The Birth Of A Nation: The Pros And Cons
[ view this term paper ]Words: 2331 | Pages: 9

... it’s hard to believe that he is not mentioned today every time a film is put out. It is actually quite accurate to say that more or less every person in the world is interested in films, and has seen many films in their lives, yet film students are practically the only people that know who Griffith is. The reasons for this can possibly be summed up in saying simply, Birth of a Nation. Although this is regarded as his masterpiece, if it was never made, it is quite possible that his name would have remained as known as Beethoven. The problem is that it is such an amazing movie on a technological and aesthetic l ...

Iago's Motivation
[ view this term paper ]Words: 1248 | Pages: 5

... Iago undeniably has an unquenchable thirst for power and domination. Critics such as M. R. Ridley believe that the ability to hurt is the most convincing display of one's power (Ridley lxi). Iago has a deep, inbred desire to cause and view intolerable suffering. The power of Iago is exercised when he prepares and then implements an evil plan designed to inflict man with the most extreme amounts of anguish possible. Iago controls the play, he brilliantly determines how each character shall act and react. He is a pressing advocate of evil, a pernicious escort, steering good people toward their own vulgar des ...

Hamlet: Emotions Of Despair, Sadness, Anger, And Inner Peace
[ view this term paper ]Words: 1067 | Pages: 4

... Hamlet wishes they tell the King and Queen that he has "lost all mirth," in this world so "foul and pestilent." In his "To be or not to be" soliloquy, he expresses his despair through thoughts of suicide, suggesting that suicide is an easy way to end life's conflicts. But luckily he concludes that the fear of an unknown afterlife is what keeps us living. All of Hamlet's thoughts of despair can be understood when one looks at the horrible conflicts Hamlet goes through. Sorrow, perhaps the most evident emotion, is very well developed throughout the play. Initially, the only cause of Hamlet's sorrow is his father's de ...

Gloucester worried about Lear and this revealed Gloucester ‘s loyalty to the old king. Gloucester told his decision to Edmund after Gloucester finished the letter. Edmund decided to tell Cornwall about Gloucester ‘s action. Edmund told Cornwall that his father was traitor ...

Richard III: Impact On The Audience
[ view this term paper ]Words: 576 | Pages: 3

... them in a personal moral dilemma. This technique is the way that the audience is made to feel empathy for the vicious Richard. Richard is a terrible man. That fact cannot be disputed. He killed anyone who even tried to question him or was in his way to the throne. This included even the innocently helpless children who actually have the true right to the throne. This would make any audience hate the man, however, Shakespeare gives Richard a string with which to pull at the audience’s heart: his grotesque deformities and the effect they have on Richard and his life. Richard uses this string to his advantage ...

A Midsummer Nights Dream: Demetrius' Pursuit Of Hermia

... the beginning of the play, Demetrius wants to marry Hermia; however, she does not love him. She instead loves a man named Lysander. While pursuing Hermia, Helena falls in love with Demetrius, and does what she can to make him fall him love with her. But he holds no interest. Oberon, King of the Fairies, sees Helena’s pain and orders Robin Goodfellow, a hobgoblin, to anoint Demetrius’ eyes with a love potion so that he will fall in love with Helena. The plan goes accordingly. Demetrius is pursuing Hermia and asking for her hand in marriage. But she declines for she is in love with another. Eugeus, Hermias fat ...

Review Of "Saving Private Ryan"

... in the wind. Given that we too often take images at face value, it's easy to figure this for half-ass patriotism. We must look more closely. This isn't standard-issue symbology. The flag is blasted out, bleeding of all colors. It signals that something fundamental has been lost forever. Saving Private Ryan is a patriotic film. How could it not be, possessed of such reverence for the suffering endured by so many soldiers in the defense of a nation? As difficult as it may be to distinguish between national pride and blind nationalism, Spielberg makes his film by insisting on visualizing an overwhelming sorr ...

Masaccio: The Holy Trinity

... is at the center of the masonry altar, because this is the eye level of the spectator, who looks up at the Trinity and down at the tomb. The vanishing point, five feet above the floor level, pulls both views together. By doing this, an illusion of an actual structure is created. The interior volume of this 'structure' is an tension of the space that the person looking at the work is standing in. The adjustment of the spectator to the pictured space is one of the first steps in the development of illusionistic painting. Illusionistic painting fascinated many artists of the Renaissance and Baroque periods. The prop ...

"Planet Of The Apes"

... not be as we know it today. Consider how valuable language would have been to the mutes in the movie. When they were being chased and whipped like animals, would they not have been able to plot an escape to avoid capture and imprisonment by the apes if they had been able to communicate? Yes, they would have been free to live as equals. The apes and the humans would have been co-inhabitants of the earth rather than creatues in a superior- inferior relationship. "Planet of the Apes" is a perfect example of why language is so important. Another reason I am disputing Mr. Burrough's opinion of this movie is i ...

Hamlet: Spying
[ view this term paper ]Words: 1227 | Pages: 5

... the Ghost, could be imagining the Ghost. Hamlet will reassure his new suspicions of Claudius killing his father by spying on the King of Denmark. This gives Hamlet two good reasons to kill Claudius. First, he hated the fact that his uncle married his mother in just a few months after his dad died. Second, his father's ghost wants revenge on Claudius. Most of the time Hamlet does his own spying. He tries to force Ophelia to give him information, but she ends up lying to him in ACT III Scene i. Hamlet: Get thee to a nunnery. Why wouldst thou be a breeder of sinners? I am myself indifferent honest, but yet I ...
