Control?” What I believe Zinn means by using the phrase “under control” is that the government had the opposite of over control. It is apparent the government lacked control in just about every aspect during this time. Meaning the system was out of control because there was a lack of control. The first indication that the government was loosing control during this time was found in the view of the United States citizens. People no longer had any trust in or showed…

    “Ever’body’s askin’ that. What we comin’ to? Seems to me we don’t never come to nothin’. Always on the way. Always goin’ and goin’,” Casy stated in chapter 13 of the Grapes of Wrath. The end of the novel is strange, and incredibly open-ended. It is never revealed what happens to the Joads or who finally makes it in the end. It isn’t even known if the starving man actually survives. The final act and image in the novel is also a bit out there, with Rose of Sharon suckling this grown man to keep…

    Critical Pedagogy A lens through which the disadvantages faced by many people in regard to their ethnicity and gender, and how this effect their ability to learn, is the learning theory of critical pedagogy.
