Titanic: The Rich And The Poor
... for lice as they entered the boat through a small door on the lower deck. It was no coincidence that the poor people’s quarters were below the rich people’s. The director of the movie created large, elegant suites for the rich. These rooms were filled with beautiful pictures on the well-papered walls, beautiful carpet, extravagant furniture, and windows with blinds and drapes. The rooms the poor stayed in were very small rooms with no pictures on the gray wall and no furniture except a bunk bed, of which whomever slept on top had to be careful to not bump his head on the ceiling. The poor weren’t even sure who th ...
Review Of Musical Singin In The Rain
... musicians, somewhat at odds with his tale of music classes.
The problem is that she is both empty-headed and vain, a combination which he privately despises while they show a united, romantic front to their adoring public. After the successful showing, Don is forced to escape from his voracious fans by leaping into a passing car driven by Kathy Selden (Debbie Reynolds). She is amazed but plays it cool, pretending not to recognise Don and putting down the talents of movie actors. Although Kathy pretends to be a real stage actress, her abilities become obvious to Don when she leaps out of a cake at the after-show ...
... of lines Shakespeare discusses Hamlet’s “dull revenge”. These two words “dull” and “revenge” are contrasts to each other. The word “revenge” describes strong, powerful and intense feelings while the word “dull” describes weak and boring feelings. The contradiction of words is used to describe what Hamlet thinks about his own vengeance of his father’s death with Claudius. He feels that he hasn’t given his best effort to revenge his uncle and therefore calls his revenge “dull” which is a powerful way to describe his feelings. We get another look into the mind of Hamlet when he is talking about his thoughts tha ...
The first killing by showed how Macbeth could be a ruthless savage. It was a noble killing but the way Macbeth killed Macdonwald was a savage display of sickness.
"Till he unseam'd him from the nave to the chaps,
And fix'd his head upon our battlements" (Act 1, Scene 2:line22, 23)
Macbeth was not a bad man at first he was a very noble ally to Duncan. When Macbeth he saw the Three Witches everything changed. They told him things he wanted to here and he believed them.

The Crucible: John Proctor Is A Tragic Hero
... seem to convey that tragedy
revolves around two universal aspects: fear and freedom. "The Crucible" is
a direct parallel to the multiple ideals of tragedy and thus centers around
John Proctor's fear and freedom while he exists as a tragic hero.
The first stage in the process of establishing the tragic hero for
Miller was relaying the characteristics of John Proctor. It was essential
that Proctor be viewed as the so called "good guy" in the plot, one who
stands out or the audience can relate to. He is described as a "farmer in
his middle thirties" with a " powerful body" and a "steady manner", and is
already bei ...
The Caretaker By Pinter: A Play Can Be Confrontational, Challenging And Disturbing To The Values And Assumptions Of An Audience. Discuss With Close
... The play attacks the notion that there are no absolute
truths or realities. Pinter is therefore concerned with what exists as unknown
and intangible to humanity. His theatre interrogates the truth of nature and
realities of language and demonstrates that much of what the audience regards as
fact is fiction as he explores the uncertainty of human existence.
When an audience of the 1960's went to the theatre, it can generally be assumed
that they had preconceived ideas about what they expected and what they are
going to gain from the theatrical experience. The traditional attitudes towards
theatre and the conve ...
Macbeth: Blood Will Have Blood
... to wash them, but has difficulty with removing all of the stain. These are the first signs of blood in this great tragedy of Macbeth.
Another well known quotation that was said by Macbeth is, "I will have blood, they say; blood will have blood." (3.4.151) This was said by Macbeth, as he was having one of his many mental breakdowns. These breakdowns were caused by just this issue of a bloody play. Macbeth created the bloodlines, and now he must suffer the consequences.
"Out damned spot, out, I say!", (5.1.37) said by Lady Macbeth as she is being watched by the physic doctor and the gentlewoman. They both watch as ...
Oedipus: Sometimes Things Are Better Left Unknown
... troubles began when he went in search of answers to
his fate. If Oedipus would have just let life take its natural course, he
most likely would never have found out the horrific details of his life.
It would not have changed the fact that he killed his father, and married
his mother, but he never had to find that out. If Oedipus would not have
gone to the oracle in search of his fate, he would have lived a life
without the fear of knowing what lay ahead for him. Instead, he finds out
his fate, and tries to avoid his destiny by doing things to decrease his
chances of the prophecy being fulfilled. In the end ...

Shakespeare's "Sonnet 50"
... point, his grief will truly be over.
The beast that he rides, which would most likely be a horse, is introduced in stanzas 5-8. The horse "plods" along slowly as if, "by some instinct" it knows that the speaker doesn't really want to leave. The speaker "lov'd not speed, being made from thee." "Thee" refers to the person the speaker is parting with. The horse is, in a sense, the speaker's heart, reluctant to keep moving, although it must bear his grief.
The speaker, in stanzas 9-12, frequently gets frustrated and tries to force himself on, as shown by the "bloody spur" which indicates repeated use. The groan that th ...
