  • The Tempest And Into The Wild Comparison

    Discoveries are an integral and profound aspect of the human experience but are arguably most significant in their capacity to incite personal transformations. William Shakespeare’s play ‘The Tempest’ and Sean Penn’s film ‘Into the Wild’ clearly reflect this idea, with the protagonists of both texts irreversibly changed by their discoveries. In ‘The Tempest’ Prospero’s scheming prompts a rediscovery of his humanity that allows him to forgive his enemies, better himself and avoid tragedy.…

  • Iago Character Analysis Of Othello

    Iago talks with Cassio long enough to learn that it doesn’t take much to get him drunk because Cassio is not much of a drinker (Bevington, 2014). When he sees that Cassio is already drunk from one glass of wine, he states, “If I can fasten but one cup upon him, With that which he hath drunk tonight already, He’ll be as full of quarrel and offense As my young mistress' dog” (Shakespeare, 2014. 2.3. 45-47). In other words, Iago plans to influence Cassio to drink until he cannot handle…

  • Multiple Omens In The Tragedy Of Julius Caesar, Portia And Calpurnia

    Shakespeare used multiple omens to foreshadow the deaths of Caesar and Brutus. One such omen was the symbolization of the female characters of the play. The women of William Shakespeare's The Tragedy of Julius Caesar, Portia and Calpurnia, are portrayed as weak, not as women of power. Portia was unable to get Brutus to tell him what was wrong with him, even after getting on her knees and begging him. “And upon my knees I charm you, by my once-commended beauty, by all your vows of love and that…

  • Comparison Of Iago And Hedda Gabler

    William Shakespeare’s Othello and Henrik Ibsen’s Hedda Gabler both have master manipulators who are the center of their plays. It would be fair to compare both Iago and Hedda in the ways that they monopolize themselves on others. Although both characters portray manipulation in different ways they both are feeding off of the power aspect that they gain from manipulating people that they are close to. In their respective plays, they not only seem to be the dominate characters but also seem to go…
