... to Bianca to find a mate for Katherine in order for them to vie for Bianca's love. Many critics of the play condemn it for the blatant sexist attitude it has toward women but closer examination of the play and the intricacies of its structure reveal that it is not merely a story of how men should 'put women in their place'. The play is a comedy about an assertive woman coping with how she is expected to act in the society of the late sixteenth century and of how one must obey the unwritten rules of a society to be accepted in it. Although the play ends with her conforming to the society, this is in action only, not in mind, as she assumes the role of the obedient ...

... blood symbolized death, guilt, and pain, then surely water symbolized cleansing and peace, and is used in this regard in many literary pieces. In fact, even in the bible, Pontious Pilate washed his hands in water after sentencing Jesus to be crucified. However, Macbeth mentions that all of the water in the sea would turn red from the blood on his hands; which leads me to the conclusion that blood was a much more powerful symbol than water in this play. In Macbeth, light and dark was used in a classic sense. Light symbolized all that is good, and it is no coincidence that when a scene included Banquo or another of the innocent victims in this play, the s ...

... and ideal prince, and insane madman, who from an outburst of passion and rage slays Polonius with no feeling of remorse (Wallace).

A certain convocation of political worms a e'en at him." (Act IV, scene III, lines 20-21) Hamlet's behavior throughout the play, especially towards Ophelia, is inconsistent. He jumps into Ophelia's grave, and fights with Laertes in her grave. During the fight with Laertes in Ophelia's grave, Hamlet professed how much he loved her when he said, "Fort ...

... style of television journalism. 60 Minutes changed the way that the American public receives its television news, stemming forth a whole new format of television broadcast journalism. 60 Minutes has a vast history of stories covered, yet the format has remained unchanged. Don Hewett, creator and producer of 60 Minutes, has been the subject of much criticism for his stubbornness. Since its origin, 60 Minutes has continued to adhere to the same formula that made it such a success. The hidden-camera interviews, the surprising of unsuspecting alleged crooks with a bombardment of questions, the longevity of the featured reporters, all of these are what m ...

... environment of competition that promotes false flattery, among many other things as he divides his kingdom in relation to the amount of love his daughters profess to him.

Cordelia is the only one of the three sisters who cannot fully participate in the competition to gain her father's inheritance by engaging in false flattery. Instead of trying to out due her sisters, she merely describes her love in relation to their filial bond. Although her father views this as a degrading insult and banishes her, it is shown that thr ...

... trouble with Caesar in power, which helps build suspense early in the play. To convince Brutes conclusively, cassius forged letters and threw them into Brutus's window where he was sure to find them. Shakespeare wrote this statement: "we will awake him and be sure of him. This is a very powerful statement that builds suspense because the reader most likely feels that Brutes will join in and want to assassinate Caesar, yet the reader is uncertain as to whether or not the plan will work. These events are very suspenseful as they lead up to the assassination of Caesar. The next series of suspenseful events that foreshadow Caesar's assassination happen on a very ...

Tuesday, is the first day of the week where we will go out and distribute 200 of the ads to places such as Best buy and Gateway.
